Most industry people are well aware that video surveillance attracts far more interest than access control/PSIM. An August 2010 acknowledgment by a website focused on convergence provides further validation of that point.
SecuritySquared examined their web traffic to discover:
"Anything that's remotely video-connected is sure to pull heavy numbers. Articles about identity and access management/access control definitely are sort of the art house features next to the video blockbusters. "
Our traffic patterns are quite similiar. Becuase we are video focused site, some access/PSIM proponents dismiss our traffic patterns. However, SecuritySquared aggressively focuses on convergence, access, PSIM, etc; Publishing dozens of articles (perhaps more than 50) on those topics in the last year.
This is one indicator of the relative challenges PSIM/convergence products face in adoption compared to video.
