The transition to wireless access control

Wireless locks remain one of the fastest growing segments of the electronic access control industry, especially in mature countries. But how many commercial premises still rely on mechanical keys in 2015? And how does end-users perceive reliability and cost-effectiveness and training requirements of wireless access control? The 2016 version of the 'Wireless Access Control Market report' looks closer at these issues.

Wireless Access Control in 2016

Given the critical advantages wireless technology has over both mechanical locks and wired access control, we would expect to find the market moving steadily towards wireless. Following up on the 2014 survey, this new report certainly backs up that expectation. The report also examines how electronic access control can secure openings and areas other than standard doors and entrances, like IT servers, safes and outdoor structures.

At January’s Intersec exhibition forecasts of 15% annual growth in the Middle East region alone were suggested. ASSA ABLOY’s own data predicts that wireless locks could make up 30% of the total market within a decade. The potential is there. But when ASSA ABLOY worked with last year on a major market survey of security managers, industry insiders and decision-makers, we encountered some big surprises.
