Internet of Trusted Things (IoTT)

As a growing range of industry segments are embracing the power of IoT, the need for trusted identities will increase. This will be decisive for real-time location systems and proof of presence solutions where the identity of people or things in a physical space is crucial.

No limits for intelligent readers

Card readers were once highly proprietary and difficult to install, and they mainly served the single purpose of granting access to a building or a section within a building. Today, card readers and controllers are becoming network appliances and as such may play a vital role in a company’s business system, according to Dave Adams, Senior Product Marketing Manager, Access Management at HID Global. https://futurelab.assaabloy.com/en/no-limits-for-intelligent-readers/

Get the Edge

Intelligent access control has been around for some time – but traditionally, the brains of the operation were actually hidden in a mechanical room, where a controller managed multiple doors via miles of custom wiring. This approach could make adding new doors and upgrading systems costly – particularly since most components of the systems (except cards used for access) were proprietary. Accordingly, facilities wishing to add new features would often have to perform a ‘forklift upgrade’ and completely replace their systems. https://futurelab.assaabloy.com/en/get-the-edge/
