Wireless locks extend the reach of access control

As building security becomes smarter, the need for electronic access control grows. Wired access points and security doors have long been the backbone. Yet at the same time, even buildings with extensive electronic systems leave mechanically locked doors unmonitored and unguarded — and certainly not “smart”. Mechanical locks cannot be connected. Thankfully, the latest generation of wireless locks can replace them easily and integrate them seamlessly with almost any access system. https://futurelab.assaabloy.com/en/wireless-locks-extend-the-reach-of-access-control/

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. https://futurelab.assaabloy.com/en/the-wireless-access-control-market-in-2016/

Busting the myths around wireless access control

EXPERT OPINION. Let’s begin with something that’s hardly front-page news: the market potential for wireless access control is huge. 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 IFSECglobal.com last year on a major market survey of security managers, industry insiders and decision-makers, we encountered some big surprises. https://futurelab.assaabloy.com/en/busting-the-myths-around-wireless-access-control/
