Integrated Access Control Systems and IOT to become the backbone of building security
Integrated access control systems which fully leverage the advantages provided by IoT (Internet of Things) technologies will become the backbone of building security, experts believe.
Access control systems that adopt and drive open standards for interoperability will provide extreme scalability and increased ROI, while delivering better integration capabilities. Customers seeking to integrate new access control technologies, plus intrusion, elevator control, building automation, IoT and third-party applications into a common platform will be able to manage these systems more efficiently via a single infrastructure.
Additionally, the integration of cloud and IoT technologies with traditional access control systems will drive new, powerful tools that simplify and accelerate the deployment and management of PACS (physical access control). Cloud-based monitoring services that emerge from combining PACS with smart building applications will deliver robust analytics that proactively pinpoint and troubleshoot potential system failures. They will also monitor secure connections between peripherals and trigger firmware updates to address potential cyber threats. IoT functionality embedded into PACS panels will enable connections to the cloud-based services to simplify activation of these capabilities.
Organisations will begin to see the pay-off of using cyber-secure, interoperable solutions that leverage the cloud and IoT as customers embrace open hardware as the foundation for their PACS.
