Smarter access control is becoming increasingly necessary as building security technology advances. Although wired security doors and access points have long served as the foundation of access control systems, the most recent generation of wireless locks can easily replace them and integrate with almost any access system. Recently, the number of products intended to install or function wirelessly has increased in the access control market, coinciding with greater demand for cloud-based solutions and mobile phone integration. However, many designers and specifiers are still hesitant to specify wireless systems unless they have no other option and thus risk falling behind the current trend.
Securing the future: The emergence of wireless technology within access control provides a compelling argument as to why wireless technology is the future of access control. We discuss the factors driving the shift from hardwired systems to wireless access control solutions. We then cover several misconceptions about wireless systems while noting recent advancements that have made previous concerns about the technology’s reliability, cost and flexibility obsolete. Finally, we look at why wireless technology is set to become the gold standard for access control.
Today’s access control users have more complex and sophisticated demands. They desire access control that does more than just unlock doors, including support for mobile credentials, integration with other security systems, cloud management, and sustainability. In this regard, ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions has succeeded, offering a range of wireless access control solutions that meet users’ various needs and requirements.
