IP Access Control Systems
RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) technology is still the most prevalent technology in door access control systems. While RFID cards offer convenience and ease of use, a vast number of organizations are still relying on outdated 125 kHz technology from the 1990s.
No two clouds are the same. Although cloud services are generally considered secure, the internet remains a high-risk environment, and providers should follow some basic security rules. What are these rules and what should you require from the provider? You can find out in this article.
Whilst the future of access control is a hot topic in the industry currently, the history is also of great interest! Grab a coffee and let’s dive in to how we’ve evolved over millennia to arrive at the door access control systems we know today…
Access control readers are used to control access to a particular area or building. Or rather, simply put, who can go in, and who can’t! They come in all shapes and sizes and offer various features that enhance how they work: but there are loads to choose from and it can be overwhelming to know which is best for you and your needs.
Unfortunately, you see it quite often: an intercom outside a building’s main entrance with a separate card reader (from a different company) underneath. But why is it so common? There are two reasons why is this happening. Let’s discover them.
Integrating Door Access Control System Into Home Automation: 5 Things Installers and Integrators Need to Bear in Mind
Over the summer, the research firm ResearchAndMarkets published a report on the smart home automation market. It forecasted that the market will reach $187.8 billion globally by 2028, rising at a compound annual growth rate of 15.2% over that period. Part of this growth will come from home automation systems expanding to incorporate door access control technologies, a trend which is starting to become visible in many countries across the world.
With the growing rate of connected device to the internet, there are more opportunities for hackers to steal your data and possibly take control of your device(s). Here at 2N, we have written these five easy and effective steps which you can do, to make sure your data remains secure, and your IP devices remain yours.
How big is the home automation market worldwide? It’s a tough question to answer but analysts tend to estimate it at between $50 billion and $70 billion. What no one doubts is that the market is booming – with double-digit growth expected annually over the coming decade.
Most of us have used a QR code. Perhaps to help us quickly open a webpage or for quick payments in mobile banking. More recently, we may have used the QR code to demonstrate our vaccination or negative test status. But few people know that a Quick Response code can also be used to control access to a building. What are the advantages of this solution and how does it compare to others?
One of the most important trends in our industry is the growing demand for smarter, more comprehensive access control management. This is particularly true in the higher education sector, and nowhere more so than the United States.
Physical door access control system technology has been evolving at breakneck speed over the past few years. Much of the innovation in the sector has focused in two areas – mobile technology and biometrics (including facial recognition) – with companies placing bets on which they believe will grow fastest and even, potentially, emerge as the clear winner.
