How IP impacts physical Access Control

This paper examines the impact of IP technology on the Access Control Sector of the industry which has yet to fully adopt IP and is still several years behind that of CCTV.

In looking at the adoption of IP-enabled devices on the video surveillance market we can draw parallels as to how the advances of network based technology may follow a similar path in the world of access control. We will examine the reasons for this and look at some of the emerging IP based technologies that are gaining traction in the world of access control.

How Security is used within a Data Centre
