Access Control Should Always be the First Layer of Security
Security industry professionals seem to hold differing opinions on whether video surveillance or access control is the predominant platform when implementing an integrated security solution. Truth of the matter is that access control systems are more prevalent in terms of the sheer number of systems deployed, the size and scale of deployments and actual daily engagement by users. And for good reason! When a potentially threatening event unfolds, an access control system can instantly shut down a facility, or specific areas within it, potentially saving lives.
