Access Control is the Foundation for Your Smart Tech Future

A common perception is that access control serves only to keep bad people out. While that’s certainly a paramount concern, access control provides multiple services. Since it was first introduced in the 1980s and 1990s, access control technology has undergone a remarkable evolution.

In the past, magnetic stripe cards and 125-kHz low-frequency credentials were thought to be a significant improvement on manually operated locks and keys. However, this is no longer the case. Modern access credentials incorporate several security features, such as encryption and authentication protocols, making them intrinsically more safe than older credentials that are not encrypted and are considerably easier to copy.

Ancient castles had moats and drawbridges, today we have cloud-based, integrated access control systems available. In the age of digital transformation, some of the most beneficial aspects of modern access control have been left out of the conversation. Today, access control is about enabling movement into spaces. Within the realm of PropTech, access control serves as a fundamental component in enhancing visitor management, package and food delivery. Smart technology integrations make access control the foundational element of a full user experience. Smart thermostats can be set so a space never feels too hot or too cold. Smart light controls ensure that lights aren’t left on while the space is unoccupied. These green technologies appeal to tenants with an interest in sustainability. The future is integration, mobile access, connected to video and integrated with digital identity. The future looks very bright for access control.
