Innovation to Drive Uptake of Wireless Access Controls
Growing adoption of wireless technology has created a positive environment for the wireless access control market. This security measure has become a universally adopted standard. One of the main difference between wired and wireless access control is wireless access control does not require signaling and power cables for its operations, as it is operated on batteries and the communication part is done through transceivers or through cloud access. The main advantage of wireless access control system is its ability to integrate with existing access control system and other security systems like video surveillance, intrusion detection, fire alarms, and others.
Wireless access controls systems is being continuously upgraded with new innovative components. For instance, the use of smart phones for access controls and the use of electronic door locks. One of the key trends in the wireless access control is the wide adoption of access control in the residential market due to rising security concerns. Wireless access control systems are mostly preferred in residential as it does not require cabling and wiring and thus the interior of the house is not disrupted. Also the use of smartphone in access control can further drive the wireless access control market.
