Remee Wire & Cable has developed new Access Control Cables to address the latest trends in security systems. Remee’s latest advancements in its Vigilance line of security, alarm and control cables have been designed to meet the latest standards and requirements of the evolving security and controls industries.
An increasing number of professional security applications now use some form of biometric reader. More building management companies are looking into the use of these devices as a way of making their workers and residents feel more secure. With biometric devices at points of access, users have the option of dropping the requirement for physical cards entirely. They may instead rely on fingerprint or facial recognition to enter buildings.
Lock manufacturers are looking to create a single user-friendly platform that allows clients to have control over all aspects of their security. We have recently seen Vanderbilt, a major player in the physical access control space, expand their pooling of resources with ACT and SPC Connect. This is an attempt to build a unified access control and intrusion detection system.
The same thing is happening with the integration of video management platforms. Consumers are able to receive text message alerts about intruder detections on their security cameras.
Another access control technology that has grown in popularity is the use of mobile devices for access. Users can replace physical access cards with any preferred device that they can swipe over a physical access reader. The move towards the use of mobile devices for this purpose has pushed access providers to rely more on cloud platforms as the as a backbone for biometric and mobile solutions.
The Wiegand protocols govern communications around older access technologies used in locks, subways, buildings, and doors built back in the 1980s. Over time, these components have become more and more vulnerable to security breaches, and many “off-the-shelf” solutions offered today fail to provide proper protection against security strikes. The need for better access control security has pushed support for a replacement for Wiegand. Many access control experts are now advocating for the adoption of the Open Supervised Device Protocol (OSDP). The interoperable nature of OSDP makes it more flexible than Wiegand with regards to the options it can provide to end users.
With the use of IoT devices, access control systems can deliver data to the cloud in real-time, supported by access control wire and cable. This enables the conduction of remote diagnostics between systems. Better predictions will come about because of this, helping to figure out specific system requirements and ensure improved protection against potential vulnerabilities.
Remee Wire & Cable has followed these trends and made significant developments in their Vigilance line of Security, Alarm and Control cables to accommodate the latest requirements and standards in the industry. This product line features security cables, video CCTV cables for surveillance, fire alarm cables, lighting and shade control cables, thermostat control cables, and access control cables.
