At the Forefront of What’s Next Technological advancements have transformed access control and the way facilities can use it. It’s no longer just about security—access control involves holistic management of a facility’s operations. EAC systems drive cost efficiencies by reducing energy usage indoors and locks and by automating lighting and HVAC systems. They protect valuable assets and reduce costs associated with re-keying locks—all of which improves a facility’s bottom line. By bringing together security staff, IT experts and other stakeholders, state-of-the-art EAC systems streamline operations across large facilities. They achieve not only safety goals, but other facility priorities too, including staying ahead of inevitable technological changes.
