Cloud-based access control solutions are able to deliver remote access and instant management to protect the premise. As access control and video management are already key security systems, the shift to an open platform model is only growing. For example, Vanderbilt’s solution allows access to the system from any device, allowing flexibility for staff working remotely. Currently, the majority of Enterprises and many SMBs have either already made or are making the process of shifting resources to the cloud.
The advances in modern access control systems have resulted in systems becoming much more mobile. Whether deployed for the protection of particular premises application, or even both, systems have become increasingly flexible and mobile over recent years. Cloud-based access control systems offer many advantages: they are cost-effective, can be tailored to suit individual needs, offer the ability to control multiple locations simultaneously, and also enable the use of sensors such as cameras and fingerprint scanners.
