Much as the video surveillance industry changed from proprietary single source providers to one dominated by strong VMS manufacturers and camera manufacturers; the access control space will continue to change rapidly. Businesses and end users more than ever will be able to choose ISONAS hardware products and choose the best software platform for their project, resulting in a lower total cost of ownership. They will gain a new freedom from not being trapped in a proprietary system and will be able to operate a complete integrated access control system with best of breed VMS system. The market research is all showing that IP access control is gaining significant strength and growing at rates that we experienced in the IP surveillance world for the last 8 -10 years.
