ASSA ABLOY Door Security Solutions and Texas Instruments Discuss Security Issues in SecurityStockWatch.com Interviews


RYE BROOK, N.Y.--December 11, 2008 --(BUSINESSWire)--
"We see four large and concurrent forces converging together in the security market to create large changes in the way we manage and offer security solutions. Credential Convergence: The desire of end users to manage access control with a single credential has created the opportunity for 'credential convergence' that bridges mechanical and electromechanical technologies. For example, MEDECO's Hybrid key incorporates mechanical and RFID technologies such that a single credential can be used in a mechanical cylinder, with a typical HID reader, and the new MEDECO Hybrid eCylinder. This is an offline, battery powered access control system that wirelessly retrofits to a standard mechanical cylinder. The result is a suite of mechanical, offline and online openings managed from a single credential.

Network Convergence: End users are increasingly demanding the greater use of plug-and-play technologies based on open standards that make installation easier. This is true for other IT appliances and the opening is becoming just another appliance on the network." These are among the insights discussed by Mr. Martin Huddart, Vice President, Electronic Access Control, ASSA ABLOY (Stockholm: ASSAB.ST) Door Security Solutions (www.ASSAABLOYdss.com.)
