Specifying a "non-proprietary" access control system

April 20, 2012     |    Author Steve Bocking

Non-Proprietary: This is a term that can apply to a few different aspects of an access control system. The first and most important, in my opinion, is that the system is available from several different sources (integrators) for procurement and servicing. There are still several products on the market that are the integrator's "house brand", meaning it is only available from that one integrator for procurement and servicing. I am not knocking the quality of these proprietary systems in any way; I just believe it is not ideal for an end-user to be locked into one supplier - especially when there are several enterprise class access control manufacturers who make their product available through a roster of integrators for procurement and servicing. … Read more
