Access Control (Industrial Report) - UK - December 2014

“There is potential for access control products to add more commercial value in terms of business intelligence as applications in the airport sector have shown. Innovation in the access control market is expected to increase due to the arrival of new companies in the sector.”
– Ben Harris, Industrial Analyst

This report discusses the following key topics:

  • How can manufacturers extend the functionality of access control?
  • What end-user markets are expected to generate significant demand for access control?
  • What is the expected impact of the influx of new brands in the market?

This report covers the UK market for access control security alarms and systems, including sales and rental income.

The access control market includes stand-alone equipment, audio and video entry systems, and online equipment. Stand-alone equipment includes equipment, such as cylinders, locks, readers and keypads, which is locally programmed and not linked to any other system. On the other hand, network equipment uses readers linked to a computer that manages a number of access points in the system.

Typically, an access control system comprises a key or smart card, a reader, a remote-site controller, a network and a host.

In its simplest form, a remote-site controller will take a signal from a card reader, process the validity of the card (either internally or via communication with a host) and activate an output, such as opening a door or a turnstile. More sophisticated systems will do more than this, for example by holding a portion of the database in memory so that it can make immediate access decisions (whether or not communication is in place with the host).

The system host can be considered as the centre of the system, communicating with the remote controller, providing a real time user interface for event tracking and administration, and collating transaction information for subsequent reports.

Access control systems are used to restrict physical access to car parks, buildings and designated areas within buildings. The same system may also monitor alarm points within a facility or around the perimeter; activate and automatically control CCTV cameras; control the local environment by monitoring conditions and interacting with sub-systems, such as air conditioning, internal and external lighting and fire alarms.

A credential is the tool that allows a person to gain access through a system. A credential can be a key card or smart card, a pin number or a biometric feature. This latter group includes fingerprint reading, facial recognition, voice recognition, retina, signature, facial geometry and DNA matching. To date, this sector only forms a very small part of the overall access control market, with a limited number of commercial applications.

With such a high level of industry fragmentation it is not possible to review all the companies in a report of this type. This report is not a directory of industry participants, and the following provides a synopsis of some of the operators selected as being representative of a cross sample of types of operator rather than necessarily the largest industry participants.
