Podcast: The Marriage of Security Technology and Connectivity

Sept. 27, 2022

The marriage between today’s security technology and connectivity provides service, and relevant and future ready access solutions.

Security technology can intersect with property management platforms and also operate in isolation (independent from a property’s operating systems). Today’s multihousing properties offer an excellent model for best practices in the security technology and connectivity relationship.

The keys to success include:

1.     A comprehensive understanding of the level and location security is needed

2.      Budget parameters

3.      A modular approach that meets current needs and is future ready to accept new technology

4.      Understanding the Access and Connectivity link

5.      Navigating hardware expectations for full solution provision

6.      Ancillary opportunities to leverage manufacturing for additional services

7.      Expectation on implementation – the devil is in the details (or the certification)
