NAPCO: How a Single Source Supplier Can Share in Your Success
New opportunities in access control hardware, software, communications and wireless solutions have skyrocketed.
Currently at $10 billion, with 2029 projections of $15 billion, access control is one of the fastest-growing, all-encompassing segments of today’s increasingly integrated security industry.
With technology evolving faster in a year than in decades past — driven by advancements in computing, Internet and network availability and bandwidth — new opportunities in hardware, software, communications and wireless solutions have skyrocketed. Automation and coding are more accessible.
Cloud-based applications are all but the norm (adoption accelerated by COVID-19). AI programs are growing in implementation and popularity.
Sadly, escalating violence, too, is yet another growth driver for access control and security management systems — i.e., limiting authorized access, protecting occupants, managing visitors and threat levels, and intelligent video processing in real-time for directing response and forensically to tell the tale.
An endless epidemic of violence and active shooter situations in schools, office and public spaces has heightened the demand for physical security and electronic access control solutions.
While the lure of opportunity and subscription-based business has attracted new manufacturers and large tech players to the security marketplace, the real litmus test is their staying power. I’ve heard it well said, software is software, but hardware is hard.
And the resulting churn of new proprietary products, revisions, plus the ebb and flow of discontinued product lines can cost integrators/dealers incalculable time and money.
Not surprisingly, they’re continuously looking for a single source/manufacturer that considers access control, video and security synonymous and can reliably deliver a full range — from traditional enterprise-level systems to the massive SMB volume — of solutions.
For 50-plus years, NAPCO Security Technologies has been 100% dedicated to professional, long-lived security products, with expertise in labor-saving, code-compliant designs.
Recognizing there’s no one-size-fits-all solution, Napco continues to expand offerings, with integrated online access locks; embedded software-free all-in-one Linux-based access panels; and Continental Enterprise Systems (for which its access is best known).
Recently rebranded Napco Access Pro, it can proudly attest to offering “Every Access Solution From One Brand” and dependably doing so for the long run. — Judy Jones-Shand, V.P. Marketing, NAPCO Security Technologies
