A Growing Security Industry Takes Stock in Expanding Markets

As circuits start to heat up and access control cards get swiped in this first year of the new millennium, the security industry continues to look for new and exciting mediums in which to delve. One of these new areas happens to be related with one of America’s greatest loves: the automobile.

Our February 2001 cover story, entitled “RFID Grows in Access Control Market With Vehicle ID Systems” focuses on the use of radio frequency identification (RFID) in vehicle applications. Many companies, communities and even the government have begun to use this form of access control for identification.

This technology might turn into a moneymaking proposition that gives your company the horsepower it’s been seeking.

Working around the busy schedule of the cathedral, problem solving, as well as coping with the pressure of helping to safeguard the venue’s 1 million visitors made this project a difficult one for the installing company, Post Alarm Systems of Arcadia, Calif. The security company also had to make sure to do the job while leaving the beauty of the Crystal Cathedral intact.
