Access control is not a new concept or idea; it’s been around for a very long time but it has advanced greatly as new technologies have become available. You can now have greater control over your security, from remotely checking on and locking your property and sharing temporary permissions or access codes with visitors directly from your smart phone – no more physical keys to lose or have stolen. How about being able to view the status of your home and even see live camera feeds remotely – knowing exactly what is going on while you are away.
