The Security Week That Was: Sept. 7, 2007

A weekly surveillance of news shaping your profession


Say access control and most of us picture things like proximity cards and card readers and also access control panels stashed in nearby closets. But the panels, says access control firm Isonas, may not be part of that picture in the future. On Sept. 18 (Tuesday), Isonas will be presenting a webinar with SecurityInfoWatch.com about its "panel-free" access control technology. Doing away with the panel is something that has been dreamed about for a long time, a vision for a time where the devices could either have the logic built into them, or the logic could be networked from a main control system. Webinar registration is free; attendees will have a chance to participate in a live web-based Q&A as part of the program.
