Proprietary ecosystems of access control hardware and software have enjoyed a long history in the physical security market. Growing user demand for unfettered and unlimited third-party integrations into these powerful platforms are now driving new open platform approaches and the adoption of interoperability standards, that are changing the dynamic of access control and its role within the smart building environment. Common interfaces gaining steam in the market are not only driving interoperability between different hardware and software at the access control system level but will provide the necessary pathways between sensors and management platforms to be able to receive and export data in a universal manner. Learn why access control is poised for a pivotal role in the smart building environment and why interoperability standards are a crucial part of the process.

Learning Objectives:
1. Review the open platform approach as the building block for future IoT functionality.
2. Distinguish how to implement access control standards to optimize the IoT environment.
