The main trends in access control for 2021

Now, more than ever, organizations feel the need to protect their premises, equipment, and other valuables and appliances that are kept on site. This is why these organizations should address a more robust, intelligent and multi-layered type of security, using the latest versions of available technologies.

The desire to provide the latest security technologies is a deep understanding of the current niche market direction and future trends.

For this reason, we have put together a short guide that will explain what you can expect from the access control market this year.

Role-based access control

A recent security market study tells us that in the near future, organizations will adopt access control based on previously assigned roles. Whether they are customers, employees, installers, partners, the press or administrators, they all need access to the premises, but not all at the same level. You can’t afford to let customers walk around the organization unhindered, we know.


The introduction of biometric security on the market has added an even thicker layer of security and constantly eliminates the vulnerabilities of the spaces that adopt it.

Biometric solutions call into question the element of human error in terms of security. By scanning staff physical features such as fingerprints, facial recognition, iris recognition, etc., biometric security eliminates the need for cards, keys, and tags, items that can be easily stolen or lost.

Facial recognition in access control

Facial recognition technology is constantly evolving and improving with the help of AI and Machine Learning technology. Facial recognition access control systems can be virtually integrated with existing systems and, once interconnected with Deep Learning technologies, can provide high levels of staff detection and recognition.

Analysis and Intelligence

At the end of this year, the tools of identity analysis and intelligence (IAI) are prone to providing value for business, beyond access control tools, in up to 60% between enterprises. However, identities must be indexed in a way that links business operations through information about the functions that each holds.

The emergence of IoT (Internet of Things)

IoT has been a major trend in various industries in recent years and will continue to grow as more and more sensors are added to other sensors. The data collected by them and their analysis gives the start of applications such as industrial, intelligent management of building construction, event management and much more.

The physical security industry enjoys countless benefits by gaining new information for emergency awareness and management, as well as opportunities to provide value-added services and business prospects.

Mobile and Cloud Networks

Mobile applications are critical to physical security, and this trend is growing rapidly in terms of the development and use of cloud-based services, as well as the ability to access security devices via a smartphone or web browser. 2019 witnessed the launch of numerous mobile applications created to manage surveillance cameras, receive automatic alerts for various events and offer the possibility to grant or limit access to a facility.

This trend will continue to dominate the security market, as long as consumers want to benefit from connectivity, mobility and ease of use.
