The way we operate and work has changed dramatically in recent years, with technology and flexibility becoming key factors in predicting success. Companies that are slow to adapt are frequently outpaced by competitors who are more agile. The same has held true for the security industry. Between increased adoption of cloud technology, the rise of hybrid working patterns and a high demand for interoperable tech in the workplace, access control technology trends have shifted to reflect what businesses need to stay competitive — and secure. 

A traditionally slow-moving industry, access control trends have made a seismic shift, with more sophisticated technology available from a growing subset of companies innovating in the space. Smartphone apps and sensor technology have upgraded the touchless access experience, turning that nice-to-have” into a necessity in just the past few years. 

With technology and the Internet of Things (IoT) permeating nearly every aspect of daily life, from smart home devices to keyless vehicles, it’s no surprise that smart technology is a physical security trend in the workplace now, too. That shift has also primed the general public to be able to quickly adapt to new technologies and methods for access control.

To future-proof your building and organization and leverage the technologies that are dominating the access control landscape, it’s important to stay informed about the newest technologies and access control trends in 2023.
