Demand for biometric access control systems surges across Africa

Tensor Biometric Access Control Readers

Demand for contactless and biometric access control systems has surged in Africa over the past few years, a recent news report has been able to reveal.

Contactless technology and hassle-free integration with existing IT systems are two key trends driving the development of biometric access control technology within the corporate security space across Africa. As such, there is an increasing demand by businesses across the continent for cost effective, easily managed access control and Time & Attendance (T&A) solutions.

Experts in the field have argued that the key drivers for the further growth of access control is its ability to keep pace with its physical security industry counterparts in its ability to adapt to consumer market trends.

This is due to specific influences including the dominance of cloud storage, the focus on enterprise access control, the adoption of interoperability standards and a changing relationship with IT departments.
