Romancing Convenience & Security
|Back in the days, 'Security' |
often meant 'Inaccessability
Decades ago, people associated security with heavy metal bars, thick and sturdy latches, and stringent access control. Have you ever watched medieval movies, have you seen their city gates? If that didn’t scream out ‘security’, I don’t know what did. In a way, it reminds me of my childhood home’s door lock. It was a long thick wooden latch that covered the middle of the whole entire door; and it’d probably take an elephant to bang it open. Up until recent times, security providers took pride in projecting the image of ‘security’ together with ‘inaccessibility’. The image of a fierce huge security guard complete with firearms would hinder anybody to initiate something funny. Unless, of course, if you’re Rowan Atkinson.
|Nowadays, buildings such as Berlin’s Das Science Center|
Medizintechnik are becoming more sophisticated
|Balancing between convenience and security|
may not be as easy as it seems
In my humble opinion, if we can deliver both, why sacrifice one for the other? Security has indeed gotten smarter and right around the corner; FingerTec will be launching its latest products to the world, s-Kadex, H3i and Keylock 7700. Combining security and convenience has never looked this good.
