Axis Communications Enters the Physical Access Control Market

Axis Communications enters the physical access control market by introducing a network door controller with built-in web-based software. The AXIS A1001 Network Door Controller is a complement to Axis’ existing portfolio of innovative network video products and creates unique integration possibilities for partners and end users.

“Bringing product innovation to the physical access control market is a natural step in Axis’ development as there is a strong connection between access control and video surveillance. As the market leader in network cameras, Axis plays an important role in driving convergence to IP-based products in video surveillance. We now apply that expertise in IP technology to the physical access control market in the same way. The physical access control market is primed to make the shift to open IP technology,” said Ray Mauritsson, President and CEO, Axis Communications.
