The security industry is developing faster than ever before.
Technological development and digitalization play the leading role and shape the life of tomorrow.
Outsourcing scopes for facilities management is the future, with many proven business benefits, particularly in specialty scopes and technical services like access control.
"Buy experiences, not things" might sound like just another inspirational social media quote. However, it's the mantra that summarizes one of the tremendous paradigm shifts in consumer demand, which has been making waves in the global markets since the 1990s.
Like many great inventions in history, modern robots first existed in science fiction literature before they materialized in the real world.

Upon reading the acronym "BIM", one often thinks of the three-dimensional mapping of products in a digital model. But there's much more to it: With BIM, architects and planners can manage any information related to building design and represent processes, thus making data available at the right time and to the right extent.
Smart locks are the next frontier in IoT security tools. They're tough and convenient to use, making them an increasingly popular choice for both corporate and consumers.
Door closers usually don't get as much attention as the locks or a handle. However, they're still crucial tools for safety and security. Door closers are inexpensive enhancers of energy efficiency — and they can even stop fires from spreading and save lives.
The security industry has traditionally been a hands-on one, characterized by physical precautions such as security guards and mechanical keys and locks. The image of a guard patrolling a place with a torch in one hand and a ring with many mechanical keys attached to their belts has long been the picture associated with on-site security.
A smart city is an urban settlement that uses technology to solve problems and optimize city life. This idea can come to fruition in two ways: Some cities, such as Singapore or Dubai, are working on becoming "smart cities" via infrastructural updates and investments.
Construction remains one of the least digitized industries globally. Construction's limited digitization contributes to ill-informed decisions and inefficient industry processes, accelerating financial and environmental costs
Just a year after we published our last year's review of the best BIM software, the market kept growing at a steady rate, with higher demand and new products entering the picture.
Recent technological developments in cloud computing have driven innovation in the security market, convincing companies of all sizes to switch from manual or electronic access control to cloud-based ones.
