The security industry is developing faster than ever before.
Technological development and digitalization play the leading role and shape the life of tomorrow.
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.
Digitization and finally also COVID-19 have triggered a boom in new forms of work. Both remote-work, as well as flexible working hours, are on the rise. These new ways of working require new ways to record working hours.
Near-field communication (NFC) technologies first appeared in 1983, even though it wasn't until 2006 when Nokia introduced the first NFC-enabled mobile phone. Fast forward to 2021, NFC is a ubiquitous feature for many more mobile phone models and electronic devices.
Preventive care, efforts to prevent a disease before needing to treat it, isn't a new idea and originated in Ancient Greek. However, throughout the 20th century, the increasing focus on understanding the human body to prevent the diseases single-handedly saved millions of lives and cut down healthcare costs.
Emergencies and accidents can strike anyone, anytime, and anywhere, including the workplace. The United States Department of Labor includes both natural and humanmade incidents as a workplace emergency.
Despite different architectural styles, histories, and locations, Westminster Abbey, Cathedrals of Milan and Cologne, the Palace of Alhambra, and Stonehenge have many things in common. They're all iconic landmarks visited by millions of people a year.
Tailgating, the passage of an unauthorized person behind authorized personnel, is one of the most common physical security breaches. Also known as “piggybacking", tailgating often results from a random act of kindness such as holding the door to a stranger.
Despite the growing appetite towards digital and high-tech entrance solutions, mechanical keys and locks remain the most popular market solutions due to their durability and affordability. Especially in residential settings, they're the most ubiquitous entrance methods and continue to record stable growth.
Even though construction remains one of the least digitized industries, the rising adaptation of Building Information Modeling (BIM) shows how easily the right technologies are included in existing processes. From early prototypes in the 1970s to mature models of the 2010s, BIM has experienced a huge development.
