Written by the President of a leading manufacturer of access control systems. However, it is not biased towards his own company at all. It is an excellent introduction to Electronic Access Control and the only worthwhile book on the subject. If your business needs, or might need, an electronic access control system, this book will tell you everything you need to know to buy and manage one. Highly recommended.

Hardly a literary masterpiece, but I found it useful and educational. Information security specialists will be comfortable with the ideas and the approaches.There is room for a more comprehensive book on this subject, but this is a good start.

Having read many other books on general security I needed information on access control systems and networking with our MIS department. This book gave all of us on the commitee the ability to better understand and design our overall system so we could get the best price performance from our vendors.
