The other day some people at Nedap headquarters were going through some old documents and found the advertisement below from 1978. It was published by Nedap as a commercial for its access control system. It made people realise how long they have been developing and manufacturing access control. Also, I had the feeling it made people proud. 


What are four benefits of automation in security?

There are three elements that need to be taken care of to ensure we have effective security - People, Processes and Technology. Each element serves a  unique and distinct purpose, but when combined, they are far more powerful. In short, technology ensures that processes and procedures are enforced and that the people are doing what they should be doing.
