The article discusses the use of fiber optics as an increasing workable option when improving building security systems. Jeremy Barndt, low voltage designer of JBA Consulting Engineers, said that the transmission mode for fiber optics works because fiber does not conduct electricity but light, and it has become more viable and cost-effective. Moreover, other specifications such as fiber benefits and wireless access control, were discussed. INSET: The "Pull" of Wireless Access.
