Great source for physical security technology

I saw a 1 Star review from someone else that this is about selling Assa products... but not a single one of these episodes actually talks about Assa products. They focus on credentials, video + cameras, and access controls. Assa makes locking products primarily.

As a physical security professional, i greatly appreciate this podcast and wish it had continued. I have even sent it to a few clients

Fake News

Complete propaganda to sell ASSA ABLOY products. I'm all for a campus lockdown podcast but not when the sponsor is exploiting it to sell their products.
