There are simpler systems out there for card access. The simpler systems are not as granular. There a lot of card access pieces to ACM. ACM also requires a server so if you want a cloud based solution, this is not an option. It's best if you have staff or a local company to support the hardware and software.

They need to be powered where there is ethernet. This makes it hard for areas outside in larger fields and such (that are not tied to that). But for a hard-wired business, that wants to do away from home run copper back to the on-prem box, this is a great alternative.

Some systems out there are not too granular. They also lacked integration with Google, which we need. With that being said ACM can sometimes make setup too complicated. Double-tap cards for instance take many steps to set up. In other systems it's a one-click setup. ACM is also compatible with Mercury boards. This is a big reason to choose ACM because the boards are not proprietary.

We looked at Meraki/Cisco cameras, as well as various on-prem servers. Nothing really stacked up when it came to features, cost, and ease of use. Meraki/Cisco came the closest but the licensing was not ideal.
