An emerging trend with respect to the EACS market is the demand for integrated solutions that integrate immediate onsite response with electronic security and alarm systems. This growth is mainly attributed to heightened security concerns backed by government and regulatory mandates. The major players in the market include Bosch Security Systems (Germany), Siemens Building Technologies (Switzerland), Honeywell international Inc. (U.S.), Schneider Electric (France), Assa Abloy AB (Sweden), Tyco International (Switzerland), Magal Security Systems Ltd. (Israel), and Future Fibre Technology (Australia) among others.

Authentication systems are considered as extensions of intruder alarms & perimeter security systems as they both monitor as well as prevent malicious activities. The main difference here is that authentication systems are used in combination with intruder alarms whereas an intruder alarm can be used as a standalone security measure. This helps authentication systems to actively prevent/block intrusions that are detected.
