Any lock or reader intended for use in a Government facility that is required to meet the FIPS 201-2 standard must be part of an integrated Physical Access Control Software (PACS) providers’ compliant solution. Access control features and capabilities vary by PACS providers' integration capabilities and should always be designed & installed by a company with a Certified Systems Engineer ICAM PACS.
