I need to select a security vendor for the new office.  We have one location east coast that using security vendor A and West coast office that using a vendor B.  The new office also in West Coast and trying to select a vendor X that would be compatible to both..
Security is for palm/finder print access, cameras, centralized management and image capture,etc.
What things should I look into when making a selection?  Besides price of course.

2nd question - anyone has any form or such for evaluating vendors?

Thanks.

Physical security... ok, the "palm/finDer access" threw me off (finder=finger) :) Why not have your venders tell you their authorized technicians or  resellers are in that area? Most biometric and video security vendors have or can do that leg work for you, that's what we make them do at least. More often than not the local facilities (building management) already has a vendor they use for such things, you can see if that vendor can use equipment you provide. Most security equipment comes with instructions and you can contract local technicians to install it.
