We have a door access system and it is a wired system and since few years we are having a very difficult time with the product, controllers failing and also the software is not very good and when we make changes to software and run the sync, the changes don’t replicate to the controllers and the doors don’t open.
We are thinking of either going with wired door access or wireless door access for all the 300 doors
The support engineer who looks after the current access system was saying the cables get heated up and not sure why the cables get heated up. 
Any reason why the cables get heated and will this cause system to malfunction.
With the wireless system, I have to replace batteries on the door handles and the batteries get consumed according to the doors used.
Your thoughts and suggestions much appreciated.
