ASSA ABLOY and Genetec Create Access Control Synergy with Synergis

20 Mar 2014

London, March 2014 – Genetec Synergis intelligent access control system has added integration of the ASSA ABLOY Aperio® wireless technology product range.

Genetec Synergis incorporates several Aperio® components including electronic cylinders and escutcheons, wireless locks for security doors and the 1-to-8 Hub for controlling access to multiple doors, without the need for expensive cabling.

“The goal with Aperio® is always to enhance secure access at an affordable price,” says Chris Bone, Vice President Access Control EMEA at ASSA ABLOY. “This new partnership with Genetec sees our innovative wireless battery powered door locking technologies integrated into a market-leading access control system in Europe and in the US.”

Aperio® Synergis integration supports office mode, as well as multiple RFID technologies including iCLASS, MIFARE, MIFARE DESFire and HID Prox/EM410. Currently online only, the integration uses the RS485 protocol, with 16 Aperio® devices per RS485 output from the Synergis Master Controller (SMC).

“Aperio® integration brings the latest wireless locks to our market-leading access control system. We are launching the integration in both the US and EMEA regions, and considering offline and IP integration as future developments,” said François Brouillet, access control product manager, at Genetec.

About Aperio®: Available on the global market place, ASSA ABLOY’s Aperio® Technology enables a wide range of access control providers to cost-effectively integrate non-wired doors with battery powered electromechanical locks into access control systems.
