At IFSEC 2014, Aperio® innovation focuses on the benefits of energy savings for customers

17 Jun 2014

ASSA ABLOY, the largest global supplier of intelligent locking and security solutions, responsible for one in every 10 lock and security installations worldwide, is focusing on innovation on Stand D1700 in Hall S17 at IFSEC 2014 (Excel, London, UK from 17-19 June, 2014.)

Recently named by Forbes as one of the world’s 100 most innovative companies, ASSA ABLOY will showcase new products and solutions for a wide range of end user markets, bringing competitive advantage to OEM and system integrator partners, and improving customers' lives through greater security, safety and convenience.

At IFSEC 2014, over 15 access control providers and OEMs showcase Aperio® wireless lock technology as part of a suite of security products. The Aperio® range, which now includes battery-powered online and offline locks, cylinders, and escutcheons, is ideal for replacing mechanical master keys and integrating unwired doors into a building's access control system.

“We built Aperio® for any organization looking to extend an access control system with intelligent, affordable wireless locks compatible with all the leading RFID technologies,” says Chris Bone, Vice President Access Control Solutions EMEA at ASSA ABLOY. “Adoption is growing rapidly, as both customers and OEMs recognize Aperio® as the best solution for wireless access control. Aperio® is now a truly global technology.”

On the ASSA ABLOY stand, D1700 in Hall S17, visitors can watch Aperio® integration in action. With live systems from Gallagher, G4S, TDSi, and ACS up-and-running in the hall, ASSA ABLOY will demonstrate proof-of-concept for its Aperio® range.

And more than simply affordable to install, Aperio® technology is also affordable to run.

Energy is a hot topic among access control professionals, and here Aperio® really delivers savings. ASSA ABLOY calculations suggest that, in a typical 1,000-unit student accommodation block, customers installing Aperio® battery-powered locks would save at least €12,000 per year in running and maintenance costs alone, in comparison to wired access control doors.

Ask for the full ASSA ABLOY case study: “Energy efficiency—it's in your hands!”

Aperio® expertise is on show elsewhere at IFSEC, too. ASSA ABLOY access control specialists will also be speaking at the IFSEC International Academy Conference, about the future of commercial building security. For programme details, see
