For access control providers, Aperio® wireless locks offer several ways to integrate

12 Aug 2014

London, August 2014 – With Aperio® battery-powered locks, a full range of integration options comes as standard. Access control manufactures choosing to integrate with Aperio® can pick between multiple online and offline possibilities.

Recent data published by IMS Research suggests that sales of electronic locks will increase by more than 10% between 2010 and 2016. “This represents a major change in the scope of the access control industry. With its Aperio® wireless range, ASSA ABLOY offers integrators an easy way to enhance their product portfolio with the latest electronic locks,” explains Chris Bone, Vice President Access Control Solutions EMEA at ASSA ABLOY. Online Aperio® integration provides a link from the system via a communications hub to the wireless access controlled doors. It is supported by three different hub varieties. The Aperio® RS485 hub connects up to 8 doors per hub. The IP hub connects up to 8 doors via a high-speed, encrypted TCP/IP connection. A Wiegand interface hub provides a single door connection to the access control system. Chris Bone says: “Aperio® online integration allows our integrators to select the right hub for their system and user requirements. And, ultimately, Aperio® gives their customers the maximum possible variety of choices to upgrade their doors wirelessly in the most efficient and flexible way.” Offline Aperio® integration supports both the Aperio® “data on card” model and the Standard Offline Access Application (SOAA), an open standard developed by ASSA ABLOY and other industry leaders. “Our wide range of integration options for Aperio® ensures that customers have a choice in selecting the best solution for their wireless access control needs. This range of choices includes both online and offline technologies, which of course can also be mixed on a single system for maximum flexibility,” adds Chris Bone. With the future growth forecasted for this market, ASSA ABLOY has appointed Gareth Ellams as Aperio® Business Development and Key account Director, EMEA. His industry expertise makes him the perfect fit for managing ASSA ABLOY's vital OEM relations.
