Aperio complements existing electronic access control systems, providing end-users with a simple, intelligent way to upgrade the controllability and security level of their premises.
The heart of Aperio is a short distance wireless communication protocol; designed to link an online electronic access control. Here in New Zealand Aperio has been successfully integrated into pre-existing schools and universities as well as recent new build construction in a number of retirement villages. Because it complements existing electronic access control systems it’s easily scalable and provides buildings with a very high standard of security.
Traditional installation of access control doors is generally expensive and labour intensive due to the extensive wiring required. This is why access control systems often only cover doors with very high security requirements. All other doors have mechanical locks and therefore cannot be monitored and managed. If a master key is lost, there can be a major security risk — not a satisfactory set of circumstances for security officers.
This is where Aperio technology comes in. Doors merely need to be equipped with wireless Aperio battery-powered cylinders, escutcheons or locks with integrated RFID readers and linked to the access control system online via a communications hub.
ASSA ABLOY’s Aperio technology allows security and facility managers to conveniently and cost effectively increase the number of doors that can be monitored. Aperio’s HID genuine certified technology supports a range of credentials including iCLASS, MIFARE, DESFire, SEOS, Legic and 125 kHz Proximity (HID PROX/ EM410).
Because Aperio locks can be managed online, security managers can now block lost cards centrally, without the need for technicians to visit the door. It is easy to de-authorise card users once they leave the institution. An operator simply removes them from the user database, and their smart card no longer opens doors. Everything is managed from one simple, streamlined user interface. Aperio wireless locks are also time-efficient to run and staff are able to reduce the time spent on user management and system administration radically.
