Platform-based access management solution

Issue 2 2021 Editor's Choice

People need different access times and entry points, and your access and security requirements change from day to day. A static solution is therefore no longer an option. Instead, a single, all-encompassing security platform should deliver connectivity, convenience and simplicity, keeping your premises secure and filtering access to manage the ever-changing movement of people.

This is where Incedo Business comes in: a new solution for all types of premises. Incedo handles security while leaving you free to focus on growing your business. Incedo ensures your employees, customers and goods are where they need to be.

Incedo makes tasks easier and more efficient for everyone, from installers to end users. Facility managers enjoy more control and flexibility than they ever thought possible, maximising return on investment with Incedo Business able to scale quickly when needed. System administrators can do more within available budgets, initiating, cancelling or amending access profiles and monitoring movement around their site in real time.

Building users, meanwhile, get the individual access times and entry permissions they need. They can move freely without compromising the security of other people and equipment. Integrators can upgrade connected technologies and systems quickly, minimising risk and meeting customers’ raised expectations of modern technology. Installers no longer need to wrestle with incompatible systems: easy interoperability is built into Incedo, meaning no more delays or unnecessary complexity.

A modular approach

With Incedo’s modular platform approach, you simply choose the security hardware and credentials you need and the appropriate management system option. You set exactly who can access which doors, when, from the user-friendly Incedo Business software interface. With Incedo Business, administrators can pick the most suitable options from a growing range of Incedo-enabled security and access control hardware.

“ASSA ABLOY wireless digital locks, like the Aperio range and wired ASSA ABLOY wall readers, secure all your interior and exterior doors. All the hardware and software you need to run your Incedo system is available from ASSA ABLOY Africa,” says Hayley Elwen, commercial director for digital and access solutions, ASSA ABLOY Africa.

Also already available, a choice of card and token credentials helps users enjoy safe and convenient access to, and movement around, your premises. Incedo mobile keys add the flexibility to open doors with a smartphone.

Incedo’s system management options (Lite and Cloud) scale from entry level up to cloud-based administration. You can manage multiple sites and third-party integrations, including security solutions like CCTV. Scale up and down, add or remove hardware and credentials on demand or switch system management options, all within a single environment. Migration between Lite, Plus and Cloud options is always seamless in any direction, ensuring total flexibility for your business.

Incedo moves with you

However your business moves, an Incedo system moves with you. Having a flexible platform able to adapt as your organisation changes, reduces total cost of ownership, as you never need to retrain staff or start over from scratch.

New Incedo-enabled hardware from ASSA ABLOY and third-party providers will continue to be connected to, and made available within your evolving Incedo platform. You pick the hardware and software configuration you want, and can change your mind as often as you like. Incedo guarantees flexibility and scalability in every way, to meet your security needs today and in the future.

In addition, because the security and operational challenges at a university, small hotel or hospital are not the same as those faced by a public building or corporate HQ, the Incedo ecosystem will introduce new, advanced user interfaces for your specific industry.

“Incedo Business transforms the experience of using and managing a building. It is also the seed from which our Incedo ecosystem will grow in the months and years ahead,” says Stephanie Ordan, vice president, digital and access solutions at ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions EMEA. “A future where doors are smarter, connectivity and movement are seamless and access management is genuinely intelligent is our vision for Incedo and for those who will be using it.”

Incedo Business embodies ASSA ABLOY’s vision to create a safer and more open world, keeping everyone on the move. To learn more and download a free solution guide, visit ASSA ABLOY South Africa at https://www.assaabloyopeningsolutions.co.za/en/access-control/incedo/
