Wireless locking evolution

September 2013 Products & Solutions

Aperio is a technology developed by ASSA ABLOY to complement the use of traditional electronic access control systems, by providing end- users with a simple, intelligent way to enhance the controllability and security of their premises. This is achieved without the disruption and costs associated with dedicated direct cabling and provision of power to every door.

An Aperio Wireless Lockset or Cylinder is designed to serve as a combined card-reader and locking device, as well as providing a real-time link to the Aperio Gateway System (AGS) on-line processor unit. It is the AGS gateway controllers distributed around the site, that make all of the access decisions as each card is read.

Using the advanced features of the AGS V9.x software and the hybrid Aperio Gateway Controller you can unleash the combined benefits offered by a fully featured traditional hard wired card reader and lock control solution, as well as the flexibility and agility of secure wireless battery-powered Aperio locksets and e-cylinders.

The AGS also offers end-users the option to control their doors using a data-on-card off-line-integrated option – OLi – where the wireless concept is taken one stage further and the system becomes completely wire-free. Because the Aperio OLi escutcheon locksets and e-cylinders are wireless enabled, there is a simple migration path from off-line data-on-card, to wireless-on-line, should the need arise.

The AGS is a cost-effective, efficient and feature enriched solution which leverages the combined benefits of traditional architecture with battery powered wireless on-line and wire-free off-line solutions. All three concepts can be blended seamlessly and managed from a single software admin package which in turn can integrate with client business infrastructure (HR, AD, cashless, T&A etc.) and other security subsystems (such as intruder alarms and CCTV).
