ASSA ABLOY’S Aperio H100

Security systems provider Vanderbilt has integrated the Aperio wireless locking technology from ASSA ABLOY Access Control with its new ACT Enterprise platform. This will enable customers to easily add mechanical locks to their access control system. Aperio ensures end users require minimal additional hardware to upgrade their premises to wireless access control.

With the latest version of ACT Enterprise available now, the system includes a rules mapping engine and a smart phone app that enables end users to stay in control of their facilities’ access control requirements from the palm of their hand.

One of the newest ASSA ABLOY products with which the ACT Enterprise platform is compatible is the Aperio H100. Launched only last year, the Aperio H100 is a slim door handle that can be retrofitted to almost any interior door. Requiring no drilling or wiring to install, the Aperio H100 has been designed to complement most modern commercial office environments and works with common European and Scandinavian mortise locks in wooden, steel, tubular frame or glass doors with standard lock cases.

Andrew Fulton, head of the access control product line at Vanderbilt, said: “The security systems market is moving towards more intelligent and intuitive solutions requiring only one-time data entry for users, permissions, configuration and system behaviour. To meet this demand, we made the decision to integrate our ACT Enterprise access control solution with ASSA ABLOY Access Control’s Aperio products. These have an excellent reputation in the market for being a reliable, trusted and high-performance access control range. We believe that ACT Enterprise’s integration with Aperio will provide our customers with faster, more cost-effective access control installations, while also enhancing our functionality and reach in the market.”

David Smyth, regional sales manager at ASSA ABLOY Access Control, added: “We’re thrilled to integrate our Aperio technology with Vanderbilt’s newest access control platform. Helping commercial businesses to quickly and conveniently implement an intelligent access control system across their site, our battery-operated Aperio innovations are fast to install and dependable.”
