Technology provides inexpensive expansion of
access control systems


March

2012



ASSA ABLOY’s Aperio
TM

Technology now enables a wide range of
access control providers to cost
-
effectively integrate non
-
wired doors with
mechanical locks into access control systems.

As a result, IT, Security and Facility
Managers now have greater
control, can easily respond to organisational changes
and will only need to monitor a single security system,

while users will only
require a single RFID access control card.



An access control system is standard equipment for companies and public
administrations
and provides buildings with a very high standard of security.

However, retrofitting access
control doors is very expensive due to the extensive wiring involved. This is why access
control systems often only integrate doors with very high se
curity requirements.

All other
doors feature mechanical locks.

Such doors cannot be monitored online and the locking
cylinder usually needs to be replaced when a key is lost.

This means that security officers
do not have full control over access and are al
so burdened with laborious administrative
tasks.

This is where Aperio
TM

Technology comes in.

Thanks to its innovative radio
technology, mechanical doors can now be integrated into new or existing access control
systems
using an online, secure wireless solu
tion.



“Fitting a door with
Aperio
TM

Technology

is far more cost
-
effective than an electronic, wired
solution. Structural alterations to the door are not necessary,” explains
Leo Castronovo
Access Control leader ASSA ABLOY Italy.

“The maintenance and ener
gy costs

are also low in
comparison to wired access control doors.”

There is generally no need to replace existing
RFID cards or transponders as these can also be used for Aperio
TM
doors.

Aperio
TM

supports
the standard RFID technologies iCLASS
®
, M
IFARE™ an
d MIFARE™

DESFire




Low
Frequency

and LEGIC
®

Advant are also in the pipeline.


If a user requires access to a room which is secured online with Aperio
TM
, the electronic
cylinder or other type of door fitting transmits their RFID card data via encrypted
wireless
signal to a nearby Aperio™ communications hub, and hubs are able to manage up to 8
doors each so adding to the efficiency of the solution.

In a matter of moments, the hub then
contacts the access control system via an encrypted serial link to veri
fy whether the
medium is authorised for access or not.

There is generally no need to replace the existing
RFID cards or transponders as these can also be used for Aperio
TM
doors.


“ASSA ABLOY has developed Aperio
TM

Technology to meet the growing need for s
ecurity and
control.

Until now, the options for upgrading access control systems were expensive and,
consequently, severely limited.

With Aperio
TM
, we are now able to offer an inexpensive
alternative on the global market in cooperation with manufacturers a
nd system integrators
of access control systems, in fact over 90 leading access control OEM’s already support
Aperio and the number continues to grow” explains Chris Bone, ASSA ABLOY Vice
-
President
Access Control EMEA.



Incorporating non
-
wired Aperio
TM

do
ors into access control systems has provided IT
managers and security officers with a comprehensive range of control options.

Access
authorisations can be issued or deleted online and in real time.

“Any missing access cards




are simply cancelled.

Room acces
s events are also logged in precise detail,” explains
Leo
Castronovo
.

Aperio
TM
monitors doors using the software for the existing access control
system.

This means that facility managers will now only need to manage a single security
system for all their R
FID access controlled doors.


Since Aperio
TM

Technology is based on an open standard, it can be integrated into all access
control systems made by any manufacturer.
