Technology now enables the cost
effective integration of doors with mechanical
locks into both new and existing access control systems.
Thanks to its innovative
wireless technology, integrating doors into an access contro

Doors will merely
need to be equipped with electronic Aperio
locking cylinders or escutcheons with
RFID readers and linked to the access control system via a commun

If a user requires access to a room which is secured online with Aperio
, the electronic
cylinder or other type of door fitting transmits their RFID card data via encrypted wireless
gnal 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 verify whether
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
the standard RFID technologies iCLASS
and MIFARE™ DESFire™
Advant are also in the pipeline.
With its wireless Aperio
Technology, ASSA ABLOY provides further proof of its leading
market position in the field of high
