NEW HAVEN, Conn. — ASSA ABLOY has collaborated with RedCloud, a provider of Web-based access control solutions, to enhance the Aperio wireless locks.
Aperio uses wireless communication between the lock and an Aperio hub to link to an electronic access control system. The platform now integrates with RedCloud’s line of Web-based access control network appliances, including RedCloud Express, RedCloud Enterprise and RedCloud Virtual.
Designed for small- to medium-sized installations, RedCloud Express controls up to 32 doors. RedCloud Enterprise is a rack-mounted, access control network appliance that enables enterprises of all sizes to secure their facilities, people and assets across multiple offices, buildings or locations from any Web browser. RedCloud Virtual is VMware ready for deployment in a virtual server environment, eliminating the need to maintain a separate, stand-alone server or dedicated network appliance, according to the company. Both RedCloud Enterprise and RedCloud Virtual can manage more than 2,000 doors.
“RedCloud’s products provide customers with innovative access control over a wide range of end-user markets and any number of doors,” says Martin Huddart, vice president of Electronic Technologies, ASSA ABLOY Americas. “This integration offers customers a flexible, affordable access control solution for enhanced security levels. It’s the perfect complement to our family of Aperio wireless locks that can address almost any application within a facility.”
