Aperio Wireless Technology Integrated With Cansec MAP1-Based Access Control Systems

The MAP1 is a modular access panel that serves as a building block for Cloud Lock, First Access or Webster access control solutions.

NEW HAVEN, Conn. — ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions has completed the integration of its Aperio wireless lock technology with MAP1-based access control systems from Cansec Systems of Mississauga, Ontario, Canada.

“From the outset, our plan was to integrate Aperio locks with the MAP1 so they would be fully supported on all current and future Cansec solutions,” says Fred Dawber, president, Cansec Systems. “ASSA ABLOY’s partnership and outstanding technical expertise contributed to the success of the project and our ability to deliver this much-desired integration to our customers.”

The Aperio integration offers Cansec customers an easy way to connect additional openings to their new and existing MAP1 installations, according to an announcement. Aperio is a global wireless platform that works with extensive locking hardware options from ASSA ABLOY Group brands to address a range of applications.

The platform uses wireless communication (IEEE 802.15.4) between the lock and an Aperio hub to provide real-time communication to the access control system, simplifying installation and reducing costs, according to the company.

The MAP1 is a modular access panel that serves as a building block for Cloud Lock, First Access or Webster access control solutions.

Designed to support the changing needs of customers, the panel allows for migration from the Webster embedded web server solution — which supports 5,000 users and four readers — to Cloud Lock access control as a service or First Access client-server software, which can support up to 100,000 users and 1,024 readers.

“Cansec consistently demonstrates a firm commitment to providing innovative solutions that are simple to install, use and support, as well as affordable. This complements ASSA ABLOY’s approach with our Aperio technology,” states Peter Boriskin, CTO, ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions Americas. “The result of this integration is a flexible and scalable solution that opens new opportunities for customers of all sizes to expand their access control network.”
