The companies explain the integration offers end-users more options for expanding their physical security system easily and affordably using IP-enabled locks from ASSA ABLOY Group brands Corbin Russwin and SARGENT. The IP-enabled range includes Intelligent WiFi locks that connect to a host system through an existing 802.11b/g/n WiFi network. The range also includes IEEE 802.3af compliant Power over Ethernet (PoE) locks that connect to the Local Area Network (LAN) utilizing a single Ethernet cable for both power and data.

According to the companies, whether it is equipping one door or 100, the cloud-based solution helps hospitals, schools, enterprises, and more connect their security, wirelessly. Administrators can sync doors to video, visitor, and identity management systems through out-of-the-box integrations.
Additionally, the companies note that users can add access groups, create door schedules, and monitor hardware statuses right from a user-friendly, global dashboard.
