ASSA ABLOY Announces 3 New Integrations at GSX
Access control platforms from AvericsUnity, Sielox and PremiSys now integrate with ASSA ABLOY’s Aperio wireless lock technology.
CHICAGO — ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions, a global leader in access solutions, announced three new integration partners at Global Security Exchange (GSX) 2019. Learn about each one below.
ASSA ABLOY Integration With AvericsUnity Access Control Platform
ASSA ABLOY has integated its IP-enabled Power over Ethernet (PoE) and WiFi locks, as well as Aperio wireless lock technology with AvericsUnity from Averics Systems. Averics develops browser based, non-proprietary access control solutions that can be used in local server or Cloud-based deployments.
AvericsUnity seamlessly integrates and unifies multi-vendor security products into a browser interface. Built on current open technology, including support for mobile apps and touch screens, it provides for control of Aperio locks from anywhere, any time, according to the company.
AvericsUnity provides real time status of Aperio Locks and the ability to execute commands from any supported device.
The two integrations offer Averics customers an easy way to connect additional openings to their AvericsUnity installations. Aperio is a global wireless platform that works with extensive locking hardware options from ASSA ABLOY Group brands, offering the flexibility to address a variety of applications throughout any facility, according to the company.
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, which is said to simplify installation and reducing costs.
IP-enabled PoE and WiFi locks allow facilities to use existing or planned network infrastructure to expand their system.
“Averics Systems is well known for providing sophisticated, yet intuitive security solutions. The ability to add the broad range of IP-enabled and Aperio locks to this system results in an even more powerful solution for facilities,” says Peter Boriskin, chief technology officer, ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions Americas.
ASSA ABLOY Integrates Aperio Wireless Technology With Sielox Pinnacle Access Control Platform
ASSA ABLOY has also integrated its Aperio wireless lock technology with the Pinnacle Advanced access control software and 1700 Intelligent Controller from Sielox, a designer of layered security solutions.
Aperio will integrate with version 10.4 of Pinnacle access control platform. Pinnacle provides access control management and control capabilities to best address the most demanding needs today with scalability for tomorrow, according to the company.
The integration includes Sielox’s 1700 Intelligent Controller, an intelligent, fully distributed 32-bit access control panel for up to 34 doors that provides facility protection even if communications have been interrupted. The unit connects directly to a network.
Additionally, Aperio wireless locks can be controlled by CLASS (Crisis Lockdown Alert Status System), Sielox’s emergency notification and response solution that is said to improve situational awareness, saving time and potentially saving lives.
A browser-based application, CLASS is accessible anywhere and anytime and can instantly send alert level status changes and lockdown facilities from any device.
Karen Evans, president and CEO of Sielox, says, “By integrating the Aperio lock with our Pinnacle and CLASS software and controller, we are giving customers the ability to implement wireless access in conjunction with existing hardwired access to provide a layered security solution.”
ASSA ABLOY Integrates Aperio Wireless Technology With PremiSys Access Control System
ASSA ABLOY’s Aperio wireless lock technology now also integrates with the PremiSys access control system from PDC IDenticard, a leading manufacturer of physical access control solutions.
The Aperio integration offers PDC IDenticard customers an easy way to connect additional openings to their PremiSys installations.
PremiSys is a robust and scalable solution that combines access control with credential management, customized audit reports, mobile apps, security integrations and more. It provides full system management for an unlimited number of door openings.
“The integration with PremiSys will allow organizations to seamlessly manage openings throughout their entire facility – from perimeter doors to supply drawers – using a single access control platform and security credential,” says Boriskin.
