Axis Communications and partner ASSA ABLOY to demonstrate how advanced access control, combined with wireless lock technology, allows control of almost all openings in any environment

Axis Communications will be demonstrating the AXIS A1001 Network Door Controller and its integration with ASSA ABLOY’s Aperio® wireless lock technology at IFSEC International 2016
Axis Communications, the market leader in network video, will be demonstrating its AXIS A1001 Network Door Controller, alongside ASSA ABLOY’s Aperio® wireless lock technology, at IFSEC International 2016. The new, seamless integration makes use of Aperio® battery-powered cylinders, escutcheons, locks and server rack solutions and enables IT administrators to manage an entire AXIS management system from a single, easy-to-use interface. The integrated solution allows for management of wired and wireless doors, with real-time monitored access and detailed audit trails.

ASSA ABLOY will be on hand with its partners Axis at stand E1000 to showcase how Aperio® wireless lock technology and AXIS Entry Manager provide businesses the flexibility to add access control features to almost every opening in any location. Aperio® locks with integrated RFID-readers are wireless, meaning there’s no need for expensive or time-consuming cabling during installation. The AXIS A1001 uses Power over Ethernet, also eliminating the need for power cables to the controllers. If requirements change at a facility, such as managers wanting to control access to additional doors, an installer can rapidly and easily fit additional Aperio® locks and integrate the doors with the AXIS Entry Manager control panel.

“The key advantage of Aperio® wireless lock technology is it can bring access control to more doors without breaking the bank and without disruption to major installation works,” states Chris Bone, Vice President Digital and Access Solutions at ASSA ABLOY EMEA. “Because Aperio® is built on open architecture, online integration with the AXIS 1001 Door Controller is seamless. Administrators continue to operate the access management system for wired and Aperio® wireless controlled doors from a single interface, as IFSEC visitors will see demonstrated via a live integration on stand E1000.”

Chris Bone continues, “Aperio® locks are also extremely energy efficient. They run on standard batteries, and only ‘wake up’ when prompted by a smart card or other user credential. They are not connected to the mains and use no power when inactive.”

Stephanie Hensler, Director Business Development at Axis Communications, states, “The joint solution fills a market need for smaller installations that require wireless devices. With the AXIS A1001, this allows for the easy installation and management of wired and wireless doors within the same solution. Alongside the Aperio® wireless access technology, AXIS Entry Manager is a complete, scalable, fully integrated and future-proofed access control system.”

One AXIS 1001 Door Controller can manage one wired door and Aperio® hub, managing up to nine doors per hub, with AES 128-bit encryption ensuring secure communication between lock and system. Aperio® locks are compatible with European, French, Finnish, Scandinavian and Swiss door profiles.
