Aperio® closes the gaps between mechanical cylinders and online electronic access control systems

Aperio® is a technology from ASSA ABLOY with which cylinders and fittings can be wirelessly integrated into the OPENDO neo electronic access control system without having to change the door construction.

The Aperio® locking cylinders or door fittings communicate by means of an encrypted wireless connected with a hub which is connected directly to the system with a cable.

This enables the level of security to be increased in any building or in parts of buildings by integrating secondary entrances into the existing access control system without the need for extensive cabling. Any number of existing doors can be fitted with Aperio and its associated locking cylinders or fittings at a considerably lower cost than that required to wire individual doors. The access authorisations are updated online in real time.

Aperio® uses the typical RFID technologies for the market. This means there is usually no need to replace the identification media, as existing cards can be used. Doors and locking systems do not require replacement either; they just need to be upgraded with Aperio®-compatible products.
