ASSA ABLOY at IFSEC to show how open platforms win business

Supporting technological development that is deliverable and accessible.

Assa Abloy advocates open communication platforms, including the Standard Offline Access Application (SOAA) for offline wireless locks.   

Across Europe approximately 70% of the OEM market has integrated one or more of ASSA ABLOY’s product lines.

On a global level, over 100 leading access control OEMs have integrated an ASSA ABLOY solution.

In part, this is because of ASSA ABLOY’s flexible approach to communication platforms.

Chris Bone, Vice President of Access Control Solutions, ASSA ABLOY EMEA: “The myth that electromechanical locking and access control solutions are complicated and expensive often arises because end users and OEMs are unaware of the flexibility provided by open communications systems. As the Internet of things continues to gather pace, we see security as an integral part of this trend. One of the biggest threats to the security industry is not the failure to recognise this, but the inability to provide products that allow everyone access to the best new technology.”

’Plug & Play’ approach

Unlike proprietary software, open platforms allow customers with existing access control or security systems to extend and upgrade without the need for a complete replacement.

This “plug and play” approach is more cost effective, and also easier to install and manage.

Open standards allow new products to integrate seamlessly into existing systems, including CCTV and key management systems.

Standards allow access and security throughout a building to adapt with the building’s growth and changing user needs.


Alongside the Integration Zone, products from ASSA ABLOY, Abloy, Mul-T-Lock, Traka and Yale will be on display during IFSEC 2015.
