ASSA ABLOY’s Aperio® H100 wireless handle wins 2018’s Innovative Achievement Award

  • 7 Dec 2018

The newest device in the Aperio® wireless access control portfolio has been recognised with a Detektor International’s Innovative Achievement award 2018.

The award, in Detektor International’s “ID and Access Control” category, was presented to ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions EMEA during November’s SECTECH Expo in Copenhagen.

The new Aperio® H100 electronic handle packs the power and flexibility of wireless access control into a door handle.

The handle can be easily retrofitted to almost any interior door, making it simple to extend your access control. The handle also offers broad RFID compatibility via an inbuilt credential reader, and simple integration with third-party access systems, to make installation even simpler.

In addition, the handle offers a sleek and discreet style and ensures a minimal footprint as a standard battery fits inside its slim handle.

The Detektor International jury comments: “Smooth and smart — the Aperio® H100 access control door handle is a brilliant example of excellent product design.”

Magnus Bæckström, Business Unit Manager, Digital Handle Locks, at ASSA ABLOY Openings Solutions EMEA, explains: “The recipe for our very successful product is 6 tablespoons of digital handle experience based on our Code Handle® Door device, 4 tablespoons of Aperio® global wireless access control leadership, and topped with a couple of teaspoons of ASSA ABLOY contemporary design.”

“The result is powerful access control functionality in the simple form of a handle. No wiring is needed, and the H100 can work with an online access control system or offline,” Magnus concludes.
