ASSA ABLOY looks at how you know the time is right to expand your access control system and what the best way is to go about it.

If you want to forget about keys and the hassles of key management, wireless locks are the fast and cost-effective way to extend any access control system. But when does it make sense to add wireless locks to your existing access control? 

If you’re looking for more control over your site then wireless locks with built-in RFID readers, such as Aperio® devices from ASSA ABLOY, enable you to control and audit access at more doors. 

Is key management creating more and more workload? You can save time, money and possible security issues with Aperio® wireless locks and you can forget about keys altogether. The system uses no mechanical keys and you can amend or cancel key-cards instantly and remotely.

Wireless locks provide more flexibility, making adding wireless access control at more doors easy with finer-grained access rights for employees, visitors and contractors. Staff are able to access communal areas during working hours, while cleaners and other contractors only have out-of-hours access for the duration of their contracts. Only IT staff access the server room; just office administrators and senior managers open the records store.

Aperio® wireless locks work within every major access control system on the market, from more than 100 different manufacturers. In addition, Aperio® cylinders, handles, escutcheons and complete locks for security doors fit almost any opening: exterior and interior doors, from fire and escape route doors to meeting rooms, labs and offices; wooden, glass or aluminium doors. Aperio® locks are compatible with all common lock profiles: Euro, French, Finnish, Scandinavian and Swiss. Integration with your existing system can be Online or Offline.

Installing Aperio® wireless locks enable you to have more control over your site, offer ultimate flexibility for your security requirements, and take away the stress and hassle of mechanical keys.
