Why are universities all over Europe choosing Aperio?

  • 21 Nov 2017

Numerous universities across Europe have discovered the advantages of Aperio, providing a flexible access solution for both staff and students.

Aperio battery-powered devices allow all locks to integrate seamlessly with access control and security systems from over 100 different manufacturers. These wireless locks are simple to install, cost-effective to run and easily upgradable. 

The installation of the system at Lund University in Sweden proved very straightforward, as the Aperio locks work with the university’s existing MIFARE smart cards. This therefore saved time and money as there was no need to replace or re-programme the cards.

Aperio was also utilised at Hamburg’s HafenCity University. The access system has provided greater control for facility managers by allowing them to respond to organisational changes in real time, only requiring the monitoring of one unified security system. In addition, the elimination of physical keys has made life easier – administrators can now simply de-authorise lost credentials, quickly issue or revoke any smart-card’s access rights, and reprogram RFID cards to create new keys.

Furthermore, Aperio wireless locks work as a new installation, or they can extend existing access control capability without the need for a total system overhaul. 

The smart cards can be used for various forms of access – just one card can be used for laundry rooms, photocopy services and library loans. 

Aperio is built using open architecture, meaning that seamless online integration enables a single admin interface to control both hard-wired doors and all additional Aperio battery-powered devices. Consequently, facility managers can survey the whole campus quickly and easily.

The range uses cylinders, escutcheons and security locks to track access and prevent unauthorised access. Managers are able to get detailed audit trails to far more doors and if needs change, Aperio is scalable.
