Abloy UK launches Cumulus Controller for keyless access

  • 11 Jul 2022

Abloy UK unveils its new Cumulus Controller, which enables mobile access for a wide variety of security products, allowing organisations to upgrade their doors to operate without keys.

The Bluetooth-connected Cumulus enables most electric locks and other electronic door locking devices to open with a digital key on a mobile app, instead of a physical credential such as a key, card or fob.

The controller works with both Abloy products and hardware of any brand, using compatible wiring. Security is enhanced because this small device can be installed inside a cabinet or behind a door, which means the locking mechanism is concealed and is therefore difficult to manipulate from the outside, offering enhanced security.

Cumulus is operated with the Abloy mobile app on the user’s mobile phone over a Bluetooth Low Energy connection. The device is compatible with numerous electric lock types, including electromechanical, electric, motor and cabinet locks as well as alarm systems, electric strikes and latches.

The controller is designed for commercial properties and public spaces, including commercial buildings and offices parcel deliveries, cash-in-transit and construction. It can be managed with Abloy OS INCEDO or by integrating with a third-party system.

The solution offers well documented application programming interfaces (APIs) and mobile software development kits (SDKs) for easy integration and partner solutions. The controller tracks usage, recording opening and locking events automatically, and these audit trails can be accessed in the management system.

More access management options

Pat Jefferies, Commercial Director of Abloy UK, explains: “Cumulus is the latest extension to the Abloy portfolio of keyless access solutions for professional use. Used in combination with other locking products available, it brings more access management options to different operating environments.

“Keyless access management not only prevents downtime and reduces operational costs, but also minimises energy-consuming travel, making daily processes work more efficiently.

“By developing and applying new technologies such as this, we can enable a safer, more connected world. We see a future where any door or hatch can be opened, locked and monitored from anywhere, in real time, and our Cumulus controller is a major step towards this.”
