ASSA ABLOY’s Aperio® recently provided the solution to a complex security challenge at the Haute Savoie region’s new hospital, allowing multiple checkpoints and access rights tailored to individual staff and contractors and real-time control.
The Aperio® locks are wireless, allowing the hospital to introduce many more layers of security and secure doors without incurring excessive installation or operating costs, including for sensitive offices and drug stores.
Thanks to Aperio®, staff no longer carry key bunches or waste valuable time hunting down relevant keys. All their individual permissions are stored on a single, programmable RFID credential.
Alongside standard wired locking, the hospital chose 1,300 Aperio ® wireless escutcheons, 10 Aperio ® wireless handles with integrated RFID reader, and 301 Aperio ® wall readers. A network of 228 Aperio ® communications hubs connects every Aperio ® lock wirelessly to the central access system software.
All these battery-powered Aperio ® devices integrate natively with the centralised access system, so wired and wireless access points at Centre Hospitalier Métropole Savoie (CHMS) are managed together, with real-time management logs, remote door opening and free time slot management. Secure 128-bit AES encryption protects communications between Aperio ® lock, hub and system.
“Having just a single badge — and not having to carry around heavy keys — has been a major advantage for us,” says Béatrice Dequidt, Health Executive at CHMS. Easy administration from a single interface “This solution’s advantage is it represents a single site from an authorisation management and systems perspective,” explains Aurélien De Riols, ARD’s Eastern Region Director. One single, intuitive management interface enables security teams to administer and maintain access control autonomously, as well as streamline laborious everyday tasks.
“We have implemented internal HR management procedures, creating badges that are automatically integrated into ARD’s operating software,” adds Alain Gestin, CHMS’s IT Systems Architect. Aperio and ARD maintain compatibility of credentials with the French government’s electronic Health Professional Card (CPS), for added staff convenience.
For every site user, the advantages of carrying a single RFID-enabled badge — instead of multiple keys — are clear.
