Dutch university sees ASSA ABLOY Aperio® deliver integrated, wireless access control

  • 13 Oct 2020

Over 500 Aperio® wireless door locking devices have now been deployed at seven separate InHolland University of Applied Sciences campus sites.

These battery-powered locks provide tested and trusted protection for the university’s most important areas and rooms, including offices and exam storage spaces.

Aperio devices fit all kinds of interior openings, including wooden and glass doors, as well as fire doors. Aperio cylinders, escutcheons, handles and security locks have in-built RFID readers for installer and user convenience.

All InHolland’s new Aperio devices are fully and seamlessly integrated with the university’s Nedap AEOS access control system.

A single credential allows users to unlock all authorized openings managed by the AEOS system — whether wired or Aperio-protected doors. 

As Aperio locking devices are wireless, they were installed and initiated quickly — without disruption to InHolland buildings or their students’ working day.

What’s more, choosing Aperio saved more than just time, with a recent ASSA ABLOY benchmarking study finding installer labour costs are over 80% lower for wireless versus wired locks*.

The ongoing cost of running battery-operated wireless locks is also much lower than for equivalent wired electronic locks, which require an ‘always on’ connection to mains electricity to maintain secure status.

In addition, choosing Aperio gives InHolland the ability to roll out enhancements over time, as needs, budgets and priorities evolved.

Aperio devices can be added and integrated gradually, with no need to replace existing systems. InHolland’s investment remains totally future-proofed.

Fitting Aperio wireless escutcheons and locks to critical doors ensures university staff, students, visitors and confidential information are safe without impacting site accessibility.

Authorised users open relevant secure doors conveniently with a programmable RFID credential. Aperio’s inherent flexibility makes it easy to adjust any space’s level of protection at any time; so, locking status is regularly reconfigured as needs and usage evolves around the multi-site campus and university facilities.

Based on their experience to date with Aperio, InHolland are already planning for the future. A new university in Amsterdam will become a smart building and will require access control able to integrate with smart building systems.

Aperio is built on an open platform, designed for interoperability, so this is a natural fit. InHolland will enter pilot stage for their new smart building soon. 

Frans Bruggeman, Facility Services Consultant at InHolland, commented: “I am very satisfied with the implementation and operation of the Aperio solution and I have every confidence in ASSA ABLOY as a manufacturer.”
