More than 160 Aperio wireless escutcheons have been fitted throughout the Centre Psychothérapique de Nancy mental health facility (CPN), featuring alongside the access control system from Delta Security Solutions.
This now means everybody has the ability to move freely, with no need to carry a cumbersome key.
Because the Aperio® integration at CPN is online, security staff now have the ability to keep track of door security in real time; not possible with the previous mechanical master-key system.
If a resident loses their credential, facilities staff easily cancel it instantly and reissue another, ensuring site security remains intact.
For the dorm-style rooms at CPN which feature multiple beds, Aperio® escutcheons secure cupboards for every inpatient, so personal belongings are kept safe with no physical keys need, nor PIN codes be remembered.
The old key-operated safes are no longer there, saving CPN the expense of re-keying or replacing safe locks.
Cédric Marchal, technical services engineer at CPN, said: “Previously when a unit key was lost, we would have to change every cylinder it opened — which for some keys would be very expensive.”
At CPN, Aperio® devices also secure areas where residents have no access, including staff rooms, offices and sensitive zones like the pharmacy and medicine store.
Other parts of the Aperio® device range fitted include online and offline Aperio® cylinders; an online security lock; a wireless lock for bringing server racks and cabinets into the same access control system as doors; and the new Aperio® H100 handle, which packs the power and flexibility of Aperio® wireless access control into one slim interior door handle.
Every year since 2011, CPN have budgeted for an expansion in their Aperio® system and more doors at their site are covered, improving the safety and well-being of patients. Enabled by Aperio® wireless access control technology, the upgrading process continues.
