Secure almost any access control door wirelessly with ASSA ABLOY Aperio® electronic escutcheon

  • 13 Nov 2020

The Aperio® E100 Wireless Escutcheon from ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions is a robust device suited to almost any medium- to high-traffic door that is easy to install wire-free, making it an ideal choice for both retrofit projects and new buildings.

With Aperio’s open platform, it is straightforward to then integrate your escutcheons with almost any new or existing security system.

You can integrate Aperio E100 escutcheons online or offline — or combine both online and offline doors within the same access control system.

The E100 escutcheon offers a convenient combination of free exit from the inside with automatic locking on closure from outside. You can also lock securely from the inside, if you wish, with the Privacy Function.

It comes in a variety of specifications to fit different door security levels or everyday usage. Supplementing a Standard version, the E100 Premium offers upgraded security that is also certified (DIN/EN) for use at fire and escape doors. 

Lars Angelin, Aperio® Business Development Manager at ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions EMEA, commented: “Available for EURO, DIN, Scandinavian and Finnish door profiles, the Aperio escutcheon provides trusted security at a range of sensitive locations, including many universities, offices, stadiums, public buildings and hospitals across Europe.”

At the Centre Hospitalier Métropole Savoie (CHMS) in France, for example, approximately 1,300 E100 escutcheons integrate natively with a central access system.

The hospital’s wired and wireless doors are managed together with real-time logs and remote opening. CHMS door credentials are tailored for compatibility with the government’s electronic Health Professional Card, so staff only carry one, dual-use RFID-enabled badge. 

At the InHolland University of Applied Sciences, in the Netherlands, Aperio escutcheons seamlessly integrate with a Nedap AEOS system. A single credential enables users to unlock all authorized openings managed by AEOS — whether wired or Aperio-secured doors.

Looking to the future, a new InHolland campus in Amsterdam will require access control to integrate with a smart building system. Aperio is designed for interoperability, so is a natural fit.

Frans Bruggeman, Facility Services Consultant at InHolland said that he was ‘very satisfied’ with the implementation and operation of the Aperio solution.

Fast installation and cost-efficient operation

Because all Aperio locking devices are wireless and battery powered, they are installed quickly and with minimal building disruption. A recent ASSA ABLOY benchmarking study measured installer labour costs at over 80% lower for these wireless locks versus standard wired locks*

Lars Angelin added: “The same study confirms improved energy efficiency with Aperio, too. The ongoing cost of running these battery-operated wireless locks is much lower than for equivalent wired electronic locks, which require an ‘always on’ mains electricity connection to retain secure status. Potential cost savings are significant over every lock’s life-cycle.”

Alongside comprehensive high- and low-frequency RFID compatibility, the Aperio escutcheon allows convenient mobile access powered by Bluetooth Low Energy.

The user’s identity is stored and protected using native, on-device security and strong end-to-end encryption. For door entry, a user presents their smartphone or mobile device to the escutcheon’s inbuilt reader, which communicates securely with the access system to generate a fast decision.

The Aperio E100 wireless escutcheon completes a comprehensive range of Aperio wireless locking devices which includes electronic handles (H100), cylinders (C100), locks (L100) and a wireless lock for server cabinets (KS100).
