Controlsoft, a developer, manufacturer and distributor of access control products, has integrated its latest Identity Access platform with the Aperio wireless lock from the ASSA ABLOY Door Hardware & Access Control Group. It means that Controlsoft’s customers can add mechanical doors to their access control. ASSA ABLOY says that its Aperio means users require minimal extra hardware to upgrade their premises to wireless access control.
A communications hub providing a wireless connection with up to eight doors, the Aperio AH30 operates within a 25-metre transmission range, and is the makers say suitable for interior doors. The hub is the firm adds particularly practical for hallways with adjacent corridors. Controlsoft’s Identity Access is a management software. The access rights of employees, visitors and contractors can be assigned. Time restrictions can also be applied for each access control point, and the system offers auditing and reporting. The software features a lockdown function, which prohibits authorised users from accessing doors, as well as a further function that can allow for multiple levels of lockdown, depending on the scenario. Identity Access can be integrated with a fire alarm, so that selected doors automatically open when a fire alarm is activated.
Jonathan Summers, Managing Director at Controlsoft, said: “We are committed to providing a comprehensive range of access control solutions that are competitively priced, easy to install and highly secure. It is with this commitment in mind that we have fully integrated our Controlsoft access control solution with the Aperio AH30 1-to-8 communications hub from the Door Hardware & Access Control Group. The AH30 has an excellent reputation as a reliable, functional and high-performance access control solution, and this integration will help us provide customers with faster, more effective installations.”
And David Hodgkiss, Director of Access Control at the Door Hardware & Access Control Group, added: “As one of our original Aperio partners, we are delighted to continue our long-standing relationship with Controlsoft and integrate our award-winning technology with its latest access control platform, Identity Access. Battery-operated Aperio innovations are highly reliable, available in a stylish, contemporary design, and offer a quick and easy installation.”
