While ASSA ABLOY Access Control’s Aperio® solutions adds flexibility to our PolicyServer system, providing a highly cost effective, alternative to our high-end wired solution. The Aperio® solution also integrates with all other aspects of the intelligent building via PolicyServer; this includes PoE audio, CCTV integration, PoE LED lighting and IP based lighting control.”
