ASSA ABLOY recently announced the introduction of its IN120 Wi-Fi lock, combining secure wireless electronic access control with a sleek, attractive design. Available from Group brands Corbin Russwin and SARGENT, the IN120 provides a cost-effective solution for any facility wishing to upgrade to access control.
Ideal for use in hard-to-wire locations, the IN120 utilises standard IEEE 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi connectivity to connect to the access control system, significantly reducing installation costs, and eliminating the need for proprietary equipment. The IN120’s integrated ANSI/BHMA Grade 1 hardware is available in cylindrical and mortise lock configurations.
The IN120 utilises HID® multiCLASS SE™ technology, which provides heightened security, supports multiple credential types including HID Prox®, HID iCLASS®, HID iCLASS SE® (SIO-enabled), HID iCLASS® Seos™, HID MIFARE® SE, HID iCLASS DESfire® EV1 SE, MIFARE Classic, DESfire EV1, and FeliCa, and enables NFC mobile access. The IN120 supports current Wi-Fi security standards including WEP, WPA, WPA2 and 802.1x and utilises AES 128-bit encryption. In addition, the WiFi radio is field-upgradeable, making it future proof for evolving Wi-Fi standards.
“Our new IN120 is ideal for budget-conscious applications. Combining low cost and the ability to interface with a facility’s existing IT infrastructure, the IN120 offers the most economical path to upgrade to electronic access control by leveraging an existing network,” said Peter Boriskin, Director of Product Management – Electronic Access Control, ASSA ABLOY Americas.
The ASSA ABLOY IN120 offers a customisable feature set, allowing customers to select only the features they need or add features as their requirements grow. The IN120 has built-in “intelligence” for local decision making, enabling the lock to operate regardless of network status. The IN120 also offers local lockdown and privacy mode capabilities on both cylindrical and mortise lock configurations. Adding to its versatility, the IN120 works with a broad range of industry-leading access control systems.
The IN120 is compact and has a slim profile that allows it to blend seamlessly onto the door. It is offered in a choice of finishes and decorative levers to match any design requirements.
