Aperio® – Wireless access control technology

Available on the global marketplace, ASSA ABLOY’s Aperio® Technology enables a wide range of access control providers to cost effectively integrate non-wired doors with mechanical locks into new and existing access control systems. Doors will merely need to be equipped with battery-powered Aperio® locks with RFID readers and linked to the access control system via a communications hub for online integration, or via update on card for offline integration.

As a result, security and facility managers now have greater control, can easily respond to organisational changes and will only need to monitor a single security system, while users will only require a single RFID access control card.

CLIQ® – Mechatronic locking system

CLIQ® is a security locking system with high-end microelectronics, programmable keys and cylinders. The system offers a variety of combinations of mechanical and electronic systems to match different security and flexible access needs. Available on the global marketplace, it provides flexible access and key management solutions for all kinds of locking applications.

A wire-free system, each key can be programmed and updated individually to allow access to specific areas at specific times and dates, accommodating constantly changing access requirements and ensuring maximum flexibility. The power is provided by a battery inside the programmable CLIQ® key.

SMARTair™ - Wireless access control system

SMARTair™ is an access control system for small to medium sized businesses that offers an intelligent, yet simple, step up from keys. SMARTair™ is the cost effective alternative to a full high-security system. Wireless doors are more cost effective than standard wired access controlled doors.

Customers are convinced that replacing a lost card is much cheaper than replacing a key. And it can be done quicker. SMARTair™ access control doors can simply be reprogrammed. There is no need to replace locks and cylinders.

Code Handle® - The cost-effective, hassle-free way to protect private rooms from public access

You don't have eyes in the back of your head. It is impossible to keep watch over every private door in a public-facing space: the storeroom in a shop or pharmacy, or the toilet for staff use only. That's when you need Code Handle®.

This simple, secure, easy-to-fit handle with a built-in PIN-pad locks the door for you — with no wiring, no expensive access control system, no cumbersome keys and no major changes to your current door. Code Handle works with an electronic PIN code to make sure only authorised people, like staff, can unlock the door.
