A new, upgraded version of Syntegro's SynGuard system incorporates Aperio®, CLIQ®, and Hi-O™, leading access control technologies from ASSA ABLOY. SynGuard is now able to manage doors with different types of ASSA ABLOY locking system within a single, 100% web-based software platform.
SynGuard's Aperio® integration incorporates the latest online and offline wireless escutcheons, cylinders, and locks from the Aperio® range. Online access is enabled by ASSA ABLOY's 1-to-8 Aperio® hub (RS485 or IP), an IP-hub managed by a SynApp IP-Controller which can manage up to 32 Aperio® devices or a combination of 16 Aperio® devices and 64 doors.
Where battery-powered locks are not practical, ASSA ABLOY's eCLIQ keys and locking cylinders offer another wireless solution. Lock power is provided by a battery in every eCLIQ key, not inside the lock itself: eCLIQ keys incorporate high-security 128 AES encryption, and contain no mechanical coding. Security managers control the update of access rights via a wall-mounted or mobile device connected to the SynGuard system software.
Wired access control is provided by ASSA ABLOY's Hi-O™ product range, a long-term, intelligent door locking solution designed for customers with high security requirements. Hi-O™ integration enables connected doors to share encrypted information via ISO-standard CAN data communication with the SynGuard software. Components available from launch include solenoid and motor locks, exit buttons, door pumps, and badge readers.
“Thanks to ASSA ABLOY's integration with Syntegro, SynGuard customers will be able to manage multiple ASSA ABLOY access control technologies within one application,” says Piet van den Bossche, Aperio® Business Unit Manager at ASSA ABLOY Belgium. “In particular, our Aperio® wireless access products can extend the reach of access control much farther into a facility, and at an affordable price.”
“Close cooperation with ASSA ABLOY, and integration of their access control products in SynGuard software, offers genuinely customised solutions,” says Werner Schraepen, Business Development at Syntegro. “All these lock systems can be managed from the same SynGuard software platform, created with open development tools.”
