An Aperio® lock needs a battery replacement every two years, nothing more

For a system that's cheap to run and quick to install, you need Aperio® wireless locks

Looking for the best way to give your facility a security boost? For a system that's cheap to run and quick to install, you need ASSA ABLOY Aperio® wireless locks.

Standard wired security doors stay locked thanks to a magnetic lock paired with a reader. Their magnets are powered by electricity, via an always-on mains connection.

Aperio® wireless locks are different. They run on standard lithium-ion batteries, and only “wake up” when prompted by a smart card or other user credential. They are not connected to the mains, and use no power when inactive.

Aperio® maintenance could hardly be simpler. An Aperio® lock needs a battery replacement every two years, nothing more.

And those wired locks are hungrier than you might imagine. A typical Aperio® lock consumes 0.001 kWh of energy per year. Together, a standard wired lock and its reader consume an average of 55.2 kWh, every year.

So, Aperio® saves you money on energy costs, and saves you some more on maintenance. In fact, installing Aperio® in a typical 1,000-door student accommodation block would save between €14,000 and €16,000 in running costs, every year, over wired access control.

Spend less money, leave a lighter carbon footprint, and secure your organisation against rising energy costs in an uncertain world. That's the Aperio® effect.
