Aperio wireless access control lets users monitor and manage their premises at any time of day or night
With Aperio®, it takes a few seconds to issue or revoke cards from a computer or a smartphone

A mechanical master key system is expensive to run, because of its inflexibility in changing access rights and secure key management costs. Losing a master key means replacing mechanical cylinders and keys right across your facility. There's no shortcut.

How many replacement keys did you order last year? Every lost key costs you time and money—and an instant replacement is impossible. Stolen or copied keys are a constant security risk. No electronic audit trail is possible, and keys cannot be reprogrammed.

So, what's the 21st-century solution?

For anyone running an access control system in parallel with a master key system, it's Aperio®, wireless access control from ASSA ABLOY.

It is easy to extend an existing access control system: simply add Aperio® battery-powered locks with integrated card readers to any door where you want to upgrade security. Every door is linked to the access control system, and can be used with existing cards or a single digital credential—and without a wire in sight.

With Aperio®, it takes a few seconds to issue or revoke cards, from a computer or a smartphone. Users can monitor and manage their premises, at any time of day or night. Reprogramme an RFID card and you have a new key—instantly. That’s the Aperio® effect.

ASSA ABLOY’s CLIQ electronic locking system secures entrances for Creval bank in Italy

Nobody wants to carry or track large numbers of keys. These were the requirements, managers of Creval — a regional bank in Italy — faced when seeking an alternative to a mechanical master-key system. Creval needed new access contr...

Aperio wireless access control system installed at the Centre Psychothérapique de Nancy in France

The expense in terms of staff time and money was significant, and never-ending. And like many other health centres, CPN turned to Aperio wireless technology for a solution. Over 160 Aperio wire...
