Security Essen also sees the launch of the next generation of Aperio® electronics

Security Essen 2014 attendees can see live Aperio® integrations running on the floor at multiple ASSA ABLOY partner OEM stands

Innovation in wireless access control is on display at Security Essen 2014, thanks to ASSA ABLOY. The global leader in door opening solutions showcases Aperio®, SMARTair™ and eCLIQ™ in Hall 11, Stand 304.

According to a recent survey by ASSA ABLOY and ifsecglobal.com, almost 80% of security managers say reducing energy consumption is important for their business. Here ASSA ABLOY´s Aperio® wireless access control delivers big savings, because Aperio® locks are powered by standard batteries, rather than an always-on mains connection.

“At a time when electricity prices are rising and sustainability is high on the global agenda, energy efficiency should be a key consideration when upgrading to any electronic access control solution. Aperio® both minimises installation and maintenance costs and shrinks life-cycle costs and energy consumption,” says Chris Bone, Vice President Access Control Solutions at ASSA ABLOY EMEA.

The Aperio® range now features battery-powered locks, cylinders, and escutcheons for online or offline integration. It includes the new Aperio® L100 lock with PINpad, which offers optimum protection for security doors, transmits door status information to the access control system, and provides multi-level authentication via a card reader and PINpad.

Security Essen also sees the launch of the next generation of Aperio® electronics. The new release delivers multiple innovative features—including faster communication speeds from hubs and locks to the access control system in real-time—without cutting the 2-year lifetime of lock batteries.

Also according to the recent ASSA ABLOY survey, ease of integration with existing access control systems is among the most common motives for businesses switching to wireless. Security Essen 2014 attendees can see live Aperio® integrations running on the floor at multiple ASSA ABLOY partner OEM stands, including Siemens, Nedap, Axis, Datasec, and Keyflex among others.

ASSA ABLOY are also showcasing the latest innovations by SMARTair™ from KESO, an affordable, out-the-box wireless access control system designed for small premises. SMARTair™ enabled organisations can secure and manage up to 30 doors in a wireless access control system via update-on-card.

Locksmiths looking to switch from traditional mechanical key systems to wireless access control can join the SMARTair™ Genesis program. On joining, each locksmith receives a SMARTair™ access control system complete with a training package to help them sell, install, and maintain the latest in wireless access control from KESO.

The new IKON eCLIQ™ system with battery-powered keys and electronic wireless cylinders is also on display. IKON eCLIQ™ cylinders can be fitted to doors without making any extra alterations, and are maintenance-free for up to 200,000 operating cycles.

Thanks to a newly developed, pioneering chip generation with 128bit AES encryption, eCLIQ™ offers a very high security standard, accelerated communication speeds, and improved energy management, which reduces overheads considerably. Power is supplied from an easy-to-replace standard battery in the key, which is waterproof as per IP67.

CLIQ combines mechanical and electronic locking systems for enhanced physical security

Lock and key security has come a long way since Ancient Egypt. Over the centuries, Romans, the lever tumbler and Linus Yale’s pin tumbler all took the technology forward. Each was a significant milestone. But in truth, your average pharaoh would still recognise his clever gadget. The latest advances in key-based electronic access control, on the other hand, would send Rameses into a tailspin. A mechatronic locking system like CLIQ combines high-end mechanical and electronic protection. A...

CLIQ® electromechanical locking system improves staff access at QE Hospital, Birmingham

Complicated key management systems can detrimentally affect nursing care. Staff using older, mechanical key systems find it difficult to keep track of who has the keys. Searching for that person to gain access to controlled drugs can waste much of a nurse’s valuable time. Pharmacy managers at Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham (QE Birmingham), identified a better solution for secure, quick and convenient staff access to controlled medicines: the PROTEC2 CLIQ® electromechanical lockin...
