Nedap & ASSA ABLOY announce collaboration
Nedap Security Management and ASSA ABLOY collaborate to bridge the gap between mechanical locks and access control systems
Nedap Security Management
has been involved as first company to integrate Aperio Technology. The security management system AEOS constitutes a good platform to support Aperio products due to the open architecture and because it is based on the latest IT technology.

Aperio is a new technology developed to upgrade mechanical doors and wirelessly connect them to an existing electronic access control system, providing end-users with a simple, intelligent way to raise the security level of their premises at a lower cost than a traditional system.

Eric Beaudru of ASSA ABLOY says: "ASSA ABLOY's ambition is to offer flexible access control door locking and opening solutions. Aperio wireless technology has been designed with and for access control companies for effective and simple operation by security and IT managers. Thanks to great team work, Aperio escutcheons and cylinders are now cost effective extensions of Nedap AEOS, thus allowing for a greater number of doors to be controlled. It is a major breakthrough as the ASSA ABLOY expertise of the door environment is now available together with the most advanced access control technology to provide security, safety and convenience to all users."

Joffry Maltha of Nedap says: "So far, organisations were unable to benefit fully from everything electronic access control has to offer. Secure, low-cost and easy-to-manage RFID cards could only be used at doors wired to the electronic access control system. Access to all other doors was still dependent on traditional patented keys, which are hard to keep track of, particularly in larger organizations. With the Aperio integration in AEOS 2.3, Nedap presents a truly ‘all-round' access control system."
