Nedap realises that an access control system is a long-term investment and must therefore be future-proof
Standardisation means that customers can use multiple electronic offline locks and handle them in the same way

Nedap Security Management, the developer of the first open security management platform AEOS, is demonstrating the open standard for electronic offline locks at both the Nedap and the Assa Abloy stand at IFSEC 2016. Visitors to stand F1475 in Hall S7, at Excel, London, from 21st-23rd June will have the opportunity to see a live demonstration of the Open Security Standard (OSS) Association.

Open Security Standard (OSS) Association

An access control system is a long-term investment and must therefore be future-proof. Risks change, new security requirements are introduced, but business continuity must never be put at risk. AEOS is designed so that customers are always able to respond. Nedap is also the co-founder of Open Security Standard (OSS) Association.

Standardisation and integration

Daryn Flynn, Business Manager UK at Nedap Security Management said: “By having this standardisation, customers will be able to use multiple electronic offline locks from multiple suppliers and handle them in one and the same way in their security systems. This is user friendly for those who have to manage the authorisations and convenient for the card user.

It also makes the integration of offline locks easier, once the customer has integrated one offline lock system, he has integrated all. With electronic offline locks, you can save investment on the infrastructure like cabling or wireless access points. For doors which are in areas where not many people enter, or the security can be downsized instead of being monitored real time, or cabling and wireless is impossible, the electronic offline lock is a perfect solution. Thanks to OSS this becomes a standard and will enable customers to save costs on integration and allow them to choose the right product. In the end, the customer is free to decide which solution fits best, given the circumstances.

Assa Abloy and Nedap will have a joint OSS demonstration on both the Nedap F1475 stand and the Assa Abloy E1100 stand.
