Aperio is a global wireless platform that works with extensive locking hardware options from ASSA ABLOY Group brands, offering the flexibility to address a variety of applications throughout any facility. The platform uses wireless communication (IEEE 802.15.4) between the lock and an Aperio hub to provide real-time communication to the access control system, simplifying installation and reducing costs.

Allegion US, a provider of security products and solutions, announces IDenticard’s PremiSys software now integrates with its revolutionary K-12 security solutions, the Von Duprin Remote Undogging (RU) and Remote Monitoring (RM) options. These wireless solutions expand the reach of electronic access control to secondary openings. “Controlling access is a critical part of a school’s efforts to provide a safe learning environment, and it begins with a secure perimeter,” said Yong Lacy, Allegion US category leader, openings. More secure perimeter “We’ve found that many schools focus a majority of funds on the front entrance, which, unfortunately, leaves secondary entrances vulnerable. In response, Allegion created the Von Duprin RU and RM options to help schools build a more secure perimeter within budget. Our Software Alliance members like IDenticard help make this possible.” When integrated with IDenticard’s PremiSys, end users can remotely lock and monitor every connected opening—from classrooms to common areas to perimeter doors—through a single database. Lockdown of an entire facility can occur with the push of a button. RU is a modular battery powered kit that can be added on to existing Von Duprin 98/99 and 33A/35A series devices Cost-effective solution The Von Duprin RU retrofit kit for exit devices is a cost-effective solution for these secondary openings that enables remote undogging for centralised lock down and door status monitoring with integrated request to exit (RX), latch bolt (LX) and door position switch (DPS) signaling capabilities. The RU connects wirelessly via BLE to the ENGAGE Gateway, providing real-time, bi-directional communication to the IDenticard PremiSys software via IP network connection directly to the Gateway. RU is a modular battery powered kit that can be added on to existing Von Duprin 98/99 and 33A/35A series devices. Centralised lockdown component The RM option is the sensor-only configuration for exit-only or fire-rated doors that require monitoring. It provides visibility to door status with the same RX, LX and DPS signals as the RU, without the centralised lockdown component. "IDenticard's team of access control specialists works closely with Allegion representatives to deliver premier solutions for the end user," said Aaron Henderson, director of sales at IDenticard Access Control. "This latest product integration enables IDenticard to deliver a more sophisticated enterprise solution for schools, hospitals and other facilities that would benefit from the ability to immediately lock down every door in their facility and gain peace of mind in knowing that all doors are secured."
