Gareth Ellams, Managing Director of ASSA ABLOY Access Control, said: “Common problems with traditional security systems include lost or stolen keys. It can be inconvenient, time-consuming, and expensive to change these locks, and the re-issuing of keys can be considerable. There is also the risk of stolen keys being copied, which compromises security even further.” Protection against theft and malicious damage "The system’s ability to update who is able to access a room online and in real-time is hugely advantageous to education sites" “It is also not uncommon for larger education sites, such as secondary schools and universities, to leave doors unlocked for long periods of time because of the inconvenience and hassle of opening and securing the room every time it’s entered. This, however, increases the possibility of opportunistic theft and malicious damage.” “Aperio offers a smart and easily-integrated solution that is ideally suited to the education sector. The system’s ability to update who is able to access a room online and in real-time is hugely advantageous to education sites, who might need to respond fast to ensure security measures can be implemented quickly.” Intelligent building management system The innovative access control solution has an unrivalled track record across many educational institutions, including the University of Birmingham and the University of East Anglia.
