ASSA ABLOY is making access more convenient by extending electronic solutions to openings in commercial facilities and multi-family residences. For example, the award-winning Adams Rite G100 digital glass door lock with Aperio wireless technology offers a surface-mount solution for interior all-glass doors that integrates with existing software. Now glass openings can utilise single-card or dual-factor authentication without the need for cutting and drilling to install the lock. The latest keypad access product by Yale, the nexTouch Keypad Exit Trim, easily upgrades exit devices with keyless technology in commercial, multi-use and multi-family spaces. This scalable solution functions as a stand-alone keypad lock, or it can be integrated with a data-on-card or wireless access system.

Jeff Huggins, Director Government Programs, ASSA ABLOY Door Security Solutions, says "The event is an important component of ASSA ABLOY’s core commitment to helping support our military communities across the country." Supporting the troops “Leaving for and returning from deployment is no simple undertaking,” Huggins said. “Not only do these types of events help support troops directly, but they also raise awareness of the complex and emotionally taxing effort these men and women have made for our country. We’re extremely grateful for their service, and we know that gratitude is common within the ISC West community, so we are excited to get as many people involved as possible.”
The programme will help raise awareness that returning from deployment is not as simple as arriving home Reaffirming its commitment to support returning veterans and the USO organisation, ASSA ABLOY is partnering with the USO to provide returning troops waiting for the return of their personal baggage with homecoming bags loaded with food, toiletries and other personal items. ASSA ABLOY encourages attendees to come to the company’s booth at ASIS (#2815) September 28th- October 1st and join ASSA ABLOY employees in packing homecoming bags to show support for returning troops. Raising awareness According to Jeff Huggins, Director Government Programs, ASSA ABLOY Door Security Solutions, the programme underscores ASSA ABLOY’s support of the troops and will help raise awareness that returning from deployment is not as simple as arriving home. “Coming home is complex and everything we can do to show our support and normalise the process is effort well-spent,” Huggins said today. “We’re grateful for their service and applaud the work of the USO. It’s clear that this sentiment is prevalent throughout the ASIS community, so running the programme at this show is timely.” Commenting on the programme, Bob Hope USO Executive Director Bob Kurkjian said today, “Our troops are working to protect freedom for our nation and our allies each and every day. That often means going into harm’s way to support our friends and maintain freedom in communities around the world. When organisations such as ASSA ABLOY support Bob Hope USO’s work with our troops and their families, they are helping our military families on a very personal level that is greatly appreciated.”
