Abloy Oy announced ABLOY CUMULUS, a platform for keyless access, combining quality hardware products with secure access and management applications. It brings all the solutions together into a single ecosystem with a risk-free, integrated cloud service.
“CUMULUS is our next step in the ‘keyvolution’ — the development in which mechanical keys are transforming into digital ones. We have wrapped our more than one hundred years of security expertise into digital solutions for connected access management,” said Jussi Ahvalo, Vice President, International Sales, Abloy Oy.
The world is becoming keyless, access rights are going digital, and customers want everything to be integrative. Many property owners and managers are planning to switch to access management that is seamlessly location-independent while securing all their keyless access points.
The key to keyless access
CUMULUS ensures secure access in commercial real estate, public spaces, housing, and sites essential for the functioning of society. It offers interfaces for third-party applications and software development.
CUMULUS range of keyless, online access solutions can be administered with any software tool that best suits the needs
The CUMULUS range of keyless, online access solutions from mobile keys and padlocks to upcoming electric locks and controllers can thus be administered with any software tool that best suits the customers’ needs. By selecting ABLOY OS INCEDO, the organisation can also manage other ABLOY solutions with the same tool, such as electromechanical PROTEC2 CLIQ™ and mechanical keys.
“CUMULUS minimises management risks and provides a secure, tailored, always online and evolving access platform for our customer organisations. It is a cloud service for modern security management. With CUMULUS we provide continuously up-to-date, data-secure access management products and software,” said Jussi Ahvalo.
CUMULUS padlock and software first to market
CUMULUS is targeted at commercial and professional end-users (PEU). In the first phase, its primary vertical markets are parcel deliveries, finance (cash-in-transit), and construction. Geographically, CUMULUS will first be aimed at select markets in Europe and Southeast Asia. More markets will be added gradually.
The first CUMULUS-branded products that will be available for customers later this year include a padlock, a mobile application, a cloud-based software engine (backend), and application programming interfaces (APIs). The APIs allow integrations to third-party applications such as booking, reporting, resource management, and access control systems. New products will continuously be added to the CUMULUS range.
