|The joint solution offers customers a complete easy-to-use access control system|
ASSA ABLOY, the global leader in door opening solutions, and Open Options, Inc., a technology-based access control and software development company, announce the integration of Open Options' DNA Fusion™ with ASSA ABLOY'S range of Aperio™ wireless locks.
The joint solution offers customers a complete yet easy-to-use access control system, seamlessly combining the flexibility of ASSA ABLOY'S Aperio wireless locks with a software package that combines access control, video, data, and audio. Open Options will be supporting Mercury Powered Aperio products, making integration into Mercury-based access control systems seamless.
DNA Fusion is designed with an open platform approach. Built from the ground up to work with the industry standard Mercury Security access control panels, DNA Fusion is designed for the extended enterprise, taking full advantage of the Distributed Network Architecture model. The program, which runs off any standard Windows platform (professional version), allows users to monitor several systems through a common interface including audio and IP video recording. In addition, the program's feature-rich profile belies its user-friendly "drag and drop" operation.
Aperio is a wireless technology from ASSA ABLOY that provides an easy, affordable way to connect additional openings to an existing electronic access control system. Offering wireless communication (IEEE 802.15.4), the simplicity and flexibility of Aperio allow lower-cost installations than traditional access control with less complexity than other wireless options in the market. With over 40 access control partners that have already adopted the technology globally, facilities can easily extend the number of doors that can be monitored with their currently installed panels and systems.
"We're very pleased to bring our customers the simplicity and unmatched functionality of the Aperio wireless solution," said Brent Doherty, Vice President of Marketing for Open Options. "The Aperio product is not only reliable, it eliminates costly construction at the door. Combined with our DNA Fusion, Aperio becomes an extremely effective and cost-efficient option." "Our partnership with Open Options offers customers an excellent solution for today's expanding access control needs,"
said Martin Huddart, V.P. of Electronic Technologies, ASSA ABLOY Americas. "With DNA Fusion, facilities can easily deploy Aperio technology to expand their access control footprint and enhance overall security."
