The AXIS A1001 network door controller operates on a flexible platform, built to easily adapt as security needs at a site change. Now with seamless integration of Aperio® wireless cylinders, escutcheons, locks and server solutions, administrators can manage an entire AXIS access management system from a single, easy-to-use interface, controlling standard wired locks alongside Aperio® battery-powered locks from ASSA ABLOY.
AXIS and Aperio integration offerings
Once installed, an Aperio® RS-485 Hub can coordinate up to 8 Aperio® locks within a typical range of 15 to 25 metres, communicating with the admin system via a powerful AXIS A1001 IP network controller. One AXIS A1001 door controller can manage one wired door and one Aperio® hub, managing up to a total of 9 doors per hub. 7777AES 128-bit encryption ensures communication between lock and system is secure. Online Aperio® integration gives facility managers real-time status information about their premises.
Aperio® locks are wireless, so there’s no need for expensive or time-consuming cabling during installation. The AXIS A1001 uses Power over Ethernet (PoE), which eliminates the need for power cables to the controllers, too. If needs change at a facility — perhaps managers want to control access to more site doors — it’s quick, efficient and easy for an installer to fit Aperio® locks and integrate the doors with the AXIS Entry Manager control panel. Aperio® components are compatible with Euro, French, Finnish, Scandinavian and Swiss door profiles.
Aperio wireless locks
“Aperio® locks are also extremely energy-efficient,” says Chris Bone, Vice President Digital Access Solutions at ASSA ABLOY EMEA. “The locks run on standard lithium-ion batteries, and only ‘wake up’ when prompted by a smart card or other user credential. They are not connected to the mains, and use no power when inactive.”
Aperio® locks enable facility managers to bring monitored access and detailed audit trails to more doors in a facility than would ever be desirable or affordable with standard wired access control.
Users experience no disruption to their routines. They open both wired doors and Aperio® wireless controlled doors with the same card, using standard RFID technology. The newly integrated locks run the latest Aperio® V3 technology, ensuring remote unlocking commands pass from system to an Aperio® equipped door almost instantly.
Easy installation and management
“The joint solution fills a market need for smaller installations needing wireless devices,” says Stephanie Hensler, Director Business Development at Axis Communications. “With the AXIS A1001, this allows for easy installation and management of wired and wireless doors within the same solution.”
Integrated access control system
With Aperio® wireless access technology, AXIS Entry Manager is a complete, scalable, fully integrated and future-proofed access control system.
