Assa Abloy: Wireless Access Control Cuts Lost Key Hassles
One growing student accommodation block in southern France, Crous Montpellier, has fixed lost key problems at the large facility with a transient population by exchanging their mechanical locks for Aperio cylinders with built-in RFID readers. The easy-to-fit locks have transformed facility management for the accommodation block. To date, 1,500 wireless cylinders are seamlessly integrated online with their ARD security system, which gives facility managers an overview of block security in real time. Now, when a student loses their key-card, it’s simple for a site manager to cancel the old credential and issue a new one. There is no need to engage a locksmith to replace physical locks, saving everyone’s time and Crous money. Because the system is integrated online, managers can block lost credentials quickly using the software without visiting the door. Aperio easily integrates with payment and other smart-card systems, as well as access control.
