Assa Abloy: Wireless Locking for French University
Upgrading security and access technology makes people feel safer - and has a real impact on the day-to-day working lives of everyone who comes into contact with it. Wireless locks are a faster and more cost-effective way to extend an access control system than relying on mechanical keys. A recent major modernization project at Luminy University, France provided Assa Abloy with the opportunity to upgrade campus security with more than 400 Aperio online wireless locking devices.
The facility management team now controls everything in real time – legacy and new Aperio-enabled doors – from their existing ARD interface. Using the same integrated system, staff can book seminar rooms and students no longer have to hang around at the classroom door: their own access cards let them in at timetabled lesson slots.
Aperio cylinders, escutcheons and complete locks can be installed at all kinds of premises on both exterior and interior doors, from certified fire doors to meeting rooms, labs and offices; wooden, glass or aluminum doors are all suitable. The locks are compatible with all common lock profiles: Euro, French, Finnish, Scandinavian and Swiss. The integration with an existing system can be online or offline.
