New Haven, CT - ASSA ABLOY, the global leader in door opening solutions, and RedCloud, an innovative provider of web-based, access control solutions, announce the integration of RedCloud's revolutionary access control platform with ASSA ABLOY'S range of Aperio(TM) wireless locks.
Aperio integrates with RedCloud's line of web-based, access control network appliances: RedCloud Express (control of 1-32 doors), RedCloud Enterprise (24-2000+ doors), and RedCloud Virtual (24-2000+ doors). RedCloud Express is a compact, all-in-one, access control network appliance designed for small-to-medium-sized installations, such as schools, offices, hospitals and museums. RedCloud Enterprise is a rack-mounted, access control network appliance that enables enterprises of all sizes to secure their facilities, people and assets across multiple offices, buildings or locations from any web browser. RedCloud Virtual is VMware Ready for deployment in a virtual server environment, eliminating the need to maintain a separate, stand-alone server or dedicated network appliance.
All RedCloud products are accessible anytime, anywhere from any standard web browser, including Firefox, Safari or Internet Explorer, with RedCloud Security Management Software. This 100-percent, browser-based web application is embedded in all RedCloud network appliances, allowing security and facility managers to control employee and visitor facility access privileges quickly and easily from any location.
"We're excited to bring this new level of flexibility to our customers," said Jeff Ross, Vice President, Product Management, RedCloud. "The integration of Aperio Technology with RedCloud's access control platform will provide a superior security solution that can meet the unique requirements of any business, regardless of size or number of facilities."
"RedCloud's products provide customers with innovative access control over a wide range of end-user markets and any number of doors," said Martin Huddart, Vice President of Electronic Technologies, ASSA ABLOY Americas. "This integration offers customers a flexible, affordable access control solution for enhanced security levels and is the perfect complement to our family of Aperio wireless locks that can address almost any application within a facility."
Aperio is a global, wireless platform that provides an easy, affordable way to connect additional openings to an existing electronic access control system. It uses wireless communication (IEEE 802.15.4) between the lock and an Aperio hub to link to an electronic access control system. This simplifies installation, reducing costs and complexity compared to traditional access control. With the flexibility to address almost any application, Aperio wireless technology is available in the SARGENT IN100 and PR100 commercial and institutional locks, Adams Rite A100 narrow stile locks, Medeco M100 eCylinders, and HES K100 cabinet locks.
