Controlsoft integrates Aperio with Identity Access platform
Controlsoft, a leading developer, manufacturer and distributor of access control solutions, has fully integrated its latest Identity Access platform with the Aperio wireless locking technology from the ASSA ABLOY Door Hardware & Access Control Group.
By updating and upgrading its Identity Access platform to fully integrate with the Aperio AH30 1-to-8 communication hub, Controlsoft's customers can easily add mechanical doors to their existing access control system. Aperio ensures users require minimal additional hardware to upgrade their premises to wireless access control.
A communications hub providing a wireless connection with up to eight doors, the Aperio AH30 operates within a 25-metre transmission range, and has been designed for prompt, cost-effective installation and integration. Suitable for interior doors, the hub is particularly practical for hallways with a number of adjacent corridors.
Easy to use and intuitive, Controlsoft's Identity Access is a complete security management software. The individual access rights of employees, visitors and contractors can be assigned according to their responsibilities. Individual time restrictions can also be applied for each access control point, and the system offers full auditing and reporting capabilities.
The software also includes advanced features such as a lockdown function, which prohibits authorised users from accessing doors, as well as a further function that can allow for multiple levels of lockdown, depending on the scenario. Identity Access can even be integrated with a fire alarm system, so that selected doors automatically open when a fire alarm is activated.
Jonathan Summers, Managing Director at Controlsoft, said: "We are committed to providing a comprehensive range of access control solutions that are competitively priced, easy to install and highly secure. It is with this commitment in mind that we have fully integrated our Controlsoft access control solution with the Aperio AH30 1-to-8 communications hub from the Door Hardware & Access Control Group.
"The AH30 has an excellent reputation as a reliable, functional and high-performance access control solution, and this integration will help us provide customers with faster, more effective installations."
David Hodgkiss, Director of Access Control at the Door Hardware & Access Control Group, added: "As one of our original Aperio partners, we are delighted to continue our long-standing relationship with Controlsoft and integrate our award-winning technology with its latest access control platform, Identity Access. Battery-operated Aperio innovations are highly reliable, available in a stylish, contemporary design, and offer a quick and easy installation."
