Leading integrated access control solutions specialist TDSi is reaping the benefits of being integrated with Assa Abloy Access Control’s Aperio locking system.
TDSi became the first to partner with Assa Abloy Access Control’s popular Aperio wireless locking solutions which are designed to use innovative IP hub technology in delivering “sustainable total building security”.
Aperio was featured on TDSi’s stand at IFSEC International, operating with its EXgarde 4.2 fully-featured access management system designed to support multiple doors as standard. There’s also an option to extend using an unlimited door licence and meet end user requirements for even the largest of access control networks.
John Davies, TDSi’s managing director (who was named in IFSEC International’s Top 40 listing of the most influential people in the security world), said: “By connecting with Assa Abloy Access Control’s Aperio IP hub technology, we can present a simple installation solution with greater flexibility to upgrade the controllability and security level of any premises. IFSEC International 2014 represented the perfect opportunity for us to demonstrate this to our customers and stand visitors.”
Integration with TDSi’s EXgarde solution
The Aperio range of cylinders, locks and escutcheons integrate with TDSi’s Exgarde via Aperio IP hub technology. By using Aperio in this way, TDSi supports MIFARE and 125 KHz credentials to provide an overall solution that’s cost-effective for the end user, with minimal modification needed to doors and premises.
The added advantage is that Aperio can assist in bringing down energy usage as well as carbon dioxide consumption due to the long battery life. Overall, this means access control solutions may be extended even further across a site at a lower cost per door.
Damian Marsh, the managing director at Assa Abloy Access Control UK, added: “Aperio is well recognised as an extremely cost-effective and sustainable way of eliminating key control issues. By way of example, White Paper research proves it can save at least £9,800 in running and maintenance costs for a typical 1,000 unit student accommodation block when compared to wired access control doors.”
Marsh continued: “However, building an innovative product is not enough on its own. This is where working closely with our OEM customers and access control specialists is vital. Assa Abloy Access Control has continued a positive working relationship with TDSi, and the company’s capability and the successful integration only works to further enhance our joint business philosophy to deliver real additional value to the proposition offered to our customers.”
