Aperio® at the University of Birmingham
A student residence at The University of Birmingham has been supplied with the Aperio® wireless locking solution by ASSA ABLOY Access Control, a UK division of ASSA ABLOY, the global leader in door opening solutions.
Chamberlain, based in Edgbaston, is a brand new student accommodation development comprised of a 21-storey tower and three low-rise blocks.
The student rooms have been fitted with the Aperio® solution, which is fully integrated into the Gallagher Command Centre, which is an industry leading critical business platform, delivering organisational security and operational continuity.
Gallagher’s integration with Aperio® provides the University with a cost-effective solution which removes the need for mechanical keys. In addition, the integration is available and supported worldwide and is applicable for all industries.
Jason Boyce, Sales Manager at Gallagher, said:
“We were pleased to be able to provide the University of Birmingham with a solution that integrates tightly with their existing campus-wide system.
“Unlike other systems, Aperio® provides audit trails online, allowing for the real time monitoring of doors. This allows the University to ensure that all students arrive safely to their rooms during arrivals weekend.
David Hodgkiss, National Sales Manager at ASSA ABLOY Access Control, said:
“We were pleased that our extensive experience within the education sector has enabled us to provide the University of Birmingham with a seamlessly integrated solution with our Aperio® technology. The University now has plans to roll Aperio® out to other residences.”
Neil Titterington, Sales Manager at 2020 Vision Systems, said:
“We wanted to ensure we delivered a faultless installation service to the University of Birmingham, who we have been working with for over fifteen years. Together with ASSA ABLOY Access Control and Gallagher we were able to install the Aperio® solution on time at Chamberlain, with minimum disruption to the students and staff.”
