ASSA ABLOY showcases new access control solutions at Security Essen
ASSA ABLOY exhibit additions to their flagship card- and key-based access control solutions at Security Essen 2016, in Halle 11, Stand B16.
Among the innovative products on show is the eCLIQ locking system, fully electronic access control with programmable cylinders and battery-powered keys. Hardware and software enhancements to Aperio® and SMARTair™ wireless access control are also on show at the ASSA ABLOY stand.
Innovations in wireless electronic access control exhibited include:
• eCLIQ: CLIQ® is a security locking system with high-end microelectronics, programmable keys and cylinders, built to minimise the security risks associated with lost keys. eCLIQ is the new, fully electronic generation of CLIQ®. With eCLIQ, companies can bring electronic access control much deeper into their premises: eCLIQ can be fitted to doors without making any structural alterations. There are eCLIQ solutions for padlocks, mailboxes, elevators, and alarm systems, and eCLIQ components can secure openings both indoors and outdoors: the eCLIQ portfolio includes cylinders able to operate from –25°C to 85°C; the durable, battery-powered eCLIQ electronic key meets the IP67 waterproof standard.
• Aperio®: ASSA ABLOY showcases the latest Aperio® technology, battery-powered locks which integrate seamlessly with third-party access control systems from several market-leading manufacturers. Aperio® supports various RFID technologies including iCLASS®, MIFARE and LEGIC. The range includes online and offline cylinders, escutcheons, locks and dedicated server rack locks.
• SMARTair™: This stand-alone wireless access control system enables small to medium-sized businesses to go keyless quickly and affordably — and without any need to replace existing mechanical locks. The latest generation of real-time system management with SMARTair™ Wireless Online is showcased.
Also available at the stand (Halle 11, Stand B16) is a new market report researched by ASSA ABLOY and IFSECGlobal.com, packed with unique data covering 2016 trends in commercial electronic access control. Key findings point to the significant continued growth of wireless locking solutions, with still more potential waiting to be tapped — including in securing openings other than traditional doors, from cabinets to server racks.
Thomas Schulz, Director of Marketing and Communications at ASSA ABLOY EMEA says:
“Wireless technologies including Aperio®, SMARTair™ and CLIQ® are grabbing more and more share in the access control market. In fact, our detailed market research discovered that 29% of commercial properties are already using a wireless or hybrid wired/wireless access system. That’s an increase of 5% on similar research findings we published in 2014 — a big leap in just a couple of years.”
