Global Lock Brand Aperio Wireless Lock Family Now HID Technology-Certified

Upgrading from one secure technology to another can be expensive and time demanding. When it comes to door lock technology, the amount of work in installing new access control systems, wiring and structural changes to the doors is daunting and a complete turn-off. Fortunately, you don’t have to go through all that if you are thinking of upgrading your access control system. HID Global has announced ASSA ABLOY’s innovative Aperio wireless lock technology as a genuine HID value proposition for performance, value and service.

This announcement makes ASSA ABLOY’s Aperio locks Genuine HID technology-certified, providing organizations with a trusted, advanced and dependable secure identity solution that wirelessly links mechanical door locks to existing access control systems enabling them to be opened with RFID cards rather than use of keys. This also means that Aperio will support HID Global’s iCLASSE SE platform which includes Seos credentials from HID Global, which form the benchmark for highly interoperable, adaptable and secure access control solutions that guarantee improved security, privacy and portability.

What does all of this mean? ASSA ABLOY’s Aperio wireless lock family now has the assurance of supporting a wide array of innovative and interoperable solutions that meet ISO-certified standards. It also means that when you buy into the Aperio wireless lock family, you have a global product that has the strongest delivery-and-response platform plus global product warranty that includes agency certifications. It also guarantees that any technology investments in the Aperio wireless lock family will work with future products including NFC-enabled devices.

According to the VP of HID Connect with HID Global, Kerry Reid, “This certification brings the world’s most successful lock brand into the industry’s top access control portfolio.” HID Global and ASSA ABLOY now have a combined portfolio that extends to mobile access control and locking solutions that work with NFC-enabled devices and cover a significant range of innovative products and solutions that meet customers’ secure identity needs.
