Abloy UK is showcasing its range of digital access solutions at The Security Event, held at the NEC in Birmingham from 5-7 April 2022.
Pat Jefferies, commercial director at Abloy UK, said the pandemic has prompted a major shift towards flexible working, which requires adaptable access control. "We’re seeing greater demand for solutions that utilise mobile credentials to accommodate the changing and increasingly complex requirements. Research shows over two-thirds of organisations will have adopted mobile access control to some extent within two years."
Products in Abloy’s portfolio include Incedo™ Business, Aperio®, SMARTair™, and CLIQ®, which can be combined with compliant electric locks to create a bespoke access control system, designed specifically for an organisation’s needs, and to meet building regulations.
IncedoTM Business is a flexible security ecosystem that combines ASSA ABLOY’s world-leading range of wireless locks and other access hardware with flexible software, multiple management options and the ability to scale on demand, in any direction.
Incedo connects security software and hardware within a single, seamless platform with the ability to have complete remote control of a premises and manage the ever-changing movement of people across multiple sites.
To meet increasing demand for mobile credentials, Abloy has recently launched ASSA ABLOY’s IncedoTM Business Mobile Keys that offer secure mobile access, simplified management and user convenience and efficiency.
Aperio technology offers cost-effective, integrated access control, and is the ideal retrofit option to update an existing access control system to wire-free, providing a simple, intelligent way to upgrade the controllability and security level of a premises.
It utilises a short distance wireless communication protocol, designed to link an online electronic access control system with an Aperio-enabled mechanical lock, offering affordable online door control of internal doors, existing access control system extension, and enhanced security.
SMARTair utilises electronic locks to provide advanced, user-friendly access management with multiple credential options. In addition to the Openow™ mobile solution which enables the sending, revoking and updating of virtual keys over the air in seconds, Abloy will be featuring the i-max electronic escutcheon ideal for areas of high traffic use and the i-gate digital padlock, that you lock and unlock with your mobile phone.
eCLIQ is a retro-fit solution to control the movement of people, and allows access to be easily granted, changed and removed while providing a wide range of data for health and safety purposes.
ASSA ABLOY PULSE is an intelligent, energy harvesting, future-proof solution you can install new or retro-fit in existing sites, which is suitable for all kinds of environments, from schools to assisted living blocks and multi-resident apartments.
Abloy also offers compliant Low Energy Electric Locks, which only consume energy when the lock is being used, in contrast to door magnets which require a constant electric current to keep the door locked. These Electric Locks have an annual energy consumption of 0.02kWh compared to 52.0kWh per year for those reliant on magnets.
