Vanderbilt integrates Aperio® with latest ACT Enterprise access control solution

Vanderbilt, a leading provider of state-of-the-art security systems, has integrated the Aperio® wireless locking technology from ASSA ABLOY Access Control with its new ACT Enterprise platform.

The decision by Vanderbilt to integrate products from ASSA ABLOY Access Control’s leading Aperio® portfolio with ACT Enterprise will enable customers to easily add mechanical locks to their access control system. Offered at an affordable price, Aperio® ensures users require minimal additional hardware to upgrade their premises to wireless access control.

With the latest version of ACT Enterprise available now, the system includes a rules mapping engine and a smartphone app that enables users to stay in control of their facilities’ access control requirements from the palm of their hand.

One of the newest ASSA ABLOY products that the ACT Enterprise platform is compatible with is the Aperio® H100. Launched only last year, the Aperio® H100 is a stylish, slim door handle that can be retrofitted to almost any interior door. Requiring no drilling or wiring to install, the Aperio® H100 has been designed to complement most modern commercial office environments, and works with common European and Scandinavian mortise locks, in wooden, steel, tubular frame or glass doors with standard lock cases.

Andrew Fulton, Head of Access Control Product Line at Vanderbilt, said: “The security systems market is moving towards more intelligent and intuitive solutions, which require only one-time data entry for users, permissions, configuration and system behaviour. To meet this demand, we made the decision to integrate our ACT Enterprise access control solution with ASSA ABLOY Access Control’s Aperio® products. These have an excellent reputation in the market for being a reliable, trusted and high-performance access control range.

“We believe that ACT Enterprise’s integration with Aperio® will provide our customers with faster, more cost-effective access control installations, while enhancing our functionality and reach in the market.”

David Smyth, Regional Sales Manager at ASSA ABLOY Access Control, added: “As a leading security systems provider, we are thrilled to integrate our Aperio® technology with Vanderbilt’s newest access control platform. Helping commercial businesses to quickly and conveniently implement an intelligent access control system across their site, our battery-operated Aperio® innovations are fast to install, dependable and offered in a stylish, contemporary design.”
