Abloy UK focuses on digital access solutions at The Security Event

ABLOY UK is showcasing its comprehensive range of innovative digital access solutions on Stand H30 in Hall 3 at The Security Event, which is being held at the NEC in Birmingham from 5-7 April.

Pat Jefferies, commercial director at Abloy UK, told Security Matters: “We’ve seen a major shift towards flexible working since the pandemic, which inevitably requires adaptable access control. In addition, we’re witnessing greater demand for solutions that use mobile credentials to accommodate these changing and increasingly complex requirements.”

Jefferies – who served as a guest on Episode 3 of the Security Matters Podcast – continued: “Research shows that, at least to some extent, over two-thirds of organisations will have adopted mobile access control within two years. That comes as no surprise, though, given the extensive benefits these systems offer, not only in terms of meeting security challenges, but also in relation to Health and Safety, compliance and efficiency.”

He added: “With the wide range of digital access solutions now available from Abloy, the possibilities are endless and we can meet virtually any requirements. We’re able to specify a tailored solutions to provide flexible, scaleable and compliant security and also help in controlling the movement of people in a wide range of building types and applications.”

Jefferies concluded: “Sustainability is also a key focus, both for our business operations and for those of our clients. We prioritise meeting our own sustainability targets and ensure the solutions we specify on behalf of our customers create a more sustainable future for their organisations as well.”

Extensive portfolio

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 current Building Regulations.

Incedo Business is a flexible security ecosystem that combines ASSA ABLOY’s range of wireless locks and other access hardware with flexible software, multiple management options and the ability to scale on demand and in any direction.

Incedo connects security software and hardware within a single and seamless platform, harnessing 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 Incedo Business Mobile Keys that offer secure mobile access, simplified management and user convenience and efficiency.

Aperio technology

Aperio technology offers cost-effective and integrated access control. It’s the ideal retrofit option to update an existing access control system to wire-free, providing a simple and intelligent way in which to upgrade the controllability and security level of a given premises.

The technology uses 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 extensions and enhanced security.

SMARTair uses electronic locks to provide advanced and 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, which is ideal for areas of high traffic use, and the i-gate digital padlock that may be locked and unlocked via smart phone.

Retrofit solution

eCLIQ is a retrofit solution designed to control the movement of people and allows access to be easily granted, changed and removed, while also providing a wide range of data for Health and Safety purposes.

ASSA ABLOY PULSE is an intelligent, energy harvesting, future-proof solution that can be installed as a new solution or for retrofit purposes at existing sites. It’s suitable for all kinds of operational environments, from schools through 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 requiring a constant electric current to keep the door locked. These electric locks have an annual energy consumption of 0.02 kWh compared to 52.0 kWh per annum for those reliant on magnets.
