Aperio locks

Wireless access control solutions for hospitals

Hospitals should be welcoming public spaces, yet they also house sensitive assets that must be protected: patients, doctors, nurses and support staff; controlled medicines and confidential patient data; and labs, with their expensive equipment and testing materials. The security challenge goes way beyond what the old-fashioned mechanical lock and key was designed to meet. 

An access control system with wired doors and programmable RFID smart cards can solve many of the problems, but wireless locks offer the most affordable way to extend access control much deeper into a site. 

Adding wireless locks doesn’t require a hospital to rip up its installed system and start again. ASSA ABLOY Aperio locks simply “plug in” to an existing system, to bring monitored security to many more openings than would be affordable with wired doors. They interoperate seamlessly with building management systems, linking wirelessly via a communications hub to the existing central system(for an online integration). An Aperio installation can incorporate online or offline locks — or a mix of both. From a compliance perspective, online integration enables audit trails to be generated for any monitored lock, including the battery-powered Aperio locks, at any time — making a proper investigation of any unauthorised entry not just feasible, but fast. 

Equipped with Aperio, facility managers have real-time status information about their premises, and greatly enhanced protection for wards, clinics and management offices.
