Assa Aperio is a product line with wireless locks from the global company Assa Abloy. The locks come in different variants including handles, door blade readers, and digital cylinders. Wireless locks are battery operated and cost less to install than traditional electric locks and readers. For these reasons, they can be a good alternative for extending the access control system to inner doors (e.g. offices and meeting rooms) or other doors where cost or access to power is a limiting factor.
With Aperio, the lock units communicate over a proprietary wireless protocol (on 2.4 GHz) to an Aperio "hub", which is then connected to the door controller using RS485.
Aperio is compatible with Axis A1001 and A1601 Network Door Controllers. One Axis door controller can simultaneously manage one Aperio hub and one traditional reader and one or two locks connected directly to the Axis controller. One Aperio hub can manage a maximum of 8 Aperio locks / doors. It follows from this that one Axis door controller can manage a maximum of 9 doors (1 directly + 8 via the hub).
Aperio lock units can read most common card formats (e.g. Mifare Classic, DESFire, HID iClass) and also be remote opened from the Telcred Access Manager administration interface or from Telcred Entry.
