Finland-based security and locking manufacturer Abloy Oy (part of the ASSA ABLOY group) has introduced ABLOY CUMULUS, a platform for keyless access that combines quality hardware products with secure access and management applications, bringing solutions together into a single ecosystem with an integrated cloud service.
The new ABLOY CUMULUS platform for keyless access combines quality locking hardware with secure access and management applications. Products arriving first to market include the CUMULUS padlock and CUMULUS mobile app and backend. The platform is ideal for professional end users in businesses such as parcel delivery, cash-in-transit and construction.
“CUMULUS is our next step in the ‘keyvolution’ — the development in which mechanical keys are transforming into digital ones,” said Jussi Ahvalo, vice president, international sales for Abloy Oy. “We have wrapped our more than 100 years of security expertise into digital solutions for connected access management.”
CUMULUS ensures secure access in commercial real estate, public spaces, housing, and sites essential for the functioning of society. It offers interfaces for third-party applications and software development. The CUMULUS range of keyless, online access solutions — from mobile keys and padlocks to upcoming electric locks and controllers — can be administered with any software tool that best suits the customers’ needs. By selecting ABLOY OS INCEDO, the organization can also manage other ABLOY solutions with the same tool, such as electromechanical PROTEC2 CLIQTM and mechanical keys.
“CUMULUS minimizes management risks and provides a secure, tailored, always online and evolving access platform for our customer organizations,” Ahvalo added. “It is a cloud service for modern security management. With CUMULUS we provide continuously up-to-date, data-secure access management products and software.”
CUMULUS is targeted at commercial and professional end users (PEU). In the first phase its primary vertical markets are parcel deliveries, finance (cash-in-transit) and construction. Geographically, CUMULUS will first be aimed select markets in Europe and Southeast Asia. More markets will be added gradually.
The first CUMULUS-branded products that will be available for customers later this year, include a padlock, a mobile application, a cloud-based software engine (backend) and application programming interfaces (APIs). The APIs allow integrations to third-party applications such as booking, reporting, resource management and access control systems. New products will continuously be added to the CUMULUS range.
