ASSA ABLOY and Gallagher, a New Zealand-based company that provides premium integrated security solutions to a wide range of customers globally, announced the integration of Gallagher’s Command Centre with ASSA ABLOY’S range of Aperio™ wireless locks. 

Gallagher Command Centre is the central management tool for the Gallagher security system (formerly Cardax FT). It is a comprehensive Microsoft® Windows®-based security system that provides high-level security management for global access control, intruder alarms, voice over IP, and alarm management and perimeter security requirements. The Gallagher system is scalable, with Gallagher Command Centre server options available based on the number of doors, from less than 16 doors to an unlimited number.  It can be incorporated into a company’s existing local area network, wide area network, or reside on its own dedicated network.

Gallagher Command Centre links to Gallagher Controllers (6000, 3000 and 5000GL) and to operator workstations over Ethernet using TCP/ IP, a world standard network and Internet transmission protocol.  Using this protocol means the system communications are Internet compatible.

Aperio is a wireless technology from ASSA ABLOY that provides a way to connect additional openings to an existing electronic access control system. More than 40 access control partners have already adopted the technology globally, enabling facilities to easily extend the number of doors that can be monitored with their currently installed panels and systems, the company said.
