ASSA ABLOY, and RedCloud, a provider of web-based, access control solutions, announced the integration of RedCloud's access control platform with ASSA ABLOY'S range of Aperio™ wireless locks. 

Aperio integrates with RedCloud's line of web-based, access control network appliances: RedCloud Express (control of 1-32 doors), RedCloud Enterprise (24-2000+ doors), and RedCloud Virtual (24-2000+ doors). RedCloud Express is a compact, all-in-one, access control network appliance designed for small-to-medium-sized installations, such as schools, offices, hospitals and museums. RedCloud Enterprise is a rack-mounted, access control network appliance that enables enterprises of all sizes to secure their facilities, people and assets across multiple offices, buildings or locations from any web browser. RedCloud Virtual is VMware Ready for deployment in a virtual server environment, eliminating the need to maintain a separate, stand-alone server or dedicated network appliance.

All RedCloud products are accessible anytime, anywhere from any standard web browser with RedCloud Security Management Software. This 100-percent, browser-based web application is embedded in all RedCloud network appliances.

“RedCloud's products provide customers with innovative access control over a wide range of end user markets and any number of doors," said Martin Huddart, vice president of Electronic Technologies, ASSA ABLOY Americas. "This integration offers customers a flexible, affordable access control solution for enhanced security levels and is the perfect complement to our family of Aperio wireless locks that can address almost any application within a facility."

Aperio is a global, wireless platform that provides an easy, affordable way to connect additional openings to an existing electronic access control system. Aperio wireless technology is available in the SARGENT IN100 and PR100 commercial and institutional locks, Adams Rite A100 narrow stile locks, Medeco M100 eCylinders, and HES K100 cabinet locks.
