ASSA ABLOY, maker of door opening solutions, announces a strategic partnership with leading access control hardware provider Lenel, to integrate ASSA ABLOY’s line of Aperio wireless locking devices with the Lenel OnGuard platform.

The Aperio integration will provide Lenel customers with an easy, affordable way to connect additional openings to their existing systems. Aperio is a global wireless platform available across a broad range of locking hardware from ASSA ABLOY Group brands, offering the flexibility to address a variety of applications throughout any facility.

In addition to Aperio, IP-enabled WiFi and Power over Ethernet locks from ASSA ABLOY Group brands, Corbin Russwin and SARGENT, are also integrated with the Lenel OnGuard platform. The IP-enabled locks have been part of the Lenel Open Access Alliance Program (OAAP), a program open to manufacturers interested in developing software interfaces to the Lenel OnGuard platform, since June 2012. This integration provides an innovative solution, which allows facilities to leverage existing network infrastructure for simple, cost-effective expansion of their access control systems.

For additional flexibility, Integrated Wiegand locks from Corbin Russwin and SARGENT are also compatible with all Lenel platforms. SARGENT Harmony Integrated Wiegand locks are also available with 5502 output format for seamless integration with Lenel's Micro Controllers and DirecDoor access control hardware.

“We are looking forward to our partnership with ASSA ABLOY,” stated Joe Kirmser, president, Lenel Systems. “ASSA ABLOY has developed an industry-wide reputation as the leader in door and lock solutions and as a result of this partnership, our customers will receive best-in-class technology and functionality to better manage and protect people, property and assets.”

“Our partnership with Lenel is very important to ASSA ABLOY,” stated Martin Huddart, Vice President of Electronic Technologies for ASSA ABLOY Americas. “This strategic initiative brings together two industry leaders to deliver a broader range of wireless access control solutions in the market.”
