One of the UK’s leading independent access control system designers, Access Control Services Ltd. (ACS Ltd.), continues to enhance the level of integration between their xPLAN system and the innovative Aperio® locking system by ASSA ABLOY Access Control.

ACS Ltd. has fully integrated the Aperio® wireless locking solution into the xPLAN V9.x access control system, creating a single point of administration and reporting for wired, wireless and wire-free systems, with additional support for other data on card appliances. Due to its lithium ion battery, Aperio® is cost-effective in both the short and long term due to a low cost of deployment and on-going running costs.

Access Control’s latest Aperio® wireless cylinders, PINpad escutcheon and L100 – the world’s first complete wireless security lock, have all been integrated into the xPLAN product line. The Aperio® all-in-one intelligent gateway controller by ACS Ltd. is compatible with the xPLAN V9.x software as well as all Aperio® battery powered locking devices, combining the function of an 8-way long-range wireless IP hub with a distributed intelligence 8-door controller for maximum performance and resilience.

Ray Phillips of ACS Ltd., said:

“Aperio® is the only battery powered locking solution we found that allowed us to create a ‘native’ integration (e.g. no third party software involvement).  

“We particularly liked the fact that Aperio® enabled the same locking devices to operate in on-line or off-line modes. It was especially appealing that a system could start life as off-line and, without any physical modification to the units, be switched to online at a later time, simply by the addition of hubs and gateway controllers.

“The xPLAN System can be used for small-scale applications or large projects, and the Aperio® system is easily integrated and flexible, which is essential when considering the varied needs of our clients.”

Hitesh Mistry, at Access Control, continued:

“ACS Ltd. is one of our most trusted and engaged partners, and is also one of the most advanced in terms of integration. Aperio® technology continues to evolve alongside the needs of our partners and end-users, in particular strengthening our partnership with ACS Ltd.”
