Specialist serviced office providers i2 Office have installed new wireless locks from ASSA ABLOY Access Control’s innovative Aperio solution.
i2 Office offers fully serviced and furnished offices of the highest quality with the latest technology to suit all sizes of business in city centre locations across the UK.
Prior to Aperio, each sub-let i2 office was being hardwired into an existing access control system, which was proving costly and time consuming.
After being introduced to Aperio via OCS Security Solutions, each office is now secured via Aperio wireless locks, which seamlessly links to the existing access control system without the need to cable around the doors.
Says Philip Grace, CEO of i2 Office: “Our mission at i2 Office is to provide the best serviced offices available in the market. We therefore only select the finest buildings in great locations. Even when it came to upgrading our security systems, we were looking for inspirational technology.
“Aperio appealed to us because of its innovative design and its ability to work with the security solution in place. We have found it really easy to use, as access can be granted or denied instantly without the need for updating cards. This is especially great when there is a tenant changeover as it saves us valuable time and resource. Overall Aperio has enabled an aesthetically pleasing, safe and secure environment for everyone, which is great news.”
The Aperio range is designed to upgrade mechanically locked doors and wirelessly connect them online or offline to new or existing access control systems, with minimal modification to doors and premises, offering a cost effective and simple security upgrade.
For i2 Office, a selection of over 200 E100 escutcheons and C100 cylinder platforms have been fitted to date, with every office across the UK anticipated to change to Aperio access control.
Larry Lowther, Operations Manager at OCS Security Solution, added: “The features of Aperio make it a simple and intelligent way of upgrading the controllability and security level of any premises. By utilising the existing access control system in place and not altering the doors in anyway, the installation costs are also minimised so more offices can be upgraded in shorter timescales.”
A wireless evolution for online door control, Aperio is a convenient and cost-effective enabling technology, providing end users with an intelligent way to raise the security level of their premises.
David Hodgkiss, Sales Manager at ASSA ABLOY Access Control, concluded: “ASSA ABLOY Access Control offers Aperio state of the art technology from a global leader in security. This assures our customers of high quality security that can complement existing access control systems, without the need to modify the door or the aesthetics of the environment. An all round smart solution as proven by its implementation at all i2 Office locations across the UK.”
