First Aperio integration in APAC region


The first ASSA ABLOY Aperio integration in the Asia-Pacific region together with Gallagher Security Management Systems is opening up the market for Aperio sales around the world.

Gallagher Security Management Systems is the first manufacturer in the Asia-Pacific region to support Aperio technology in their Cardax FT solution for integrated access control and intruder alarm monitoring.

Michael Söderberg, ASSA ABLOY’s Business Manager for Electronic Access Control says: “We are very proud of this partnership; it is a significant step towards our objective of radically expanding the online access control market with Aperio technology. The Gallagher Group has distributors in more than 100 countries, so this partnership is important to ASSA ABLOY from a global perspective.”

Presented at this year’s ASIAL Security show in Sydney, Australia, the integrated solution drew much attention – even more than when Aperio technology was presented on its own at the same show last year.

Michael says:  “Last year’s show was the starting point for us to start discussing Aperio with access control manufacturers. At the show this year we showed the Cardax integrated solution and together with Gallagher, we are opening up the market for Aperio sales.”

Travis Thorn, product manager for electronic access control agrees. He says: “The reception we received for the overall concept and the integration with Gallagher’s Cardax system was very positive. The benefit for access control managers is that they can get online control for many more doors in a cost efficient way, without impacting the access control system they already have in place.”

“Gallagher’s IP system architecture makes it an ideal system to support Aperio. Gallagher saw the potential of creating significant security manager efficiencies through Aperio – the solution gives them the opportunity to address doors they would not typically be able to do today.”
