Wireless Electronic Locks
A recent report by IFSEC suggested that in 10 years’ time most internal locks in business and public buildings will be wireless. There’s even a trend for wireless locks in private homes. Wireless locks can be easily installed to replace traditional key locks (it can be as easy as replacing a cylinder) and installation is much less onerous as they use battery power and require no amendments to the door structure. Where there are undoubtedly issues to be overcome with wireless locks most are perception that it is an expensive option but when you look at the total cost of ownership, the savings can be substantial. For example, in a recent installation of over 1000 locks in a student accommodation block they estimated that the annual savings would be approximately 72% over the wired system when comparing energy use and maintenance together.

This lock will fit most server cabinets and gives you the audit trail. All these locks can easily be integrated with your CCTV system to provide additional verification of who accessed the door without and in the event of failed access who tried to access the door with the necessary credentials.
In combination with online readers / doors it is possible to install additional doors with Aperio Offline devices – all access rights are stored on RFID credentials via the access control system. This is useful for e.g riser cupboards, safes or other portable devices which are not ever or permanently in the range of the online wireless signal.
