it is time to change your thinking about access control
wired, wireless and wire-free access control is now available as a single enterprise solution.
The PLAN Access Control System will redefine many of the traditional concepts and expectations set by the vast majority of one-size-fits-all systems.
Using the advanced features of the xPLAN V9.x software and our growing range of distributed intelligence door controllers (which includes the latest hybrid Aperio™ Gateway Controller) you can unleash the combined benefits offered by a fully-featured traditional hard-wired card reader and lock control solution, as well as the flexibility and agility of secure wireless battery-powered Aperio™ locksets and e-cylinders.
Aperio™ is a technology developed by Assa Abloy to complement the use of traditional electronic access control systems, by providing end users with a simple, intelligent way to enhance the controllability and security of their premises. This is achieved without the disruption and costs associated with dedicated direct cabling and provision of power to every door.
An Aperio™ Wireless Lockset or Cylinder is designed to serve as a combined card-reader and locking device, as well as providing a real-time link to the on- line processor unit. It is the xPLAN Aperio gateway controllers distributed around the site, that make all of the access decisions as each card is read.
The PLAN System also offers end users the option to control their doors using a ‘data-on-card’ off-line-integrated option - OLi - where the wireless concept is taken one stage further and the system becomes completely wire-free.
Because the Aperio™ OLi escutcheon locksets and e-cylinders are “wireless enabled” – there is a simple migration path from off-line data-on-card, to wireless-on-line should the need arise.
The PLAN system is the most cost effective, efficient and feature enriched solution which leverages the combined benefits of traditional wired wall readers with battery powered wireless on-line and wire free ‘off-line’ solutions.
All three concepts can be blended seamlessly and managed from a single software admin package which in turn can integrate with client business infrastructure (HR, AD, cashless, T&A etc.) and other security subsystems (such as Intruder Alarms and CCTV).
The PLAN system is distributed via a network of approved System Integrators who are trained and knowledgeable about the PLAN system and who share our commitment to providing excellent customer service.
