The newest device in the Aperio wireless access control portfolio spent 2018 collecting awards — for innovation, operation and design. The Aperio H100 electronic handle received Detektor International’s Innovative Achievement Award and Intersec’s Access Control Product of the Year.
The new Aperio H100 packs the power, flexibility and functionality of wireless access control into a simple door handle. With easy retrofitting to almost any interior door, broad RFID compatibility via an inbuilt credential reader, and simple integration with third-party access systems, the H100 handle makes it cost-effective to extend your access control to many more internal doors. No wiring is needed, and the H100 works with an online access control system or offline.
A standard battery fits inside the H100’s slim handle, ensuring a minimal footprint and a discreet look suited to any door style. “The new H100’s stylish and robust design has proven a perfect fit for high-traffic office and facility doors,” says Murtaza Husaini, ASSA ABLOY Marketing Director for the Middle East, where Intersec named the Aperio H100 their Access Control Product of the Year. “You still use the existing mechanical cylinder; the handle adds powerful access control functionality without wires — simply.”
In recognizing the H100’s Innovation Achievement in ID and Access Control, the Detektor International jury also commented: “Smooth and smart — the Aperio H100 access control door handle is a brilliant example of excellent product design.”
“We are especially thrilled the jury recognized the design,” says Magnus Bæckström, Aperio Unit Manager at ASSA ABLOY EMEA, who accepted Detektor’s award during the SECTECH Expo. “It benefits from our digital handle expertise, building on the successful Code Handle Door device.”
“This is just one innovative new product, but also part of a much broader approach you will increasingly see from ASSA ABLOY Group designs.”
The new Aperio H100 broadens the range of Aperio wireless access control devices. The portfolio already includes online and offline cylinders (C100) and escutcheons (E100); an online and offline security lock (L100); and a wireless lock for data centre storage (KS100), to integrate it into the same access control system as doors.
