Aperio offers wide range of battery-powered devices, so H-Farm can choose the precise wireless lock for every application

To meet their ever changing needs for security and access, H-Farm a busy Italian start-up support company, recently selected a combination of Aperio handles, security locks and escutcheons, each easy to retrofit, so day-to-day work at their busy offices would not be disrupted by intrusive installation.

So far, 40 Aperio Online H100 wireless door handles, 6 Aperio Online L100 wireless locks and 4 Aperio Online E100 wireless escutcheons have been fitted across multiple H-Farm locations in northern Italy.

All Aperio battery-powered locks are wireless, so there are no cabling runs to H-Farm’s doors. Because Aperio offers wide range of battery-powered devices, H-Farm can choose the precise wireless lock for every application: the L100 lock protects doors with high security demands; robust H100 handles suit interior doors with high traffic.

H-Farm interior doors are mostly secured with the new Aperio H100 wireless handle, which packs the flexibility and affordability of Aperio wireless access control into a slim, cleverly designed door handle. Its standard battery slots inside the handle, ensuring a minimal footprint. Assa Abloy’s device design team incorporated electronics into the handle lever on the outside of the door, without jeopardising security.

Design has become a major feature of the H100’s appeal. H-Farm wanted devices to blend with the contemporary architecture of their new €101m H-Campus development. “Aperio wireless access control hardware is solid, nice looking and perfectly fits our environment — solving our access problem,” says Alberto Aldrigo at H-Farm.

The H100 and other Aperio devices are easy to install; for the H100, basically two screws complete the job. Going forward, this will enable H-Farm to quickly bring new buildings into the same access system as they expand to fresh locations. The H100 fits around 90% of target doors with two main models: one for left-handled doors, the other right-handed.

“The Aperio H100 also enables customers to add more doors to their access control solution because the cost per door is lower,” says Tania Amico, Aperio Sales Manager at Assa Abloy Italy.

The open architecture underpinning Aperio devices enabled easy online integration with their existing Axis system via Prysm Appcontrol. Remote operation from a single, central software interface is seamless, which makes administering the system easy.

“The Prysm Appcontrol software utilises the integration Axis completed with Aperio,” says Piergianni Marana, Key Account Manager at Axis. “And the Axis A1001 Door Controller is based on open hardware, which makes installing and configuring an Aperio wireless lock easy and seamless.”
