Nedap N.V. Security Management has realised a seamless integration of Offline cylinders in its access control system, in corporation with Assa Abloy. The first "wireless online" solution has been implemented at Mürdter Metall- und Kunststoffverarbeitung GmbH.
"Mürdter Metall- und Kunststoffverarbeitung" is active in the automotive industry as a manufacturer of plastic and metal mouldings. Mürdter is situated at an industrial park, which is freely accessible. For this reason the security of the Mürdter buildings has to be done attentively and accurately.
For Mürdter, the most important reason to choose for AEOS as its access control system is the possibility to integrate wireless locks. The outer perimeters of the Mürdter buildings are connected to the online access control system. AEOS offers multiple possibilities to control and secure the online doors. However, for some of the doors at the inside of the building Mürdter wanted straight forward access control without additional security measures, and also without cabling. Either mechanical or off-line locks weren't an option for Mürdter because they wanted to be able to monitor the inner doors.
With the Aperio Wireless Locks from Assa Abloy, the inside doors can be connected to the online access control system AEOS, without having to cable every door lock. Management and control of the locks can be done in AEOS. It is obvious that a lot of cost savings can be realised since the authorisations and access rights only have to be issued and configured in AEOS and no duplicate databases are necessary.
If an employee now offers his access badge at the wireless Aperio lock (available in Escutcheon or Cylinder) the online system verifies the authorisation and if the person has been authorised, access is granted. The other way around, if a persons' badge is blocked in AEOS, this is directly communicated to the wireless lock via the network and the persons' access badge is both denied at the online doors and the doors with the wireless locks.
