ASSA ABLOY celebrates double awards success at IFSEC


ASSA ABLOY, the global leader in door opening solutions, is celebrating after winning two awards at this year’s IFSEC Security Industry Awards.

Aperio™, ASSA ABLOY’s advanced wireless locking technology received the award for Integrated Security Product of the Year, whilst CLIQ™ Remote took home the honours for Access Control Product of the Year.

The awards, run in association with the British Security Industry Association (BSIA), were presented at a gala ceremony during the week of IFSEC and recognise products and technological advancements that have played a major part in the security industry over the past 12 months.

Commenting on ASSA ABLOY’s award’s success, Paul Browne, Business Development Director for ASSA ABLOY UK, said: “We were extremely proud that as a group we were nominated for four awards, but to win two is an outstanding achievement.

“The IFSEC awards have continually evolved with the changing landscape of security, introducing new categories and recognising truly innovative products and solutions, we were therefore very pleased that two of our most innovative technologies were recipients of such a prestigious accolade.

“Plus, the publicity generated by these awards should be beneficial for both our customers and Aperio™ Partners, helping to raise the profile of Aperio™ and CLIQ™ Remote.”

Ideal for Facility or Security Managers experiencing costly and time-consuming key control problems, Aperio™ has been designed to upgrade mechanically locked doors and wirelessly connect them to existing online access control systems, with minimal modification to doors and premises.

This provides end-users in a variety of markets with a simple and intelligent way of upgrading the controllability and security level of their premises. Plus, Wiegand and iClass connectivity have recently been added to the Aperio™ offering, allowing Aperio™ to connect with almost all access control systems in the marketplace.

The now award-winning CLIQ™ Remote is the very latest in user-friendly, web-based security management.

Part of the CLIQ™ Protec range, CLIQ™ Remote is designed for larger master key suites or remote sites, enabling the commissioning, programming and full administration of security management centrally via web-based software, often eliminating the need to service locks on site.

The software, which automates key security, allows for additional data, such as valid times and authorisations, to be written to keys remotely and automatically updates and records audit trails
