HI-O Technology Enables Proactive Maintenance ASSA ABLOY will be showcasing its Hi-O (Highly Intelligent Opening) technology for electronic door components at this year’s IFSEC exhibition, a future-proof system that provides advanced diagnostic door information. Hi-O helps to simplify door installation, service and maintenance, thanks to its proactive maintenance technology and plug and play installation. By building intelligence into each device instead of a centralised logic unit, Hi-O technology allows the operational status of the door opening to be readily communicated, enabling planned servicing and predictive maintenance. This advanced feature enables the replacement of malfunctioning components before they breakdown, pre-empting costly reactive repairs and helping to create a more secure environment. In addition, Hi-O’s plug and play installation makes set-up easy and cost effective. When connected, the new device automatically discovers other network components and starts sharing information, simplifying system updates and expansion. Matt Thomas, Managing Director of ASSA ABLOY Access Control, said: “We’re very excited to be displaying our Hi-O communication platform technology at this year’s exhibition. The intelligence that Hi-O provides to electromechanical components is unrivalled, allowing devices to provide statistics and information, enabling advanced diagnostic functioning.” Hi-O uses a CAN data communication network, allowing connected devices to share and exchange encrypted information.
