Wallace Collection has State-of-the-Art Aperio™ Security


ASSA ABLOY Access Control’s innovative Aperio™ locking solution has been installed and interfaced to the current Access System by Secure Access Technology Limited at the Wallace Collection in central London to secure its Conservation Department.

The Wallace Collection is a national museum in a Grade II Listed historic town house in the capital with over 25 rooms and galleries. The Conservation Department carries out specialist repair and conservation on works of art.

As part of an overall upgrade to the security of this dedicated area, ASSA ABLOY’s Aperio™ smart technology was recommended to enable wireless links to the existing access control system, without any need to modify the doors.

John Power, Head of Security at the Wallace Collection said: “Secure Access together with ASSA ABLOY Access Control demonstrated the advantages of Aperio™ and we were particularly impressed with its seamless integration into our existing security systems, negating the need for any additional software or duplication of card holder information or access rights.”

Specifically, the Aperio™ wireless locking solution allows free egress via the lock handle when required and the use of existing card credentials on additional online doors to provide real-time audits and instant updates of access restrictions through the existing access control system.

David Hodgkiss, Sales Manager of ASSA ABLOY Access Control, concluded: “The Wallace Collection contains unsurpassed collections of art and really needed a state of the art smart technology to secure the Conservation Department. Aperio™ is the perfect technology to enable this and also solve key management issues, without compromising on aesthetics or style.”
