ASSA ABLOY Announces Integration of Aperio™ Wireless Technology with Mircom TX3 System

NEW HAVEN, Connecticut, October 16, 2013 – ASSA ABLOY, the global leader in door opening solutions, announced the integration of their Aperio™ wireless lock technology with the TX3 system from Mircom Group Companies, a North American designer and manufacturer of fire detection and alarm, voice evacuation and communications systems.

The Aperio integration offers Mircom customers an easy, affordable way to extend their existing TX3 systems to more openings. Aperio is a global wireless platform available across a broad range of locking hardware from ASSA ABLOY Group brands, offering the flexibility to address a variety of applications throughout any facility.

Mircom’s TX3 is a unified solution providing physical and logical access, internal building communications and property management administration tools. The IT-centric platform reduces the administrative burden of the property management by managing all building needs from a central location. TX3 Community, a unique property management solution, allows occupants to reserve visitor parking, amenity bookings, make directory changes and a variety of other requests, all from the comfort of their own suite. This layered approach of technologies enhances the occupant experience integrating wireless networked locksets, intercom, fire annunciation, social media and more.

“The benefits of Aperio enhance our existing systems without additional wiring during a retrofit or new installation and allows us the capability to provide a very efficient solution to our customers,” stated David Ito, Product Manager, Communication and Security, Mircom.  “The Mircom and Aperio system becomes a cost-effective approach to enhancing the capabilities of our legacy access control systems.”

“By combining Mircom’s market expertise in fire safety and communications with our award-winning Aperio technology, end-users will benefit from a complete access control solution,” stated Martin Huddart, President Access and Egress Hardware Group, ASSA ABLOY Americas. “This partnership underscores both companies’ commitments to provide end-users with easy, flexible access control for the varied requirements of today’s facilities.”

Aperio is a global wireless platform that allows you to expand your access control footprint – quickly, easily, and affordably. Available across a broad range of locking hardware from ASSA ABLOY Group brands, Aperio provides the flexibility to address many applications throughout any facility.
