CBORD, ASSA ABLOY integrate locks and software

Thursday, June 14, 2012

The CBORD Group Inc. and ASSA ABLOY announced integration between CBORD’s CS Access access control software solution and IP-enabled locks from ASSA ABLOY Group brands SARGENT and Corbin Russwin. With a variety of WiFi and Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) models available, these locks are designed to fit a broad range of security needs for campuses and facilities.

ASSA ABLOY’s range of IP-enabled locks includes SARGENT Passport 1000 and Profile Series, as well as Corbin Russwin Access 700 and Access 800 locks. The locks offer universities a combination of security and straightforward, cost-effective installation. WiFi locks enable access control in locations where it would be difficult or cost-prohibitive to install wired locks, while PoE locks utilize existing network infrastructure for both lock power and secure access data.

“The WiFi locks have been a great fit in our Athletics department,” says James Garcia, manager of Maintenance and Construction Services at the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor. “Our students and coaches love the convenience of not having to check out keys. The locks give us greater security than metal keys, they let us track who goes in and out of the locker rooms, and they are easy to install on surfaces where it is difficult to run cable.”

Through integration with CS Access, the locks can be monitored and managed from within the CS Access application—there is no need for system administrators to switch between multiple software systems or user interfaces. [end]

Specifically designed for security, ease of use and cost savings, Avail offers robust security measures while reducing expense and complexity for the university. An ideal fit for small and mid-sized access control implementations, Avail is designed to simplify access management by eliminating the need for software installations or server maintenance.
