ASSA ABLOY announced the integration of its IP-enabled PoE (Power over Ethernet) and WiFi access control locks with Viscount Systems’ open platform, web-based security management solution: Freedom Access Control.

The IP integration offers end-users more options for expanding their physical security system easily and affordably using IP-enabled locks from ASSA ABLOY Group brands CORBIN RUSSWIN and SARGENT. The IP-enabled range include locks that connect to a host system through an existing 802.11b/g/n WiFi network.

The range also includes IEEE 802.3af compliant Power over Ethernet (PoE) locks that connect to the Local Area Network (LAN) utilizing a single Ethernet cable for both power and data.

ASSA ABLOY and Viscount Systems make for excellent partners thanks to the shared philosophy and approach to leveraging IT infrastructure and avoiding expensive and proprietary panels. The partnership also means integrators now have a unique opportunity to offer an IT approach to access control to clients.

“When it comes to access control, Viscount Systems commits to making products that are both cyber secure and future-proof with the goal of protecting the end user and their investment” said Scott Sieracki, CEO of Viscount Systems.

“ASSA ABLOY has the same commitment to crafting products with robust security, upgradability and interoperability. It’s not only a very exciting partnership to combine our work into a total solution, but also a very natural partnership in terms of shared values and missions.”
