ASSA ABLOY’s commitment to partnerships in innovation has once again enabled the creation of a unique security solution. And the development came through the insights of its network of access control partners, collaborative integrators, and end users who seek out a trusted manufacturer partner. Last year, Star Asset Security, an industry expert in high-end integrated security systems, turned to ASSA ABLOY Door Security Solutions with a new demand it was seeing in the built environment: the need for an access control system that would work on shared assets such as lockers and desks, but with the caveat that the employee could select any locker or desk on any given day and continuously change their selection throughout the week.
These solutions include training programs from ASSA ABLOY Americas University, several emerging technologies including BIM software and augmented reality, and sustainability initiatives highlighting energy efficient solutions and a commitment to transparency. Adams Rite is debuting the new EX Series Exit Devices that offer sleek, flexible and installation-friendly solutions while maintaining a robust and secure design.
With the start of a new school year, it is an excellent opportunity for school districts to review their campus security. With students and staff returning to school, now is the time to review the performance of security and safety changes made over the summer. It also presents an opportunity to seek out and identify additional upgrades or modifications with the full knowledge of how the facility is being used. With this real-world stress test taking place as the first school bell tolls, ASSA ABLOY Door Security Solutions has compiled its list of resources for school districts.
Galaxy Control Systems has added to its already impressive list of partners by completing an integration with IP-enabled solutions from ASSA ABLOY. The combination of System Galaxy and WiFi and PoE locks from ASSA ABLOY Group brands Corbin Russwin and Sargent will allow end users and integrators to harness the power of these industry-leading solutions at reduced expense. ASSA ABLOY’s WiFi locks connect to System Galaxy through a facility’s 802.11b/g/n WiFi network, and the IEEE 802.3af compliant Power over Ethernet (PoE) locks connect to System Galaxy through the Local Area Network (LAN) utilizing a single Ethernet cable for both power and data.

Efficient, cost effective and beautiful building design requires everyone to be on the same page from the first day of planning. A misstep in the early stages means costly change orders, lost project time and potential compromises to building design and security components, including those that add to the feel, beauty and character of a building. To help combat these coordination challenges, ASSA ABLOY Openings Studio™, a plugin to the world’s most common Building Information Management (BIM) software, allows you to design openings, set standards for your future facility and keep everyone in the loop for the seamless integration of Door Security Solutions.
