Turning Electric Locks Mobile – unveiling the ABLOY Keyless Access Controller

The new ABLOY Keyless Access Controller enables mobile access for a wide variety of security products. The Bluetooth®-connected controller allows organisations to make electric locks or other electronic door locking devices operable with a mobile app.

Abloy Oy and ASSA ABLOY Global Solutions announced their jointly developed, new ABLOY Keyless Access Controller. With the controller, businesses can upgrade their doors to be keyless: making most electric locks and other electronic door locking devices work with a digital key on a mobile app instead of a physical credential. The controller not only works with ABLOY products but also with hardware of any brand using compatible wiring.

The controller is an ideal solution that conceals the locking mechanism and manages access without a physical key. Relying on continuous power, this small device is optimally installed inside a cabinet or behind a door and is therefore difficult to manipulate from the outside.

“By developing and applying new technologies, we can enable a smoother, safer and a more connected world. We see a future where any door or hatch can be opened, locked and monitored from anywhere, in real time. Our Keyless Access Controller is a major leap,” said Jussi Ahvalo, Vice President, Abloy International.

“Keyless access management not only prevents downtime and reduces operational costs, but also minimises energy-consuming travel, making daily processes work smoothly. We want to help organisations move towards a keyless future and take secure, controlled steps forward,” said Simo Pikkarainen, Product & Software Director, ABLOY Critical Infrastructure, ASSA ABLOY Global Solutions.

Can be deployed to various electrically operated doors or gates

The controller is operated with the ABLOY mobile app on the user’s mobile phone over a Bluetooth® Low Energy connection. The device is compatible with numerous electric lock types, such as electromechanical, electric, magnetic, motor and cabinet locks but also with alarm systems, door strikes, latches, actuators as well as automatic or manual garage, sliding and roll-up doors, gates and lifts. Relying on a continuous power supply, the compact controller is designed to be installed inside a cabinet or behind a door.

The controller is the latest extension to the ABLOY portfolio of keyless access solutions for professional use. Used in combination with other locking products available, it brings more access management options to different operating environments.

The controller expands the solution range of two product families, tailored to the different needs of critical infrastructure on the one hand and more conventional business on the other:

  • The ABLOY BEAT controller is ideal in critical infrastructure protection in sectors such as water, energy, telecom, transportation and logistics.
  • The ABLOY CUMULUS controller is designed for commercial real estate and public spaces. These include parcel deliveries, cash-in-transit, office spaces and construction, for example.

The controller can be managed with ASSA ABLOY Global Solutions’ CIPE Manager, ABLOY OS INCEDO or by integrating with a third-party system. The solution offers well documented application programming interfaces (APIs) and mobile software development kits (SDKs) for easy integrations and partner solutions. The controller tracks usage and records opening and locking events automatically. The records can be accessed in the management system used by the organisation.

Both controller versions will become available in stages in selected markets globally by regional ABLOY Critical Infrastructure and ABLOY sales units respectively.
