The high-level integration between Gallagher and Aperio online readers delivers cost-effective, electronic, wirefree access control. It's an ideal alternative to keyed doors for customers that require some level of security but cannot justify the cost of a fully wired and monitored door, or customers who do not require door status monitoring or access mode changes.
The Aperio integration:
- Eliminates the need for keys and key management
- Removes double data entry and dual system management on site
- Re-uses existing cardholder MIFARE Classic Smart Cards to provide access to Gallagher readers and Aperio wireless readers
- One-pass encoding of Gallagher and Aperio data on MIFARE Classic Smart Cards directly from Command Centre
- Eliminates the need for operator training and use of two systems
- Allows for existing MIFARE class cards to be automatically used on Aperio doors when Aperio is integrated with Command Centre.
