Software House’s C·CURE 9000 integrates with ASSA ABLOY IP Locks

Westford, MA – January 23, 2012 – Software House, part of Tyco Security Products, today announced the launch of the integration of its C·CURE 9000 security and event management solution with IP-enabled Wi-Fi and Power over Ethernet (PoE) locks from ASSA ABLOY Group brands SARGENT and CORBIN RUSSWIN.

"Wireless and PoE locks significantly reduce the cost of bringing electronic security deeper inside dorm buildings, offices, hospitals and other sites," said Warren Brown, Vice President of Product Management for Tyco Security Products.  "Rather than carrying a bulky key ring, students, employees and administrators can now use one card throughout the buildings they need access to. At the same time, when an incident occurs, administrators get the added visibility wireless locks provide on who really accessed important locations and when."

The ASSA ABLOY integration includes the SARGENT Profile Series v.S1 and v.S2 locks, SARGENT Passport 1000 P1 and P2 locks, along with CORBIN RUSSWIN’s Access 700 PIP1 and PWI1 and Access 800 WI1 IP-enabled locks. These locks simplify installation and reduce installation costs by utilizing existing ethernet and Wi-Fi networks to communicate with the C·CURE 9000 server. ASSA ABLOY’s Wi-Fi and PoE locks are available in cylindrical lock, mortise lock and exit device configurations.

"ASSA ABLOY is dedicated to providing solutions that address end-user security needs, including electronic locking platforms that operate with existing building management software systems," said Martin Huddart, Vice President of Electronic Technologies for ASSA ABLOY Americas. "Software House believes, as we do, in empowering the end-user by providing powerful and easy-to-implement IP-based security technologies. This partnership enhances the ability of end-users to expand their access control systems from the perimeter door to the interior of the building."

Software House and ASSA ABLOY have worked closely to fully test and certify the integration, giving security directors the confidence that the integration will give them the functionality they need with up to 150,000 users and 1,280 wireless locks per C·CURE 9000 server.  "At Software House, we are committed to working closely with our partners like ASSA ABLOY to ensure our integrations work the way our customers want and at the scale they need for large sites like universities, corporations and hospitals," said Mr. Brown. "The testing and collaboration with ASSA ABLOY that went into this integration are just further evidence of the strength of our commitment."

The ASSA ABLOY integration driver and locksets are available from Software House's North American network of Certified Integrators.
