ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions today announced the integration of its IP-enabled PoE (Power over Ethernet) and Intelligent WiFi access control locks with Genea Access Control, a leader in cloud-based access control software.
“Genea is excited to partner with ASSA ABLOY. By leveraging the power of Genea’s cloud-based access control with ASSA ABLOY’s wireless door locks, we can now provide our partners, IT, and security teams with a seamless and convenient way to control access to their facilities,” said Genea CEO Michael Wong. “Our powerful integration creates a comprehensive solution for modern building access management and is a significant step forward in our mission to revolutionize security.”
The 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 includes Intelligent WiFi 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.
IT and security teams can connect their ASSA ABLOY IP-enabled WiFi locks to Genea Access Control without running a single cable. Whether equipping one door or 100, the cloud-based solution helps hospitals, schools, enterprises, and more connect their security, wirelessly. Administrators can sync doors to video, visitor, and identity management systems through out-of-the-box integrations. Additionally, users can add access groups, create door schedules, and monitor hardware statuses right from a user-friendly, global dashboard.
“The integration of Genea Access Control with our IP-enabled locks makes it even easier to leverage the capabilities of the Genea platform,” stated Angelo Faenza, head of U.S. Digital Access Solutions, ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions Americas. “The ability to bring access control to more doors quickly and efficiently allows facilities to increase security and convenience using an innovative access control management system.”
