ASSA ABLOY Access Control’s Aperio wireless locking technology has been installed at the headquarters of BMCE Bank in Casablanca, to provide an instant upgrade to an access control system, without compromising aesthetics.
BMCE Bank is one of the largest commercial banks in Morocco, with a network of 540 branches. As part of a complete overhaul of its headquarters security arrangements, ASSA ABLOY Access Control’s Aperio C100 wireless locking system was selected for 50 of its glass doors.
Easy to install, the Aperio escutcheon enabled a simple security upgrade from the mechanical systems in place to a sleek access control wireless locking solution.
With Aperio’s flexible design and ability to work with RS485 and Wiegand Interface, together with iClass, Mifare Plus and DesFire technology credentials, there was no issue with it instantly connecting to the existing online access control system at BMCE Bank, with minimal modification to doors and premises.
Says Chris Bone, ASSA ABLOY Vice President Access Control EMEA: “To have selected Aperio for such a prestigious building, where security is of paramount importance, is true testament to the abilities of this revolutionary technology.
“This installation really demonstrates how Aperio can provide end users in any market across the globe, with a simple and intelligent way of upgrading the controllability and security levels of their premises.
“And with its evolving connectivity and developments in RFID technology, its ability to connect with almost all access control systems is further evidence of how Aperio continues to evolve and play such a major part in the security industry.”
ASSA ABLOY Access Control worked alongside MAXXESS who provided an eFusion security management system and HikVision, which installed a 100 camera surveillance system, incorporating a hybrid recording solution.
The contract to implement the complete integrated system was awarded to CST Sécurité, a leading Moroccan security systems integrator.
