ASSA ABLOY Announces Partnership with Software House

April 5, 2010

ASSA ABLOY and Software House, part of Tyco Security Products, today announced that they have entered an integration partnership that will enable locks from ASSA ABLOY Group brands SARGENT and CORBIN RUSSWIN to operate on a Software House security management platform.

Under the partnership, SARGENT Profile Series and Passport 1000 Series, as well as CORBIN RUSSWIN Access 700 PWI1 and Access 800 WI1 IP-enabled locksets will integrate with the Software House C•CURE 9000 security and event management system. Facilities that use C•CURE 9000 can cost-effectively expand their online access control system by securing doors with wireless locksets from SARGENT or CORBIN RUSSWIN.

“ASSA ABLOY is dedicated to providing solutions that address end-user security needs, including electronic locking platforms that operate off existing building management software systems,” said Martin Huddart, vice president of electronic technologies for ASSA ABLOY Americas.

The WiFi-enabled locksets utilize open-standard 802.11 b/g WiFi technology. This non-proprietary technology allows facilities to leverage their existing wireless network or simply build a network with standard off-the-shelf products. All four WiFi locks are available in mortise lock, cylindrical lock, and exit device configurations.

ASSA ABLOY and Software House have targeted June 2010 to complete the integration of the WiFi-enabled locksets with Software House C•CURE 9000 security and event management system.
