The cost savings with wireless battery powered access control

Cabled access control doors are expensive: installation requires extensive wiring, and powering the locks needs a permanent connection to the mains.

As a result, only doors with very high security requirements are incorporated into most access control systems—other mechanical doors with keys are often neither monitored nor controlled.

Security managers upgrading to electronic access control are faced with a choice between two kinds of device:

1. The first type incorporates a magnetic lock paired with an RFID reader. Both the magnets in these standard wired locks and the reader are powered by electricity, via a connection to the mains.

2. A second type of lock — a type that includes the ASSA ABLOY Aperio® range — is powered by a lithium ion battery. Wireless locks with RFID readers “wake up” only when prompted by a user credential. They are not connected to the mains, and do not remain permanently under power when inactive.
