The challenge

Dynamic campus

H-Farm S.p.A. is one of Italy’s most innovative companies, with a strong track record supporting entrepreneurship and creative start-ups. They focus on digital transformation and new business models for education and training.

H-Farm sought access control to extend their existing Axis system via the AXIS A1001 Network Door Controller.

‏‏‎

Key requirements included:

  • a system to control access to multiple, dispersed access points without wiring
  • the ability to manage rapid turnover of site users without adding complexity
  • door devices to blend with contemporary architecture at their €101m H-Campus
  • a solution that is easy to retrofit without disrupting day-to-day work at H-Farm

The solution

Device portfolio

H-Farm selected a combination of Aperio handles, security locks and escutcheons to upgrade its Axis system. Battery-powered Aperio devices are all wireless, so no cabling runs to H-Farm’s doors.

H-Farm chose door devices tailored to every application: the L100 lock protects security doors; robust H100 handles suit interior doors with high traffic.

Rights management

Open architecture underpinning Aperio technology enables simple online integration via PRYSM AppControl. Remote operation from a single interface is seamless, which makes administering the system simple.

One system makes it easy to issue and revoke access rights for any door or user. Further extending access control to more sites at this dynamic business will be straightforward with Aperio.

Aperio wireless access control hardware is solid, nice looking and perfectly fits our environment — solving our access problem.
