Aperio Offline access control doors

Aperio Offline access controlAperio™ Offline access control doors now allow access control system manufacturers (OEMs) and system integrators to offer even more favourably priced solutions, thus creating a competitive advantage for themselves. All they need to do is integrate Aperio™ components into their system, an easy task.

Aperio™ Offline is particularly suitable for doors which cannot be wired, are used very little or are a distance away from other doors. Very easy to install, an Aperio™ Offline cylinder or escutcheon is mounted onto the door and then integrated into the access control system. Access authorisations are saved onto existing RFID user cards or transponders. Doors are all managed using the same access control system, whether they feature Aperio™ Offline or Online. Users receive new or modified access authorisations from a central point.

One special feature in Aperio™ Offline is its status message capability used to indicate low battery status or a jammed lock and transmit other door signals to the access control system via the cards or transponders. This allows system maintenance to rectify faults or replace batteries within a short space of time. Lost user cards and transponders can be cancelled by placing them on a blacklist or become automatically invalid after a specific period of time. Able to support up to 16 time schedules, Aperio™ Offline also offers a permanently open mode (office mode) and door status change (toggle mode).

For customers or end-users, the greatest advantage lies in the fact that they can now choose the right access control system for every door scenario. Regardless of whether the door is Aperio™ Online or Offline, both can be administered using the same access control system.

Aperio™ Offline cylinders or escutcheons can also be easily used for Aperio™ Online if operators wish to integrate a door into an online system at a later date. In such a case, the door is incorporated into the access control system via a wireless communications hub, thus providing a favourably priced, non-wired, online solution.


We needed a CCTV system installed in our business premises. Zimcos AVS not only produced the lowest quotation but also specified higher end products than the other two competitors we had quote for the job.
Installation was carried out quickly and professionally, time was taken to show us how to use the system both at the terminal and via our mobile phones and computers.
When we had issues with our dynamic IP address Zimcos AVS knew of the problem before we did because of their attention to detail and great aftercare, and the next day came in to resolve issues and again setup all the external devices to veiw the system remotely.
We have since had Zimcos AVS back again to quote for a door entry system and these works will be underway soon. It is a relief to find nice honest hardworking people who do not try and pass off faults once the job is completed even if the fault is caused by the internet provider they still endevour to find a solution.
I will continue to use and recommend Zimcos AVS to other people.
