Identiv Announces Wireless High-Security Access Control with Hirsch Velocity and ASSA ABLOY Aperio Wireless Lock Integration

Hirsch Velocity Software Security Management System Now Integrates with Aperio Wireless Lock Technology, Increasing Security Quickly, Easily, and Affordably

FREMONT, Calif., June 12, 2018Identiv, Inc. (Nasdaq: INVE) today announced the integration of the company’s award-winning Hirsch Velocity Software security management system with ASSA ABLOY’s Aperio® wireless lock technology. Aperio is a global platform that uses local, wireless communications between a lock and hub to connect to an access control system, eliminating the greatest cost and inconvenience of traditional access control — wiring at the door — and adding security to doors quickly, easily, and affordably. By integrating with the latest Hirsch Velocity Software, Aperio capabilities are expanded to include the best-of-breed features and benefits of the Velocity system. Small businesses no longer need to trade off price versus feature set, and enterprises no longer need to worry about the ability of initial deployments to scale seamlessly across a global enterprise.

Hirsch Velocity 3.7 delivers unsurpassed security, interoperability, backwards compatibility, and the ability to expand to accommodate evolving security, business, and facility needs. Hirsch Velocity manages access control and security operations in hundreds of different facilities, from single high security rooms to multi-building, multi-location campuses. Facility personnel can control doors, gates, turnstiles, elevators, and other building equipment, monitor users as they move around a facility, prevent unwanted access, maintain compliance, and provide a robust audit trail.

“Wireless doors are meant to fix a number of design and environmental issues that challenge physical access systems,” said Martin Huddart, President, Access and Egress Hardware Group, ASSA ABLOY Americas. “By integrating with Hirsch Velocity, ASSA ABLOY’s Aperio wireless lock system benefits from the entire suite of leading-edge Velocity features, including the flexibility to grow campus size, monitor door statuses in real-time, and manage traffic based on threat levels.”

The Aperio wireless lock system is tightly integrated with Velocity, giving users unmatched capabilities not achievable until now. With access to a full feature-set typically only available with wired lock systems, the integration allows for the most secure and advanced configuration options. By combining the power and cost-effectiveness of Hirsch Mx-1 Controllers, Velocity’s configuration and management options, and the flexibility of the Aperio wireless lock system, Identiv is able to provide users and integrators with even greater capabilities and design options at industry-leading price points.

“Whether maximum flexibility and scalability is a requirement, or you simply need to secure a few doors, our Hirsch Velocity Software integration with Aperio wireless lock technology is the perfect solution,” said Sam Tuthill, Identiv Senior Product Manager. “Customers can be confident that they have the world’s most secure facilities with our new, responsive, feature-rich platform. The solution is supported out-of-the-box and extends the reach of Velocity security management systems to schools, stadiums, cities, and offices without compromising secure monitoring or control.”

Aperio wireless lock technology offers the same real-time communication as traditional access control without the necessity of wiring the door. Aperio technology reduces the cost and inconvenience of wired systems without the hassle of complex site surveys. It utilizes local, encrypted, wireless communication between the lock and a communications hub to connect to an online electronic access control system. This offers facilities an easy, affordable way to expand the reach of existing systems, secure additional openings, or add physical access control to historical buildings and facilities with building materials not suitable for standard wiring.

The solution will be available from Identiv starting July 2, 2018. To learn more about Identiv’s Aperio Wireless Lock Integration with Hirsch Velocity, visit or contact
