Integrated access control system central to creating connected environment for Paris media HQ

A new Paris media headquarters for Canal+ has had a suite of connected ASSA ABLOY access control devices installed to enable a connected smart building environment.

ASSAABLOY-Aperio-Canal+-23The new access control solution for the Canal+ building filters access to and through all technical areas, for 1,200 employees, as well as visitors and contractors. High level protection is required for multiple types of door, internal openings and external or emergency exits.

To create a connected smart building, the company prioritised access control devices designed to work with the Genetec Synergis platform. Administrators can issue, amend and withdraw access for individuals from a centralised platform, while users simply require one credential that works across sites.

Aperio and ABLOY locks are designed to connect with the smart building system to prevent unauthorised intrusion into sensitive areas.

“Fast-growing demand for integrated building systems makes it critical for hardware suppliers to offer a range of compatible access solutions,” explains Thomas Schulz, Product Marketing Director at ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions EMEIA.

“ASSA ABLOY’s broad competence and a vast range of connectable access control solutions enables us to match devices to many applications, at almost any opening and in all areas of a building.”

Sustainable access control

High performance in both security and sustainability were required for the media HQ. Particular care was taken to green interior and exterior spaces — as well as to indoor air quality and exposure to natural light — in order to reduce the building’s energy consumption.

Choosing the Aperio H100 Wireless Electronic Handle over wired locking devices contributed to improving energy efficiency. Like every Aperio lock, an H100 is fitted without wiring, which saves power during installation. The electronic handle works without mains power, consuming less energy than a traditional wired door lock according to the manufacturer.
