Makita secures access points in Slovakian premises with ASSA ABLOY’s Incedo

Makita has selected ASSA ABLOY’s Incedo platform to manage its electronic lock access points at a newly built commercial premises.

ASSAABLOY-MakitaIncedo-21At its new commercial premises in Banská Bystrica, Slovakia, power-tool manufacturer Makita stocks and distributes batteries, and runs wholesale supply logistics. The business searched for a single system to control and secure its access points for a range of devices and permissions — now and in the future – such as escape doors, entrances and interior doors.

“The diversity of access control devices available for the Incedo system was a decisive factor,” says Makita’s Richard Cimerman.

ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions’ Incedo platform connects security software and hardware within a single, seamless ecosystem, describes the vendor. The range of Incedo-enabled devices and door hardware convinced Makita — for this site and for future premises and refurbishments around Slovakia.

The new Banská Bystrica facility now has an Incedo system controlling access through main entrances, fire doors and emergency exit doors, as well as interior doors fitted with Aperio wireless electronic escutcheons. The Incedo Business software manages and monitors everything together from a single control panel, as well as filtering and restricting employee and visitor access to specific areas of the plant.

The modular, platform-based Incedo solution incorporates wired and wireless door locking devices from across the ASSA ABLOY range; card, token and secure mobile key credentials that can be used interchangeably; and a growing range of third-party security solutions. Should Makita upgrade to Incedo Plus management in the future, its own system could manage CCTV and alarms alongside access and door entry.

With Incedo software, Makita can switch between local and Cloud managed solutions whenever it chooses, while the system size is scalable to reflect changing requirements.
