Abloy UK unveils Incedo access control ecosystem for business applications

24 June 2020

ABLOY UK has launched the Incedo access control system for SMEs. This universal access control ecosystem incorporates software and hardware into a single management platform.

Incedo is an access control system that can adapt to a business’ individual security needs. Businesses can benefit from one system that links all security solutions a building may have and integrates them into one easy-to-manage set-up.

Access control regulates how people can enter and exit a building and can offer insights into the movements of staff and contractors. Incedo includes a personalised interface that combines hardware with a cloud-based system for a high level of security and operational benefits, including access management and audit trails.

As well as integrating existing systems, Incedo can also adapt to work with future hardware if a business decides to invest in new security equipment, which includes both Abloy UK and third party products. This allows the system to easily adapt with time, saving businesses having to reinvest in a new operating system in the future.

Businesses are increasingly understanding that a locking solution can offer far more than just a method of securing a building. The impact of a lost or stolen mechanical key is that the room or building is no longer secure. With Incedo, a lost or stolen key can be revoked via the management platform, thereby removing all threats of unauthorised access.

Flexibility and fluidity

Access control offers the flexibility and fluidity that businesses need. When employees or contractors require access to areas of a building, Incedo delivers connectivity and simplicity to manage the movement of people. The purpose is to create safe surroundings and protect people and goods within the workplace.

Incedo benefits everyone, from installers right through to end users. Facilities managers can enjoy increased control of the premises and detailed audit trails of employees’ movements. The management software will provide information on who, when and where an area is accessed in real-time.

End users will have an individually programmed keypad access code or card reader that will provide access to all areas they are authorised to enter. In addition, those that require ever-changing access rights can have increased access granted in a matter of minutes. This can be provided with a timed access feature. 

Incedo is a future-proofed solution. With scaling capabilities, more individuals and access points can be added to the system by system integrators. The software also integrates with all security elements of the host business, including CCTV, to combine the data into one place rather than in multiple systems. Incedo can update and adapt when new hardware is introduced.
