“This partnership between Assa Abloy and S2 Security will benefit end-users by permitting them to utilize locks that integrate into an S2 access control platform without the need for a separate proprietary software package,” said Martin Huddart, vice-president of electronic access control for Assa Abloy door security solutions.

The Profile Series v.S2 and Passport 1000 P.2 locksets utilize open-standard 802.11 b/g WiFi technology which allows facilities to leverage their existing wireless network or build a network with standard off-the-shelf products. Both locksets are available in mortise lock, cylindrical lock and exit device configurations.

The v.S2 is operated with a Prox reader and optional keypad, while the Passport P.2 works with magstripe cards. Both locks provide centrally managed control without many of the costs, labor and infrastructure upgrades associated with a traditional hardwired system.

S2 Security offers industry standard IP-based S2 NetBox software in a solid state form factor. There are no moving parts in an S2 NetBox system – it will run unattended for years, making it perfect for all facilities where IT staff is unavailable or overburdened.

S2 Enterprise offers the S2 NetBox software suite to applications that require capacity and throughput to manage even the largest campus or global installations.

S2 Security’s S2 NetBox and S2 Enterprise products are advanced network appliances that implement integrated physical security for facilities of any scale.  The S2 NetBox product only requires a web browser.
