The Medeco M100 unit is a wire-free, retrofit mortise, access control solution that uses wireless Aperio technology to communicate (IEEE 802.15.4) between the lock and an Aperio hub to provide real-time communication to the access control system. This simplifies installation, reducing costs and complexity compared to traditional access control to allow greater flexibility and accountability on interior facility doors. Communication occurs with the use of an Aperio hub. The hub is a compact ‘antenna’ which receives communication data such as iClass card serial number, tamper notification, door jamb, etc… from the Aperio cylinder and relays it to the EAC system. The hub is mounted within 50ft of the Aperio cylinder and is wired directly to the EAC control panel using either Wiegand or RS-485 protocol depending on the EAC system being used.. Up to eight Aperio M100 cylinders can be paired to a hub (dependent on the EAC system).

The Medeco M100 is ideal for interior doors where greater flexibility or accountability is required, but either the cost or complexity of traditional EAC components is prohibitive. The Medeco M100 eCylinder with Aperio™ technology provides a fast and economical way to upgrade interior doors to access control where greater accountability or access flexibility is required. The M100 is a simple cylinder replacement for an existing mortise-style mechanical cylinder and requires absolutely no wiring or alterations to the door, the frame, or the door hardware.  The M100 installs in minutes; completely revolutionizing access control.
