Aperio Gallagher Integrated Product

The high-level integration between Gallagher and Aperio online readers delivers cost-effective, electronic, wirefree access control. It's an ideal alternative to keyed doors for customers that require some level of security but cannot justify the cost of a fully wired and monitored door, or customers who do not require door status monitoring or access mode changes.
