Centrios Access Control Platform by ASSA ABLOY Debuts at ISC West 2024

Centrios, a brand and platform developed within ASSA ABLOY, features a secure app, web interface, and electronic locks and readers.

LAS VEGAS — Centrios, a new access control brand developed within ASSA ABLOY, debuted at ISC West 2024. The platform, designed for the North American small business market, includes a secure app, web interface, and electronic locks and readers.

“The small business market is about to undergo the type of transformation in digital access management that the residential market experienced between the early 2000s and now,” said Bryan Lieberman, General Manager, Centrios. “Small business owners are busy entrepreneurs who don’t have time to sort through the complexity of the current landscape of access management options. Our channel partners want to offer these business owners a solution that just works, is easy to sell, is well supported, and helps them grow their businesses. We listened very carefully to our customers and designed our business structure, the product, user interfaces, support tools, and even our sales strategy to help our customers make smarter decisions about access for their business faster and with confidence. Today, all that hard work comes to fruition with the launch of Centrios at ISC West.”

With Centrios, business operators can manage scheduled access and retrieve access reporting for employees and visitors across multiple physical sites from their phones or PCs. Systems users can also unlock or lock doors with the touch of a button, the company says. Centrios is a free system that offers businesses an upgrade path to enhanced features and capacities, such as the number of users, door devices, or scheduling capabilities.

Reportedly designed with channel partners and end-users in mind, the Free Plan includes management of up to five openings, 24/7 access for up to 10 users, and reporting features. The Select Plan enables up to 20 openings, 100 individuals, and custom scheduling and reporting. Neither plan requires a long-term commitment, and a system can be set up in seconds. The Centrios solution also features 24/7 North America-based customer support resources and a two-year electronics warranty.

Centrios software and hardware were designed in parallel so the user has the most seamless experience possible, according to a company press release. Centrios cylindrical locks are well-suited for exterior or interior openings such as front doors, back doors, storerooms, offices, and bathrooms. The smart reader is optimal for storefronts, employee entrances, gates, or automatic doors where it can be paired with new or legacy third-party electronic access control devices. The Centrios locks and smart reader can be installed in minutes and can be securely paired with the Centrios Mobile App in seconds via BLE.

Centrios also connects end users with locksmiths, integrators, and security professionals through the Centrios Partner Program. This program offers partners training content, end-user leads, and the ability to manage their own details for representation on the Centrios where-to-buy finder.

“Centrios is more than a lock, more than a smart reader, and more than an app,” Lieberman explains. “It’s a business designed from the ground up to serve the access needs of small and growing businesses. With this as our mission, we provide small businesses greater freedom and more time to focus on the activities that are important to them, especially our channel partners when it comes to growing and diversifying their businesses.”
