Aiphone Expands Access Control Portfolio with AC Nio Software Platform

Published: September 10, 2023

Aiphone, an international manufacturer of intercom and security communication products, has expanded its new line of access control solutions with the introduction of AC Nio, its access control management software.

With AC Nio, Aiphone says customers get access to an easy-to-use and customizable dashboard that provides the tools needed to manage daily access control credentials, run reports, set schedules, and program the AC Series access control solution.

The AC Nio Software Platform features widgets, shortcuts, drag-and-drop functionality, and graphics to simplify managing the AC Series. An advanced scripting engine enables users to automate access control applications with unlimited customizations, while flexible permission capabilities support thousands of doors across multiple locations, according to the company. AC Nio also features partition access and privileges, allowing for customizable administrator permissions, allowing an administrator to define who can manage specific doors, high-profile card holders, or special schedules.

“With the launch of our AC Series, we recognized it was important to develop a software management tool that would be easy to use but also offered the same high level of functionality that our customers have come to expect from Aiphone,” said Brad Kamcheff, marketing manager for Aiphone Corporation. “The AC Nio achieves just that, putting the power to manage our access control system and other security systems in our customers hands with a modern software platform that is fully customizable and integrates with other solutions.”

Additional AC Nio features include:

  • Notification Management: End users can customize which notifications they receive based on predefined criteria or notification type. This also includes the ability to customize bulk notifications sent to administrator groups. This could include alerting a school resource officer and principal that a secure door did not fully close.
  • Active Directory Integration: AC Nio integrates using lightweight directory access protocol (LDAP), enabling quick access to user information. With LDAP integration, users can be given access to doors and elevators. User permissions are also continuously synced through the Active Directory server.

AC Nio offers multiple licensing options based on capacity levels that can fit a variety of needs, including managing doors, elevators, and surveillance cameras.
