Issue 1 April 2022

Welcome to Sentinel!

We’re excited to deliver our first edition of Sentinel, the quarterly newsletter for security professionals dedicated to safeguarding facilities and the people and assets within their walls. Sentinel is where we’ll share customer application stories, product technical spotlights, and insights relevant to the industries you serve with ASSA ABLOY Door Security Solutions. We’ve designed Sentinel to be a quick read, out of respect for your busy day. We hope you enjoy it!

In this inaugural edition, we explore why a leading private secondary school in a picturesque Connecticut town implemented IN120 Wi-Fi locks across campus to improve flexibility, security and privacy for students and staff. ASSA ABLOY’s Ron Baer shares his perspective on evolving security requirements for K-12 learning environments and how electronic access control is becoming not only increasingly critical but also more practical. Our product Tech Spotlight this month points you to a powerful resource on wireless access control. And you’ll have the chance to meet Peter Boriskin, CTO for ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions Americas.

Thank you for your continued interest in ASSA ABLOY solutions and products, and your valuable input in helping us improve them. We’re also interested in your feedback about Sentinel and suggestions for relevant topics to include in future editions.
