The ASSA ABLOY Aperio 1:8 Hub allows for up to eight Aperio locksets to communicate to an Aperio Hub via a 2.4 GHz signal. Prior to installing the Aperio Hub within Access It! Universal, it must first be pre-programmed and have a lock associated to it using the Aperio Programming Application. The Aperio Hub must be running firmware allowing for Mercury protocol support.
