The ASSA ABLOY IP Aperio (AH40) Hub allows for up to 64 Aperio locksets to communicate to an Aperio Hub via a 2.4 GHz signal. Prior to installing the Aperio IP Hub within Access It! , 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. This information is displayed in the Aperio Programming Application.

For more information on the Aperio Programming Application, please contact (800) 810-WIRE.

The Aperio IP Hub makes use of an OEM Code which must match that of Access It!. Hubs purchased through ACRE are already set accordingly.

Hardware Configuration

The Aperio Hub communicates via TCP/IP to the LP controller over the default TCP port 5000.

Software Configuration

  1. Launch Access It! 
  2. From the Hardware menu, select SCPs
  3. Edit the LP controller that will communicate to the Aperio AH40 Hub
  4. Under either the port 4 or port 5 protocol, select Aperio
  5. Enter the TCP port used by the hub
    Default is TCP port 5000
  6. Click Save
  7. Expand SCPs
  8. Expand the SCP the Aperio Hub is wired under
  9. Select SIO’s
  10. Edit the next available uninstalled SIO
  11. Check the box Device Installed
  12. Set the Model to Aperio IP Hub AH40
  13. Enter the IP address of the AH40 Hub
  14. Enter the Hub ID (optional)
    If the ID is omitted, the SCP will locate the hub by just IP address. By including the device ID, the SCP will authenticate both IP and ID prior to establishing communication
  15. Select the Options tab
  16. Set the Number of Readers accordingly
  17. Click Save

Reader Configuration

  1. Launch Access It! 
  2. From the Hardware menu, select Installed Readers
  3. Edit the first installed Aperio reader
  4. Enter the 6 digit hex value of the readers device ID into the Aperio device field
    The ID can be found in the Aperio Programming application under the Lock/Sensor Column.
  5. Click Save
  6. Repeat steps 2-4 as needed for remaining Aperio readers


Once the SIO has been installed and reader ID assigned, the reader can be configured and assigned to access levels in the exact same manner as as a traditional Mercury-based reader.
