ADI and Mission 500 Exceed Fundraising Goal in Silent Auction to Benefit Title 1 School Children

Mission 500 News (image)

Atlanta, GA (April 2, 2020) – Students at Title One Schools and shelters across the country are the beneficiaries of much-needed school supplies as Mission 500 teamed with new angel sponsor, ADI Global Distribution, this past January for a Silent Auction charity event held at the College Football Hall of Fame in downtown Atlanta.

Looking to meet their goal of $15,000, the generosity of the silent auction participants, corporate donations from ADI, as well as ADI’s supplier partners, helped Mission 500 to far exceed expectations, and raise more than $45,000 for the Compassion Care Packs that will go to Title 1 School recipients. These Care Packs are crucial to help supply Title 1 schools with large concentrations of low-income students who receive supplemental funds with essential school supplies to assist in meeting student’s educational goals. ADI is a new angel sponsor with Mission 500 ($30k+ level).

We were very honored to sponsor and host this event. Teaming up with our supplier partners to raise funds to support Mission 500 was a great way to start our annual ADI North America Sales Kick Off meeting,” said Rob Aarnes, President of ADI Global Distribution. “As a leading distributor, we’re always look for ways to give back in the local communities we serve. And by partnering with Mission 500, we’re able to help mobilize resources to help students in need across the country.”

The event was held at the College Football Hall of Fame which opened in Atlanta in 2014. It’s a $68.5 million, 95,000 square foot, state-of-the-art tribute to 977 players, 211 coaches, and countless fans. Located in the heart of Atlanta’s sports, tourism and entertainment districts, the Chick-fil-A College Football Hall of Fame is steps away from the iconic Centennial Olympic Park and surrounded by other attractions including the World of Coca-Cola, the Georgia Aquarium and CNN Center.

The funds raised at the ADI event will also be used to host Care Pack Events across the country as well as help resource other significant Mission 500 initiatives which will benefit children attending Title 1 Schools or living in shelters.

Abloy launches mobile digital key and extremely weatherproof Bluetooth padlock

Abloy launches mobile digital key and extremely weatherproof Bluetooth padlock | #TpromoCom #Abloy #Lock #Security | Announced today, the new ABLOY® BEAT locking solution includes a novel digital key, a mobile app and an IP68-rated, weatherproof Bluetooth padlock. The future-proof solution is designed to boost operational efficiency while securing critical infrastructure, commercial institutions and industry sites. ABLOY BEAT is managed with the visual ABLOY® OS user interface.

Helsinki, Finland (March 17, 2020) – Finland-based security and locking solutions provider Abloy Oy today unveiled its newest innovation in digital keys, the ABLOY BEAT. The new keyless solution combines three main components: a digital key, a mobile application and a heavy-duty, Bluetooth padlock. All is managed with the visual ABLOY OS user interface.

Among businesses worldwide, there is a growing need for the convenience and accessibility of highly secure keyless access solutions – either as an addition to existing workflows or as a standalone solution. Especially in remote areas or situations where carrying a physical key can bring the possibility of corruption or even danger for the holder, a mobile solution is also in demand.

“BEAT is part of the ongoing ‘keyvolution’, heralding a new era of effortless connectivity, without a physical key. Yet there are no keyless locks. The key has just taken on some new forms. Leveraging on our heritage and expertise in high-level security, we have built a new digital key. It is encrypted with the most advanced Seos® credential technology, developed by HID Global. Used with your mobile device, the digital key provides best-in-class security and privacy protection,” said Jorma Issakainen, Vice President, ABLOY Critical Infrastructure.

Combining a digital key with a heavy-duty Bluetooth padlock

BEAT is designed especially for professional physical protection of critical infrastructure, businesses and industry sites. While securing property, it also offers customers improved operational efficiency, reducing both logistics and costs. It also saves on fuel emissions, making it a sustainable option. The solution is intended to be used in sectors like telecom and data centers, transportation and logistics, utilities (water, electricity, gas) and mining.

The digital BEAT key connects to the physical heavy-duty, Bluetooth padlock, designed to perform in harsh environments and remote areas. The padlock has an IP68 protection rating, a case-hardened steel body and LED indications for lock status. It complements the current ABLOY® SUPER WEATHER PROOF range of padlocks.

Future-ready to meet changing security needs

BEAT can be integrated with existing security workflow solutions in use, but it can also be implemented as a standalone locking solution with ABLOY OS. ABLOY OS enables managing keys, locks, and access rights on-the-go and remotely from a single, easy-to-use and highly visual interface.

BEAT is the latest addition to Abloy’s comprehensive and evolving digital portfolio of future-ready security and access control solutions. The news announced today is the first phase of the BEAT solution, and the company plans to unveil new features in the future.

With today’s launch the ABLOY digital portfolio now includes both keyless (BEAT), electromechanical (PROTEC2 CLIQ) and mechanical (ABLOY® PROTEC2) options. All options, including the mechanical PROTEC2, can in the near future be managed with the same ABLOY OS interface. ABLOY Competence Centers, sales units and distributors on six continents provide customers with technical expertise, professional service and support.

Starting from today, ABLOY BEAT will be made available globally in stages. It will be showcased on international trade shows such as Expo Seguridad (Mexico) in April, ISC Brasil (Brazil) in June, ISC West (USA) in July, as well as IFSEC International (UK) and GSX (USA) in September. Samples will also be available for examination at ABLOY distribution offices.
