AIO-168,AIO-16 and AIO-08 Discontinuation

The AIO-168, AIO-16 and AIO-08 alarm products have reached end of life and have been replaced by the ASP-IO168/16/08/X08 family of new alarm panels. Components for the AIO alarm products abruptly became no longer available to continue manufacturing. The ASP-IO family of products are direct replacements for the previous generation alarm panels and work with the AAN-32 and AAN-100 controllers as well as the new generation ASP-4 and ASP-2 high speed network controllers. The ARM-8 eight output relay expansion module for the AIO-168 is still available. The new generation alarm products are faster and more flexible while retaining the features of the previous generation alarm panels. The ASP alarm family of products are available in serial, network and POE versions and are available in increased numbers of alarm zone termination values. 

 

There are no plans to discontinue providing the AAN-100/32 controllers and the AIM-4/2/1SL reader interfaces.

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Readiness

 
The European Union General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a new set of rules that requires businesses to protect the personal data and privacy of European Union citizens for transactions that occur within European Union member states and globally. Organizations doing business in EU and with EU citizens must affect policies and procedures to be in compliance or face heavy fines and sanctions.

Apollo APACS Access Control and Alarm Monitoring software version 3.9 SP3 has been designed to allow organizations to easily comply with GDPR requirements.  Previous service packs and APACS versions may not be able to provide the necessary restrictions on personal data. Thus, it is highly recommended that any organizations using APACS who need to comply with GDPR should upgrade to APACS version 3.9 SP3.

For more information and upgrade options contact your Apollo sales representative or Apollo headquarters in Newport Beach, California.
