HID Aero Controllers

The HID Aero Controller product line provides a complete and fully functional hardware, firmware, software library and tool infrastructure accompanied by an API integration package for access control software providers.

This product line is ideal for access control providers who do not want to incur the ongoing costs of designing, manufacturing and maintaining panel hardware along with the critical access control logic that commonly resides locally in access control panels.

The HID Aero Controller product line is the successor to HID’s VertX Controllers and is based on HID Mercury panel technology, supporting 4 million+ panels installed globally since the 1990s.
