About Mercury Security

Our History

Since its start in 1992, Mercury Security has focused on a distinct manufacturing niche: innovative OEM technology for the increasingly demanding world of facility security and access control. Authentic Mercury controllers and embedded solutions consistently provide our partners the most reliable and scalable open platforms.

In 2013, Mercury was acquired by ACRE, an international holding company based in the United States, which owns companies in the global market for electronic security systems.

In 2017, Mercury was acquired by HID Global®, an ASSA ABLOY Group brand, and a worldwide leader in trusted identity solutions.

HID‘s global leadership in the physical access control industry coupled with Mercury Security’s industry leading open access control platform will benefit customers from around the world to a tighter, more seamless integration of intelligent controllers with readers and credentials, as well as from our shared vision for an open, flexible approach to the access control ecosystem.

With more than three million panels installed around the world, Mercury has grown to become the controller platform supplier of choice for true open architecture based deployments.
