Real-time smart electronic access

Issue 5 2020 Access Control & Identity Management

The capability of effectively extending real-time, online and mobile-enabled smart electronic access control to lockers and cabinets has eluded the security market until now. By incorporating BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) technology into its latest electronic locker lock, SALTO has delivered a product that extends electronic access control to lockers, cabinets, and essentially anywhere on the peripheral.

Said Aznar Sethna, CSMO at SALTO Systems. “The new SALTO XS4 Locker Lock with BLE technology drives manageability, creates a flexible and safe storage service environment, and enables users to have what they need at the touch of a mobile app or smartphone, wherever they are.”

The ability to deliver real-time electronic access control wirelessly to peripheral devices like lockers or cabinets has been long desired in the security industry. There are a variety of needs for securing the contents of lockers. In the workplace, lockers can contain property or expensive equipment. In gyms, lockers in locker rooms hold clothing and personal effects. Lockers and cabinets in the medical field, for example, can contain drugs, and, in retail, cabinets or lockers can contain cash and other valuables.

“Adding BLE capabilities to SALTO’s XS4 Locker Lock solution not only offers the most up-to-date protection for lockers and cabinets, but it also delivers the capability for end-users to control these devices with mobile phones and expands usage to additional SALTO platforms – like use with SALTO KS -Keys as a Service- cloud-based access control technology,” said Sethna.

SALTO BLUEnet technology drives the new functionality

The SALTO BLUEnet access control system is networked through Bluetooth RF and is specially designed for door lock applications where real-time control is required. Control and management of all access points can be done remotely and in real time. The SALTO BLUEnet Wireless engine allows the operator to monitor live access control events and provides the ability to unlock the locker lock, change opening mode, activate a lockdown, monitor live door status or change physical access rules in the access plan, all wirelessly and in real time.

The advanced smart technology that SALTO has integrated into every SALTO XS4 Locker Lock BLE models by SALTO BLUEnet generation smart lock also permits battery status management and audit trail recovery in real time. With the same features as an online SALTO BLUEnet wireless door, users of the SALTO XS4 Locker BLE can:

• Monitor online the status of the locker.

• Know if the locker was opened (means card presented).

• Bolt inside status (the deadbolt is retracted).

• Know if the door closed (means card presented).

• Bolt out status (the deadbolt is projected).

• Monitor online the battery status.

• Disseminate the blacklist on lockers.

• Update firmware through wireless infrastructure.

• Open the locker remotely.

• Perform an emergency opening.

• Perform lockdowns.

One of the primary benefits of a smart electronic access control solution is the ability to easily incorporate mobile access use. The SALTO XS4 Locker BLE is JustIN Mobile compatible which means that any user can use a smartphone (iOS or Android) to operate the locker lock.

Platform management systems including SALTO ProAccess SPACE Software are equally as important as the hardware component of the new SALTO XS4 Locker BLE. ProAccess SPACE advanced web-based access control management software provides administrators with the real-time view of locker usage with available reports and log files of each individual smart locker deployment, the ability to control lockers remotely, firmware update capability via wireless infrastructure, remote locker opening, emergency opening, lockdown capability and the ability to easily control all access and building user management needs with one easy-to-use system and friendly user-entered interface. This is safe and secure management that is fully compliant with GDPR standards.
