SALTO’s near detection mode

Issue 2/3 2023 Products & Solutions, Access Control & Identity Management

SALTO’s Near Detection Mode is designed to improve your experience on the SALTO KS app using Digital Key with a wall reader. Near Detection Mode provides a solution to issues caused by interference that may occur in an instance where two or more wall readers are installed in close proximity to each other.

Before the introduction of this functionality, multiple wall readers within close proximity could potentially risk the Bluetooth signal being affected when trying to use Digital Key. With Near Detection Mode, a SALTO KS app user with the correct authentication rights, detected by this type of access point, the door automatically opens without interference.

Near Detection Mode is available to all SALTO KS users. If you have Near Detection Mode enabled, you do not risk the wrong wall reader receiving the signal of your presented Digital Key when there are multiple readers in the vicinity. Instead, the wall reader radius is reduced to avoid interference with the other mounted locks. The range of Bluetooth signal when it is enabled is 10 - 15 cm, but this may vary depending on the mobile device presented to the reader.

The wall reader is asleep until a Digital Key or tag is presented within close proximity to it, after which it can successfully be activated and unlock your door. Enabling Near Detection Mode, similarly, helps to avoid the risk of a wall reader receiving the signal from a Digital Key that was activated in the distance and possibly an undesired credential.
