Value-add to smart estate living

Issue 2 2021 Access Selection Guide

Comprehensive access control and highly reliable security are essential to any smart estate. With digital applications and technology at the forefront of SoHo infrastructure adoption, dormakaba has rolled out the evolo Smart app for easy access rights control.

evolo Smart app enables homeowners to open doors using anything from an access card, key fob, or even a smartphone.

The matching dormakaba evolo door components are stand-alone operated. This means they are powered by a battery with no cables involved. For example, the dormakaba digital cylinder is inserted into the door instead of a mechanical lock cylinder that allows for easy dismantling later.

If you do use conventional locking cylinders, you can switch to evolo Smart without any major installation having to be done. dormakaba evolo Smart is an app that offers easy access control for up to 50 users.

If needed, evolo access components can be integrated into other access solutions from dormakaba. This means your investment is guaranteed in the long term and develops with your needs.

To complement and support the evolo Smart app is the Kaba evolo Manager, intuitive software that manages the whole system including user profiles, badges and door components.

There is an audit trail facility to provide all access and system incidents at a glance. Data access is given only to authorised personnel using a flexible authorisation concept.

Kaba evolo Manager is a comprehensive access system and easy to manage. It has various programming tools so that access rights can be adapted quickly and easily. The various stand-alone components can be programmed flexibly and in different ways, depending on the situation and requirement.

Among its key features are:

• Quick and easy to program and delete access media using a smartphone.

• Time-restricted access rights.

• Easy to delete and add new media.

• Door events can be tracked.

• Access media: choice of cards, key fobs or smartphone.

• No Internet connection required, the system runs locally.
