SALTO Access Control Systems Become Suddenly Smarter at ASIS

SALTO Systems, found on the ASIS expo floor at booth 2425, is featuring a range of products but none more prominently that its IP66-rated SALTO GEO, an RFID electronic cylinder that the company says is like none other to be found at the show here in the expansive (and exhausting) Pennsylvania Convention Center nor, for that matter, on the planet.

"Our cylinder can go into a standard lock or RIM-operated device," says SALTO Senior VP Michael Mahon. "It will provide users with everything -- an audit trail, time zones, restrictions and more. . . . And it installs within 15 minutes."

Version 1 of the SALTO GEO worked similarly to an online access control system, yet the product was an offline electronic cylinder. Now, introduced just this week, the GEO is even more advanced and works online as well, via wireless communication.

Other launches made at the booth this week include an NFC application that works with HTC phones and a smart graphical floorplan. "Now, when you have wireless communication locks, you can see doors open and close," Mahon explained.

SALTO's XS4 dual-validation electronic lock with keypad allows users to employ a credential plus a PIN code, the keypad code or the credential only. With the new Sallis 125 kHz HID Prox lock, end users will see a reduction in costs, Mahon said, adding that the Prox lock enhances online access control systems because integrators can install it without having to run wires. It also leads to another benefit for end users, he said: they can now secure more doors.

In addition, the company is exhibiting the SALTO Virtual Network (SVN), a key control access security system designed to eliminate the need to replace locks when key or code security is breached. The SVN can be seamlessly integrated with an existing IT system to allow key cards and locks to be updated, restricted or deleted. In addition, the SVN allows building access without wiring or WiFi infrastructure because all locks communicate with a central PC by using key cards as their network. The system eliminates card costs because it enables end users to employ their cellphones to access the system.
