This is a question that we hear regularly but there is a simple solution to it, writes the access control product company Salto Systems.
Many companies, commercial manufacturing concerns or university campuses spread over large sites, want access control but they don’t want the disruption, inconvenience and sheer cost of a hard wired system. Nor do they need the instant reporting provided by a real time wireless system.
The answer is SALTO’s XS4 SVN data-on-card access control system. This is designed to work in a wire-free environment so there is no need to hard wire. It allows you to control your entire building or group of buildings remotely and in almost real time through the SALTO Virtual Network (SVN).
This software allows stand-alone electronic escutcheons to read, receive and write information via its operating smart cards or ‘intelligent’ keys. This data is captured from the cards at SVN online IP Access points located at strategic points around the building or group of buildings. The “updating points” upload and download user related information that is then used to permit, control or deny access.
By employees using their RFID cards on the network you distribute all the latest access information to the off-line stand alone electronic escutcheon, including the data on deleted cards, while at the same time picking up electronic escutcheon data like opening events and battery status. SVN does this for every employee in the building or group of buildings and it can handle up to four million users and 64,000 doors in one system so no matter how large the site, it can handle it.
It’s a solution for remote buildings as SVN ensures all the update points and locks are kept updated and secure, the product firm adds.
