The easy-to-manage SMARTair® system is now available to professional security installers from ASSA ABLOY Access Control, a UK division of ASSA ABLOY, the global leader in door opening solutions.
SMARTair® is an effective, fully-scalable access control system that can be installed quickly and easily by security installers. Available in offline and wireless online versions, SMARTair® is a flexible, end-to-end, battery-operated system. This makes it the perfect solution for a variety of installations.
SMARTair® uses radio-frequency identification (RFID) reader technology to provide a secure access solution to areas with diverse ranges and frequencies of foot traffic. The RFID reader and locking mechanism are all housed in one device, meaning SMARTair® is suitable for nearly all types of interior and exterior doors, as well as turnstiles, barriers, elevators and more.
As an energy-efficient technology, SMARTair® devices need minimal maintenance, with battery changes only required after approximately 70,000 cycles. It also eliminates key management and control issues in favour of a card-based access solution, in which cards can be issued, invalidated and updated in real time for maximum security.
SMARTair® is well-suited to the education sector, as it gives relevant stakeholders the ability to lock, unlock and grant door access permissions at allotted times and dates. The level of control is further strengthened with the audit trail function, which allows SMARTair® to provide detailed attendance records for security and administrative purposes.
These features showcase SMARTair® as a secure and flexible access control system that balances student safety with the adaptability an educational environment requires.
The ability to audit trail also makes SMARTair® an invaluable security solution for care home owners and operators. Because it can provide access control information 24/7 in real-time and audit trails can be provided to see who is accessing sensitive or restricted areas, SMARTair® can give stakeholders peace of mind and allow them to better fulfil their duty of care, as well as their health and safety obligations.
Alan Kent, Access Control Manager and SMARTair® specialist said: “SMARTair® is an access control solution that has been tried and tested over many years, and we are very excited to make this versatile system available through ASSA ABLOY Access Control. Its adaptability makes it ideal for a number of sectors, including education and healthcare.
“Security Installers can take advantage of the adaptability offered by SMARTair®, as well as UK-based technical training and support, marketing and expert back up from the ASSA ABLOY Access Control team.”
