Managers at Madrid-based Funway Academic Resort student accommodation have introduced ASSA ABLOY‘s SMARTair™ wireless access control system.
With students in this day and age becoming less au fait with physical keys, instead being surrounded by digital solutions and convenient connectivity, the decision appears to be an extremely logical one.
SMARTair™ is a secure and wireless access system that is capable of handling high traffic volume through the residence’s common areas.
Funway is a premium student accommodation block in Madrid, providing a whole host of facilities, including single and double rooms with Wi-Fi, a gym, swimming pool, laundry facilities, games room, restaurant and a rooftop bar.
Funway’s multiple door types prove no problem, as it has devices suited to them all, including lockers and bedrooms. SMARTair™ allows facility managers to have the flexibility to cope serenely with a high and rapid turnover of site users.
Student rooms at Funway are locked with SMARTair™ escutcheons, with each room containing an energy-saving device to control electricity use.
Students each have an in-room safe fitted with a SMARTair™ e-motion cabinet lock. Students and staff open all their authorised doors with the same access card; the Funway gym, games rooms, study rooms, swimming pool and changing rooms, spa and staff areas are also locked with SMARTair™ escutcheons.
Wall readers have been placed strategically to lock the main entrance and car park; working as updaters, meaning all users are “forced” to update their personal access rights every time they swipe a credential to enter the accommodation.
This allows facilities management staff to be sure that everyone’s smart cards are up-to-date, all of the time, ensuring the site’s security.
