SMARTair closes the door on unauthorised access at National Park

SMARTair wireless access control has been installed at a Slovakian campsite in the Tatra National Park following several issues with unauthorised access.

During the busy season, park campground facilities were being used frequently by day-trippers, when they were intended for registered campsite guests only. This therefore heightened the risk of theft and damage, as well as increasing wear and tear.

Park management organisation TANAP asked ASSA ABLOY to supply SMARTair to secure the facilities. SMARTair wireless access control was installed, with offline escutcheons and 350 wristband credentials supplied. 

Guests checking in receive a wristband which provides secure access to the private facilities and prevents unauthorised access. The simply, intuitive SMARTair admin software makes it easy to manage access permissions for the wristbands.

The wireless and battery-powered escutcheons were easy to install with no expensive and intrusive cabling. SMARTair is ideal for retrofitting an existing structure like a campsite toilet block: installers simply replaced the standard door’s old mechanical lock with a SMARTair device, and connected it to the SMARTair software.

The installation at the Tatra National Park campground works via update-on-card, which is perfect in settings with medium to high user traffic. Wall updaters provide a link between the doors and the software, and access rights can be updated via user cards.

Savel Lubomir, Facility Manager at Tata National Park comments: “Its simplicity, yet versatile functionality, make it easy to manage. SMARair will help us reduce damage and wear-and-tear on the facilities, which can directly impact costs and the use of our resources.”

Campsite guests can now access the Tatra National Park facilities whenever they want, without needing to locate staff or wait around for someone to arrive with an old-fashioned key.
