Abloy UK launches the new SMARTair® i–gate Electronic Padlock, which is built for use almost anywhere, boasting resistance to attack and extreme weather, wire-free installation, and battery-powered operation.
This new device in the SMARTair wireless access control range enables facility managers to add real-time control to non-electrified gates, cupboards, cabinets, crates and more. No matter where they are or whatever the climate.
For many organisations, security and access needs do not stop at the perimeter door. Yet finding reliable locking devices which are easy to operate with an electronic access system can be difficult.
Gates and outbuildings are hard to reach with cabling. Access devices may not have the resilience necessary for reliable operation outdoors. The i–gate is built to meet these challenges.
Pip Courcoux, Product and Sales Manager for CLIQ® at Abloy UK, explains: “The new SMARTair i–gate Electronic Padlock helps our customers extend wire-free control to new access points. It can be instantly moved to wherever a resistant, adaptable locking device is needed.
“Site managers no longer need to worry about outbuildings, gates, cupboards and more, because they can monitor and control access to them electronically, remotely and in real time, when required.”
Upgrading an existing padlocked closure involves simply swapping the devices and integrating the i–gate Padlock into an existing or new SMARTair wireless access control system. No drilling or wiring is necessary. The i–gate Padlock is available in a contemporary black finish with stainless steel shackle.
It is now possible to can now be control and monitor exterior and interior openings, previously unsuited to electronic access control, from a familiar software interface, including remotely from the SMARTair Web Manager.
An i–gate is compatible with any SMARTair system management option: Standalone, for basic access control functionality; Update on Card; Openow™, for access management and unlocking via smartphone; and Pro Wireless Online, for real-time management of every door and system user.
The new SMARTair i–gate padlock is robust enough for almost any climate conditions. It has a watertight cover (IP68 rating) and an internal cylinder with Durability EN 15684 Class 6 Certification. It is battery powered and works with all standard proximity credential technologies, including MIFARE®, DESFire and iCLASS®, as well as Bluetooth Low Energy.
In tandem with Openow, the mobile solution for SMARTair, users no longer need to carry separate card or fob credentials.
No one wastes time collecting or validating an access card, because they can unlock the new SMARTair i–gate Padlock with a smartphone. With Openow, if you have your phone, you are already carrying your keys.
