ASSA ABLOY launches new SMARTair ® Knob Cylinder

  • 23 Jul 2019

ASSA ABLOY has combined style, intelligence and robustness with its new SMARTair ® Knob Cylinder, part of the SMARTair ® access control system.

This new intelligent device benefits with integrated RFID reader comes in elegant, contemporary finishes and colours, upgrading aesthetics and functionality in equal measure. 

The new Knob Cylinder fits seamlessly and flexibly into a SMARTair ® system, providing advanced, user-friendly access management designed to make any workplace work better. If you need to monitor and control who goes where, and when, you need the new SMARTair ® Knob Cylinder.

The Knob Cylinder is battery-powered and works with every SMARTair ® access management option, so you can choose between online (“real-time”), offline, update-on-card and standalone management — or combine more than one system at the same site with the same software interface.

Upgrading to the new Knob Cylinder is simple: just replace an existing mechanical cylinder with the new device. No complex installation or drilling stands between you and safe, reliable, flexible SMARTair ® access control. Glass, wooden or aluminium doors —Scandinavian, Euro and many other profiles — present no problem.

The Knob Cylinder works with all standard proximity technologies, including MIFARE ® , DESFire and iCLASS ® , and also offers another new way to open your doors — with the SMARTair ® Openow™ mobile app.

Modern and mobile-ready, the SMARTair ® Knob Cylinder is built to make your building smarter. Security is simpler than ever with Openow™, meaning users no longer carry separate credentials; just their smartphone with secure virtual keys stored inside.
