Real-time functionality can put access control managers in total control: ASSA ABLOY

  • 30 Aug 2019

What could real-time access control do for your building security? ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions answers that very question here…

In an instant, upgrading to real-time control boosts the intelligence of an access system, relaying live event reports and enabling you to change the security status of any door or user at any time.

Real-time access control with wireless online locking provides options that do not exist with offline systems. With real-time functionality, facility managers get audit trails and change access rights for any door, user or credential instantly.

You can lock or unlock any door remotely from the central admin software — which means no walking to the door in person and no delays when you need to take action at short notice.

In schools, real-time wireless online access control enables security managers to remotely lock and open doors in any emergency, or whenever they choose.

In hospitals equipped with real-time access control, staff see immediately who had access to drug stores or valuable equipment. Many more building types already benefit from real-time access control.

How does real time access control work?

Real-time access control relies on a network of communications hubs. These operate as a bridge between admin system software and access control door devices.

In a SMARTair® Pro Wireless Online system, one communications hub links up to 30 wireless locking devices to the central system.

Information is exchanged via an existing or new TCP/IP network, protected with AES-128 and SSL encryption.

You can pass updates or read the event logs of any battery-powered SMARTair® escutcheon, knob cylinder, lock or wall reader anytime you choose.

With real-time access control from SMARTair®, you can view the status of every door in your building at a glance. Alerts are monitored in real-time, so you track and prevent any attempted unauthorised access before it even happens.

A real-time SMARTair® system alerts a facility manager in cases of intrusion, doors left open, low battery status, denied access or attempted use of any cancelled card or mobile credential.

To amend door or time validity of any user credential takes a couple of clicks in SMARTair® admin software which you can access anytime and from anywhere.

Plus SMARTair® gives you the option to combine wireless online and offline doors in the same system. You can fine-tune where you deploy real-time access control in different areas of your premises.

How two schools benefit from real-time access control

Real-time access control can impact your security and access management no matter what size or type your premises.

At Westbridge Special Residential School, SMARTair® Wireless Online management proved a simple electronic solution for greater control and school security.

Each staff member carries one RFID credential card programmed with access rights personalized to their role. In an emergency, the school can remotely lock and open doors in real time via the admin software.

In Denmark, Vejle Friskole’s mechanical keys have been replaced by a SMARTair® online access control system. Over 80 doors and cabinets around the school are locked with SMARTair® wireless devices.

Using the intuitive SMARTair® software, managers always have an overview of who has been at the school, and when. Audit trails are generated and monitored in real time using the SMARTair® system.
