  • 3 Nov 2017

SMARTair access control from ASSA ABLOY has the flexibility to handle the high traffic and rapid resident turnover of student accommodation. 

Screen Shot 2017-11-03 at 11.03.48High traffic at student accommodation blocks means a lot of daily events for access systems to handle. Rapid student turnover puts a further admin burden on facility managers, with a handful of students leaving and arriving each semester, various issues can arise. Physical keys and mechanical locks lack flexibility and don’t offer the control managers need.

The SMARTair wireless access system is built to handle high traffic and fast resident turnover. The system also secures cabinet locks and devices to protect secure areas like car parks.

In addition, the battery-powered locks are easy to retrofit wirelessly to existing premises or incorporate in a new-build. Installers simply swap the existing mechanical lock for a wireless device and link the door to the management software.

SMARTair devices can secure almost any opening, with escutcheons ideal for student bedrooms. The system is available with or without PIN entry and students can come and go using programmable smart cards, tags or a mobile app. Plus, students can use the same one key to access additional onsite services, in addition to their rooms.

The system is also cost-effective for accommodation providers as the SMARTair devices run on standard batteries.
