Students across Europe discover the benefits of ASSA ABLOY’s SMARTair®

  • 26 Sep 2018

Students across Europe are discovering all the benefits of ASSA ABLOY’s SMARTair® wireless access control with its convenience combined with high-security.

Adding SMARTair® access control to a door simply involves replacing a standard cylinder or escutcheon with a digital, smartphone- or smart-card–operated electronic lock. In addition, wherever you fit SMARTair®, it’s easy to configure access cards, making access as quick and simple as possible for students.

At Madrid’s Colegio Universitario de Estudios Financieros (CUNEF) students now open doors with smart MIFARE® RFID cards instead of keys. The escutcheons made life easier due to the lack of wired door locks whilst also making the campus safer as managers can now issue new credentials and automatically cancel lost cards.

When Mezzino took ownership of Rialto Court — apartments for students attending Durham University and Teesside University — they replaced a mechanical master key system with SMARTair® to make it as easy as possible to manage tenant turnovers, scheduled cleaning and summer shutdowns.

At Funway Academic Resort in Madrid, student rooms are also locked with SMARTair® escutcheons. Energy-saving wall devices inside rooms regulate electricity use, and students each have their own safe locked with a SMARTair® cabinet lock. The Funway gym, study rooms, games rooms, swimming pool and changing rooms, spa and staff areas are also
locked with SMARTair® escutcheons — and open with the same smart-card.

Moreover, SMARTair® Openow™ solution has recently been launched to put credentials on a mobile phone, allowing students to open their rooms and authorized doors with a smartphone. Student services or facilities managers issue virtual keys over-the-air — and can revoke them whenever they choose — so there’s no need for a key-card handover meeting. The virtual key also increases security as a fingerprint or face/eye scan is required to use the phone.

 

The complete SMARTair® solution includes wireless escutcheons, cylinders, wall readers, locker locks and more; the intuitive SMARTair® TS1000 software; and the enhanced new Openow™ app functionality. It works out the box and is easy to install — and even easier to operate.
