Access Control Feature
Game-changing access control technology for Lockers and Cabinets with SALTO XS4 Locker BLE

The capability of effectively extending real-time, online and mobile enable smart electronic access control to lockers and cabinets has eluded the security market – until now. By incorporating BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) technology into their latest electronic locker lock, SALTO has delivered a product that extends up-to-date comprehensive electronic access control to lockers, cabinets, and essentially anywhere.

“With the world becoming more digital every day, the need to introduce the latest technology into the workplace, retail market, healthcare, and education sectors has never been greater,” said Aznar Sethna, CSMO SALTO Systems. “The new SALTO XS4 Locker Lock with BLE technology drives manageability, creates a flexible and safe storage service environment, and enables users to have what they need at the touch of a mobile app or smartphone, wherever they are.”

The ability to deliver real-time electronic access control wirelessly to peripheral devices like lockers or cabinets has been long desired in the security industry. There are a variety of needs for securing the contents of lockers. In the workplace, lockers can contain property or expensive equipment. In gyms, lockers in locker rooms hold clothing and personal effects. Lockers and cabinets in the medical field, for example, can contain drugs, and, in retail, cabinets or lockers can contain cash and other valuables.

SALTO has been a leader in electronic access control for lockers with the XS4 locker lock, but the new version adds game changing BLE functionality.

Adding BLE capabilities to SALTO’s XS4 Locker Lock solution not only offers the most up-to-date protection for lockers and cabinets, but it also delivers the capability for end-users to control these devices with mobile phones and expands usage to additional SALTO platforms – like use with SALTO KS -Keys as a Service- cloud-based access control technology...

How AEOS can help your business during the coronavirus pandemic

The outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19) has created uncertain times for all businesses. To safeguard your employees and society as a whole, there’s an urgent need to make contingency plans and take special measures. Whether it’s in relation to your own policies or to support government recommendations, the actions you take need to be both robust and responsive.

If you have AEOS access control, there are several features to support your contingency measures – either during a short deep-clean period or for a lengthier term. AEOS will let you uphold your emergency policies by restricting access entirely or partially, and by isolating all or some of each of your locations.

Put your locations on lock-down

You may be asked to instantly lock down an area, building or site. You can do this using the ‘Lock’ option in AEOS [Entrance – Schedules – Lock]. It’s highly secure and means no one can enter (or exit) the entrances you’ve chosen to lock. Access can only be gained if someone logs in and removes an entrance from the ‘Lock’ option or uses the ‘(De)Activate access control’ function.

You may also be asked to lock-down an area in a more managed way – for example during a period of deep-cleaning so approved personnel can enter and exit the building or area. If you want to lock a building to everyone except a specific group of people, you can create a ‘holiday’ from your normal access rules [authorisation – maintenance – holidays]. You set the times, dates and entrances for the building or area to be non-operational and then select ‘applies to carriers...
