SALTO Systems, together with partner EMS Distribution, will be presenting Clay by SALTO on Stand 217 at this year’s MLA Expo, which runs at the Telford International Centre from 2-4 October.
In a world where everything is becoming smarter, security and risk management professionals are looking for new solutions that make sense in an increasingly digital-focused environment. They want to substitute mechanical locks with secure electronic products, in turn creating keyless buildings that are smart to own, operate and manage.
Clay by SALTO is the ideal solution for achieving this. It’s a secure, cloud-based wireless locking solution that provides security professionals with a smart access control system that’s easy and quick to install, commission and manage.
Existing mechanical locks would be replaced with Clay smart locks. They fit any type of door. It’s then a case of installing Clay IQ that serves as the hub between the wireless lock and the cloud. This is simple to set up. There’s no configuration needed. It’s truly a plug-and-play solution.
The software is then set up for end users to control the access rights around ‘Whom?’, ‘When?’ and ‘Where?’
There’s no requirement for installation on a server. End users simply manage and control their Clay access control system by downloading the my-Clay app. This works with any Internet-connected device, be it a PC, tablet or smart phone. The result is immediate access control from everywhere, with alarms and notifications as they happen.
Clay by SALTO provides end users with excellent functionality and performance. It offers a flexible management system that requires no software installation nor the cost of a fully-wired electronic product.
Advanced SALTO access set-up secures No Man’s Fort
A mile offshore from the Isle of Wight you can find one of Britain’s most unique Victorian structures. Built between 1867 and 1880, No Man’s Fort has recently been re-launched as a luxury hotel and party venue by AmaZing Venues, part of the Clarenco Group.
Originally designed to house 80 soldiers defending the country from possible invasion, No Man’s Fort has been turned it into a unique ‘get-away’ destination playing host to 22 luxury bedrooms, a dining room that can seat 200 people, games rooms, a laser battle arena, an outdoor terrace with a sun deck, a hot tub, a sauna and, of course, that much-needed parking space for your helicopter!
SALTO Systems’ partner Lock-Tech Systems was employed to design and install the hotel’s access control system.
The client was particularly concerned about providing a feature-rich technical solution in keeping with the aesthetics of the doors inside No Man’s Fort. To meet this specification, Lock-Tech selected SALTO’s Aelement electronic locking system, which combines all the features of SALTO’s award-winning access control solution with the ability to incorporate the uniqueness of the client’s existing door handles.
Aelement has been developed with the needs of hotels in mind and features a range of hospitality-specific applications, including the ability to control the security of the entire hotel from a single location. This encompasses granting access privileges to individual guest rooms and gathering audit trail data from every door in real-time – all without leaving the front desk.
Other benefits for the hotel include instant room move and instant extended stay abilities, as well as lost card cancellation, intrusion alarm, door ajar alarm, remote opening, real-time audit trails, passage mode activation for meeting rooms and automated low battery reporting.
This technology mix affords the hotel’s management the ability to continuously upgrade security without having to upgrade the locks, saving on operating costs while providing what’s most needed – total control.
“This project stood out for me because of the logistics involved in just getting to the site,” urged Lock-Tech’s systems manager Anthony Harvey. “A helicopter may have come in handy at times to be honest! Despite the logistical challenges, our team pulled together and delivered a system that exceeds the customer’s expectations. I’m sure it will continue to do so for many years to come.”
Phil Harvey, managing director at Lock-Tech, added: “This project demonstrates Lock-Tech’s ability to meet customer requirements no matter how difficult or impossible the task may seem. We look forward to continuing to work with AmaZing Venues on any of the company’s exciting future developments.”
