Offering resistance to attack and extreme weather, in addition to wire-free installation and battery-powered operation, the SMARTair i-gate electronic padlock is built for use almost anywhere. This new device in the SMARTair wireless access control range from ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions enables security and facility managers to add real-time control to non-electrified gates, cupboards, cabinets, closets and crates wherever they are and whatever the climate.
For many organisations, security and access needs do not stop at the perimeter door, yet finding reliable locking devices which are easy to operate with an electronic access system can be difficult. Gates and outbuildings are hard to reach with cabling. Access devices may not have the resilience required for reliable operation outdoors. The i-gate is built to meet these challenges.
“The SMARTair i-gate electronic padlock helps our customers extend wire-free control to new access points,” explained Félix Morán, SMARTair product manager at ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions EMEA. “It can be instantly moved to wherever a resistant and adaptable locking device is needed. Site managers no longer need to worry about outbuildings, gates, cupboards and more. They can now monitor and control access to them electronically, remotely and in real-time when needed.”
Upgrading an existing padlocked closure simply involves swapping the devices and integrating the i-gate padlock into an existing or new SMARTair wireless access control system. No drilling or wiring is required.
The i-gate electronic padlock is available in a contemporary black finish with stainless steel shackle. Exterior and interior openings previously unsuited to electronic access control can now be controlled and monitored from a familiar software interface, including remotely from the SMARTair Web Manager.
An i-gate padlock is compatible with any SMARTair system management option: standalone (for basic access control functionality), update on card, Openow (for access management and unlocking via smart phone) and Pro Wireless Online for real-time management of every door and system user.
Compatibility with any credential
The SMARTair i-gate padlock is robust enough for almost any climate conditions. It has a watertight cover (with an IP68 rating) and an internal cylinder with durability to an EN 15684 Class 6 certification. These padlocks are battery-powered and work with all standard proximity credential technologies, including MIFARE, DESFire and iCLASS, as well as Bluetooth Low Energy.
When combined with Openow, the mobile solution for SMARTair, end users no longer need to carry separate card or fob credentials. Instead, their phone stores secure virtual keys which can be issued, amended or cancelled at any time.
No-one wastes time collecting or validating an access card. They can unlock the new SMARTair i-gate padlock with a smart phone. With the Openow solution, an individual carrying their smart phone is already carrying their keys.
