SALTO Systems attains prestigious Secured by Design certification

SALTO Systems – the specialist in wire-free, wireless and cloud-based access control solutions – has been been awarded the prestigious Secured by Design (SBD) accreditation for its electronic security products.

This means that the company’s XS4 electronic escutcheons and XS4 GEO electronic cylinder products have not only passed SBD’s stringent security tests, but also that these approved products will be routinely audited or re-certified every year, in turn providing valuable evidence of the company’s continued compliance.

SBD is governed by a UK-wide representative Board whose members include chief constables and works with police forces, the Government, local authorities, regulatory authorities, developers, builders, product manufacturers and many other organisations around the country to implement effective security standards in environmental design and product resilience.

Independent academic research shows that SBD developments can achieve crime reductions of up to 75% compared to non-SBD sites.

Ramesh Gurdev, managing director of SALTO Systems UK, stated: “We’re extremely proud to have been awarded Secured by Design accreditation. The SALTO XS4 electronic escutcheons and XS4 GEO electronic cylinder products are now certified and compliant to the highest industry standards.”

Gurdev added: “We always strive to deliver the most technologically advanced electronic access control solutions, and this certification means our customers can rest assured that SALTO products are among the most secure in the market.”

Clay by SALTO access control solution on show at MLA Expo in October

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!

No Man's Fort: now a luxury hotel development

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.”

Zaplox Mobile Key Services integrated with SALTO Systems’ access control solution for hotels

Zaplox – a recognised market innovator when it comes to advanced Mobile Key Services for the global hospitality industry – has now integrated its solution with SALTO Systems, in turn providing hotels and their guests with “unmatched convenience” and “superior satisfaction”.

Zaplox becomes the first Mobile Key Services company to announce its integration with SALTO Systems. The new strategic global partnership formed between the two companies allows any property with SALTO BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy)-enabled locks installed to easily implement mobile access functionality for guests while at the same time experiencing the “unique operational benefits” that Zaplox Mobile Key Services provide.

Through the new technology integration with Zaplox, guests of properties with SALTO access control systems will now be able to use their smart phones for guest room access. For their part, hoteliers can offer and promote revenue-creating smart services with full customisation and hotel branding on the Zaplox Mobile Key Services app platform.

This wide range of ancillary services, which can be made available in the app, includes mobile check-in and check-out, room upgrades, restaurant bookings, room service and special offers.

The user-friendly Zaplox Mobile Key Services app is easily downloaded and available for all major smart phone platforms. With recent industry research indicating that more than 70% of business and leisure travellers would opt to use their smart phones as a check-in alternative, Zaplox Mobile Key Services duly allow guests to bypass the front desk altogether.

Additionally, mobile keys are highly secure since a guest’s smart phone is less likely to be misplaced than a plastic key card and. typically, is password protected. Should a guest lose their phone, mobile keys may easily be revoked and reassigned in real time by hotel staff.

Raising the bar for guest room security

In less than a decade, SALTO has become one of the world’s top five manufacturers of electronic access control systems. The company has a strong tradition of delivering the latest in guest room access technology and has launched a series of innovations since its founding, raising the bar for guest room security to new heights.

By combining SALTO smart locks with Zaplox Mobile Key Services, hotels benefit from enhanced cost efficiencies through streamlined operations and revenue opportunities, allowing front desk staff to focus on other aspects of guest service and communication.

“We’re thrilled to serve as the first mobile key app provider for SALTO Systems, in turn providing the company and its clients with an integration-ready solution that’s instantly available for commercialisation around the globe,” said Magnus Friberg, CEO at Zaplox,

“This is a very important collaboration for Zaplox as it opens up new market possibilities together with an industry-renowned partner. We strongly believe that mobile keys and the additional services included will improve both guest loyalty and enhance the guest experience by making it a smooth and comfortable proposition.“

Jennifer Stack, vice-president of marketing at SALTO Systems, responded: “Research shows guest demand for the use of smart phones and apps as part of their hotel experience is increasing. This integration with Zaplox is perfect for delivering an exciting range of benefits enabling guests to enjoy all the advantages provided by integrated smart technology designed to maximise the flexibility and enjoyment of their hotel stay.”

Salto Systems and Maxxess establish strategic partnership

Salto Systems, the wire-free and wireless access control technology specialist, and Maxxess (the US-based global corporation recognised for its award-winning security software) have announced a strategic partnership. The collaboration brings together Salto’s Virtual Network (SVN) with Maxxess’ universal security management software, designated eFusion, to deliver “a powerful integrated platform” for managing both online and offline access points.

The integration combines flexible and efficient wireless SVN access control with eFusion’s command and control capability. When an access incident occurs, eFusion presents operators with accurate details from SVN, along with visual verification through its integrated surveillance capability. Displayed policies and procedures provide the information necessary for security teams to initiate a fast and appropriate response.

The end result is reduced operator interaction together with automated reporting. This improves productivity, fills security gaps, enforces compliance with standard operating procedures and acts as a ‘force multiplier’ for multi-site operations.

Marc Handels, chief marketing and sales officer at Salto Systems, commented: “Integration with eFusion extends the value and benefits our customers can now realise from their online Salto SVN solution. With SVN we have already eliminated lock re-programming, re-keying and the hard wiring of buildings to create greater efficiencies and cost savings for our customers. eFusion builds on this with an industry-leading range of off-the-shelf integrations that improve the productivity of security teams while also increasing resilience through faster and more accurate responses to an ever-changing landscape of threats.”

Maxxess Systems’ president Nancy Islas added: “Our partnership with Salto provides our customers with the added benefit of its online wireless networked electronic locking solution as an integral part of the eFusion platform. Our eFusion software continues to lead the industry with off-the-shelf integrations that include more third party systems than any other security platform, in turn providing customers with the scalability to future-proof their security investments.”
