SALTO Systems has released SVN-Flex, a new feature that enables SALTO standalone electronic locks and cylinders to update user credentials directly at the door.
This SALTO access control technology makes keyless, wire-free smart buildings a reality. SVN-Flex maximizes the potential, the efficiency and reliability of the SALTO Virtual Network (SVN), increasing the security, control, and convenience for users while reducing the costs of installation.
“SVN Flex is a game changer that creates a new standard in access control,” said Marc Handels, Chief Marketing and Sales Officer of SALTO Systems. “The door is the ultimate touch point in an access control system and making its wireless smart lock hardware an updating point for user credentials maximizes functionality and brings an unprecedented level of convenience and security for both end users and system administrators.”
Based on SALTO’s BLUEnet wireless communications technology, SVN core technology and in combination with the trusted access control management platform and high-quality XS4 electronic locking solutions, SVN-Flex extends and increases the number of updating points directly to any door. SVN-Flex functionality can be enabled on any product in the SALTO XS4 BLUEnet enabled electronic lock range.
SVN-Flex is managed via SALTO’s ProAccess SPACE web-based access control management software. Adding SVN-Flex to an access control solution results in an exponential increase in security, control, effectiveness and convenience for users and system managers as the communication between devices flows in real-time on wireless online access points and much faster on offline points.
SVN-Flex dramatically reduces the cost of installing additional updating points in an access control system yet provides the capability of adding updating points where required. It might have been challenging in the past to provide several updating points on one building floor when required for security, for example. With SVN-Flex, however, the options for affordable updating points are endless: emergency exits, hall doors, gates equipped with mechanical cylinders, perimeter doors and much more.
Another benefit of SVN Flex includes the ability to easily cross-link stand-alone, wireless locks and online access points and integrate into existing IT networks without consuming valuable resources. This produces a reliable, on-premise infrastructure for access control that is designed to adapt and grow with any demand; from just one door and user up to hundreds of doors with thousands of users.
In the event of a network failure, SVN-Flex continues to operate seamlessly via SALTO’s SVN data-on-card backbone core technology, ensuring that no one will be locked out or any unwanted access will be permitted.
Because SVN-Flex is based on SALTO’s SVN core technology, it’s compatible on those sites that already use SVN. Just by installing SALTO BLUEnet wireless locks or cylinders in high traffic access points, current SALTO customers will benefit from a boost in their existing SVN system because it will increase the number of updating points. The rest of the offline installation will still work autonomously, but vital information like blacklist dissemination, user access plan updates, battery status reports or access audit trail reports will be updated more frequently.
“SVN-Flex is yet another example of SALTO’s commitment to delivering the most technologically —advanced access control solutions on the market— smart, contactless and mobile,” said Handels. “And although our products always include the latest in innovation, they are designed to be affordable and functional for customers of any size: from a two-room office to a university with thousands of doors.”
SVN Flex boasts numerous features and benefits which is why SALTO developed a special microsite that provides detailed product information and explains how the supporting technology works together to deliver a comprehensive access control solution.
SALTO Systems is a global leader in the development and manufacture of world-class access control solutions, particularly in sectors where security is critical – from airports and healthcare to government, education, sport and entertainment venues, hotels, and more.
