Smartair from Abloy UK is a revolutionary development in access control and its flexibility and cost have taken the industry by storm emerging as a real alternative to the traditional rules of access control.
Quite simply, Smartair is a wire-free system.
Traditionally, access control required a door to have a reader, electric lock, accessories and a power supply which where all required to be hard wired to the door. Smartair, as you can see, is a stand alone escutcheon which is battery operated (typical battery life is 3 years) and the escutcheon can be installed with a variety of locks to either create an access controlled door or upgrade a door into a security system.
Furthermore, Smartair is the the most flexible access control system in the marketplace. With 3 options available - Stand Alone, Update On Card and Online and a full upgrade path available to upgrade from one system to the next with no redundancy of materials it is a system that can be installed initially onto a single door and the devloped to a full online system seamlessly.
Smartair also has depth in its range, the system is not just a series of escutcheons, there are also wall readers where doors require electric lock or automation and networked control units for PC control of hot spots and update doors.
