Supplier: Electro-Com (Australia) Pty Ltd
28 October, 2008

Electro-Com together with Salto Systems have introduced a new range of Electronic Radio Frequency Door Locks into the Australian market. The locks are smart, secure and innovative and will fit on most Australian doors.

In today's fast moving and constantly changing world nothing stays the same for long. New working practices and new employee's means security has to continually change and evolve to keep pace. As a result building and workspaces need to be flexible and adaptable, ready to incorporate new technologies using stand alone door units with real time on-line systems that are inspiring to use, simple to install and able to work with existing IT networks. Below is a full range of the product offering:

Networked Handle Sets
Electronic handle sets are the new access control platform from SALTO enabling users to control and manage a greater range of applications than ever before. The handle sets need no hard wiring and provide a totally wire free networked electronic locking solution with a great range of features.

Electronic Cylinder
The electronic SALTO thumbturn cylinder is an excellent access control solution for those doors where fitting a electronic handle set is not possible, like for instance an antique door of a protected building. The exchange data on changes of authorisation and on events is carried out by the means of the virtual network of the respective identification media.

Wall Readers
The WRM1000 and WRM2000 are SALTO iButton wall readers. They read data from the iButton carriers and then communicate it to the control units. They also allow for updating of the carriers via the SALTO Virtual Network technology.

I-Lockers
The SALTO i-Locker electronic lock is designed to provide a high level of security protection for lockers and cabinets etc. It features a large twist operated locking turn for ease of use, and the access reader is built into the outside escutcheon. The locking mechanism, electronic components and battery pack are all located on the inside of the door, safe from potential manipulation or vandalism.

Card, wristband, key fob or bracelet RFID formats can be used with the i-locker. The i-Locker is perfect for controlling access to lockers, capboards, cabinets, cabins, boxes, showcases where access control and full audit trialling are required and where valuables such as medical drugs, electronic equipment and museum pieces are stored.

Energy Saving Devices
The SALTO in room energy saving device (ESD) helps to save up to 65% of a hotels rooms electricity consumption and unlike standard (magnetic stripe) energy saver, only authorised SALTO key cards will switch on the lights. Any other card (frequent flyer, business card etc) will not be recognised.

 It is also available in a connected on-line version, which as well as energy saving indicates in real time the presence of guests or staff in a room, logging the information directly into the hotel PC. When a guest enters the room and inserts their card into the ESD it switches on all electrical equipment. When staff enter the room for cleaning or maintenance the ESD recognises their staff card and switches on only the electrical equipment they need to accomplish their work. The TV, air conditioning and mini bar are switched off or locked - saving energy.

Access Control Management
SALTO Pro Access Software has been developed to create a powerful Access Control Management tool. Its main features allows you to program in access time zones for each user, take into account different company calendars, obtain audit trails from the door to see who has passed through it, and it includes special functions like automatic changes of the door status, antipass back and relay management.

Pro Access can manage large numbers of door installations, and as most access related information is written on the credential, the management of the doors becomes in most cases a management of the credential.

The SALTO Portable Programming Device is the messenger between the computer and the lock.
