Australia’s St. Bernard’s College has upgraded its security system from mechanical keyed systems to the use of XS4 smart locks, with wall readers and control units from SALTO Systems, reports Security Park.
The new ID card system is regulated by SALTO WRM 9001 wall readers and is now responsible for controlling access to fifty doors on the premises, including offices, classrooms and IT centers. Additional functions are provided, including integration with photocopiers and library systems.
Unlike the college’s previous system, if key security is breached due to the loss of a key card, it can be instantly deleted from the system without the need or cost of rekeying or changing locks.
The system can also be programmed so that certain ID cards are allow access to specific rooms or areas within the college for selected periods only, with the doors auto locking after the time period has expired.
