There’s no need to wait for next major refurbishment to install an access control system. With new SMARTair™ wireless, battery-powered cylinders, businesses can upgrade to access control—quickly, securely and affordably. New SMARTair™ cylinders work together with SMARTair™ escutcheons and wall readers in a single system operated with standard RFID smartcards.

For businesses looking to install an access control system without the need to drill doors, SMARTair™ offers the perfect solution. Ideal for offices or meeting-room doors, or other doors with medium traffic, the cylinders are quick and easy to install. They are easily retrofitted: installers simple replace a door’s mechanical cylinder, with no drilling, no wires and no cables. A modern ergonomic design ensures minimal disruption to existing aesthetics.

SMARTair™ locking cylinders - A flexible solution

SMARTair™ locking cylinders are powered by standard batteries, which typically need replacing once every 2 years, or 60,000 cycles. The range is flexible, with cylinders for multiple door types, including Euro, Scandinavian, Australian and ANSI profiles. SMARTair™ cylinders can be fitted to wooden, glass or narrow doors, as well as exterior doors.

IP56-rated SMARTair™ cylinders can be installed alongside SMARTair™ escutcheons and wall readers as part of a single, secure, standalone access control system. SMARTair™ is perfect for small or medium-sized premises.

Facilities managers can easily administer the cylinders’ access rights via “update on card”; offline using a programming device; or online or via a communication hub linked to the system. If someone loses a smartcard, there’s no need to waste time and money changing locks. Simply de-authorise it and issue a replacement using the management software.
