SALTO provides access control during construction and operational phases to Bethanie As Western Australia’s largest not for profit aged care and retirement village provider, Bethanie is committed to providing a warm, social and engaging environment in which seniors can enjoy a vibrant, energetic and social lifestyle. The company’s mission is to make a real difference to people’s lives, and one of the ways they strive to achieve this is to offer a range of retirement living options for all budgets from care in the home and social centre’s for seniors, to retirement villages, affordable housing and residential aged care across Perth and regional Western Australia. The challenge Having taken the decision to upgrade their security from a traditional mechanical keyed system and all the hassles that entailed such as replacing locks and cutting keys to something that provided far higher levels of protection, the search began for a reliable and economical electronic system that could efficiently run and manage multiple displaced sites that were up to 230km distant from one another. This included 3 Lifestyle Villages in Yanchep, Bunbury and Eaton and 2 Apartment Housing developments in Dalyellup & Mandurah. The essential requirements were the flexibility to secure existing doors without having to alter hardware; an ability to easily track and replace key cards in use and be able to remotely manage the access control systems across the various properties from one central location. Through a partnership with SALTO Systems (Australia); local SALTO dealer GWA Group and installer Blue Force Pty Ltd., Bethanie was able to find a system that delivered on all of these requirements and more. The solution The SALTO Access Control system installed by Blue Force Pty Ltd provides an excellent balance between cost and control. Its use of SALTO’s unique XS4 and SVN access control platform now provides a stand-alone networked locking solution for over 130 doors including apartment front entrance doors, club house front entrance doors, miscellaneous lifestyle village internal doors and perimeter gates without the need to hardwire or run power to each lock. "SALTO has exceeded our expectations on the versatility and ease with which actions can be undertaken" Neil Armstrong, SALTO Business Development Manager Western Australia, says “Our XS4 electronic escutcheon platform in a mix of offline and online handle sets, together with its associated control units and wall readers provides the means to operate a totally keyless environment thanks to their unique ability to distribute card holder and system information to access controlled doors by using Mifare /DESFire key cards to upload and download information between the on-line and off-line doors. The client needed the ability to deploy a solution to remote buildings where network infrastructure is limited and where it would be both difficult and expensive to install it in the required locations. This meant going for a stand-alone system was the obvious choice as it was less expensive and faster to deploy than traditional hard wired solutions without any need to compromise on safety or security. Such a system also helps them overcome the challenges associated with managing remote sites and improves service levels to staff and end users and facilitates the company becoming more efficient through reduced capital and operational expenditure.” With the installation, Bethanie management staff now has remote access to all the above sites from their head office location via Salto Systems Pro Access software which is professionally hosted within a data centre facility in Perth WA. SALTO’s SVN access control platform provides a networked locking solution to Australian seniors This software allows them to manage their multiple sites through one common platform via an in-built departmental feature. What’s more its remote door open tool also saves Bethanie time in deploying resources to provide physical access to contractors or delivery people requiring access to remote sites. It is also useful in instances where end users are accidentally locked out and need access quickly - saving in time and cost associated with providing resources to re-actively travel to and from site. The result Seniors accommodation, particularly in retirement communities, can face a number of special and sensitive security issues so ensuring the safety of residents is a high priority. Controlling access therefore plays a hugely important role and the industry leading SALTO access control solution supplied by GWA Group and Blueforce Pty Ltd now provides a comprehensive, future-proof service to Bethanie. From assistance with the specification, to supply, install and commissioning, both companies knew it was essential to deliver an outstanding service from start to finish. Bethanie’s Contract & Building Services Administrator Alan Sheehan said “SALTO has exceeded our expectations on the versatility and ease with which actions can be undertaken. It gives us the ability to deploy access control to remotely situated developments during both construction and operational phases, and its SVN technology can be deployed quickly as there is no dependency on physical network infrastructure, or even power supply. This allows us to provide a safe and secure environment to all our stakeholders at all phases of site development.” "It gives us the ability to deploy access control to remotely situated developments during both construction and operational phases" Neil Armstrong concludes “The combination of the SALTO XS4 wireless product together with motivated, competent installation engineers and clarity of direction from such a professional client ensured we delivered the project on time and fully met Bethanie’s security expectations.”
Ireland West Airport Knock is Ireland’s fourth international airport and features modern passenger and commercial facilities as well as extensive aircraft operation areas. Operating 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and servicing in excess of 629 000 passengers per year, the Airport is the main international air access gateway for the West, North West and Midland regions of Ireland. The Airport has also experienced rapid development and now serves more than 20 scheduled and charter destinations across Ireland, the UK, Europe and beyond. Welcoming the new partnership with SALTO Systems, Tomas Grimes, Property Manager, Ireland West Airport Knock said: “We are delighted to welcome the SALTO Systems brand to Ireland West Airport Knock. Following the completion of our new terminal building we wanted to update and modernise Airport access control system security and felt that SALTO Systems offered the best solutions and mechanics, namely its aviation leading XS4 Mifare smart card access control system. We look forward to working with SALTO to roll out this security system throughout the Airport and building a long successful relationship with them.” The Airport has an ambitious rolling infrastructural investment and improvement programme worth €46million and work includes a number of significant civil and building projects including a new terminal expansion. A substantial extension to the apron will see this more than double in size, while other improvements include improvements to safety and security systems, expanded aircraft handling facilities and a Category II Instrumentation Landing Systems (CAT II ILS) on runway 27 to enhance the reliability of the airport in low visibility conditions. Commenting on the new deal with Ireland West Airport Knock Aznar Sethna, SALTO Systems Area Sales Manager Northern Europe said: “As part of their planned security improvement programme, Ireland West Airport Knock required a highly secure and reliable security solution that could be customised to meet their specific environmental needs. To meet this expectation SALTO was approached to supply its aviation leading XS4 Mifare smart card access control system which through operations with British Airways, British Airports Authority and DHL Air Cargo among others has a proven record as one of the most reliable and resilient airport security solutions available. SALTO Systems’ approved Irish Distributor, Doorware Ltd was appointed security installer for the project” Going beyond just access control, SALTO provided the Airport with a reliable and fully integrated Building Security Solution with Doorware installing XS4 electronic locks to airside and landside doors in the new terminal extension and main goods lift. These are supplemented by wall mounted card readers and control units that serve as smart card SALTO provided a reliable and fully integrated Building Security Solution with Doorware installing XS4 electronic locks update and validation points. The XS4 system needs no hard wiring and provides a totally wire free networked electronic locking solution with a superb range of airport tailored features. It is designed around state-of-the-art electronics that use distributed intelligence to pass information between microprocessors in the escutcheon and the smart Mifare key card. It supports up to 64,000 users and is designed for use in stand-alone operations. A bonus when it comes to expanding the system into older parts of a building is that it can be easily added to almost any existing lock and door, turning them into fully featured access control doors that can integrate with the rest of the site without compromising security, convenience or control. It also permits users to benefit from the many advantages of the SALTO Virtual Network (SVN), enabling locks and operating cards to be rapidly updated, restricted or deleted remotely adding real value to the access management of a building. Kieran Gorey of Doorware comments: “Safety and security is seen by Ireland West Airport Knock as a top priority. As a sign of this commitment they wanted an access control system that employed the latest hardware and software technology yet was capable of handling any future expansion requirements at the airport. With SALTO XS4 they have got just that, a networked locking system with unlimited possibilities.
The brand new University Hospital Sant Joan de Reus, Barcelona’s most up-to-date health care facility, has chosen SALTO Systems XS4 smart access control system to provide advanced security management. One of Spain’s newest and ‘greenest’ hospitals, Sant Joan Reus has been jointly designed by the architects' studios Corea & Moran and Pich-Aguilera, specialists in hospital architecture. The hospital, which has 460 beds, specialises in treatments such as oncology, bariatric surgery, plastic surgery and repair, vascular medicine and thoracic surgery. The new hospital is integrated into the local environment not only from a landscaping point of view but has also been designed to be eco-efficient with the material used in its construction being among the most advanced and environmentally friendly available. Its operation is designed to reduce energy consumption by up to 35% compared with a standard hospital and it also features lighting and water reduction schemes as well as a living green roof. "As the premier healthcare-tailored access control system, the SALTO XS4 solution was an ideal choice for University Hospital Sant Joan de Reus," comments Marc Handels, Vice President Marketing and Sales of SALTO Systems. "Its power efficient technology means its needs no hard wiring saving time, materials and funding on installation. Working in consultation with the hospital we were able to design a highly secure and flexible access control system consisting of 100 doors within the main buildings secured with XS4 stand-alone electronic handle sets and 1400 lockers protected by XS4 locker locks. All of them use Mifare proximity technology so the same ID card can be used with all locks,” Handels continues. Smart, secure and innovative, XS4 provides a totally wire free networked electronic locking solution. Its state-of-the-art electronics use distributed intelligence to pass information between the electronic handle set and the key card. "As the premier healthcare-tailored access control system, the SALTO XS4 solution was an ideal choice for University Hospital Sant Joan de Reus" The heart of the system is its SALTO Virtual Network (SVN) software. This enables the locks and key cards to be updated remotely and access profiles to be changed rapidly adding real value to the access management of the hospital. It also eliminates the physical restrictions of traditional stand alone electronic locks and can seamlessly integrate with other third party systems to allow ID cards and locks to be updated, restricted or deleted remotely. The ‘smart’ ID cards build up 'on-card' audit through normal use giving University Hospital Sant Joan de Reus complete control over access. Any ID cards that get lost or stolen can be quickly and simply deleted from the system just by visiting the readers with up-dated cards. This eliminates the traditional need to replace locks if security is breached due to the loss or theft of an ID card.SALTO’s XS4 system thus provides the ideal platform to support the hospital’s decision to evolve their security by enabling complete integration and manageability.
