Axis Communications has collaborated with SimonsVoss Technologies GmbH to launch a fully integrated, IP-based digital locking and access control system. The integration represents an advanced, cost-effective wireless lock and access control solution that is ideal for replacing physical keys in buildings.
SmartIntego battery-powered digital locks in the form of either cylinders, padlocks or door handles connect wirelessly via its GatewayNode to AXIS A1001 door controller and AXIS Entry Manager software. The solution represents a complete, scalable, fully integrated, and future-proofed access control system without limitation.
Useful facts about the integration:
- Each SimonsVoss GatewayNode has a 16-wireless digital lock capacity
- Each A1001 manages one GatewayNode
- This means that each Axis A1001 door controller can manage up to;
- Sixteen SimonsVoss wireless locks
- One hard-wired door reader
- Axis and SimonsVoss solutions can be stand-alone (no server) or fully integrated solutions using an Axis software partner for enterprise installations
- Axis solutions are open, IP-based, and ONVIF-compliant
Seamless integration between wireless locks and access control
Online integration between the AXIS A1001 door controller and SmartIntego wireless lock components via AXIS Entry Manager is seamless as all products are built on open, IP-based architecture. IT administrators can setup and manage the entire integration via a single AXIS Entry Manager interface. The integrated solution allows for management of wired and wireless doors, with real-time monitored access and detailed audit trails. SmartIntego locks are compatible with European and Scandinavian door profiles.
Wireless lock technology has been enjoying strong growth globally in recent years as it begins to replace traditional physical keys
Wireless lock technology has been enjoying strong growth globally in recent years as it begins to replace traditional physical keys. This is not only because physical keys provide very low security levels. Wireless keys are cost-effective, too. Wireless locks also enable multiple functionalities, previously only available through wired doors, for a much lower cost.
Reducing lifecycle costs by 60%
“A door with wireless locks typically reduces lifecycle costs by 60% when compared to a wired door. This is thanks to simple, cable-free installation as well as the high costs of key re-suiting when a physical key is lost,” says John Allen, Business Development Manager, Access Control in Northern Europe for Axis Communications. “Compared to physical keys, Axis’ integration with SmartIntego offers superior security and convenience.”
"The integration of our SmartIntego wireless locks will enable a scalable access control solution that meets today’s needs," states Larissa Kaiser, Head of System Integration at SimonsVoss Technologies GmbH. SmartIntego wireless locks are embedded with integrated RFID-readers, so there’s no need for expensive or time-consuming cabling during installation. As important, the AXIS A1001 eliminates the need for power cables to wired doors and the door controller as it is a Power over Ethernet system.
