AElement the new face of RFID hotel security technology from SALTO
Developed specifically for the hotel market, Aelement allows you to integrate all your physical security needs into one stylish, energy efficient, reliable wire-free system. It enables hoteliers to control the security of their entire building, grant access privileges to individual rooms and gather audit trail data from every door - all without leaving the front desk.
And thanks to SALTO's new WiDNA technology, you no longer have to choose between the on-line and off-line world. All Aelement locks are designed to be wireless ready right out of the box, users simply choose whether the functionality is activated or not.
All you need to do is choose the mode of operation you want "Wireless on-line" or "Wireless ready". If you choose "Wireless on-line" your locks are on-line and communicate in real time with the server. This gives you real time control over the entire property. If you chose "Wireless ready", your locks communicate with the server daily on differed-time communication mode. Wireless ready locks can be "switched" to real time "Wireless on-line mode" at any time. Just plug in the USB-sized RF communication antenna and you are ready to go.
The backbone of the system is a series of gateways and repeaters that act as antennas, collecting and sending information from the computer server directly to the wireless locks. One gateway can manage several electronic locks as well as repeaters, minimizing infrastructure costs and maximizing flexibility.
It operates on a 2.4GHz wireless network over an 802.15.4 protocol and works with every popular mainstream RFID technology such as Mifare and Desfire, the latest versions of Mifare Plus and Desfire EV1, as well as with standard low cost hotel guest cards. And thanks to its automated "self healing" capabilities plus SALTO patented SVN™ network redundancy, if Aelement should lose RF connection at any time it will automatically scan for a new connection to an alternative gateway or repeater, restoring communication and maintaining security.

For staff management it can provide on-line staff tracking, real time monitoring, dynamic master key functionality and instant master card cancellation. All master cards are uniquely assigned to the specific individual, and have no limitations to how a locking plan is conceived. The card does not need to belong to a group and you can also centrally authorize any card at random and list doors or zones with no need for grouping.
There is also no need to issue and collect staff cards every day. Staff cards can be programmed not to work at night (outside their individual time shift) and can be centrally cancelled at will at a moments notice, and changes to the locking schedule can be made on the fly, with no need to manually re-program locks or re-issue cards.
But Aelement also has more to offer. Not only is it a secure, easy to use access control system that's packed with technology, it's also a stunning piece of design too.
The minimalistic design of its RFID reader looks stylish and discreet on any door. It is available in two contemporary colours, Pearl Black and Ice White, and can be combined with a wide range of designer handles, including a selection from Italian manufacturer Olivari exclusive to SALTO, to make a bold statement that will complement and enhance the interior design of any hotel.
