One of Hong Kong's premier property developers VCC Land, a real estate investment, development and management group specialising in developing and operating boutique apartments under the 'V Serviced Apartments' brand has installed access control from Salto Systems into all their properties.

Brand V takes existing apartment blocks in desirable Hong Kong locations and completely re-models them into luxurious, state-of-the-art contemporary living spaces equipped with top-of-the range home comforts and hi-tech entertainment appliances. The best apartments also boast panoramic city views, and automatic skylights that open at the push of a button.

David Rees, Asia Pacific Regional Manager for Salto Systems SL, says: "V Serviced Apartments needed an intelligent security system to manage multiple sites and secure all doors quickly and easily. The system they chose not only had to be aesthetically sharp to match their design ideals, but also had to have built-in scalability to ensure it met their future requirements too. Salto met the brief on all counts."

Installation of some 208 Salto XS4 comfort and e-cylinder locks, together with wall and lift readers has been carried out by local Salto HK business partner Barwin Metal, and these now control main entrance, lift and individual apartment access at V locations in Happy Valley, Wanchai and Causeway Bay and Causeway Bay. All properties also feature independent databases running Salto Hotel Access Management (HAMS) 500 software.

The external entrance doors on the properties are controlled using Salto Mifare on-line wall readers. Once inside, access to the lifts is controlled via their own off-line readers, with further access to individual apartments being via off-line XS4 comfort or e-cylinder locks.

Alfred Wai, Sales Manager for Barwin Metal, says: "Clients using the V Serviced Apartments demand the very best, and do not expect compromises with access or security issues. Salto smart solutions make installation easy, so the XS4 access system was developed with the needs of such individuals in mind. The system also features a range of hospitality-specific applications that allow us to restrict access to and within the properties to authorised persons only at all times, ensuring we provide the very best secure living, working and relaxing environment possible."

V Serviced Apartments say: "An effective and robust access control system is an important requirement for all our properties in the V portfolio. Our security system has to be extremely reliable 24/7 and it needs to be easy to use and maintain. After extensive evaluation of a number of different products we found that Salto, over that of several competitors, offered the optimal solution for our needs.'
