Secure student accommodation access with Salto Systems

Salto Systems : 07 October, 2008  (Application Story)
Welsh university campus gains secure access control system from Salto enabling a flexible keyless environment with future scalability
Secure student accommodation access with Salto Systems
The Caerleon Campus of the University of Wales Newport has chosen Salto Systems to provide secure access control for its purpose built student accommodation village. The university awarded the contract to approved Salto Inspired Business Partner Gem Security Centre.

The University of Wales, Newport was admitted to the University of Wales as a University College in April 1996 and became a full Constituent Institution of the University of Wales in 2003. Caerleon Campus is the main administrative centre for the University. It is also home to several academic schools including education, art, fashion design, media & design, and also hosts courses from the School of Health and Social Sciences and the Centre for Communiy and Life Long Learning.

"The new contract is part of a rolling program to update security and replace outdated mechanical locks and keys across campus," comments Jim Caola, MD of Gem Security Centre.

"Having security that is reliable and dependable is obviously important for a building housing so many young people. With our ability to customise both the system hardware and software, our solutions have added flexibility to the security system at the University and we have designed a highly secure and flexible access control system to meet all their needs.

The first phase has been to secure a number of main entrance doors to the student accommodation village with Salto MIFARE wall readers and online control units controlled via Salto SQL Departmental software," Caola continues.

Stephen Godber, Director of Estates at the University of Wales Newport comments: "We're very impressed with the Salto product. Its advanced system design gives us so much more control over our student accommodation security and it can easily grow to meet ongoing requirements.

We're already planning for the second phase and will be looking to expand the card system further across campus, combining the access control function with cashless vending, print and photo copying etc all wrapped into one package."
