Centralised lock configuration and access control

SimonsVoss Technologies : 08 May, 2008  (New Product)
Assigning personnel to specific lock access becomes much easier with Virtual WaveNet from SimonsVoss allowing time specific access to be assigned to part time personnel
Users of SimonsVoss locking systems will soon be able to issue specific time-limited access authorisations for all doors in a controlled system, without having to individually configure each cylinder. Simons Voss presents Virtual WaveNet, a new and innovative solution that enables digital keys or 'transponders' to be used as the medium for transmitting information to the relevant locking cylinders. This new solution enables facility managers to assign access to part-time personnel, cleaning staff or service technicians, for example, to defined areas for a certain period of time.

As a global technology leader, SimonsVoss supplies companies and organisations with completely wireless locking and access technologies. The core products of the '3060' digital locking and access control system are a digital locking cylinder and a radio-based transponder. The transponder replaces conventional keys and will open doors, gates and barriers, depending on individual access authorisation, at the touch of a button and via radio.

Up till now, wireless networking of the individual components of the digital locking system required a radio network. With Virtual WaveNet, all that is needed is a gateway module that personnel must pass by at a central control point, for example at the entrance to a site.

Transponders take the data to be transmitted from the gateway module and, when utilised by the user, forward it to the components of the locking system. This system eliminates the need to invest in network components for wireless or wired data transmission. Previously, user authorisation data in electronic offline locking systems had to be transferred to the digital locking cylinders using a manual programming device, handheld device or laptop. Simply using transponders is a cost-effective and time-saving method of transmitting the data to a locking system without having to set up a network. The Virtual WaveNet concept from SimonsVoss is designed in line with the highest security standards and enables the user to check at any time whether all data has been correctly sent.

Every time a registration is made on a gateway module, the transponder is activated for a defined time period. Once this predefined period has elapsed, the transponder can no longer be used anywhere in the system. This makes it possible to assign visitors different access times from employees, cleaning staff or service technicians.

If no registration is made on a gateway module, the transponder will not open any more doors. This ensures that all transponders in the system are used for data transmission and are activated for the authorisation period.

This particular concept also has the advantage that if a transponder is lost, it simply needs to be blocked at the Virtual Gateway. There is no need to make a circuit of all doors to delete the data for lost or stolen transponders.
