Smartair Electronic Lock Retrofits To Existing Door Locks

Battery powered low cost locking system provides user monitoring capability and can be easily fitted to existing locks without extensive wiring
Smartair Electronic Lock Retrofits To Existing Door Locks
Ironmongery and door hardware manufacturer Assa has launched an intelligent electronic device with ease of use at the heart of its design.

The company, a manufacturer for education and healthcare security applications has revealed Smartair, a battery-powered unit which features sophisticated user monitoring capability and provides a convenient and secure locking system.

Smartair is a 'bolt on' solution for use on all doors and in many cases can be retrofitted to existing locks and key systems, reducing the inconvenience and cost of hardwiring a full access control system.

Among the first to benefit from Smartair are the elderly residents at Prescott House, a supported housing development in Burgess Hill. Residents had been living with the more traditional lock and key to access their homes, which some were struggling with due to physical frailties.

With the new Smartair system, installed by Assa security centre Keyhole Security, residents simply hold their card up to the reader placed on the front door to gain access to their home, removing the need to struggle with a key.

Reliant on smartcard technology, Smartair can be adapted according to user requirements through PC software and allows cards to be encoded via an encoder or, for ease of use, to be updated automatically.

Designed to meet the challenging security needs faced by public buildings, Smartair can be fitted with an internal thumbturn or key override, allowing the door to be deadlocked on the inside for additional security and peace of mind. In addition, Smartair is certified for use on fire doors to BS EN 1634-1:2000 and meets the requirements of Document M and BS 8300.

Assa products, including Smartair, are available in the UK from the operating company, Assa Abloy Door Solutions, and nationwide via Assa Security Centres - a network of professional locksmiths and security installation companies.

Lorna Ardern, product manager with Assa Abloy Door Solutions, said: "Smartair's intelligent design bridges the gap between mechanical security and traditional access control. As with all Assa products, Smartair provides a safe, secure and convenient locking solution with end-user needs in mind."
