SECURITY Vision has been awarded the latest extension to Rouse Hill Anglican College’s Salto access control solution. The extension will take the Salto wireless door count to more than 200.
Rouse Hill Anglican College is an Anglican co-educational school for students from Kindergarten to Year 12 and was using mechanical keys to control access into different buildings and classrooms. However, if keys were lost that meant the expense of cutting new keys and sometimes having to replace the lock as well. To eliminate the necessity and cost of this, it was decided to upgrade security to a keyless electronic access control solution.
“We looked at several systems that could do the job but after a presentation by local security specialists, Independent Locksmiths and Security, we could see SALTO was a great solution and were happy to go with their recommendation of it” said property manager, John Binney.
“Our new SALTO access control system provides us with good effective security. We particularly like its SVN operating system and the fact that the RFID cards give us multi-application capability for as and when we want to use it.”
According to Ryan McGovern of Independent Locksmiths, when the team explained to the college that SALTO Australia had an established base of school and college customers to whom they provide security, access control and campus management they wanted to know more.
“A demonstration of SALTO’s ability to control access, download audit trail information in real time, delete users remotely and securely, lock and unlock doors remotely and collect lock battery status for maintenance sealed the deal,” McGovern said.
“After the expansion there will be 200 SALTO XS4 offline electronic handle sets together with a small number of CU50ENSVN (SALTO Virtual Network) controllers in the administration area, as well as into classrooms and offices throughout the college.”
