Genetec Synergis Supports SALTO SVN-Enabled Locks

The Genetec Synergis™ IP access control system supports popular wireless locks from SALTO with SALLIS wireless technology.
Published: September 29, 2017

Genetec Inc., a provider of open architecture security and public safety solutions, announces that Genetec Synergis, the company’s Security Center IP access control system, can now manage SALTO’s stand-alone battery-operated locks with the support of SALTO Virtual Network technology.

The announcement means that Synergis customers can now cost-effectively replace tradi-tional mechanical locks with Salto SVN-enabled locks to secure doors and entrances that previously may have been too expensive to network with either wired or wireless locks. Using RFID technology, SALTO SVN standalone locks communicate with a central server by using a smart data-on-card system as their network — all access data is stored on and distributed by the keycard.

When presenting the keycard to an offline standalone door, locker, cabinet or server rack, not only does this control access rights to that door but, thanks to two-way communication, the door also writes data like access rights, blacklist information or battery status back onto the card. The keycard then transmits this information back to Synergis via online wall readers that are able to update and receive information from the cards from anywhere in the building.

SALTO also supports locks including the XS4 range of escutcheons, electronic cylinders, and the entire SALTO platform.
