A new SMARTair® wireless escutcheon boosts security even at your high-traffic doors

London, February 2021 — Heavily used interior and exterior doors need an access solution that’s both robust and intelligent. The new SMARTair i-max Escutcheon from ASSA ABLOY ensures only authorised users pass through these doors, via a range of credentials including virtual keys stored on a smartphone. Fast, wire-free installation makes it easy to implement or extend a SMARTair access control system in any building.

This new wireless escutcheon with inbuilt RFID reader and Bluetooth compatibility handles the punishment of high-traffic, frequent-use doors. It meets standard EN 1906 Category of use: Grade 4 for robustness — the highest level, recommended for doors “which are subject to frequent violent use”*.

This hard-wearing, resistant build quality makes the SMARTair escutcheon ideal for busy doors at education establishments like universities and schools; healthcare sites including hospitals and nursing homes; offices and coworking spaces; apartment complexes and multifamily residences; and public institutions like government buildings, sports centres and libraries. Its robust design, redefined aesthetics and wire-free installation are perfect for these high-traffic environments — facilities with busy students and teachers, or doctors, nurses, visitors and subcontractors always on the move. The SMARTair i-max escutcheon is also available with an antibacterial coating, for healthcare and other sterile settings.

The new escutcheon is battery powered and works with all standard proximity credential technologies, including MIFARE®, DESFire and iCLASS®. An optional integrated PINpad provides the opportunity to add another layer of security with multi-factor authentication. You can specify individual doors to open with PIN verification or credential verification — or to require both.

An escutcheon for style and sturdiness

The new i-max sacrifices none of its style in pursuit of functionality. The new escutcheon comes in a variety of contemporary finishes and handle options — with up to 16 different combinations. A multi-coloured LED gives visual warning signals at a glance. This new SMARTair escutcheon fits glass, wooden or aluminium doors — including fire and emergency exit doors — and is available for Scandinavian, Euro, Finnish and Australasian door profiles.

The new escutcheon is compatible with all SMARTair system management options: Standalone, for basic access control functionality; Update on Card; Openow and Pro Wireless Online, for real-time management of every door and system user.

Mobile solutions

The i-max escutcheon also offers another way to open doors: the SMARTair Mobile App to open doors remotely and the SMARTair OpenowTM  mobile app.

With Openow, users no longer carry separate card or fob credentials. Instead, their smartphone stores secure virtual keys which can be issued, amended or cancelled at any time. So, users no longer need to waste time collecting or validating an access card to open doors locked with a new SMARTair i-max escutcheon. With Openow, if you have your phone, you are already carrying your keys.
