In an emergency, could you lock down access to your entire premises quickly and safely?

London – July 2022, Situations can arise when a facility manager needs to lock down their premises remotely. With mechanical security this is, of course, impossible. Likewise, many existing wireless electronic access control systems do not have the ability to lock down efficiently — or even at all.

SMARTair Wireless Online access control helps facility managers sleep better at night: Not only can they lock down from anywhere; they can do so intelligently — opening, closing or maintaining access to individual doors or zones to deal with the emergency.

With a single, global command, doors equipped with SMARTair devices may be set to Block Mode: They only unlock with a specific credential. Aside from designated staff, no one on-site gets to move around freely.

Alternatively, Emergency Close can lock all openings remotely and simultaneously. An authorized credential may still unlock them.

As a third option, every device can be set to Emergency Open, which unlocks them all. This could provide fire services with instant access to a whole building or site, for example.

Fine-grained Lockdown controls

SMARTair gives facility managers different ways to lock down. Global Lockdown may be initiated from SMARTair’s software interface or Web Manager. It can also be activated via an emergency push-button connected to a SMARTair HUB.

In addition, Lockdown does not need to be an all-or-nothing choice. SMARTair enables fine-grained control down to the level of an individual door, if required.

A facility manager can pre-define over 250 different lockdown zones. In any emergency, they choose whether to lock down a whole zone or just specific doors. This level of control could protect people and valuable assets — or in extreme situations, even save lives.

With the control provided by SMARTair’s Global Lockdown feature, managers can be confident building users have the highest level of protection against the unexpected.

The SMARTair advantage

With intuitive management software and battery-powered locks for almost any application, a SMARTair system is easy to install and convenient to use. It can handle a large number of users and offers a choice of credentials, including standard RFID cards, tags and fobs along with Mobile Keys via the SMARTair Openow app.

The system is more cost-efficient to run than wired access control, which needs mains electricity, or traditional mechanical security, where locks must be managed manually and individually.

Doors require minimal alterations when SMARTair devices are fitted because no cabling is required.

With the broad range of SMARTair devices — escutcheons, cylinders, locks and a wall reader — plus flexible control from the SMARTair software, facility managers run their site efficiently and safely, even in an emergency.
