ASSA, part of Security Solutions, a division of ASSA ABLOY UK, has launched a KeyPad escutcheon that features multi-factor authentication, providing extra security for its SMARTair™ wireless access control system.

SMARTair™ is a door management system that allows sophisticated proximity access control using minimal wire-free door units.

3 Levels Of User Authentication

The new KeyPad escutcheon offers three levels of user authentication: it can be opened by 4-digit code, by RFID-enabled smartcard, or can require both to permit access.

With no wiring required, thanks to the various communication technologies available between the reader and administration software, the bolt-on SMARTair™ unit and KeyPad escutcheon can easily be installed onto virtually any mechanical door, minimizing disruption to the day-to-day operations of buildings.

Using standard batteries, rather than a mains power connection, SMARTair™ solutions keep maintenance and installation costs to a minimum.

Illuminated Keypad

For ease of use in low light, the escutcheon features an illuminated keypad, glowing blue when the user is entering a code, green when access is permitted, and red when entry is refused.

Nojmol Islam, New Technologies Category Manager at Security Solutions, said: “The new SMARTair™ KeyPad escutcheon has a sleek, brushed steel design that blends in with the aesthetics of modern offices, educational establishments and healthcare facilities, whilst pertaining the serious security features associated with SMARTair™.”


Easy Integration Of Every Lock Into One Access System

“SMARTair™ makes it easy to integrate every lock into one single, secure access system, even incorporating lifts, vending machines and lockers across multiple sites. A number of administrators have told us how much easier managing security has been for them, since installing SMARTair™. The escutcheon adds an extra dimension of flexibility and security for users and building owners.”

SMARTair™ is compatible with all leading RFID technologies, including iCLASS® by HID, MIFARE™ Classic and DESFire™.
