SALTO’s access control system chosen to protect St Paul’s College in Sydney
SALTO’s access control system chosen to protect St Paul’s College in Sydney

SALTO GEO (Global Electronic Opening) cylinder was selected to be installed at the college The customer St Paul's College in Sydney, Australia, is an all-male Anglican residential college and affiliated with the University of Sydney. Founded in 1856, it is Australia's oldest university college and has nearly 200 residents, of whom about 150 are undergraduates; with the remainder being graduates undertaking further study or holding university positions. The college has a substantial tutorial program and uses the principle of peer tutoring, a development of the idea of ‘peer assisted study’. Nearly all tutors are students in college, and most of them are undergraduates, at most a year or two further advanced than their class. As a result university work is drawn to the centre of college life, and teaching and intellectual leadership is part of the mainstream conversation. The organization of the tutorial system is largely in the hands of students, under the supervision of the Senior Tutor. Social networking is also used by the students to supplement teaching. Background The buildings at St Paul's College date from the late 1850’s up through to those constructed in the 1960’s, 1970’s and 1990’s. There had been many changes to the locking installations over the years meaning the college had ongoing problems with students loosing keys giving them the expense of having to replace locks and keys on a regular basis. This meant that security could have the potential to be compromised at times, making it difficult to ensure the safety of students and their assets. After all, a College or residence building can be a tempting target for opportunistic thieves as many students, besides money and credit cards, can often have a variety of expensive electronic equipment with them including laptop computers, mobile phones, iPods and so on. Recognizing that effective protection against such risks would require an extensive overhaul of their security equipment and procedures, the College decided the answer was to remove mechanical cylinders and keys from their buildings and replace them with a modern electronic access control system. Choosing a solution “When I first met David Rees of SALTO Systems at a conference I told him about our challenge of wanting to upgrade security but that we needed something suitable for our heritage doors dating from 1858. At that time his response was “I can’t help yet, but we are about to launch a product that is exactly what you want” says Derek Watt, Executive Manager at St Paul’s College in Sydney. “That product was the SALTO GEO (Global Electronic Opening) cylinder” comments David Rees, Managing Director SALTO Systems Australia Pty Ltd. The mechanical cylinders across the College site were replaced with SALTO’s GEO RIM cylinders “Derek explained to me that the mechanical lock installation within the College was not providing the level of protection or security required to manage the access movement of the students. To achieve this a more robust product was required, one which would not only offer a greater degree of physical protection but also provide a full complement of modern access control benefits including smart fob operation, audit trail information, flexible calendars, auto locking and unlocking and so on. Given the fact that the College was designed by one of Australia’s most well-known architects, Edmund Blackett, who also designed one of the major cathedrals in Sydney and the University of Sydney, this heritage aspect also created special demands for the installation of the access control system needed to provide control over entry to and movement within the College.” SALTO GEO proved the ideal solution as it has been specially designed and developed for use with doors where normal escutcheons cannot be fitted or are not allowed i.e. on certain types of fire doors, some multipoint locking systems or, as in this case, antique doors in historic or listed buildings. GEO locks can be fully integrated with the full SALTO platform, and are a versatile, cost effective solution. They incorporate SALTO’s patented Data-On-Card SVN (SALTO Virtual Network) which can manage many thousands or even millions of individual doors and users if necessary. This allows the stand-alone cylinders and locks to upload, store and download the latest access information as people use their RFID fobs around the College. The canceled fob list can be updated, key fobs can be canceled and audit trail reports can be downloaded in both wire free or wireless environments depending on the locks selected. All of which gives the College additional security and operating benefits compared to standard locking systems. Deployment With a decision made and a contract awarded, SALTO partner W. F. O’Brien Pty Ltd, one of Sydney's leading door and access control specialists, began the job of removing the 200 plus mechanical cylinders from across the College site and replacing them with GEO RIM cylinders, which are designed to fit most doors that are equipped with surface mounted lock cases. Chris Drake of W. F. O’Brien’s  says “David Rees and I had looked carefully at the layout of the College and noted the position and condition of the various doors to make sure we fully understood what the customer wanted, and then planned the rolling replacement of the locks in a structured manner. "Now the College operates an easy to use, proven, future proof access control security solution that provides 24/7 critical security protection" Installation was straightforward, with no unforeseen surprises that can sometimes occur when working with older doors and properties. Now the College operates an easy to use, proven, future proof access control security solution that provides 24/7 critical security protection. The end result is a solution that the customer loves, the students find easy to use and that the heritage architect is very happy with.” Results and development potential Due to the installation of their SALTO GEO system, St Paul’s College in Sydney now has a reliable and effective solution for ensuring security across its campus. Derek Watt, Executive Manager at St Paul’s College in Sydney concludes “If you want to keep ahead of the game, you need to be doing innovative things – especially from the security point of view. With the technology we have now, we are both more discreet and more secure. It has so far proven robust in the hands of young men aged between 18-23 and our housekeeping staff now have individual key fobs coded for access limited by both area of the College and time of day. Overall we’re very pleased with the efficiency of the SALTO product. It has maintained the aesthetic integrity of our heritage doors while giving us the control we wanted, with the added flexibility to easily grow to meet any additional future security requirements we may have.”

Aperio® enables security managers at the new Hyatt to monitor doors remotely  A new 5-star hotel in Dubai’s Healthcare City, the Hyatt Regency Dubai Creek Heights has 464 luxury rooms spread over 34 floors. It caters to both business and leisure travellers. The hotel required a new electronic access control system for its non-public facing areas, including administrative back-office space. The job demanded premium build quality that is found throughout all Hyatt Regency properties. Key Requirements Included: Electronic locks that would integrate seamlessly with the Gallagher access control system installed at the hotel.   A full range of both online and offline locks that could be deployed where appropriate.   Locks that are wireless, and with a design that would work alongside the contemporary layout of the new commercial areas.   Reliable technical and customer support from both ASSA ABLOY and a local system integrator.   Cost-effective solution to meet project budgets. Hyatt required both online and offline locks to do different jobs on different doors. To date, local system integrator Al Futtaim Technologies has installed 25 Aperio® online E100 escutcheons and over 50 offline E900 escutcheons. Aperio® enables security managers at the new Hyatt to monitor doors remotely; to open doors wirelessly; and to create audit trails for specific doors on demand. Aperio® Wireless Escutcheons Component design was crucial in choosing Aperio®. Attractive Aperio® escutcheons were selected to complement the contemporary, luxurious feel of the Hyatt’s decor. All Aperio® escutcheons are wireless, so there’s no ugly cabling to spoil the aesthetics and installation is quick and affordable — helping to keep the project within budget. Integration with Gallagher’s access control system was also crucial. Gallagher’s Aperio® integration is seamless, as ASSA ABLOY demonstrated live in Dubai at 2015’s Intersec exhibition. Another official OEM partner, x-Plan, integrates the offline Aperio® E900 escutcheons at the new Hyatt. Aperio® Locks To Flexible Upgrade It is easy to incorporate additional Aperio® locks into the same security system, should the hotel need them. Access control at Dubai’s new Hyatt Regency is future-proofed. For more on how Aperio® can protect your premises, see www.assaabloy.co.uk/aperiowirelesslocks
