Austria’s Vienna University of Economics and Business has chosen to electronically secure some 4,500-access points across its campus with the help of ESSECCA GmbH, the Austrian distributor of SALTO Systems.
ESSECCA and SALTO designed and implementedg a physical access control system for campus buildings and rooms. The system serves about 64,000 people with different and changing access rights.
The centerpiece of SALTO’s system is an interface for an external database, specifically tailored for Vienna University. With this interface, all personal data and access rights are automatically transferred into the access control system in real-time during registration.
The system includes 2,500 off-line access points equipped with SALTO’s XS4 electronic locks. Additionally, the system features 500 online access points with XS4 electronic wireless locks and 80 gateways.
ESSECCA developed the interface that automates access control, as well as supplied all door components – electronic and mechanical locks, panic bars, electronic and mechanical escutcheons – integrated controllers and coordinated the installation process.
The project is valued at €492 million and spans six new complexes – each consisting of multiple buildings – on the Vienna University campus.
SALTO’s SVN platform underpins the company’s suite of standalone networked lock solutions, enabling for online and real-time access control. SALTO hardware and software solutions can be networked without the use of wires and can provide real-time intelligence and control to improve the access control management functions.
