Additions to the XS4 2.0 Platform
Salto XS4 One is the latest evolution of the XS4 Original model and is part of the new XS4 2.0 platform design line. Smart, secure, innovative and easy to install, the XS4 One electronic escutcheon sets need no hard wiring and provide a totally wire-free networked electronic locking solution. It integrates the latest technology in mobile access and wireless locks including BLE + NFC mobile technologies. It features new generation micro controllers, increased memory capacity and its new built-in reader design makes it suitable for indoor and outdoor installation (IP56 Certified) and clearly indicates if access is granted or denied.
It comes in seven great finishes, including a BioCote Antimicrobial technology finish, and also provides for easy retrofit of existing Salto escutcheons as it has the same drilling template as Salto Comfort and XS4 Original models.
Combining BLE and NFC Capabilities
On the stand will be a groundbreaking new version Salto’s class leading JustIN Mobile solution combining BLE and NFC capabilities in a single app. With just a single app, depending on the type of mobile phone used, it will activate its BLE or NFC element, enabling users to open doors just by presenting the smart phone to the BLE or Mifare equipped handle set, cylinder, wall reader, etc.
The secure encrypted technology is compatible with iOS (BLE) and Android (BLE and NFC) and users can receive their access rights instantly and remotely. No need for any infrastructure, or any wireless handle sets. All that’s needed is a 3G connection to the smart phone. It automatically detects if a door is Bluetooth or NFC equipped and then uses its secure encrypted technology to open the door – even if the user has multiple access rights to several doors across different sites in the app.
The app also provides a powerful online system wherever the user is, converting any Salto handle set to an online handle set as its bi-directional communication transmits audit trail and handle set battery status back to the operating system. It even sends the blacklist to the handle set, eliminating any cancelled cards or smart phones if they are used, even if the door is off-line – making this the most innovative, powerful, complete and user friendly mobile solution on the market.
