Not Just a Guestroom Lock
SALTO Systems Access Control has been available to the commercial market since 2001. Through foresight and innovation for more than 15 years, it's one of the original pioneers and leaders in RFID technology. This is why Heathrow Airport, Princeton University and several U.S. military bases have chosen SALTO for security. SALTO has never offered a magnetic card system due to security issues that arose in the 1990s. SALTO has almost 3 million RFID locks installed in more than 90 countries, with over 15 million users on more than 17,000 projects. The company’s entry into the hospitality market has given it the opportunity to become a full-service provider that includes back of house RFID locks, padlocks, cylinder locks, locker locks and any type of access point to offer full security to more than just guestroom doors.
This is the primary reason Rosen Hotels and Resorts chose SALTO for more than 6,300 guestroom locks in its seven resorts, with over 2,000 online devices and more than 1,400 back of house access doors.

SALTO SVN – SALTO Virtual Network
Other hotel locking systems offer stand-alone or online wireless solutions. SALTO Systems are never stand-alone. They only offer a network and wireless solution. The SALTO Virtual Network (SVN) allows locks not communicating online/real time to report to a central system that has a deferred time, data-on-card solution. The SVN sends the transmission to and from the lock to a networked hotspot, reporting not only battery levels but also time/date stamping on every door touched by a staff member, on a daily shift basis. In SVN, all data is stored on and distributed by its operating 4K RFID chip credential. SALTO provides the flexibility for an access control system to grow from a small number of doors and users to a large number of access points.

Salto Wireless Online
SALTO’s online wireless system communication offers real-time polling of locks and access points every 8 seconds. This allows for features such as door ajar, room changes and extended-stay commands. SALTO can network through gateways and nodes, and also has the ability to ride on someone else’s network, such as online energy management or room control business partners. SALTO locks hold 1,000 audits and can be interrogated by means of a portable programming device (PPD).

SALTO's BLE-based solution, JustIN Mobile, is an app that allows guests to use their smartphone as a room key. This allows the encoding of a guest’s smartphone upon check-in as opposed to using a key. It sends the information to the guest’s phone via an app, allowing them to go directly to their room without visiting the front desk. SALTO integrates with most other hotel corporate brands and independent apps.

Standard in all SALTO Locks
SALTO offers the following technology as standard in all locks:
  • Bluetooth (BLE)
  • RFID (radio frequency identification)
  • NFC technology (near-field communication)
  • Integration with third-party systems; compatible with many systems such as time and attendance, CCTV and property management systems
