ASSA ABLOY unveils SMARTair i-max wireless escutcheon

Designed for both interior and exterior doors requiring a robust and intelligent access system, the new SMARTair i-max Escutcheon from ASSA ABLOY is said to provide fast, wire-free installation and works with a range of credentials, including virtual keys.

ASSAAbloy-SmartAirMaxi-21The wireless escutcheon with inbuilt RFID reader and Bluetooth compatibility is designed to handle high-traffic, frequent-use doors. It meets standard EN 1906 Category of use: Grade 4 for robustness — the highest level, recommended for doors “which are subject to frequent violent use”.

The hard-wearing, resistant build quality is said to make the SMARTair escutcheon ideal for busy doors at education establishments, healthcare sites, offices and coworking spaces, multi-occupant residences, and public institutions like government buildings, sports centres and libraries.

The SMARTair i-max escutcheon is also available with an antibacterial coating, for healthcare and other sterile settings.

The new escutcheon is battery powered and works with all standard proximity credential technologies, including MIFARE, DESFire and iCLASS. An optional integrated PINpad provides the opportunity to add another layer of security with multi-factor authentication. Users can specify individual doors to open with PIN verification or credential verification — or to require both.

The product comes in a variety of contemporary finishes and handle options — with up to 16 different combinations, while a multi-coloured LED gives visual warning signals. It fits glass, wooden or aluminium doors — including fire and emergency exit doors — and is available for Scandinavian, Euro, Finnish and Australasian door profiles.

The device is compatible with all SMARTair system management options: Standalone, for basic access control functionality; Update on Card; Openow and Pro Wireless Online, for real-time management of all door and system users.

In addition, the i-max escutcheon works with the SMARTair Mobile App to open doors remotely and the SMARTair Openow mobile app, allowing users to utilise credentials stored on a smartphone.
