A digital lock is a specific type of lock that replaces traditional mechanical locks. It utilizes electronic components to control access and provide security. They typically do not require physical keys for entry and offer convenience, enhanced security features, and keyless entry options. Digital locks can operate using various methods, such as:

  • radio-frequency identification (RFID)
  • key cards
  • pin codes
  • fingerprints
  • smartphones
  • other electronic means.

On the other hand, an electronic security system like Salto refers to a broader concept that encompasses various interconnected electronic components and devices designed to protect a property or premises.

An electronic security system can include multiple elements, such as:

  • access control systems
  • surveillance cameras (CCTV)
  • alarm systems
  • motion sensors
  • intercom systems

Why use electronic security

  1. Asset Protection – from both internal and external theft: An access control system allows you to control who can enter restricted areas of your premises, reducing the risk of theft and unauthorized access. By providing authorized personnel with keycards, keypad PINs, or other access credentials, you can ensure that only authorized individuals can access valuable assets, sensitive information, or restricted areas, enhancing overall asset protection.


  1. 24/7 Home and Workplace Safety Monitoring: Access control systems are often integrated with surveillance cameras and security monitoring systems, enabling continuous monitoring of your home or workplace. This round-the-clock surveillance helps detect and deter potential security threats, ensuring the safety of your premises at all times.


  1. Instant Security Alerts to Your Smartphone: Modern access control systems can be connected to your smartphone or other mobile devices, allowing you to receive instant security alerts in real-time. These alerts can notify you about any unauthorized access attempts, suspicious activities, or security breaches, enabling you to take immediate action or notify the authorities promptly.


  1. Conflict Resolution – Valuable Evidence from Security Cameras and Access Control Systems: Access control systems are often integrated with security cameras, providing valuable evidence in the event of conflicts or incidents. By combining access logs and video footage, you can accurately track and identify individuals involved in any security-related issues, aiding in conflict resolution and providing evidence for legal purposes if required.


  1. Extra Protection of Restricted and Vulnerable Areas: Access control systems allow you to establish different access levels and restrictions based on the needs of your premises. This helps provide an additional layer of protection for restricted and vulnerable areas, such as server rooms, storage facilities, or sensitive areas within a building. Only authorized personnel with the proper credentials can gain access, reducing the risk of unauthorized entry or tampering.
