Okanagan College commits to SALTO for accesss control

Andy Williams   ||   Sep 05, 2008  ||   ,

Okanagan College in British Columbia has become the third college in Canada to choose SALTO Systems to provide a contactless electronic access control solution. The first building to roll out the system will be the new $28 million Centre for Learning, a jointly funded project between the provincial government and the college. The facility, which is under construction, will add 22 classrooms to the campus and will be used to provide training for a wide variety of careers.

“The College, which is home to 5,000 students, chose SALTO for its flexibility and the fact that our access control would not have to be hard-wired to every door. Our ANSI stand-alone locks require no wires and are able to communicate with the SALTO software via hotspot wall readers just through normal card use,” says Amir Zouak, vice president of SALTO Systems in Canada.

SALTO will be providing a mix of perimeter and internal locking systems across campus, replacing the majority of mechanical locks in all the existing college buildings and facilities over the next several years.
