Sleek, minimalist design for any decor

Stylish and discreet electronic locking
The minimalistic design of the RFID SALTO Ælement reader looks stylish and discreet on any door. It also offers the choice of a wide range of designer lever handles and finishes.
Small, but powerful, electronic access
The SALTO XS4 Mini ANSI wire-free electronic door lock blends attractive design and sophistication with strength and smart technology for any building. A unique design that delivers an easy retrofit, the XS4 Mini is applicable to existing standard cylindrical or tubular door preparation – making it simple and fast to upgrade the traditional knob set without having to replace or drill the door.
JustIN Mobile App
Improve guest satisfaction as well as operations
JustIN Mobile replaces the need for a physical access hotel room card by securely sending a room key Over the Air (OTA) to an iOS or Android device from SALTO’s ProAccess SPACE management software. The guest’s smartphone sends a signal to open the hotel room door’s electronic lock using Bluetooth. Eliminate the need for guests to physically check in or out at the front desk while also streamlining overall hotel operations.

Retail – Robust access control is vital for efficient, successful retail store security of any size or type – boutiques or big-box stores, owner-operated restaurants or fast-food chains, banks or financial services outlets. Line managers must be freed from constant cries of “Can I have the keys?” Site managers must facilitate maintenance and deliveries, often outside of regular operating hours. Business owners must control stock and protect against fraud. Landlords must ensure only authorized personnel are on their premises. These issues and more are easily managed with SALTO keyless smart access for retail store security. SALTO makes access control simple and secure and helps retail management grant specific access for staff, suppliers, customers, delivery services, and more.

Healthcare – Healthcare facilities present unique access challenges. While they must offer a welcoming environment, often 24/7, for a constantly changing user base, they also must secure back-of-house and staff-only areas that need tight control to protect patients, staff, volunteers, visitors, and suppliers. Specific areas – operating rooms, pharmacies, laboratories, equipment closets, and the like – all have different security and accessibility needs. Of course, doors, lockers, cabinets, carts, and special medical equipment all need access control, as well. SALTO smart access solutions combine the security, protection, and flexibility that healthcare facilities require. Plus, SALTO’s use of BioCote® antimicrobial silver ion technology contributes to a more hygienic environment.

SALTO Named Commander in Prestigious 2021 Access Control Index
SALTO Systems has been named a Commander in the prestigious Access Control Index (ACI), a quantitative and qualitative report of 40 leading physical access control software manufacturers. Commanders, like SALTO, demonstrate longevity and future-proof solutions.
The ACI, facilitated by Group337’s security industry experts, provides an annual report that helps end-users, investors, contractors, and the manufacturers themselves make an assessment and answer the question: “Is my access control system set up for today and tomorrow?”
“As a Commander that placed among the top three performers in the 40 evaluated companies, SALTO is proud that the Access Control Index recognizes our comprehensive access control solutions, the effort we put into research and development, and our commitment to providing our customers with a solution that will meet or exceed their security needs today and tomorrow,” said SALTO North America Marketing Director Steve Burk.
Group337 and its unbiased industry leaders used a qualitative, proprietary analysis method of 70 points of data, both publicly and privately available information, and industry expert assessments to develop the Access Control Index. Group337 weighed the data points and plotted them based on technology, market reach, talent, innovation engines, marketing and overall performance. “It Factor” was also used as a criteria in the overall assessment.
“This validation from the Access Control Index is a testament to SALTO’s commitment to our customers and partners,” said Burk. “We make a commitment that when a partner or salesperson recommends SALTO, the customer can rest assured that SALTO will be there years from now to build upon the foundation they have invested in. Additionally, they can count on continuous updating and improvement in products that have already been purchased.”
