Hilton Resort - Barbados

Project Summary

Replacing over 300 door locks spread throughout rooms, suites and back of house areas. KSS was tasked with providing a robust and integrated access control system that did not require an abundance of new cabling, but would still allow locks, key cards and audit trails to be updated automatically, user profiles to be changed rapidly, and a high level of security maintained in line with the Hilton Brand.

Integrated Security

Brands Used

Salto XS4 SVN access control system was chosen. It allows stand-alone locks to read, receive and write information via an encrypted and secure data-on-card system that utilizes the capabilities of RFID read/write technology. In SVN all access data is stored on and distributed by its operating smartcard. When presenting a smartcard to an offline stand-alone door, not only does this control access rights to that door but thanks to two-way communication, the door also writes data like blacklist information or battery status back to the smartcard. The smartcard then transmits this information back to the server via online wall readers that are able to update and receive information from the cards anytime and anywhere in the building.
