SMARTair™ brings flexible access control to a Dutch superstore SMARTair™ brings flexible access control to a Dutch superstore

Witzand has been a trusted supplier of building materials since the 1890s. Their largest retail outlet — dubbed “XL” — and head office is at Almelo, in the eastern Netherlands. Here the company designed a new building with openness in mind, to stock and display a wide range of their products, including a specialist woodwork department. The new premises also needed a brand new access control system.

A combination of SMARTair™ devices — wireless, battery-powered escutcheons, cylinders and wall readers — ensure security at the new Almelo building meets the demands of a busy mixed-use environment. Authorised employees can use offices and warehouse spaces they need; shoppers only access the retail areas of this new Witzand superstore.

"This building is our showroom and must come with a modern access control system: SMARTair™ is the right system for us,” explains Kevin Hoitink at Witzand Almelo.

 

Flexible rights management made easy

With SMARTair™ wireless access control, Witzand facility managers tailor the precise security levels they need for different areas of the building. It’s easy to manage and amend access rights for every site user, to ensure authorised employees come and go freely, while everyone else is kept out.

The Almelo installation runs via an Update on Card system, which is ideal for premises with medium to high daily user traffic. With Update on Card management, administrators can set time-limited access rights and order audit trails when needed. Strategically located wall updaters provide a link between the software and the SMARTair™-protected doors.

It’s easy even for non-specialists to manage a SMARTair™ installation with the bundled, full-featured TS1000 admin software.

Witzand’s new flagship building was awarded a score of 56.6% by the Dutch BREEAM sustainability certification program*. Its employees, customers and valuable stock are kept safe by SMARTair™.
