Access control management for the city of Saint Avertin

In 2010, Saint-Avertin's Local Authority opted for Locken's solution to improve access management at all the city's sites, including the town hall, police station, sports centres, historic buildings and media library. In 2017, they chose the Bluetooth version of the new contactless electronic key. This leading-edge technology overcomes the issue of dust and foreign body build-up in cylinders, preventing doors from opening. Police Chief Laurent Lacour explains:

This decision marks a very positive step forward, firstly because the new key opens the cylinder almost instantly. The difference is absolutely incredible and a real godsend in everyday use. Above all, the MyLocken app allows the key to communicate with the central management system via a smartphone, which offers a major security boost and accurate control over access rights

“The new-generation keys have another major advantage for our city,” says Christophe Fort, Head of Security in Saint-Avertin. “They’re fitted with an RFID module that serves as a badge. This system has helped bring our sports equipment under tighter control as club members have access, but this access must be regulated. We couldn’t have issued keys to hundreds or even thousands of users, but everyone can have a badge.”

As an additional security measure, badge readers in each building only work if access to the site has already been unlocked by an electronic key belonging to a local officer or association manager.

This is the exact premise behind the Locken electronic access control system: to create new possibilities for new applications.

Induction technology: major innovation

Locken’s electronic key access control solution is based on the contactless induction technology patented by the Iseo Group. Advantages for the user include the fastest opening times of any wireless access control system and exceptional ruggedness with no contact between the key and cylinder.
