There is a growing need for the convenience and accessibility of highly secure keyless access solutions – either as an addition to existing workflows or as a standalone solution. Especially in remote areas or situations where carrying a physical key can bring the possibility of corruption or even danger for the holder, a mobile solution is also in demand.
“BEAT is part of the ongoing ‘keyvolution,’ heralding a new era of effortless connectivity, without a physical key. Yet there are no keyless locks. The key has just taken on some new forms. It is encrypted with the most advanced Seos credential technology, developed by HID Global. Used with your mobile device, the digital key provides best-in-class security and privacy protection,” said Jorma Issakainen, vice president, ABLOY Critical Infrastructure.
“The ABLOY BEAT is perfect for critical infrastructure projects in the U.S. market,” said Jerry Burhans, managing director of ABLOY USA. “The market has yet to see a road tested brand like ABLOY unveil a durable and solid product for the critical infrastructure market. We know our product will fit the need as ABLOY continues to focus on the voice of the customer to drive us to deliver dependable and robust solutions.”
BEAT is designed especially for professional physical protection of critical infrastructure, businesses and industry sites. While securing property, it also offers customers improved operational efficiency, reducing logistics and costs. It also saves on fuel emissions, making it a sustainable option. The solution is intended to be used in sectors like telecom and data centers, transportation and logistics, utilities (water, electricity, gas) and mining.
The digital BEAT key connects to the physical heavy-duty, Bluetooth padlock, designed to perform in harsh environments and remote areas. The padlock has an IP68 protection rating, a case-hardened steel body and LED indications for lock status.
BEAT can be integrated with existing security workflow solutions in use, but it can also be implemented as a standalone locking solution. ABLOY OS enables managing keys, locks, and access rights on-the-go and remotely from a single, easy-to-use and highly visual interface.
