I am curious why a Salto Geo lock appears to be clearly displayed in this articles "lead picture", yet you did not mention Salto in the article? Due to the fact that Salto has a completely different approach to "wireless" locks with serious advantages over the products you did cover, I find it odd and disappointing that you did not include Salto. So......why were they not included?
True, but the effective range is typically inches and the throughput is ultra low (i.e.: 26 bits), so it's a little incongruent to consider them 'wireless' in the same manner as the other access components.
Any update coming on wireless locks for access control?. With so many brands out there now it would be great to get a little head to head comparison. In Europe we have so many door types that many of the US brands are not compatible with so maybe some international solutions would be good in that comparison. I would agree that off line locks are not really something that should appeal if looking at a security system rather than perhaps a locker system.
We would mostly see Assa Aperio, Salto, Simons Voss, I do agree that some US offering do include some offerings for non US doors , but you might be surprised how few that is. It does seem quite staggering how many different SKU's Aperio have in their range to cope with all the different European door thicknesses and styles.
Also the range that they work at seems quite varied and not helped perhaps by the thickness of some older European walls in their buildings. this also can lead to battery life issues.
I guess i was just looking for some more comparisons on real life experiences if there are any out there.
