tracking of each staff and personnel. At the same time, personnel keycards can be used to reprogram and change the RFID electronic lock settings, therefore avoiding having to travel to each and every lock to change the access parameters of the site. However, even the benefits of contact- less RFID electronic locks still have room for improvement. Site managers would like to have all electronic locks managed instantly from a central location, where they can check the


event audit of the lock, control all the employees and keycards issued directly and instantly from the central server, and be able to modify any single parameter on the go. Putting this solution in place


has not been economically feasible before, due to the troublesome issue of having to wire all electronic locks in order to connect them to the central server. Tis is exactly where the true benefits of a


wireless online platform for electronic locks come into place. With a wireless online system, all electronic locks remain stand-alone and simply operate with batteries, so no cables are required. Instead, they are connected through a secured wireless platform. Tis allows the best of both worlds: all the online capabilities of the network, avoiding the high installation and maintenance cost of a cable infrastructure. A wireless online solution allows site managers


to remotely control and manage all the electronic locks, making it possible to read out all events from the locks at any time. It also prompts alarms for low-battery status, door-ajar situations, etc., while managing all users´ access rights and being able to change and adapt on the go. It allows for easy control of all aspects of keycard management, from cancelling and renewing to changing access validation zones and timeframes, etc. ●
