New escutcheon brings multi-factor authentication to SMARTair™

Behind its sleek, brushed steel design, the code-and-card escutcheon from SMARTair™ packs extra layers of security. This slimline addition to the MUL-T-LOCK®'s wireless access-control range works with both a 4-digit entry code and RFID smartcards.

“The new SMARTair™ escutcheon was designed to blend in with the aesthetics of a modern office or public building,” says Netta Ben Shlomo, Product Manager at MUL-T-LOCK®. “It has all the serious security features common to our SMARTair™ range—plus a little extra.”

The escutcheon offers three levels of user authentication: it can be opened by code only, by RFID-enabled smartcard only, or can require both to permit the access. SMARTair™ from MUL-T-LOCK® is compatible with all leading RFID technologies, including iCLASS® by HID, MIFARE™ Classic and DESFire™.

For ease of use in low light, keypad digits are illuminated—glowing blue when the user is entering a code, green when access is permitted, and red when entry is refused.

As with every component in the SMARTair™ range, the new escutcheon is wire-free, easy to install, and battery operated.
