SMARTair® Electronic Escutcheon

A robust wireless device to bring secure RFID unlocking to every high-traffic door. The new electronic escutcheon is easy to retrofit and compatible with online or offline system management.

Robust, innovative and elegant: the new SMARTair electronic escutcheon is a completely renewed and updated access control device, with a sophisticated design, multiple finishes and an extra-resistant locking mechanism. The new escutcheon is built for every environment where intelligence, design and functionality must stand out.

Wireless and battery powered, the SMARTair electronic escutcheon with integrated RFID reader and locking mechanism suits office and meeting room doors, or any door where daily traffic volume is high. It is an ideal alternative to mechanical keys, and easily fitted to upgrade your doors with powerful access control.

Comprehensive escutcheon specifications fit any kind of door, including narrow profile doors. European, Scandinavian, ANSI, Australian, DIN and more door types are all accommodated, to ensure 100% compatibility with market needs. A specific model for panic exit doors and kits for glass doors are also available.

The escutcheon’s two parts are installed directly onto the door, with no need to change the existing mechanical lock. It is perfect for retrofitting, because no wiring or cabling is required. All electronic locking elements are secured on the inside.
The SMARTair escutcheon comes in a variety of finishes and with a slimline design to fit every building style and scheme. An optional additional handle and antibacterial surface for healthcare applications are available.

Beyond security and design, SMARTair devices also deliver convenience for every user. Each device opens via a standard RFID credential, PIN code or a combination of both.

All SMARTair devices unlock with the Openow smartphone app. They work with any system management option: Standalone, Offline, Update on Card or Wireless Online.
