The issue:

EDGE Technologies with partners all over the world is always looking out for quality products, accompanied by local service that can integrate effortlessly with smart devices. The same goes for a cloud-based access control provider that could integrate with the in-house built app in which Edge Technologies customers are able to control all of their preferences like manage their meeting room reservations.

The solution: Salto KS Connect integration

The Azure integration allows EDGE Technologies to integrate the product with their platform and gives the confidence that SALTO KS is able to scale well. Salto KS is a platform solution which is integrated with EDGE Technologies solutions. Via the integrated KS solution in their mobile app, you can open doors and open booked meeting rooms. This optimizes the operations of access control in the EDGE Technologies buildings and there is no direct need for access cards with all the related management. Users are automatically assigned and managed via the app in the access security system, which is another benefit.

The solution: Salto KS Connect integration

In the EDGE Olympic building, tenants can book meeting rooms through an application of building operator EpiCentre but also within the MAPIQ APP. The traffic of these booking options is managed and aggregated by a service developed by Microsoft for EDGE. This Service is connected to Salto KS which means that any meeting room booking leads to the automatic creation of appropriate access right in Salto KS. This leads to the below end-user flow:

This leads to the below end-user flow:

  • 1. Booking is done in either MAPIQ APP or Epicentre Room Booking
  • 2. Instant access rule is created in Salto KS and the door opens
