C•CURE 9000/SALTO Offline Lock Solution

The C•CURE 9000/SALTO Offline Lock Solution offers flexibility for any project where the cost of a high security, fully wired door is not justified.

The C•CURE 9000/SALTO Solution is ideal for areas where real-time security monitoring is not a priority, such as storage and office areas. Doors fitted with SALTO offline lock technology are integrated and managed within the existing C•CURE 9000 system.

The seamless C•CURE 9000 integration with SALTO offline locks supports bi-directional communication with the SALTO system using SHIP (SALTO Host Interface Protocol). With the SALTO offline lock solution no cabling is required to the actual lock installation. If required, door inputs can be wired separately to Software House online devices for real-time monitoring.

SALTO offline locks can be accessed by a card holder only after appropriate access permissions are written to the card by swiping a card at a control point reader. This will update and activate access to offline locks. The offline lock access permissions are managed on the central C•CURE 9000 system.

  • Offline transactions shared via cards are synchronized with the C•CURE 9000 server
  • SALTO online readers to update cards for offline reader access
  • Offline, wireless and wireless-ready locks supported
  • Flexible design can be fitted to almost any type of door
  • Ideal to replace a key management system
