Virtual networking – fast, convenient and affordable.
The electronic components in the system communicate with one another via a virtual network. The data exchange within the system takes place wirelessly in the scope of the normal use of the key – in the background and unnoticed by the user.
When a user holds their identification media, such as the new blueSmart key, on the upload reader or inserts it into the electronic blueSmart door cylinder, the components exchange information. For example, this includes changes to the local locking rights, changes of the time limits, lock event logs, battery status messages and much more.
In the special case that it is necessary to block a lost grand master key to all doors of the property as quickly as possible, a viral dissemination option has been implemented for blocking commands. Every key which has received this blocking command passes it along to every cylinder which it has unlocked or locked. And every “infected” cylinder passes it along, in turn, to every key thereafter. With this intelligent system, the block command rapidly snowballs through the entire property.
With the virtual transmission of information, the expenditure for the manual programming of offline door components can be almost completely eliminated with blueSmart. As a result, administrators and users of locking systems can enjoy all the advantages of offline solutions without missing out on the convenience of online systems. The project planning and installation of elaborate wiring or disruptive radio links can be eliminated and yet there is still a network for the rapid and uncomplicated exchange of data.
Management of who has which access authorisation and when takes place from the central computer/client. blueSmart is integrated in the Winkhaus software family.
