The new generation is here

The latest software packages for blueSmart now also contain new programming devices

Intelligent start made easy! Winkhaus blueSmart's new starter packages contain everything you need to manage an electronic locking system: In addition to the software, the handy programming device with intuitive touch interface is now also available.

Different software packages are available for managing an electronic blueSmart locking system: The two starter solutions are called blueControl Start (BCS) and blueControl Start virtual (BCS-V). The technology enables locking authorisations to be adapted quickly and cost-effectively to changes in the organisational structure of a building or company. These software packages now also come with a suitable programming device in the latest BXP BS generation.

The latest starter software version 5.7 also includes a number of additional functions. For example,  it offers daily divisible time profiles, advanced network settings for the new programming device and updated data protection settings according to GDPR. The BCS-V package even enables online connection of up to 24 door managers (ITM or ITM-A) without the need for an access control centre.  

Programming devices with many technical innovations

Following the successful introduction in the blueControl Professional software package, the new BXP BS programming devices now also replace the previous technology (BCP NG) in the starter packages. The most striking feature is the display with colour touch surface. The backlight can be individually adjusted for easy readability.The new BXP BS devices also bring with them many other user-friendly innovations: For example, they include a LAN port for easy integration into the company network, which communicates with the management software. They also have a USB port and a WLAN module that enables wireless synchronization with the management software as an alternative to the USB or LAN interface. Dynamic memory management allows up to 20,000 locking plan changes to be transmitted in the starter packages or the events from all door components of a locking system managed with the starter packages to be read out in a single operation. A robust plastic housing in handy dimensions surrounds the innovative technology. Winkhaus supplies the devices with programming adapters for all blueSmart door components such as locking cylinders, door fittings, readers or furniture locks as well as plug-in power supply and powerful lithium-ion battery.

Flexible technology
The blueSmart electronic access management technology offers a wide range of possibilities to realise concepts that have been individually adapted to the building. The technology combines the advantages of offline solutions with the benefits of online solutions. This makes it much more flexible than offline solutions and significantly more cost-effective than online systems. Winkhaus relies on communication in a virtual network for this. The upload reader serves as an interface, which can also be used as an access reader for outdoor and indoor use. The efficiency of the electronic locking system management is increased, which supports cost-effective building operation. This simplifies changes to authorisations and blocks due to key losses, as well as preventative maintenance - for example through timely battery warnings. 

The blueControl Start (BCS) and blueControl Start virtual (BCS-V) software packages are ideal for managing small and medium-sized systems. Both the dealer, who can manage up to five customer locking systems as a service for the customer with a software installation (BCS-H), as well as the end user who manages the system himself (BCS or BCS-V), will find a suitable solution here. Winkhaus meets the requirements of different user groups with its software developed in-house. While blueControl Start enables management of systems with up to 300 keys and 100 offline door components, blueControl Start can control up to 700 keys and 350 offline door components virtually, as well as a maximum of six upload readers and up to 24 door managers (ITM or ITM-A). The upload readers form the interface to the virtual network and can also be used as access readers. An upgrade to the more comprehensive blueControl Professional software is possible at any time.
