Case Study

School Security

Rouse Hill Anglican College goes keyless with Salto

Rouse Hill Anglican College is an Independent School located in the north-west of Sydney. It is an Anglican co-educational school for students from Kindergarten to Year Twelve.

The College was using mechanical keys to control access into different buildings and classrooms but if keys were lost that meant the expense of cutting new keys and sometimes having to replace the lock as well. To eliminate the necessity and cost of this, it was decided to upgrade security to a keyless electronic access control solution.

John Binney, Property Manager at the school says “Having kept up to date with changes in the security world, I knew that migrating from a mechanical key system to electronic access control could give us a virtually ‘keyless’ property that would be secure, and easier to operate and manage.

    • When we explained to the College how SALTO Australia has an established base of School and College customers to whom they provide security, access control, and campus management they wanted to know more. A demonstration of SALTO’s ability to control access, download audit trail information in real-time, delete users remotely and securely, lock and unlock doors remotely and collect lock battery status for maintenance sealed the deal.

We have now installed the SALTO XS4 offline electronic handle sets together with SALTO Virtual Network controllers in the administration area as well as into classrooms and offices throughout the College.

John Binney concludes “Our new SALTO access control system provides us with good effective security. We particularly like its SVN operating system and the fact that the RFID cards give us the multi-application capability for as and when we want to use it.”
