Access control integrator W. F. O’Brien has installed Salto GEO locks fully integrated with the data-on-card Salto Virtual Network in heritage buildings at St Pauls College in Sydney.
ST Paul's College in Sydney, Australia, is an all-male Anglican residential college and affiliated with the University of Sydney. Founded in 1856, it is Australia's oldest university college and has nearly 200 residents, of whom about 150 are undergraduates; with the remainder being graduates undertaking further study or holding university positions.
The buildings at St Paul's College date from the late 1850s to the 1960s, 1970s and 1990s. There had been many changes to the locking installations over the years, meaning the college had ongoing problems with students losing keys giving them the expense of having to replace locks and keys on a regular basis.
VISITORS saw a bunch of new product and technology at ASIS 2013. In my opinion, the market remains slow on the draw when it comes new gear but there are some positive signs.
At ASIS 2013, Arecont Vision demonstrated its new SurroundVideo omni cameras, which feature 4 multi-megapixel sensors that can be individually adjusted to capture different fields of view within a full 360-degree range. The new SurroundVideo Omni cameras will be available in 5-megapixel (MP), 8MP, 12MP and 20MP configurations, plus will have multiple lens options available from 2.8mm up to 16mm. I’ve not seen footage or a live view of one of these cameras yet but for topical applications, it seems they would be a powerful solution, ideal for large open sites.
Integrator Seneschal has installed a fibre optic LAN and an Inner Range Concept 4000 access control system at Air Liquide Australia’s Sunshine site.

ELECTRONIC security systems are changing. Modern solutions exhibit high levels of integration that place increasing levels of management and control into the hands of users and system operators. Underlying these performance increases is something fundamental to security and safety – an increase in the levels of situational awareness an integrated solution can provide.
Salto Systems has launched Salto Clay, an access control system that can be managed in the cloud. John Adams spoke with Salto’s co-founder and Chief Marketing & Sales Officer Marc Handels to find out more.
Q: Salto is developing a bit of a cult following here in Australia – how did it all begin?
A: Salto as a company began 12 years ago in 2001 with 14 people – now we have 300 staff. According to HIS Research we are now the 8th largest access control company in the world with a turnover of nearly $E95 million.
We are a Spanish company based in Oiartzun but more than 95 per cent of our sales are outside of Spain. We have 24 offices around the world, including Australia. Our success factor is due to the data on card technology that we invented and we have done very well.
The Physical Security Interoperability Alliance (PSIA) launched the Physical-Logical Access Interoperability Working Group at ASIS 2013 last month. Group members include Honeywell, Ingersoll Rand, Inovonics, Kastle Systems, Mercury Systems, Microsoft Global Security, Stanley Security and UTC.
The new group will develop a specification to unify logical and physical identities, allowing manufacturers, integrators and end users to develop cost-effective, easily administered solutions that span the physical and logical security domains.
Kastle Systems initially brought the concept of an access interoperability specification to the PSIA board of directors when company executives noticed that many of their customers wanted to synchronize the identities used by their logical and physical access control systems.
