Such a solution had to be simple to install and set up, cost-effective, reliable, complete and future-proof. What resulted was our pioneering SVN platform — the first stand-alone, battery-powered electronic locks for access control.
Since that ground-breaking start, the small group of enthusiastic and highly experienced professionals who founded SALTO has gone on to introduce a series of other innovations that have had a major impact on electronic security. With its online and real-time technology, our market-leading XS4 platform enhances the usability of virtually every building environment by securing nearly every door and enabling the monitoring and control of every user.
