Online and offline access control
A deister wireless locking solution makes it significantly easier and cost effective to change from using conventional mechanical keys to an electronic access control system. Installation is very straightforward with no damage being done to the door, often the existing sash lock can be kept and there is no need for time consuming and expensive cable installation.
The electronic door components are battery operated and the whole system works without the need for any wires to the door. The door components are available in a variety of different formats, including an electronic cylinder and smart handle. For greater flexibility and further expansion of the system the product range also includes an updater, controller and online readers. Using our Commander software provides many of the performance benefits of a professional access control system.
Benefits at a glance
Long battery life
The smart energy management system (patent pending) means that battery life can exceed 5 years with as many as 90,000 activations. This ensures exceptionally low long term costs to maintain the system.
Management of the door access rights is controlled by the use of “cardNet” or “airLink” which avoid the need for cables to be installed to the door.
Onsite adaption to the door
The installation length of the electronic cylinder can be varied even when onsite using spacer plates reducing the number of stock variations.
A high precision quartz crystal clock to ensure perfect time control as well as an airLink module are standard in all reader heads.
The in built card reader is designed as a plug in module allowing the reader technology to be changed at any time to meet with changing requirements or new technologies.
Made in Germany
All products are “Made in Germany”. Their function and quality are developed, produced and tested to the highest standards.
airLink - energy saving wireless technology
airLink is the deister wireless technology developed in-house that is designed and optimised to connect electronic locking components and an updater into a system by means of an airLink wireless network. airLink avoids the hassle of having to open up walls or having to rewire your building. airLink products have been designed to have the lowest possible power consumption and use sophisticated energy management for the best in class battery life resulting in low ongoing battery replacement costs.
airLink door components can regularly exchange data, receive new access rights and transmit their access log to the central system. All transmitted data is secured by the powerful and secure AES encryption standard.
- Very low power consumption
- Secure AES encryption
- Long wireless range
Electronic cylinder - the modern lock for the future
The euro profile electronic cylinder is installed in just a few simple steps, similar to that of a traditional mechanical cylinder. Since the design size is identical nothing needs to be adapted, drilled or altered. The basic clylinder bodies can be ordered in 5 different installation lengths and include a half cylinder; it is possible to adapt their length with the use of profiled spacers when installing. That means it is possible to realize lengths from 30/30 to 45/75 in 5 mm steps using multiple profiled spacers.
Why use a deister electronic cylinder:
- Installation length can be adjusted whilst on site to suit the door thickness
- Exceptional battery life, even with high security cards
- Best in class reading performance
Smart handle - access control in a door handle
The slim and clean design of the deister smart handle ensures it will look at home on any door. Four different models are available with different handle styles. During installation it is often possible to make use of the same fixing holes as used for the conventional fittings.
Where access to the existing traditional cylinder and key is required (for example to dead lock the door) a cover plate suitable for the lock profile is used. A full cover plate can be used to elegantly cover the cylinder opening when one is not used. The exchangeable cover plate makes it possible to adapt the installation on doors with different distances between the handle and cylinder, an approach that ensures the smart handle fits perfectly on every door.
Why use a deister smart handle:
- Works on any door
- Slim and elegant design
- Easy to change the battery
Electronic sash lock - security meets design
The digital lock is developed for self-locking locks and combines security with an attractive design. The minimalistic design allows you to seamlessly integrate with the design of the door handle to give maximum freedom of choice of shape and colour.
On top of that the digital lock offers more security, because even if damaged or forcefully removed there is no access to the mechanics of the locking mechanisms which is inside the door.
Why use a deister electronic sash lock:
- Maximum design freedom
- More security
- Encrypted lock control
Electronic strike - The best of online and offline combined
The digital strike offers the same door control and door monitoring functionality as online access control with all the benefits of an offline system. It has two inputs and outputs that can control a door alarm or detect a door contact. It is powered by a local power supply and can be flush-mounted.
The digital strike can be operated wirelessly via Cardnet or airLink with no cables being required for data communication.
Why use a deister electronic strike:
- Online functionality with the benefits of offline access control
- Compact design for easy installation
- Existing components can be reused
Interchangeable reading technologies keep your system up to date
Our electronic door components supports all popular card technologies as well as active transponders. The reader technology module is separated from the other electronics. The reader module is located in the reading head and can be exchanged and upgraded easily.
All reading heads have the same form factor an are interchangeable between different electronic door components. The reading technology can easily be exchanged without having to replace the complete hardware.
Why use a deister electronic door components:
- All popular card technologies are supported using different reader modules.
- Easy to exchange the reader technology
- System can stay up to date with minimum effort and cost
deister CardNet - an offline system with online features
One of the issues with an offline system is that as the system gets larger the components can quickly become stretched to their limits. For example, the more users and doors there are, the more data needs to be stored, managed and distributed and the system becomes more dependant on the busy infrastructure. Our solution to this is Cardnet, a technology developed by deister that time stamps and stores access rights, time profiles and calendar profiles on the user’s key fob, card or credential. This ensures the offline locking components are secure, yet not affected by the size of the system and the number of users. In a Cardnet system there needs to be an update reader or update station. These are installed at key positions such as at building entry points, which in turn are connected to the system either by cable or airLink. The user must update their credential at that point of entry every day which in turn updates their access rights for the buildings doors.
When using offline components the validity of the time stamp is checked first, then the access rights and time profiles are checked before access to the door is granted.
As well as update readers and update stations with an integrated display, the product range also includes standard online readers. With a well thought through combination of update readers, online readers and offline locking components it is possible to economically and securely implement a whole system that can be expanded at any time.
