2000 daily users and 16th-century doors

Orihuela’s Colegio Diocesano is a complex site with a daily security brief beyond just keeping 2,000 students, staff and visitors safe. Offices, teachers’ rooms and computer rooms with equipment or data need permanent monitoring.

This is more than a school. The Colegio Diocesano occupies historic buildings dating to the 1500s. It is a heritage site as well as a  place of learning, with a museum which also requires the protection of the same access system.

Key Requirements:

  • real-time security control to limit free access to and around the site
  • fast, non-intrusive installation
  • easy integration with ilnventi education management software
  • simple scalability, so the school can extend or fine-tune in the future


Real-time security control

The school picked SMARTair’s Wireless Online management option for their new keyless access system. SMARTair locks and readers provide a streamlined way for admin staff to handle access— programming student and staff credentials for specific authorized areas.

SMARTair TS1000 software makes it easy to issue and cancel access credentials for temporary visitors such as parents.

16th century doors

Installation demanded minimal work; some schooldoors date to the 16th century, and the system was installed without a hitch and without any disruption to classes.

SMARTair gives the school’s security team the answers they need.
