Salto Hardware

Every door deserves to be smarter, easier to access and more secure. That’s why we partnered with SALTO Systems, whose systems are built to be mixed and matched depending on the type of building and the type of door.

Meet the 5 essentials of a Clay system:

Tools we use at Clay

The Escutcheon

The Escutcheon gives you the experience of a real door handle, and looks absolutely stunning on any door! With a large variety of models, XS4 electronic escutcheons fit virtually any door, including those with narrow frames. They are also suitable for use at fire doors and emergency exits. Totally wire-free and compatible with most European, Scandinavian and ANSI mortise locks and tubular latches. Our meeting rooms at Clay are equipped with escutcheons.

The Wall reader

The Wall reader provides the ideal solution for those access points where online connectivity is needed, or where interaction with other systems or electric powered devices such as elevators, roller shutter doors or barriers are required. We use a wall reader outside our main gate at Clay. It includes latest electronics and is completely sealed and designed for heavy-duty outdoor use (IP 66). It reads encrypted data from the carriers and then communicates it to the door controllers. Available in sophisticated black or crispy white.

The IQ

The Clay IQ is the link/ dedicated gateway between SALTO hardware units, repeaters and the Clay server. The IQ receives all changes and settings from your app and ensures that all locks are updated within seconds. The IQ serves as the brain of a Clay System. Keep a look out for our upcoming blog post about the IQ 2.0!

The Tag

A tag is a physical device (contactless key fob) that works based on RFID. Tags represent the user’s physical credentials to a lock. Every valid tag can lock and unlock a lock. RFID technologies available: DESfire, Mifare. 13.56MHz contactless RFID identification. High security, by using password and encrypted proximity fobs. A tag is the first item a new brick receives on their first day at Clay! Our team uses Clay tags to enter the office, when they don’t have their smartphone with them, or when their phone is out of battery.

You’ve met the core family of hardware! Our doors at Clay are equipped with wireless SALTO locks, which take commands from the Clay IQ inside the property. You can use any combination of locks to manage access throughout a whole property or even across different properties in different locations.
