Salto Installation Phase 2.1 Replaces Existing Access Control Systems on Campus

Salto Installation Phase 2.1 Replaces Existing Access Control Systems on Campus

A phased project to replace existing access control systems all around campus is currently happening now until July, according to University of San Diego Facilities Management Project Administrator Myles Morris.

Salto Installation Phase 2.1 specifically targets exterior entries to the main academic buildings on campus. Morris said once the Salto system is online, it will improve building access and security because the plan calls for the consolidation of the existing four generations of key systems into a single, simplified system.

One particularly important feature of the new Salto locks, Morris said, is a centralized lockdown functionality which will improve response capabilities in the event of a campus emergency at USD.

It is also expected that installation of the new system can reduce operating costs because it can be programmed to lock and unlock on a set schedule. Manual locking and opening of buildings will no longer be needed on a daily basis.

Below, Morris provided photos of the current control systems at various entry places on campus.
