About SALTO Systems

From its inception in 2001, SALTO was created with one objective: to devise a world-class access control system that was simple to use and extremely efficient, giving users the ability to control all their access needs and secure all their doors without complex and expensive wiring. 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. SALTO hardware and software can be networked without wires to provide real-time intelligence and instant control, while enabling integration with existing systems to improve manageability and enhance end-user experience.

Having revolutionized access control around the world in sectors where security is critical -- from airports and healthcare to government education and hotels -- we continue to deliver the most advanced and flexible electronic locking solutions on the market.

Market-led development
Innovation is one of the most critical factors behind SALTO's continued success. The inspiration and ideas for new products come from a variety of sources, and one of the most important is obviously SALTO's customers. Real market feedback is extremely valuable, especially for incremental product improvements. Another important source of input are all the new electronic and information technologies. These developments can often allow functionalities which were previously impossible, such as what took place with SALTO's Wireless technology, or more recently with our mobile solutions and the XS4 2.0 range.

Our R&D team
Like all elements of SALTO, at the centre is our team. In the case of R&D, the team of nearly 30 people is structured into three areas to best focus on the main areas of development: Mechanical, Electronics, and Software. SALTO jumped onto the access control map with its data-on-card technological innovation and we know that to stay a leader in this increasingly competitive landscape, SALTO needs to continue to invest in our resources -- people, capabilities, equipment -- in order to reach our research and development goals.

Complementary skills for strong solutions
It's important to highlight that the skills on the R&D team come from several disciplines. There are many engineers in the department, but there are also mathematicians and physicists with experience in mechanical lock design, electronic design, PCB design, firmware and software development, database knowledge, mobile apps software, and much more. The development process is an iterative one, so the team needs to be able to understand and analyze new challenges from many different angles. That's the best way to ensure that SALTO strengthens and builds upon our innovation capabilities which form the basis of our market-valued solutions.

SALTO Systems social initiative free2move.org is designed to encourage anyone with physical disabilities to participate in sports of all types as an excellent means for realizing a full and rewarding life.

SALTO Systems takes very seriously its responsibility to play a leading role in the social development of the local communities around its many offices throughout the world. 

In 2005 this effort was channelled into creating the free2move.org social initiative that works to promote handicapped sport as a means of achieving greater social integration, and thereby defying the assumption that people with a physical disability cannot lead a life of excellence and achievement.

Free2move.org actively supports 10 projects (individuals and teams) in six countries, including at such prestigious events as the Paralympic winter games in Sochi, World skiing championships as well as European and national paratriathlon competitions.
