Suite and Room Units

Property managers can program Kaba InSync locks as either a unit or suite locking device. Suite locks allow multiple tenants entry into an apartment. If one student loses a suite key, then a newly issued key cancels out the lost key with continued access for other roommates. Unit locks provide students entry into an individual room unit or bedroom.

Perimeter & Common Areas

Whether installed in new construction or during a renovation, a student housing access control system must integrate with the current or choice perimeter and property management system.  This creates a comprehensive system that accommodates not only room and suite units but perimeters and common spaces.

The InSync lock series features Dual Credential Technology, which combines the standard InSync key (with Hitag S technology) with other hard-wired access control system protocols for single key convenience. Keys include PROX, MIFARE, or DESFire technology for seamless integration. This enables property managers to upgrade unit or suite doors with the InSync SAM RF system while maintaining their existing perimeter access readers.  

Property managers can program InSync C locks to control access of common areas throughout a student housing campus. Using SAM RF software, the InSync CR works in conjunction with operable sliding glass doors, roll-up garage doors, parking arms, electric strikes, magnetic locks, and telephone entry systems. The InSync CL, CM, and CP models work with stand-alone, battery-operated exit devices located at pool gates, fitness rooms, laundry areas, stairwell doors, etc.

Perimeter and common areas require a robust and durable access control solution that can withstand harsh environments and high-use levels.  Kaba’s Remote Control Units (RCU), available with MT, RT, and Quantum locks, are stand-alone electronic keycard readers designed to work with a variety of exit devices. RCUs are Messenger-compliant and can be easily integrated as part of System 6000.

Administrative and Maintenance Facilities

Administrative offices, in privatized and on campus housing facilities, are crucial to the overall operation of student housing. The office is not only a welcoming place for potential and new students to interact with the staff, but it also houses sensitive records and valuable assets. Many times, access to these spaces needs to be regulated by day, hour, and authority level, plus monitored for accountability. Kaba’s has a series of multihousing solutions that offer access scheduling, granting entrance to an authorized user only at the specified times. If additional features are needed, then an E-Plex electronic lock may be applicable.
