Access rights management Kaba exos® 9300

A well-planned access control system consists of online (wired) locks, standalone (non-wired) electronic locks and a number of mechanical locks, often installed in secondary doors or as an override to electronic locks for emergency situations.

But how do you keep an overview, especially in a large organisation, of who holds which type of access (electronic card or mechanical key) to each door?

Kaba exos allows you to manage mechanical keys alongside ID cards using our efficient MKS (master key systems) module. You keep a clear overview and monitor who is carrying a key and/or a card to which door.

  • With the Kaba smart key (reversible key-RFID combination) you assign key and electronic rights in a single step
  • Easy-to-manage procedure. Simply import all relevant data of your mechanical or mechatronic locking system and save time on commissioning.
