How does dormakaba support access planning for an entire neighborhood?

  • Support of the customer in the project and planning phase

  • Recording the needs and requirements for the access points in the various usage units

  • Adaptation of the access system to the customer's needs and connection of third-party systems

  • Consulting on suitable peripheral and access components



One access system for everyone in the neighborhood

Transparent and flexible

When it comes to granting different access rights to visitors, employees and external companies, intelligent technical building management is called for - as is the question of who was in which area at what time. A smart system for building management provides

  • an overview of all issued keys

  • reacts quickly to changes

  • and meets the growing security needs.

exos - a strong foundation

The modular Kaba exos 9300 access system covers all access control functions and protocol functions. In addition, it can be fully adapted and expanded to meet customer requirements and processes.

Requirements for every scenario

Thanks to its modular and scalable system design, Kaba exos 9300 can be easily expanded. New rental ends, connection to third-party systems or expansion of the media variety, e.g. to the smartphone, can be integrated and are possible at any time. The convenient update capability of system components, the backward compatibility and the migration capability of existing solutions protect investments made in the long term. The seamless integration of exos into the customer's IT world also reduces infrastructure and personnel costs.
