ATLAS Access Control System

ATLAS (Advanced Technology Lodging Access System) is an intuitive web-based access management system, designed for small to large-scale multihousing facilities that need better control over their back office operations and a system to provide secure access to their premises and accurate historical audit info.

ATLAS integrates into any IT infrastructure and provides multihousing facilities with a user friendly and efficient method of managing & controlling access and collecting both system and lock data.


Kaba made the ATLAS system compatible with the most sought-after electronic locks on the market – Solitaire 710-II, Generation 760, 76M, 710, 770 and 790. Moreover, the Remote Access Controllers (Model 4) and the Exit Device Operator E-730, 720-II and 79E will also work with ATLAS.
