    Salto battery handles can be online ones via wireless or offline ones the reason the cards need to be written to are the fact the cards basically tell the locks they should be let in.

    We've had Salto battery handles on external doors as do other schools so that's quite handy.

    Ah, I see so can you lock out a lost card them, or do you have to update the doors if they are working off line?

    The Paxton units as you say work with paxton wireless, though in theory you could use them off line by having one wireless unit that you moved round to update programming etc.

    Sounds like both systems are worth a look.

    Salto here too. We use a company called Beaver Access. We use the keyfobs with the copiers on a safecom system. We have one online updater to keep fobs up to date.

    Don't be tempted to get the cheap keyfobs on ebay. They are cheap for a reason. They don't work.

    All cards also carry the blacklist on them so once a card is blacklisted the next time a card that has been updated at an online lock so it gets the latest blacklist is presented to an offline lock that offline lock also updates its blacklist.

    The online doors will also run in offline mode if the network connection is lost for whatever reason.
