Protect the things most important to you. Security in educational institutions.

Hundreds of students and teaching staff attend schools and seminar buildings on a daily basis. It is not entirely easy to keep tabs on who is allowed to be in different parts of the building. Guaranteeing security is a great challenge for those in charge. Intelligent door management channels visitor flows and protects students and teaching staff in the event of an emergency.


Educational institutions set high requirements –
including those for access security.

Educational institutions often have a large number of doors and locks, and historical buildings are often an added factor. Retrofitting or retrofitting with conventional locks is therefore particularly expensive.

  • Universities also typically consist of many different buildings
  • Individual rooms have different times of occupancy due to various events and persons (e. g. guest lectures; in schools also evening courses of adult education centres)
  • Occupancy plans change from semester to semester or school year to school year
  • Temporary access for students to areas such as computer and laboratory workstations must be controlled

Digital locking and access control system 3060 –
The advantages at a glance.

  • World-leading solution based on the latest security technology
  • High investment security and very good economic efficiency
  • Stable, low-maintenance
  • Easy to use
  • Retrofitting or retooling possible while the system is in operation
  • Flexible key management: Grant, change or revoke rights at any time
  • Limit user rights locally and temporally
  • Lost transponders or SmartCards are blocked by mouse click
  • Existing SmartCards, such as student and pupil ID cards,
    can be used as a "digital key"
Flur mit Schutzfunktion

Corridor with protective function

In the event of an emergency, such as a fire, close or open all doors at the push of a button.

Tür mit DoorMonitoring

Door with DoorMonitoring

Use locking cylinders with integrated door monitoring in sensitive areas. This solution will not only indicate when a door is open for too long, but also if the door is locked and how often it is locked.


Student residences

Save access authorisations on the same ID media used for university buildings. 



You can determine which floors can be accessed by lift. Is there a floor where only the library or laboratories are located? If so, access to the floor in question can only be activated using an authorised ID medium.



Fit a digital half cylinder to lockers, so that they can only be opened with an authorised ID medium. All locking transactions are fully logged.

Transponderterminal im Außenbereich

Transponder terminal
in the outer area

Obtain new or modified access authorisations from special terminals. The system administrator and users do not need to waste time contacting one another to make such changes.


Main entrance

Programme your system to ensure that the main entrance is automatically open for everyone during teaching hours or at lecture times. It can only be opened using an authorised ID medium at any other time. 

Facility Management

Facility Management

The Locking System Management software application allows operators to set up, operate and manage all System 3060 components. The software is available in different editions, from the basic Starter version through to LSM Professional.



Control vehicle access authorisations to car parks and garages with a click of your mouse. You can also combine System 3060 with parking fee ticket systems for public areas.

Bagarmossens Skola:
a top grade idea.

At the Bagarmossens School in Stockholm, 450 students and some 73 teachers are spread over a total of eleven school buildings. The school needs to be protected from the risk of theft, vandalism, break-ins and emergency situations such as fire. That's no easy task: room allocations change every academic year and individual rooms and building areas are occupied at different times. Ever-changing users and regular key losses complicate things even further. 

Studied security.
We fitted a special country-specific version for the Scandinavians. The school's digital locking cylinders feature a sealed electronic component assembly for doors with a Scandinavian Oval profile. Thirteen exterior doors can be opened with or without transponders. The school administration manages access rights for teachers and other staff very conveniently with the LSM software. This is a highly practical solution as there are many substitute teachers who come and go on a daily basis. It's also ideal for cleaning staff or technicians who often work late at night or on weekends.
The school used to be closed in the evenings. Today, public areas such as conference rooms or the music studio are able to offer greater flexibility in opening hours and their use, yet still remain secure, especially as the school practically closes itself now.

Leeds University:
in a class of its own.

Founded in 1904, the University of Leeds is one of the leading universities in the UK. It is also at the forefront when it comes to access management with System 3060 and the security, flexibility and cost efficiencies that this system offers.

Versatile tactics.
The University of Leeds offers nine different faculties, which, in turn, are divided into schools, institutes and centres. Spread over 40 hectares, the campus consists of 39 buildings. Managing and monitoring this vast area at all times day after day is a formidable task. And we have yet to mention the some 9,000 employees, 37,000 students and numerous high-tech rooms and communication centres.
System 3060 makes it all possible. Increasingly more buildings have been added to the system over the years thanks to its scalability. The digital locking and access system has now grown to include some 2,600 doors and more than 11,000 users. This system has also long catered to special needs: for example, disabled users receive a transponder with a built-in proximity chip which makes it much easier to use doors fitted with a SmartReader thanks to contactless access.

Technical informatics at University of Hannover:
decision for the future.

The new Technical Informatics Building at Hannover University was conceived with the future in mind. It features a digital locking system with access control in the SimonsVoss System 3060.

Networked convenience.
Only authorised employees and students may open the 233 doors in the new building, meaning security and access requirements are fully met for laboratory and computer workstations. The entire locking system is networked: the different components in the system are interconnected via a wired network since the original building design included the required cable installation. A PC transmits all information to a network node located next to the digital locking device via a two-wire bus. From here, data is forwarded to the digital component wirelessly.
This provides a PC-controlled access control system which can be configured and managed centrally, a convenient approach which also saves time. Networking guarantees a consistently up-to-date overview of the whole system.
