Networked working – Networked company. Digital locking technology supports efficient organisational structures.

Industrial enterprises are faced with a variety challenges, including regulations such as IFS Food V6 or the General Data Protection Regulation 2018. Temporary project teams, complex hierarchy structures, existing time-and-attendance systems and networking different building complexes all present problems. A digital locking system simplifies things in an era of globalisation and digitisation.


Access control and attendance and time recording for the industrial sector.

It is particularly common in industrial companies that there are many different access authorisations - for example for development, production or administration. 

In addition, there are often further challenges to access control:

  • Complex hierarchies and multiple responsibilities
  • High-security areas such as development laboratories or management board level
  • Temporary access for visitors, temporary staff, cleaning personnel        
  • Existing, other organizational systems, such as time and attendance and cafeteria data collection
  • The need to integrate different locations at home and abroad

SimonsVoss offers a flexible and integrative solution for all these requirements: Our locking cylinder with access control function records exactly who has entered which room and when. Visitors and temporary staff can be provided with time-limited transponders or daily updated PINs for PIN code keypads.

Biometric transponders provide additional security for particularly sensitive areas. External organizational systems, such as time recording, can also be integrated into the system via smart relays.  Our Wavenet radio network connects different locations with each other. And even highly complex organizations can be mapped and controlled using the locking system management software.

Mercedes-Benz, Munich:
star-aligned security.

The Mercedes Benz Sales Centre in Munich is designed as a multi-functional building, offering a world of experience for all car fans. Its access management meets optimum quality and technology standards with SimonsVoss System 3060.

Customised for 80 user groups.
Mercedes Benz Munich has divided access authorisations into 80 user groups. Thanks to System 3060, these groups receive customised access rights to the many different areas in the building. Instead of carrying several keys, users have a single transponder, specially programmed for their individual usage requirements. This ensures that system administrators have a clear view of the whole system and can respond quickly and conveniently to any changes from a central control point.
SmartRelay 3063 also allows barriers, lifts and automatic vehicle doors to be integrated into the system. A courier, for example, can thus drive up to the gate or into the underground garage, operate the lift, access the stairway and enter the post room using just one single transponder. A total of 385 locking cylinders and 54 SmartRelays were installed within just under two months.

Roche Diagnostics:
innovations to benefit health.

Roche Diagnostics employs a workforce of some 7,000 in Mannheim, Germany.  Looking after the locking systems in an area comprising 225 buildings is a multifaceted job for those in charge. A two-man team uses System 3060 to manage and coordinate access through interior and exterior doors, gates and other entrances for co-workers, external employees and visitors alike.

Inexpensive and secure.
Access management needs to be inexpensive, yet secure for a company of this size. System 3060 meets these requirements at Roche, where SmartRelays are fitted to heavily used connecting doors. Operated with a transponder, these freely programmable control units function in the same way as an electric strike. The SmartRelay can also incorporate lifts, gates and barriers into the 3060 Locking System. All such elements can then be operated with a same single transponder. A special variant even arms the alarm systems in the Roche plant.
In addition to transponders, Roche also uses PIN Code Keypad 3068. A four- to eight-digit code is entered into the keypad to open doors. This is ideal for incorporating the many external employees who only work at the plant for a certain period of time. Instead of handing out countless transponders to temporary staf, management simply changes the code once a month.

Beck & Co brewery:
Bremen master brewer relies on SimonsVoss.

The Beck brewery in Bremen is Germany's largest export brewery. Their recipe for success consists in perfect logistics, elaborate brewing techniques and state-of-the-art equipment. Nothing is left to chance when it comes to security and access management either since they rely on System 3060 from SimonsVoss.

Three cheers for security
More than 12 million litres of beer routinely await handling on a storage space measuring some 13,000 square metres at Beck. The greatest challenge for management is security in all exterior doors since around 250 trucks and 90 containers leave the brewery on a daily basis. The brewery comprises ten buildings, where a total of 1,500 employees go about their daily business. Versatile, reliable and weatherproof, System 3060 is an optimum, easy-to-use solution for Beck. Administrators can control which users have access authorisation to specific doors centrally on a PC. One special feature is the system connection to the existing intruder alarm system. The SimonsVoss VdS-certified block lock function is designed specifically for this purpose. Consisting of an activation unit and several deactivation units, it prevents people from inadvertently entering areas where the alarm system is enabled, thus avoiding tiresome, expensive false alarms.
