INDIANAPOLIS, September 10, 2020 – The new Keyscan Aurora 1.0.21 access control management software from dormakaba provides a single software solution that powers Keyscan access control systems, regardless of size or complexity.


“We’ve added two innovative integrations: Destination Dispatch, a SMART elevator system, and ButterflyMX, a SMART video intercom system, to make it easier for individuals to move from one place to the next,” said Scott McNulty, Senior Product Manager, Electronic Access and Data. “Both integrations make it easier for users to flow efficiently and securely through the building.”


Reduce elevator wait times by automating

Keyscan Aurora integrates with the Destination Dispatch SMART elevator system, eliminating the need for traditional analog and relay-based connectivity to the elevator dispatching system. This means the elevator will actually already know which floor passengers are going to before they board.Destination Dispatch groups passengers for the same destinations into the same elevators, thereby reducing wait and travel times when compared to a traditional approach where all passengers wishing to ascend or descend enter any available lift and then request their destination.


Here’s how it works:

  • Passengers throughout the building present their access control credentials and call for an elevator using a touchscreen or keypad located near the elevator bank.
  • Destination Dispatch software analyses all elevator call requests and coordinates trips based on passengers’ floor access permissions set by Keyscan’s access control management software.
  • Destination Dispatch directs passengers to an assigned elevator bank.
  • Elevator arrives and takes passengers to their destinations faster and more economically.
  • This integration system is ideal for:

    • Buildings where all elevators in a group do not serve the same floors
    • Buildings with lobby congestion during peak hours
    • Buildings with more than one incoming lobby
    • A single tenant building with a restaurant that is only served by a single elevator in a group
    • A multi-tenant building where the common areas are dispersed throughout the building
    • A multi-tenant building where tenants may require exclusive elevator service
    • Manage access to your facility from your smartphone

    • Integrating a ButterflyMX system with Keyscan Aurora allows tenants to manage access to their facility from their ButterlyMX smartphone app using the permissions set in the Aurora database. They can also receive video calls, call elevators, unlock doors remotely, and grant managed access for delivery and service providers.

    • This integration offers enhanced, cloud-based/cloud-activated security and is ideal for office, co-working, industrial, warehouse and multi-housing settings.

      • Other Keyscan Aurora 1.0.21 enhancements include:

        • Introduction of the new Aurora API for simple, easy customer integrations with 3rd party systems
        • Additional features and improvements to dormakaba wireless locks, BEST offline locks and E-Plex locks
        • Ability to change new and existing credentials and send to one or more sites
