What Is Volo?

VOLO is an innovative cloud-based access control solution, comprising of Access Control Units (ACUs) which connect to the door locking equipment and cloud-hosted software. The software communicates with the ACUs to allow users to administer and control their access control requirements via any browser-enabled device, from anywhere in the world.

VOLO consists of 2 types of controllers (Master & Slave) and each can control 2 lock outputs and 2 reader inputs. You can connect up to 24 slaves to each master, meaning that you can control up to 50 doors using only 1 master controller.

The Background

VOLO is not a new solution to the market. VOLO has been available for 6 years via Norbain and was recently purchased in March 2021 by KMC, who own the UK and European rights for VOLO.

Dean Kernot of KMC has been the product head for VOLO for the entire 6 years and has worked closely with the manufacturing partners to design the solution.

The Power Behind The Solution
