Only one minute from Montreal’s Concordia University is a 20-story apartment building that is primarily private student housing. As a result, there is a high turnover of occupants, causing difficulties with traditional keys. Students lose them, the wrong people have them and management continuously seems to be changing the cylinders.
However, with Ilco Unican‘s Solitaire 850L LearnLok(tm) system, management has been able to cut costs. To program, maintenance employees swipe the LearnLok card through the lock’s reader along with the tenant’s own personal card, which can be either a user’s system card, personal credit, bank or student ID card.
