SmartLock System

Compliance Made Easier with Electronic Locking Data Center Cabinet Access Control

Raritan’s SmartLock is a networked, electronic door access and control system designed to deliver audited controlled access to physical sensitive IT assets in the data centers’ white space. It is an economic scalable solution that addresses evolving security requirements for IT applications and regulatory compliance from HIPAA, SOX, PCI DSS 3.2, or SSAE.

This universal, vendor agnostic door access and control system will retrofit with any pre-existing white space cabinets and containment while seamlessly integrating with your data center’s technology architecture to:

  • simplify operations, while enabling enterprise-level security
  • automate physical access monitoring
  • reduce total deployment effort and cost

In addition to physical security at the rack, Raritan offers other intelligent rack solutions that monitor and deliver critical information you need for continued uptime.


Scalable and Flexible

Scalable and flexible, the devices are accessible through an existing IT network with any DCIM software or with standard scripting and communication protocols. This allows for fast and easy IP address cascading, network discovery, configuration, and ongoing maintenance.

Compatible with PX Intelligent PDUs

The SmartLock system is plug-and-play compatible with Raritan’s PX intelligent PDUs. This delivers dual networking and power redundancy options without requiring additional infrastructure wiring. It also ensures uptime while reducing the effort to resolve critical issues when they occur.

Easily Retrofit in any Environment

Designed to fully integrate and retrofit with the most popular electronic door lock devices, the SmartLock system makes installation and operation simple and economical.

Network Controlled Access

With on-demand door control for defined users or groups, the SmartLock system provides flexible and secure access and control down to cabinet and device levels.

Smart Card Support

The SmartLock system provides a seamless integration with common access smart cards and other ID management technologies. It delivers multiple levels of security allowing identifiable and authorized personnel access to sensitive IT assets.

Real-time Sensing and Alerting

Embedded into the SmartLock system is Raritan’s innovative Xerus technology. Xerus enables smart sensing, tracking, and alerting of proactive, real-time information with an automated audit-trail logging of access events.
