The new SALTO XS4 Original+ takes the trusted and proven flagship XS4 Original electronic lock product family and incorporates the latest technology to accommodate the access control needs of both today and tomorrow.
“Our customers, partners, and users rely on the XS4 every day, which is why we’ve made XS4 Original+ more powerful, capable, and redefined to elevate any door’s security and management,” said Marc Handels, SALTO Systems Chief Technology Officer (CTO). “When you have an excellent product like the SALTO XS4 Original electronic lock that has withstood both the test of time and technology, it makes sense to improve upon what is already working very well.”
The SALTO XS4 Original+ design is based on the same proven housing and mechanical mechanisms of the XS4 Original. The XS4 Original+, however, is embedded with SALTO’s BLUEnet real-time functionality and SVN-Flex capability, that enables SALTO stand-alone smart XS4 Original+ locks to update user credentials directly at the door.

The XS4 Original+ also includes RFID Mifare DESFire, Bluetooth LE, and NFC technology functionality.
“By incorporating the latest in technology into the XS4 Original+ locking range, SALTO has delivered a product that extends up-to-date and comprehensive electronic access control to any door,” said Handels.
The XS4 Original+ is much faster than the XS4 Original, delivering more performance, new security architecture, the same electronic functionalities based on BLUEnet connectivity, and better power efficiency. The feature-rich new security architecture, which is protected against internal and external attack, makes everything more fluid, transforming the way users’ access, operators manage, and installers’ set-up the electronic lock.
There is an XS4 Original+ model for every type of access and customer need. The existing XS4 Original models are fully available in the XS4 Original+ product range – from the key override option to mechanical or electronic privacy models. Just as with the original version, the SALTO XS4 Original+ is suitable for a wide range of customer applications including interior doors in educational or commercial buildings, or tailored solutions for other specific building requirements.
Reportedly easy to install and retrofit, the SALTO XS4 Original+ works with ANSI, Euro, DIN and Scandinavian door industry standards. Universally compatible, it can replace the existing door hardware and fits any door with unlimited model options. XS4 Original+ wide reader models are slightly wider and the reader is now flatter.
“SALTO has long sought feedback from our end-users and partners on what they desire in an upgrade and, taking their input into account, we have developed the XS4 Original+ which delivers everything needed for current and future smart lock solutions,” said Aznar Sethna – SALTO Systems Chief Sales & Marketing Officer (CSMO).
“With restyle designs, industry-leading performance, and advanced access control features with impressive communication capabilities – all with incredible durability – the XS4 Original+ ensures customers get secure and safe access when they need it.” The XS4 Original+ works with existing XS4 Original door hardware. A broad range of different models and functions make smart access to any door possible to cover all needs of any type of building. Visually, it differs from the conventional XS4 Original only in a few details with improved reader aesthetics.
The XS4 Original+ is now flatter and available in black and white for a simplified, modernised front. The ANSI, Euro Wide, and Scandinavian Wide standard reader models are a little wider creating a more harmonious version. The XS4 Original+ can be tailored to the building and door needs with a wide variety of colours and finishes, including the new Dark Bronze finish, and black or white reader options. These can be visualised on a wide range of door styles by using the SALTO MyLock Configuration tool.
