Smart Series

First time dual combination & time delay extension

Retail – Efficient and Reliable

Smart Series safe locking systems are the best choice in a retail environment. Most retailers have more than one store manager requiring access functions not available to a user. The lock system allows for two Master administrative codes and one General Manager with full system capabilities. Other managers and users can be assigned a role to restrict access to certain operations.

Quick Service Restaurants – Durable & Acurate

Food service environments are notorious for their durability requirements when it comes to hardware. The Smart Series units are designed to take the hard usage that comes from working in demanding fast paced environments.

Banking – Safe and Secure

Multiple time delay override codes allow select personnel access without waiting for the time delay period to elapse. Cash carriers view only one Time Delay override code as inefficient. The manager can select multiple users with Time Delay override access. Multiple cash carrier employees can be enrolled. Audits confirm who received the cash and when.

The Smart Series products offer advanced features for controlling safe access.

The Smart Series products offer advanced features for controlling safe access. LG Master, SmartLinc II and SmartPoint together make up the LA GARD Smart Series. Retail, banking and commercial environments require safe locking systems that provide the highest form of security and access control. The system must be durable and accurate, offer efficiencies to enhance employee productivity, yet ensure accountability. These features are the foundation of the LA GARD Smart Series.

The Smart Series offers a range of features: multiple master codes, 48-98 users, user role assignment and the ability to manage up to five locks from a single logic module.

Accountability is more than a deterrent; it’s the strongest weapon available to prevent internal and external theft. The Smart Series provides accountability through indisputable audit information. The advanced features of SmartLinc II and SmartPoint offer up to 4,000 audit events in each lock and 1,000 system events at the logic module.

Ensuring your employees’ safety and security is paramount. Features like the Silent Signal Duress Alarm, Time Lock scheduling and Time Delay allow for time-controlled access and warnings to be sent in the event of a robbery. Other programmable features such as first opening dual code and time delay extensions help enforce security protocols.



Management systems are by nature designed to improve efficiency. The Smart Series is a security management system and as such must improve efficiency. The simple operational features of the Smart Series deliver significant improvement in productivity thanks to its simple operation, quick combination changing and automated processes.


Besides reliable, the lock must be durable to stand the test of time. The testament to this durability is that the Smart Series has been the lock of choice of countless food service chain businesses. The locks operate in environments that are notorious for their durability requirements with locks being operated many times a day and being subjected to contaminates such as grease and commercial cleaning chemicals. The Smart Series units are designed to survive these environments and have the track record to prove it.

Tried and Tested

Various Smart Series locks have been deployed by banks, fast food franchises, retailers, drug storage, jewellers, pubs, clubs, hotels, hospitals and virtually anywhere flexible and secure management is required.


The simple fact is when you are placing a lock on a safe vault or ATM it must be reliable. Lock failures are expensive and interrupt normal business operations. LA GARD and the Smart Series are recognised as amongst the most reliable safe, vault and ATM locks in the market.


The Smart Series has met many global security certifications. A testament to this is that the lock has been chosen to secure the assets of Australian and New Zealand businesses since 2004 on more than 35,000 safes, vaults, ATMs and secure containers.


The Smart Series have locks with up to 4,000 event audit trails and with over 1,000 various different events. The locks can provide detailed audits of who, when and how the lock was opened, which is invaluable information for Loss Prevention Managers.


Generic Management systems are inflexible and can counter efficiency gains. The Smart Series can be programmed in multiple methods to function in a way to best align with an organisations security procedures.


One of the main drivers for an organisation to choose a lock from the Smart Series range is to help keep their people safe. The feature set of the Smart Series includes, Time Delay, Duress or Silent Alarm, Time Locking and Individual User Codes, which are all industry accepted security protocols in various configurations, designed to increase the safety of staff. The Smart Series is also designed to enforce security operational features.

These features include:

  • LG Master only
    First open dual combination which ensures two people must be present to open the lock at the start of the day but a single code can open the lock during the day to ensure customer service levels are met.
  • LG Master only
    Time delay extension which allows the time delay to be set at a longer length at opening times when staff safety can be more at risk than during the day.

With Over 35,000 Locks Installed In Australia & New Zealand, The La Gard Smart Series Provides The Reliability And Security Your Business Deserves.


Light Emitting Sensor Technology – Highest usability – Curved face – Teflon contact surface – Highest quality image generation (650 DPI captured)

Safes located in retail, banking or commercial environments require secure access by multiple users.

Entry to a safes cash supply is typically via key or combination (PIN). There are risks inherent to these options; keys are easily lost or duplicated, combinations can be forgotten, lost or given to others. Often there is no record of these access events. Access control based on biometrics eliminates the exposure, cost and downtime associated with lost keys and combinations, while making it possible to establish a user’s identity based on “who they are” rather than “what they possess” or “what they remember.”

The SmartPoint Biometric Recognition Locking System captures the unique and significant features of a human fingerprint to allow or deny safe access. The authorised person must be physically present for access to be granted, ensuring positive identity and the accuracy of the audit.

The SmartPoint software uses highly secure algorithms to recognise and analyse the unique relative positions of the fingerprint patterns. Actual finger prints are not recorded. This guards against any possible “identity theft” issues. SmartPoint will accurately verify or deny a fingerprint from a database in a fraction of a second.

The biometric reader features patented Light Emitting Sensing (LES) technology. LES has been tested to more than 1.5 million touches and has proven immune to electro-static discharge, nicotine and other elements that negatively impact competing scanning technologies.

LES’ unique method of image capture effectively overcomes issues of dry, wet and slick fingers that commonly defeat other finger input technologies. In addition, Live Finger detection eliminates spoofing by gummy or silicon replicas.

Benefits of Biometrics

  • Increase management efficiency for the control of employee safe access rights. Code sharing is not possible because to open, a valid finger print is required. The added benefit is this feature makes the audit trail even more valid.
  • Eliminate hard and soft costs associated with keys and combinations.
  • Create a non-refutable identification and hold each user accountable through extensive audit capabilities.
  • Control multiple compartments within a single safe with one biometric unit.
  • Economical retrofit for existing mechanical or electronic locks.
  • Biometric reader passed the Class 1 requirements set forth by the U.S. National Biometrics Security Project (NBSP) with a false acceptance rate of less than one in one million.
