Finally, we are able to present a remote control and access system made for developers, a modern, customizable and open system:
Sircon Sesam lets you open and close, turn on and off, anything, from anywhere, anytime. Register and give local access to anyone via the Sesam App, automated or remotely via Sesam Admin or through the API!
Sircon Sesam simplifies the management of access to doors, gates, warehouses, cabinets and access throughout your business, regardless of the type of access. All platforms have purpouse-built interfaces.
Which systems are supported by Sesam ?
All electrical access systems can be fitted with Sesam: doors, hydraulic bollards, lifts, gates, cabinets and more.
A Sesam Controller is easy to install in any existing facility. No change is required to any pre-existing electric locking systems. Sircon Sesam can work in parallel with any such system and locks.
When using Sesam only to register visitors, no additional hardware or systems are required.
Sircon Sesam is priced per. API key, and door / access point / month.
Per API key (only needed for integrations with third party systems): €5o /month.(NOK500) No limit in the number of access points.
Per access point: €5 /month.(NOK50)
Sircon Sesam App and unlimited number of users are included.
Per camera, image storage: €1/month. (NOK10)
Sircon Sesam aims to provide predictable costs, everything is included in the monthly total.
The monthly fee includes:
Administrator control panel.
Feature and security updates.
30 days, remote backup of all logs and access data.
Maintenance and updates of Sesam Admin and Sesam API.
Maintenance and software updates for the Sesam App and Sesam Controller
There are no restrictions on the number of doors per. facility, so with several doors / access points the cost is modest per access point. There is also no cost when using the app. For larger numbers of (over 100) doors / access points we will provide a custom quote. There are neither restrictions on the number of administrators in Sesam Admin, nor users of the Sesam App. The Sesam App is free to download, and you never have to spend money on keys, cards or fobs again.
What can Sircon Sesam be used for?
Sircon Sesam can be used by anyone who needs an efficient way to log, control and manage groups of access points for groups of users or individual users.
This can be paid access, access based on membership or a one-time access to deliver something to a recipient who can pick up from the same access point. We see that logging accesses can also provide significant benefits in tracking infection, especially if you have frequent visitors that need to register each time they visit. Below you will find examples of some uses but the list can certainly be made longer. We envision many creative solutions and integrations over time.
Delivery / Pickup
Start / stop or switch appliances and equipment on and off
Meeting room access

Forget remotes, keys, codes, fobs or plastic cards. The only key you need is the Sesam App, and it’s free. These are the 5 components Sircon Sesam consists of:
1 Sesam Admin
Sesam Admin is our cloud service where you manage groups of users and groups of access points as well as screen information in our integrated digital access system.
Affordable hardware and minimal work required to setup each access point.
Sesam Controller is our software that runs on a standard Raspberry Pi 4 microcomputer. This controls what your access point should do, and executes instructions on the access point. This is controlled and administered from Sesam Admin. Sesam Controller communicates wirelessly via Bluetooth with the Sesam App and via WiFi with Sesam Admin. Download the software for free from our website. You configure Sesam Controller via your smartphone.
The Sesam API allows you to control everything in Sesam Admin via other systems. For example: You can reject non-paying members, or revoke access automatically in the event of resignation, as well as time managed access and maximum number of visitors, etc.
