iLOQ is to work with KONE as one of its ecosystem partners. By using KONE’s digital platform, the interplay of iLOQ’s and KONE’s technologies and API’s will create added value in access control.

To achieve a wider set of capabilities and enable faster innovation together with customers and the people who use their solutions, KONE is focused on building a partner ecosystem. This involves collaboration with technology leaders globally, such as iLOQ, to find the best innovations to enhance the People Flow® experience.

KONE, a global leader in the elevator and escalator industry, last week introduced the world’s first digital elevator series – KONE DX Class. Featuring built-in connectivity and a range of easy-to-activate services, the company is aiming to enhance the user experience through a combination of design, technology, new materials, apps and services.

iLOQ is continually taking advantage of the new opportunities offered by digitalization and the Internet of Things to create significant added value for its customers. For example, iLOQ’s standard open application programming interface (API) enables integration with state-of-the-art data-sharing and reservation systems as well as customers’ personal databases.

“We are merging the technologies of tomorrow with the buildings of today to put the ‘smart’ into smart buildings,” says Tomio Pihkala, EVP, New Equipment Business, KONE.

The KONE DX Class digital platform and APIs enable customers to tailor and plug in additional software and services for elevators throughout the entire lifetime of a building taking the whole people flow experience to a level never-before seen in the industry.
