All the reasons why you deserve an iLOQ, Part 1: Maximizing security during renovation work

If you live in, or are responsible for maintaining, an apartment building, particularly an old one, you are well aware that renovation work often needs to be done. This can be a small project, such as painting the interior walls, or a large one such as replacing the facade or updating the plumbing system. 

How can you keep the building and the individual apartments secure while the work is being carried out and when it’s been completed? 

If the building has a mechanical locking system, you basically have no chance. How can you possibly control who has keys and know where and when they are being used? How can you be sure they haven’t been copied and passed on to unauthorized people? To be on the safe side, you have probably considered replacing the entire locking system at the end of the renovation, but that’s a huge cost, right? 

All these issues can be solved very easily by installing iLOQ’s digital locking system. With all the information stored on iLOQ’s easy-to-use software, the administrator of the locking system has total control over keys and their access rights. The keys are issued only to the people responsible for the renovation work. Access rights are programmed to individual keys making sure that only the right people have access to the right places at the right time. Access logs keep track of where, when and by whom the keys have been used which prevents misuse. If a key is lost, its access rights are immediately cancelled rendering the key useless for anyone who finds it. 

When the renovation work has been completed, all keys used by service personnel can be reprogrammed and reused by new residents making it a 100% sustainable solution. And, if the keys are not returned to the administrator, their access rights are instantly cancelled to ensure they cannot be used by unauthorized people in the future. 

Security of the building and peace of mind for the residents is maintained during and after the renovation. No administration headache or unforeseen costs. And what’s more, all iLOQ solutions are battery-free which slashes maintenance costs and saves 30,000 kg of battery waste from polluting the environment. It’s a win-win situation all round.
