iLOQ – Making life accessible
iLOQ provides smart locking and secure access to buildings and spaces we use daily and caters to the needs of industry and the utility sector with mobile and digital solutions for efficient access sharing and management. We are industry-leading innovators with a strong portfolio of safe and sustainable products that have been designed to make life easier.
We are a Finnish growth company who has transformed mechanical locking into highly-functional and immensely-secure digital access management. iLOQ provides self-powered digital locking and mobile access management solutions that have revolutionized the locking industry. Our innovative technology and software is developed and patented by us – enabling electronic locking without batteries or cables.
No batteries. No worries.
In 2007, we introduced the world’s first electromechanical locking system that harvests energy for unlocking from key insertion. The management of access rights with the all-digital iLOQ S10 is easier and more secure than mechanical systems. The iLOQ S10 lowers maintenance and life cycle expenses significantly (when compared to mechanical or battery-operated electromechanical locking systems) making it the superior choice for access control management.
No batteries. No keys. No worries.
In 2016, we announced the NFC product family that would utilize NFC technology to its full potential.
The iLOQ S50 – with keyless, NFC-enabled mobile access technology and secure cloud-based access sharing – is the first lock cylinder on the planet to harvest energy for unlocking from a smartphone. The iLOQ S50 takes keys, batteries and excess wiring out of the equation allowing for significant product lifecycle savings. This advanced technology is designed to solve difficult issues facing the utilities industry and simplify daily operations. The iLOQ S50 is an ideal solution for consolidating multiple (and remote) location management, saving businesses time and resources.
The key to smarter properties.
In 2019, we took advantage of the opportunities offered by digitalization and the Internet of Things and introduced the iLOQ S5. By combining the reliable mechanics of the iLOQ S10 with the new electronics, iLOQ S5 offers a range of unique features and provides even more added value to its users.
iLOQ S5 brings high data security and unparalleled access control, along with competitive lifecycle costs and significant savings, to building owners, users and key holders.

In accordance with our environmental program, we aim to conserve natural resources and the environment. For example, we maximize the usability of our products, minimize battery waste, favor recyclable packaging and reduce the need for maintenance-related travel by developing advanced remote control services. We also invest in the recycling of used products.
All of our locks and keys are fully re-programmable, they can be returned to their factory settings and reused in another system. Most of our packaging materials can be recycled. Lock cylinders, keys, fittings, installation materials and thumb turns can also be recycled as metal waste.
Extensions containing electronics or circuit boards, such as net boxes, key switches, relay cards and key readers must be recycled at an electronic waste collection point.
