iLOQ has innovated the world’s first battery-free lock cylinder. It generates the energy needed for unlocking from an NFC-enabled cellphone running iLOQ´s app. This secure solution has been designed specifically to unlock a world of possibilities for multi-family residential, commercial, educational and municipal properties, and critical infrastructure and logistics sectors.
All kinds of properties and different kinds of industries are facing similar challenges – how to maximize security and ensure smooth and efficient access while simplifying administration and keeping lifecycle costs low.
With iLOQ, an NFC-enabled cellphone is the key. Access rights to all types of locks (for example door locks, camlocks and padlocks) can be remotely shared and multiple properties can be conveniently consolidated into one user-friendly and secure cloud-based software platform, saving resources and simplifying access management administration.
The access rights can be updated in real time and canceled if necessary maximizing security by ensuring that only the right people have access to the right places at the right time.
Benefits of the system
Up-to-date access rights directly to your cellphone
NFC is at the heart of the iLOQ product family. iLOQ locks generate the required power for confirming access rights and opening from an NFC field created by a key. The key is simply a cellphone running the iLOQ app.
Ease of daily operations
Secure and efficient access is essential for a smoothly running modern society. iLOQ offers the needed security paired with efficient over-the-air access sharing that eases operating logistics and reduces costs associated with mechanical and battery-powered electronic locks. Managing numerous properties and multiple personnel has been simplified.
Large commercial properties, hospitals and critical infrastructure, for example, regularly face the challenge of managing numerous sites and vast numbers of locks and personnel. This has traditionally meant a huge number of keys are in constant circulation. With iLOQ, a cellphone is the key. Access rights for all property locks can be easily shared and managed using iLOQ’s cloud-based SaaS platform.
The security risks related to lost or stolen physical keys have been eliminated with iLOQ´s solution. Access rights are sent remotely and in real time to a cellphone. They can be instantly updated and, where necessary, canceled. You can keep track of who has access to what with features like time-restricted access and real-time audit-trail reports. Security is underlined with a TLS-protected client-server communications encryption of sensitive data.
Access management is an important, but not the only, aspect of modern building management. Today’s buildings comprise a complex ecosystem of various specialized functions such as burglar alarms or HVAC systems. iLOQ offers an open application programming interface (API) that enables integration to virtually any system. This helps improve customers’ flexibility and operational efficiency by sharing data between the different information systems they use.
iLOQ’s battery-free cellphone-based solution eliminates time and costs associated with lost keys and lock replacements. It also wipes out maintenance-related travel related, for example, to changing batteries or dealing with blocked keyways ensuring significant savings over the solution’s lifecycle.
