No batteries. No worries.
In 2007, we introduced the world’s first and only electronic locking system which harvests the needed energy from key insertion. The management of access rights with the digital iLOQ S10 locking system is easier and more secure than with mechanical systems. Its maintenance and life cycle expenses are significantly lower than those of mechanical or battery-operated electromechanical locking systems.
No batteries. No keys. No worries.
In 2016, we announced the iLOQ S40 NFC product family, which strengthens our position as the pioneer in self-powered locking. iLOQ S40 NFC is the world’s first access control system that harvests the needed energy from an NFC mobile phone. The phone functions both as a key and a power source, making batteries or cables unnecessary. It presents a superior solution for master-key lock systems in multiple sites over a wide geographical area.

In accordance with our environmental programme, we aim to conserve natural resources and the environment. For example, we maximise the reusability of our products, minimise battery waste, favour 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.
As our locks and keys are fully reprogrammable, they can be returned to their factory state 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 electrical and electronic waste collection point.
