iLOQ’s significant partnership with Hoas

iLOQ has signed a framework agreement with Hoas, The Foundation for Student Housing in the Helsinki Region.

With the signing of the agreement, iLOQ’s locking solutions will continue to play a significant role in Hoas’ real estate portfolio of rental homes which are equipped with iLOQ’s unique digital locking and access management solutions.

“We are delighted with the continued cooperation. iLOQ’s agreement with Hoas demonstrates that digital access control is the right solution for student housing, and we are confident that it will replace all mechanical locking in the future. In this field of development, iLOQ is on the brink of a breakthrough. The agreement is also a strong demonstration that we have succeeded in growing our company to a position where we are increasingly involved in student rental housing production,” explains Toni Päivinen, Sales Director, iLOQ Finland.

iLOQ delivers unique, self-powered locking and access control solutions for Hoas properties. The agreement aims to increase collaboration between iLOQ and Hoas and will make iLOQ’s self-powered locking and access control solutions available to more and more tenants.

“This is a great step forward for Hoas and it also provides a good starting point for our future housing solutions. With the help of a digital locking system, Hoas wants to provide residents with easy and safe, yet modern, flexible mobility. If a key is lost, there is no need to replace the locks and there is also an audit trail which will help detect possible misuse,” states Kim Lindholm, Kim Lindholm, Real Estate and Facility Director, Hoas

Digital access control makes daily life easier for residents

“Digital locking and access control are strongly linked to future living, and we are pioneers in this field. People are interested in smart home technology, and digital development is making daily life easier for residents and other users of real estate. As a result of this collaboration, more and more residents will enjoy the security and other benefits of digital access control in the future, states Kai Patja, iLOQ’s Key Account Manager.
