Self-powered locking system

iLOQ is the only electronic locking system in the world that self-powers by harvesting electricity from key insertion. Its programmable locks and keys can therefore operate without batteries or cables. In sites with master-key lock systems, such as schools and public facilities, iLOQ provides the advantages of electronic locking to all doors without the need for expensive cabling or frequent replacements of batteries. The system can easily expand to a remotely-controlled access management system, where the electric locks of a main door are remotely managed and time-controlled.


Low life cycle costs

The iLOQ S10 has low maintenance costs. The solution eliminates the need to replace locks, keys or batteries while providing significant savings for large locking systems (with many locks and keys in use). Reusable digital keys means maximizing efficiency of materials and cutting down on waste. Additionally, iLOQ is easy to set-up and install, as the lock cylinder is compatible with modern lock cases without the need for modifications.


A consistent level of high security

The iLOQ S10 ensures a consistent level of high security, as both the locks and keys are fully programmable. The access rights are managed with easy-to-use cloud-based software, where the placement of locks is displayed on floor plans of the property. Locks and keys are updated with a programming device that uses a separate programming key for data encryption. The physical (digital) keys are protected from copying by a strong rolling code encryption – while mechanical keys are currently copied using 3D printers and local locksmiths. iLOQ also helps examine misuse using digital identification. This allows all data associated with opening (or attempting to open the lock) to be logged on the lock cylinder memory for future investigation.


A sustainable solution for locking challenges

The management of an extensive and complex system of locks with traditional methods is labour-intensive, expensive and often impossible in practice. Mechanical locking systems are inflexible, and require the locking to be planned in advance for the entire life cycle of the property. In contrast, the iLOQ S10 system is fully modifiable depending on the use of the facilities and their users’ wishes. The option to expand the system to a lightweight and practical access management system also ensures that future needs are met.


Four unbeatable benefits

Lost key = no replacements of locks and keys in use

The access rights of a lost iLOQ Key are removed from the system quickly, easily and inexpensively without the need to change or re-key any locks. There is no need to change any of the keys still in use and the property’s high level of security is retained year after year.

Key management is simple and always up-to-date

iLOQ enables the management of an up-to-date key registry with easy-to-use software. The key management of several properties or a system of even thousands of locks can be done centrally. Access rights are loaded onto the keys electronically, making the handing over of new keys simple and fast.

Access management in the same system

The self-powered iLOQ S10 -locking system can be expanded to a lightweight and practical iLOQ S10 Online access management system. Selected doors can be installed with remote-controlled lock cylinders, RFID and PIN code readers and time-controlled electronic doors. For example, the sports facilities of a school can be scheduled to open with a PIN code during a certain time.

Locking adapts to changes in facilities

When the function or arrangement of the facilities is changed, access rights can be updated quickly and easily. Keys and locks do not need to be changed, only reprogrammed. iLOQ also allows for the programming of access rights on the same key, enabling it to unlock anything from doors and cam locks to padlocks. A single iLOQ Key can replace the burdensome key bunch.


iLOQ S10 is the only electronic locking system in the world that is self-powered by harvesting the needed energy from the key insertion. This means locks and keys operate without batteries.

The battery-free locking system is easy and affordable to maintain. There is no need to replace batteries, and locks and keys are always operational. Over time, the battery-free iLOQ system significantly saves money and protects the environment.

The biggest advantage of iLOQ S10 is rekeying of cylinders by programming. iLOQ Manager is an easy-to-use program. Locks are also reusable, so iLOQ is also suitable for buildings that are to be refurbished.

With several social education places in Sjælland, Soranahus places great emphasis on creating a pleasant, safe and cosy environment for the young people placed. Our choice of locking system was due on features such as the discrete size of the cylinder, no requirement for maintenance or changing of batteries, flexible self-service solution and the ability to differentiate staff and resident access without high costs when keys are lost.

Max Seeger, Deputy Manager Soranahus

Kungsbacka municipality has chosen to install iLOQ in all new buildings and also also gradually replaces old conventional locking systems prioritising the ones with lost keys. We chose iLOQ on basis of the flexibility and ease in removing keys, and not being bound to a locking scheme at possible operational changes etc.

Ari Svangren, Facility Manager Kungsbacka Kommun

In the past, we had a mechanical lock system and lost a lot of keys, replacing keys was expensive and time consuming. Now that we use an iLOQ digital lock system, the management of the keys has been greatly improved, which is cost-effective!

Theo de Laat, Gebouwbeheerder Melkweg

An iLOQ key can be programmed with individual access rights, and so easily changes in the system when a user’s tasks change. When a key is stolen, replacing the cylinders and re-distributing keys is no longer necessary.

Ron Jansson, Facility Assistant Schravenlant Lyceum

One of the reason for choosing iLOQ is the ease, speed, and affordability of removing a lost key. Also, the use of one key system instead of several systems, and the decrease in the number of keys for one user influenced the decision for iLOQ.

Kalevi Paviala, System Expert Tampere University of Technology

In the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen we want to guarantee a high level of safety. With the choice of iLOQ’s digital lock system, we have organized this security. When a key is lost, it can quickly and easily be programmed out and the security is restored.

Wout Braber, Technische staf Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen

We, as the municipality of Amersfoort, have calculated the choice of iLOQ digital lock systems with the large number of mechanical keys, and we can now manage the lock system more flexibly.

Manon Vermeulen, Medewerker facility desk Municipality of Amersfoort

With the choice for iLOQ digital locking, we free up time in the daily work of my team so they can focus on their security tasks.

Jelle de Jager, Hoofd beveiliging Erasmus University Rotterdam

The iLOQ smart locking system can be easily and flexibly retrofitted, even in our existing buildings. As it works without batteries, there is no need for any maintenance – this saves annual costs and is good for the environment. iLOQ is modular and its programming extremely flexible. Access authorisations can be managed seamlessly and securely on a decentralised basis.
