What is NB-IoT Smart Access?
We supercharge top-selling keycard locks with NB-IoT technology, so you can get internet connected access control minus all the equipment, and with stronger security and longer battery life.
Instead of using Wi-Fi (which was designed mostly for streaming videos) our smartlocks have in-built IoT SIM cards and small modems to connect to the internet with NB-IoT (a 5G standard technology built specifically for smart device communications) meaning no onsite equipment or infrastructure.
NB-IoT platform and applications
Our NB-IoT platform is hosted at AWS - it enables us to run our cloud based smart access management software and digital keys app and to route data/commands to the global NB-IoT network. Our API's are also available so you can add access control features to your own software/apps.
NB-IoT network integrations
We connect to the Global NB-IoT network (part of 141 mobile operator networks in over 70 countries) through our NB-IoT platform. NB-IoT is designed specifically for smart devices and to handle small amounts of two-way data transmission in the most efficient, secure and reliable manner.
Get unprecedented security with NB-IoT
Granted by GSMA/3GPP, the organisations that manage mobile networks, NB-IoT is the only licenced communications technology for smart devices taking advantage of mobile network encryption, security and privacy features including IPSEC security, Private VPN, 2048 bit RSA Chipset security, and 256 bit military grade SSL encryption.
Our smartlocks also benefits from mobile networks support for user identity confidentiality, entity authentication, confidentiality, data integrity, and mobile equipment identification
Forget Wi-Fi/BLE. NB-IoT smartlocks are better.
