About Digital Keys

At Digital Keys, we revolutionize the way people, businesses, and assets interact with one another through cutting-edge IoT technology solutions, innovative communications, and advanced data analytics.

Our story

In the early 2000s, one of our co-founders, Steve Dunn, worked as an Asset Manager in two Australian local governments. He was responsible for managing numerous metal keys for community centres, art galleries, public toilets, libraries, sporting clubs, and other assets. However, Steve found managing all these metal keys for temporary access for staff, contractors, volunteers, and community members to be an ongoing nightmare. Lost keys were common, and a lot of time was wasted chasing people down to retrieve the keys. Furthermore, Steve never knew how many unauthorized keys were in circulation in the community, and theft and vandalism were frequent occurrences as metal keys could be copied for a few dollars in a matter of minutes at the local hardware store.

Steve asked himself, "There has to be a better way to manage ongoing key distribution for hundreds of people to hundreds of assets," and with that vision, Digital Keys was founded.

Today, Digital Keys provides complete end-to-end connected 5G IoT smart access control solutions for managing all types of assets. For the first time ever, connected access control can be provided without onsite equipment, onsite network infrastructure, or onsite power, meaning that the possibilities are only limited by your imagination.
