Smart access for Education

Get in full control of all your buildings, rooms and assets with connected access control with 4 different opening methods.

Digital keys unlocking

Students can use the digital keys app to unlock any classroom for any date and time period, after being authorised by account administrators.

  • Digital key immediately appears in the students app as unlock button after account administrator generates.

  • Students can make digital key requests in the digital keys app to the account administrator who receive an email and can approve/disapprove with one click.

  • You can also use the Digital Keys app to write to NFC Mifare keycards - our smartlocks are fitted with NFC Mifare chips so you can use them like a typical keycard system  - great for integrating into your existing access control solution.

Cloud-based management software

Colleges and Universities need to manage access for visitors, staff, students, contractors for safety and security. Account administrators can use our cloud-based access management software to:

  • Unlock any smartlock anywhere at anytime by hitting one button (no need to get users to download app)

  • View door activity anytime for any student (who opened which door at which time with which method (NFC, app etc).
