Smart access for offices

Get a typical keycard system plus a connected smartlock system all in the one package at a more affordable price than existing keycard systems

Meet Government compliances

Does your company have server rooms/computing suites/workplace requirements? We can help you;

  • Meet PCI compliance for credit card transactions (this requires specific access management requirements which NB-IoT smart access can deliver)

  • Meet OH&S requirements or insurance requirements for safety of employees such as knowing when they arrive on which site.

Improve your visitor management

You can improve your visitor management processes with NB-IoT smart access. Here's how;

  • Know which visitor is any room at anytime and how long they have been there.

  • Offer a visitor 'self check-in' process to speed up the process which you can monitor in our cloud based access management software.

Share access with digital keys

Use our access management software to create time-sensitive digital keys in seconds for any user and any room, and email it straight to the user. Great for:

  • Shared meeting rooms, shared labs, shared common/lunch rooms

  • Giving your staff after hours access (and know when they arrive and leave) and also provide access for employees to offsite facilities that require irregular access, so you don't have to copy metal keys.

Featured Customer

TOPdigital Group NB-IoT smartlocks project

Headquartered in Malaga, Spain, Top Digital develops a multitude of activities in various sectors from telecommunications and software development to retailing and the distribution of household appliances and electronics to 40 stores in Spain.


Task - With many of TOPdigital’s customers being large enterprises, purchasing mobile phones, electronics, and security equipment from them, a demand had been emerging for an end-to-end connected smart access control solution that could also be bundled with their existing product range.

Solution Following successful trials in their offices, new access management software and apps were built specific for Spanish shops, offices, banks and hotels. Digital Keys supplied the API’s, the smartlocks and the technical support to develop the product. The smartlocks were connected to the Vodafone Spain NB-IoT network.


Benefit The product was sold to companies all over Spain bundled with TopDigital's existing products - customers included Zurich, banks and credit unions such as BBVA, universities, and a hotel chain in southern Spain.
