Modern lock solution

2013-08-28

Say goodbye to keys and entry access cards. Here is a modern lock solution that gives staff access to the office using their phones. Kinnarps checks out an app which will revolutionise office security.

The sustainability advocate and designer Yves Behar has in collaboration with the entrepreneur Jason Johnson designed the August Smart Lock, a lock system that is controlled using a mobile phone app. Using Bluetooth the lock detects when you are approaching a door and opens it for you. The app also enables you to only give entry access at certain times, which is ideal for instance for service staff who only visit the office on preset dates. In particular it is possible to check if the office is locked or not using a phone - and rectify matters remotely.  Simple and groundbreaking all at once.
