LockState Uses Ayla’s IoT Platform for Smartlocks
Solution enables remote management of smartlocks and smartplug via Internet-connected PCs and smartphones
15 December 2015 - LockState, a leading manufacturer of smartlocks announced today that it is using Ayla Networks’ Internet of Things (IoT) platform and cloud services for its product line of RemoteLock and RemotePlug.
The advantages of IoT connectivity for smartlocks include the ability to set schedules monitor use codes, remotely create and delete codes, view access history, and receive alerts when doors are used.
“If you don’t have an IoT strategy today, then we believe you risk extinction as a company, said Nolan Mondrow, CEO and founder of LockState (above). At LockState, we view IoT as the merger of distinct technologies. We rely on Ayla to expertly manage the IoT and cloud connectivity and to ensure that transportation of command and data to our locks is secure and reliable. This enables us to focus on making our products and customer experience great.”
The Ayla IoT platform provides comprehensive device, cloud and mobile app connectivity. It allows manufacturers to get secure, reliable connected products to market with minimal time, cost and effort. It also enables them to improve multiple aspects of their business based on data generated by the connected devices.
“We have been working with LockState for 18 months to bring cloud connectivity to everything LockState offers,” said David Friedman, CEO and co-founder of Ayla Networks (left). “LockState understands the transformational potential of the IoT and is looking to Ayla to simplify its path to connectivity.”
LockState plans to demonstrate a range of products at the upcoming Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas in early January. They include RemoteLock 6i and the RemoteLock 5i WiFi door locks. The former is a commercial grade door lock, and the latter is an upgraded version of the company’s consumer door lock.
At CES the company plans also to show its WiFi RemotePlug and its LockState Connect system. The latter is a portal that allows consumers to connect WiFi enabled devices such as thermostats and door locks to existing Wi-Fi routers and then control these home devices from an internet connected computer or smartphone from anywhere in the world.
