With trusted global brands such as Yale, Mul-T-Lock, TESA, FAB, Vachette, and KESO, ASSA ABLOY has the largest and most advanced range of residential smart locks on the market. Innovative locks including the ENTR®, Doorman and Conexis® L1 have been integrated successfully with multiple smart-home systems and diverse platforms which transform domestic security and residential services.

Service providers all over Europe—telecom companies, utilities, smart-home specialists, home care providers, holiday rental agencies, and more—have already integrated smart door locks to build better services for their customers. For this new generation of service provider, a smart home starts with a smart door.

Opening doors to connected living

In Sweden, customers of a PostNord pilot no longer need to wait at home for a postal delivery. They can have parcels delivered inside their front door, if it is equipped with a Yale smart door lock. This integrated, opt-in service works via a single-use PIN code digital key issued automatically to an authorised PostNord driver.

In Italy, Home at Hotel holiday rental apartments in Rome and Milan are secured with an ENTR smart door lock. These integrate with the SCLAK smartphone-managed access system, making it possible for guests to enjoy their stay without key hassles. Home by Hotel can now easily deliver value-added services, including grocery shopping and extra cleaning on demand.

In Turkey, around 1,700 smart door locks are being installed at Future Park, a new Istanbul development with apartments built around a home automation concept. Residential technology specialists Aypro designed a custom app-powered system for residents and integrated ASSA ABLOY locks. In the words of Alper Uludag, Project Manager at Hiper Gayrimenkul, Future Park’s developer: “Making the decision to work with a trusted global supplier of smart home security like ASSA ABLOY was the best choice.”

Future Park Istanbul and Yale Smart Door Locks

Residential technology integration specialists Aypro are working to deploy nearly 1,700 ASSA ABLOY smart locks at the Future Park development in Istanbul.

In the UK’s smart-home residential market, Yale locks’ seamless integration with Samsung SmartThings enables door control via the Amazon Echo speaker. Say, “Alexa, lock my lock,” and your wishes are carried out. Can’t remember if you locked up at night? Ask, “Alexa, is my lock locked?”

A smart home starts with a smart door lock

Doors are as individual as the people who live behind them. To select the right door lock for any system or service, you need to consider door complexity, including multiple geographical standards and norms, door materials and profiles, as well as lock types.

ASSA ABLOY offers smart lock solutions for all markets. Because of its unique global reach, the group has a wide portfolio of advanced smart door locks for Euro, Scandinavian and other relevant door profiles. If your customer wants a smart door lock, chances are ASSA ABLOY has one to fit.

Easy integration

ASSA ABLOY also makes integration easy. The radio modules on our locks use multiple wireless technology platforms to connect devices. ASSA ABLOY open connectivity includes Z-Wave, ZigBee, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Seos®, Thread, and more.

In addition, an expert team of ASSA ABLOY smart security specialists provides free installation training. Partners also have access to our unique global knowledge base in residential security, part of which was published in the 2016 “Smart Home Security Report.” Potential partners can download the complimentary report here.
