Market Leading Lock Manufacturer Chooses SAS Cloud Technology

Munich-based high-tech forge provides cloud access management for market-leading lock manufacturer in the high-end furniture sector

The Munich-based technology company Smart Access Solutions and PS GmbH from Austria - market leader in electromechanical locks in the high-end furniture sector - seal a long-term partnership in the field of “connected locks”. Smart Access Solutions will supply and operate a cloud-based management solution for the electronic locks of PS GmbH. PS will market the new system worldwide directly and via the existing dealer network.

What is unique is that PS locks can now be managed centrally, even without a direct Internet connection. Users of the new system can see the currently stored access rights at any time and can manage them centrally. In addition, users of the innovative system will never again have to worry about empty batteries, as, among other things, the battery voltage is regularly transferred to the cloud-based system.

The new DUAL locks from PS can be opened by smart card, RFID token and by mobile phone app. So the users have the choice. If the customer wishes, the locks can be actively monitored centrally. In the event of suspicious behaviour, an alarm is immediately sounded and the person responsible is notified immediately.

Our SAS Secure Cloud Core system and the new DUAL locks from PS create unique, new possibilities.

says Tobias Stötter, product head and co-founder of Smart Access Solutions.

As a result, completely new digital applications and business models will quickly emerge for our customers. We are very much looking forward to working with PS.

adds the managing director Martin Schmidt.
