Access Solution of the Future

The modern world is in a constant state of movement. As human needs multiply, technology advances, and possibilities broaden, our future becomes speckled with more and more opportunities for growth and improvement.

The third technology phase

Seeing the success of mechanical and electromechanical access solutions worldwide, ASSA ABLOY’s next phase is a move towards developing intelligent, connected products and cloud-based systems that can digitally control entrance environments effectively, conveniently, and at a lower cost.

E-commerce, shared economy, and home services, are markets experiencing strong demand today. At office spaces or smart homes, door locks with a digital key transmitted by smartphone can safeguard the trust between individuals and companies.

As the sharing economy continues to grow, particularly in the market of e-commerce, digital technology can also help broaden the application of access solutions in daily life, such as with shared housing, vacation homes and vehicles.

Home services like residential home care would also benefit from new access technology. Using digital keys, smartphones, and other connected products, ASSA ABLOY seeks to provide unparalleled secure and convenient solutions for all.

ASSA ABLOY and IoT

We believe that our world-leading products and technologies have put ASSA ABLOY in a secure position to participate in the Internet of Things (IoT) ecosystem, an ever-growing network that fosters endless connections, and enables the collection and analysis of disparate data in real-time and over time.

The data obtained from ASSA ABLOY’s secure authentication solutions, such as movement patterns in and out of buildings, can be of significant value for customers in the future looking to build new and informed business models.

A groundbreaking campaign

ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions began an online-to-offline (O2O) campaign, #takeiteasy, at Yale Smart Shop in Singapore 2019, offering customers the chance to explore smart home products within Yale’s augmented reality ecosystem.

Recognized by the retail category of the International Business Awards in 2019, the creative approach showcased all the benefits that smart living has to offer in an interactive and playful way.

Showcasing an intelligible future

At the 12th China (Guangzhou) International Building Decoration Fair 2019, one of the world’s top building fairs, ASSA ABLOY and Yale were highlighted as true leaders of smart home security products.

Showcasing products like the Yale Smart Door Lock, Smart Home Ecosystem, and Yale Access app, the impressive technologies and strong collaborative effort sets a new standard for innovation and, importantly, excited visitors about the now intelligible future of smart living.
