Abloy launches mobile digital key and extremely weatherproof Bluetooth padlock | #TpromoCom #Abloy #Lock #Security | Announced today, the new ABLOY® BEAT locking solution includes a novel digital key, a mobile app and an IP68-rated, weatherproof Bluetooth padlock. The future-proof solution is designed to boost operational efficiency while securing critical infrastructure, commercial institutions and industry sites. ABLOY BEAT is managed with the visual ABLOY® OS user interface.
Helsinki, Finland (March 17, 2020) – Finland-based security and locking solutions provider Abloy Oy today unveiled its newest innovation in digital keys, the ABLOY BEAT. The new keyless solution combines three main components: a digital key, a mobile application and a heavy-duty, Bluetooth padlock. All is managed with the visual ABLOY OS user interface.
Among businesses worldwide, there is a growing need for the convenience and accessibility of highly secure keyless access solutions – either as an addition to existing workflows or as a standalone solution. Especially in remote areas or situations where carrying a physical key can bring the possibility of corruption or even danger for the holder, a mobile solution is also in demand.
“BEAT is part of the ongoing ‘keyvolution’, heralding a new era of effortless connectivity, without a physical key. Yet there are no keyless locks. The key has just taken on some new forms. Leveraging on our heritage and expertise in high-level security, we have built a new digital key. It is encrypted with the most advanced Seos® credential technology, developed by HID Global. Used with your mobile device, the digital key provides best-in-class security and privacy protection,” said Jorma Issakainen, Vice President, ABLOY Critical Infrastructure.
Combining a digital key with a heavy-duty Bluetooth padlock
BEAT is designed especially for professional physical protection of critical infrastructure, businesses and industry sites. While securing property, it also offers customers improved operational efficiency, reducing both logistics and costs. It also saves on fuel emissions, making it a sustainable option. The solution is intended to be used in sectors like telecom and data centers, transportation and logistics, utilities (water, electricity, gas) and mining.
The digital BEAT key connects to the physical heavy-duty, Bluetooth padlock, designed to perform in harsh environments and remote areas. The padlock has an IP68 protection rating, a case-hardened steel body and LED indications for lock status. It complements the current ABLOY® SUPER WEATHER PROOF range of padlocks.
Future-ready to meet changing security needs
BEAT can be integrated with existing security workflow solutions in use, but it can also be implemented as a standalone locking solution with ABLOY OS. ABLOY OS enables managing keys, locks, and access rights on-the-go and remotely from a single, easy-to-use and highly visual interface.
BEAT is the latest addition to Abloy’s comprehensive and evolving digital portfolio of future-ready security and access control solutions. The news announced today is the first phase of the BEAT solution, and the company plans to unveil new features in the future.
With today’s launch the ABLOY digital portfolio now includes both keyless (BEAT), electromechanical (PROTEC2 CLIQ) and mechanical (ABLOY® PROTEC2) options. All options, including the mechanical PROTEC2, can in the near future be managed with the same ABLOY OS interface. ABLOY Competence Centers, sales units and distributors on six continents provide customers with technical expertise, professional service and support.
Starting from today, ABLOY BEAT will be made available globally in stages. It will be showcased on international trade shows such as Expo Seguridad (Mexico) in April, ISC Brasil (Brazil) in June, ISC West (USA) in July, as well as IFSEC International (UK) and GSX (USA) in September. Samples will also be available for examination at ABLOY distribution offices.

Parks Associates today announced executives from Comcast and ADT will deliver keynotes at the firm’s 24th annual CONNECTIONS™: The Premier Connected Home Conference, May 19-21 at the Hyatt Regency San Francisco Airport in San Francisco, California. They will join a lineup that includes ANGI Homeservices/Handy and Vivint Smart Home, addressing business models, new technologies, and partnerships impacting the growth of solutions for consumers at home.
Noopur Davis, EVP, Chief Product and Information Security Officer, Comcast, and Bob Kupbens, President, Chief Strategy and Product Officer, ADT, will address ways to leverage connectivity in the home through partnerships, product integrations, and new solutions that create a valuable experience for consumers while also addressing data privacy and security. Oisin Hanrahan, Chief Product Officer, ANGI Homeservices; Co-founder & CEO, Handy, and Jim Nye, Chief Product Operations Officer, Vivint Smart Home, are also presenting keynotes at the executive conference.
Early sponsors include Alarm.com, Rapid Response Monitoring, Cirrent, Everise, Firedome, Intellithings, MMB Networks, PassiveBolt, Z-Wave, Zen Ecosystems, Aprilaire, Sprosty Network, Wi-Charge, Gadgeon, and Inspire.
Parks Associates’ research finds nearly 60% of smart home device owners prefer to control these devices via an app on their smartphone. Among these, 31% express a preference for an app that controls a single device, while 28% prefer an app that can control all smart home devices.
“Companies can extend the value of smart home solutions for consumers by extending benefits throughout the home,” said Elizabeth Parks, President, Parks Associates. “At CONNECTIONS™, we welcome industry leaders from all areas of the consumer technology ecosystems to discuss strategies to extend value to the consumer and build on today’s leading business models.”
Parks Associates notes that top players are pursuing the goal of enhancing consumer value and engagement through three different strategies.
“The three main strategies are custom smart home controller installation, a cooperative platform by a service provider, and DIY products such as voice-based platforms,” Parks said. “Companies like Control4, Josh.ai, and Savant provide a premium service with a custom smart home controller that can control virtually all devices through a single app. Service providers such as Alarm.com, Vivint, and Comcast are leveraging their existing platforms in the home. Finally, many manufacturers are deploying voice-based platforms, like the Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant, which are having an enormous impact on the ability to control and manage different devices in the home.”
Parks Associates’ 24th annual CONNECTIONS™: The Premier Connected Home Conference will take place May 19-21, 2020, at the Hyatt Regency San Francisco Airport in San Francisco.

San Francisco could become the first city in the country to ban government agencies from using facial recognition technology.
The “Stop Secret Surveillance Ordinance” would prevent government agencies, including police, from using facial recognition in law enforcement. The bill passed unanimously in a committee vote on Monday and will move to the San Francisco board of supervisors for a final vote on 14 May.
