With the help of Switch Tech, electronic access controls can be incorporated into any door. The mechanical core of a lock is simply replaced with a digital substitute that is compatible with cylinder, mortice and other locks. This makes the system eminently suitable for retrofitting. It can be unlocked using a smartphone or a key fob. Mechanical keys are no longer necessary. The platform uses Bluetooth technology to, for example, create accounts, configure the system or carry out diagnostics.
