In-home care and smarter independent living

More and more people with disabilities choose to live in their own homes. This creates new challenges for domestic design: the “standard” set-up for a residence includes several barriers to independent living. The biggest barrier of all? The front door.

With a smart door lock, there’s no longer the need to carry cumbersome mechanical keys. A door can be configured to lock automatically behind you, or even to open without any force.

Door and lock standards often differ greatly from country to country, and picking the right smart door lock can make the difference between success and failure for any service. Our large range offers varied, advanced functionality across multiple smart lock models and all international markets, so we can find a solution that does exactly what you need.

Case studies below explain just some of the many smart solutions we have already implemented.

Could the right smart door lock help carers, cleaners and family members deliver in-home care services more easily?
