A smartphone as a key and power source
Security and efficient access control priorities for Cellnex operations. The Company recognized the quality and innovation of the iLOQ S50 product range and deployments began already in Q2 of 2020.
Designed specifically, for example, for facilities that are a vital part of the infrastructure, iLOQ S50 is a keyless solution. The energy needed for unlocking comes from a smartphone running the iLOQ S50 mobile app. Access rights can be updated remotely in real time, and multiple sites can be conveniently consolidated into one user-friendly and secure cloud-based software platform.
As a battery-free solution, iLOQ S50 is helping Cellnex reduce maintenance costs and eliminate battery waste and the environmental impact of travelling between sites and administration offices to update access rights.
“We are delighted that our partnership with Cellnex is strengthening. We are pleased to see that deployments of iLOQ S50 are accelerating throughout Europe, and we look forward to continuing to support Cellnex in their quest to optimize security,” states Heikki Hiltunen, President and CEO, iLOQ.
