The Avia Smart Lock from MIGHTON PRODUCTS has been selected as the global winner of the “Smart Lock Product of the Year” award in the 4th Annual IoT Breakthrough Awards Program from market intelligence organisation IoT Breakthrough.
James Johnson, managing director at IoT Breakthrough, said: “Unlike many other smart locks, Avia uses the latest advanced 256 bit encryption for the transfer of data, and Apple HomeKit is widely acknowledged to be the most secure platform available, so the communication between the phone and the lock is protected at the highest level possible.
“Their innovations with the Avia product continue with their introduction of child safety features, and simply put - Mighton Products is now a leading force of innovation in the smart lock arena. We extend our congratulations to the entire Mighton Products team for taking home this 2020 IoT Breakthrough Award.”
The Avia secure smart lock is the first smart lock to be accredited by Sold Secure, which is administered by the UK’s Master Locksmiths Association. Itwas also the first smart lock to be compliant with the UK Government code of practice for consumer IoT and ETSI TS 103 645 Consumer IoT security technical specification, as well as the first smart lock to achieve the BSI Internet of Things Verified – residential IoT accreditation.
The mission of the IoT Breakthrough Awards program is to recognise the innovators, leaders and visionaries from around the globe in a range of IoT categories, including Industrial and Enterprise IoT, Smart City technology, Connected Home and Home Automation, Connected Car, and many more. This year’s program attracted more than 3,700 nominations from companies all over the world.
Mighton Products chairman Mike Derham said: “Avia is all about security and about peace of mind, so we didn’t want to make Avia just secure, we wanted to be able to prove Avia’s security credentials too. That's why we have sent Avia to the world’s best security testing houses for both physical and cyber security testing to be completely scrutinised, and we are proud to receive their validation, as well as the validation from IoT Breakthrough with this 2020 IoT Breakthrough Award designation.”
