‘First of its kind’
The Avia Apple HomeKit smartlock from MIGHTON is said to be the first of its kind to be awarded the Code of Practice for Consumer Internet of Things (IoT) and ETSI TS 103 645, issued by the European Telecommunication Standards Institute.
The smartlock was submitted for testing by BSI following which the product was certified as being compliant with both the Code of Practice and ETSI Standard. The achievement of these standards ratifies the company’s decision to base the product on Apple HomeKit technology according to chairman Mike Derham.
He said: “This achievement reinforces the principle we set out to achieve whilst developing Avia – that we should engineer in the very best security possible for both the hardware and software elements of our product. This includes the use of the Apple HomeKit security ecosystem and a TS 007 3 star cylinder, the latter of which allows a key override, a crucial back-up feature on smart locks. Peace of mind is the key to gaining consumer trust for smart locks for their homes.”
