Smartlocks in action are quite amazing, especially when connected to a last generation cloud system. Sofia Locks proposes cutting edge technologies that doesn’t need any intervention on doors or structures. Thanks to the cloud system, smartlocks can be placed over a space of any extension, like different floors, different buildings or even different countries, managing all these devices by one single control panel. Such systems are designed to expand as the company grows, thus they can scale from a stand alone solution to controlling hundreds of doors and users.
By choosing an online access control system, a company takes a step toward the future, toward agile and innovative business models. Virtual badges on smartphones are the real revolution here, still a reliable access control system must respond to a number of different needs, such as also supporting traditional badges for real time management.
