iLOQ 5 Series – making life accessible

Almost 20 years ago, Finnish innovator in the locking industry – iLOQ – took a great leap forward. It was the first company to steer a path away from mechanical locking and lead the way in developing self-powered digital locking and mobile access management systems. 

To date, over 2 million keys and 1 million cylinders have been delivered. Now, with the launch of the iLOQ 5 Series, it is possible to enhance security, minimize administration and reduce lifecycle costs still further.

One highly intelligent software solution

Thanks to new opportunities offered by digitalization and the internet of things, it is now possible to manage the unique iLOQ S5 and iLOQ S50 locking solutions from the same easy-to-use software platform. Creating, adjusting and revoking access rights can also be handled quickly, securely and remotely.

Multiple access possibilities

The iLOQ 5 Series is a flexible, modifiable locking solution that conveniently lets customers choose what ‘key’ they want to use; the iLOQ S5 digital key, the iLOQ S50 mobile phone key (iOS or Android), a fob, a tag or even a PIN code. The choice is theirs.

Keys, locks and readers learn from each other

A unique benefit of the iLOQ 5 Series is that it keeps accesses continually up to date by way of device-to-device communication. This advanced feature allows a vast amount of data (such as a list of blocked keys, time limitations, latest time, audit trails and accesses of the key) to be remotely updated and quickly shared in both directions between the management software and the readers, keys and locks in a building before the door is unlocked. This minimizes the need to travel between sites and administration offices to manually import or export data to locks and keys, reduces the expenditure associated with system wiring and drives down lifecycle costs and impact on the environment.

Utilising a smartphone as a key, power source and as a communication channel

With iLOQ’s use of NFC technology, a smartphone acts as both a key and a power source when used with iLOQ S50 locks. In the iLOQ 5 Series, they can soon also be used as a communication channel to update the access rights of iLOQ S5 keys and iLOQ S50 fobs with the unique iLOQ 5 Series application.

State-of-the-art security

With all devices connected and communicating with each other, security is maximized while administration costs are minimized. Lost, stolen or unreturned keys can be easily blocked. The latest time feature ensures that expired keys have no access without any administrative actions.

Streamlined operations

iLOQ 5 Series’ standard, open application programming interface (API) allows integration with modern information-sharing and booking systems and customer personal databases. This has many helpful use cases; for example, booking of communal spaces can be updated using touchscreens in the premises or on mobile apps and shared with the iLOQ keys. No additional wiring to doors is needed.

Battery-free solution

In common with iLOQ’s other digital and mobile locking systems, iLOQ 5 Series is a battery- and cable-free solution. The more keys and locks properties contain, the more the costs are reduced. In large systems, this saves potentially millions of euros in purchasing and maintenance costs over the lifecycle of the locking system. iLOQ’s self-powered solutions also have built-in sustainability. In 2019 alone, they eliminated 28,000 kg of battery waste and, compared to mechanical locking solutions, 7,000 kg of metal waste.

iLOQ 5 Series is highly scalable making it ideal for single buildings, dozens of premises or properties spread over a vast area with thousands of locked objects. By maximizing security and minimizing administration and lifecycle costs, it provides the simplest, and easiest way to boost the value of properties. At the same time, it reduces consumption of resources and impact on the environment.

“From one company, there is now a solution that fulfills’ all access management needs for all properties. For building owners, operators and key holders, the new features and benefits offered by the iLOQ 5 Series bring high security and unparalleled ease of access management paired with competitive lifecycle costs and major savings,” states iLOQ President and CEO, Heikki Hiltunen.
