DENVER, CO – April 12, 2021 – RemoteLock, the leader in universal access control, today announced that Japan-based West’s connected smart lock can now be directly controlled in RemoteLock’s platform. The move brings yet another industry leading lock under management within RemoteLock’s universal access control platform, further expanding RemoteLock’s worldwide reach and providing additional access control options to the Japan market.
West, a leading lock manufacturer in Japan, launched its E06 Connected Lock in May 2020 and it is already in use in commercial applications throughout the country. The integration with RemoteLock positions West alongside other top lock manufacturers whose smart locks are being controlled on RemoteLock’s platform globally.
“The integration of West’s lock to RemoteLock is another important step forward for universal access control,” said Nolan Mondrow, CEO of RemoteLock. “By adding West to our platform, we are not only further expanding the global footprint of RemoteLock but confirming the market demand for cloud-based access control that controls multiple lock technologies from a single platform.”
Kozo Keikaku Engineering (KKE), a professional design and engineering firm, RemoteLock investor, and sole distributor of RemoteLock’s universal access control platform in Japan, helped to facilitate the West integration.
“We were thrilled to partner with KKE to bring the West integration to life,” said Mondrow. “They were instrumental in ensuring that West’s new, innovative smart lock could be controlled by RemoteLock to improve our coverage in the Japan market. We look forward to our continued partnership as we add more manufacturers and service providers to our software platform.”
