What to know about our partner BEST

Switch™ Tech excels with outstanding product design

The LEGIC Security Platform demonstrates how an existing and widespread mechanical door lock standard can be upgraded to the latest, smartphone-based access technology in no time at all.

The cylinder of the mechanical lock can simply be replaced with a smartphone-enabled version. This offers numerous advantages such as secure authentication via Bluetooth™ or NFC, remote-controlled access control and monitoring.

Our partner BEST from dormakaba Group chose the LEGIC security platform to develop such a system for the North American market. With the newly launched, mobile-enabled Switch™ Core, mechanical locks are easily upgraded to electronic access control. The result is the simple administration of authorizations as well as comprehensive transparency of access history – immediately with just a few clicks via smartphone.
