BEST Switch™ Tech converts mechanical locks into smartphone-based access

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!

Most buildings have rooms and areas where access is limited to certain users or user groups. Access is often managed by mechanical locks where key management is time-intensive and costly.

Thanks to LEGIC’s compact, programmable Security Module SM-6310 and Trusted Service LEGIC Connect, mechanical locks can now be instantly upgraded to the latest digital mobile technology using the award-winning Switch™ Tech Core by BEST.

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.

Switch™ Tech excels with outstanding product design

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.
