Secured by Design (SBD) has made a key announcement about its member company, Cambridgeshire-based Mighton Products. A statement reads:
SBD member company Mighton Products showcased its Avia Secure Smart Lock at the prestigious FIT Show in May.
The product has achieved SBD’s Secure Connected Device accreditation, having the required standard for both its physical and cyber security attributes.
The Avia Secure Smart Lock boasts a range of innovative and class leading security features and benefits and comes complete with 2 star external handle and 3 star cylinder.
Using the highly secure Apple HomeKit platform, Mighton’s design team analysed every detail and put the lock through the most rigorous of test environments to ensure a product that is genuinely exceptional.
The Avia Secure Smart Lock:
• Uses Apple HomeKit technology and Bluetooth
• Works with iPhone, fob, keypad, iPad, the Apple smartwatch
• Features manual key override
• Works with most handle operated multipoint locking doors
• Can be operated ‘locally’ via Bluetooth and remotely by cloud technology with compatible Apple equipment
• Is protected against ‘man in the middle’ attacks
• Is quick and easy to install
• Gives total control so access can be shared with family and friends via the app
Michelle Kradolfer, SBD’s IoT Technical Officer, said: “I am delighted that Mighton’s Avia Secure Smart Lock has achieved the Secure Connected Device accreditation, adding to their range of Avia products which have already achieved the accreditation.
“It is vitally important to ensure that all IoT products have the right level of security in place to protect consumers and reduce the risk of them falling victim to cyber crime and Mighton’s compliance with the Secure Connected Device accreditation sends a clear message that they recognise the importance of IoT security and are leading by example when it comes to keeping their customers and the public safe.”
Mike Derham Chairman of Mighton Products said “SBD Accreditation is very important to us at Mighton, for all of our relevant products. But as smart locks and related home security products are still relatively new to homeowners, it is more important than ever that they have meaningful and recognisable standards by which they may make important choices. The Secure Connected Device marque is particularly important in that context.”
