iLOQ has announced that it has signed an agreement with Everest Infrastructure Partners, which owns thousands of wireless infrastructure locations that help connect communications networks, to roll out battery-free smart locks at telecom towers throughout the US.

According to iLOQ, its lock acquires operating energy from the NFC field generated by a smart device to provide access.

This removes the need for physical keys, batteries and excess wiring from the solution, ensuring maximum security while assuming zero maintenance and minimizing ongoing costs, the company says.

“In partnership with iLOQ, Everest identified an operational solution to better protect our assets, obtain superior access intelligence at our sites and provide enhanced ease of site access to our customers,” said Matt Newton, CEO of Everest Infrastructure Partners.

“We are delighted to partner with iLOQ to become the first US tower owner using battery-free smart locks.

“With our rapidly expanding portfolio, it is essential to deliver our customers the highest quality of service and protection.”

“We have already deployed our ground-breaking, battery-free locking systems in Europe, Asia, Africa and Latin America,” added Joni Lampinen, General Manager, iLOQ USA.

“Thanks to this partnership with Everest, we are honored to also be entering the US market.”
