Tapkey Teams with DOM Security

More big news on the partnership front: Tapkey is proud to have established a partnership with European locking and access solution company DOM Security to change the way people gain—and share—access to homes and offices.

We’ll be unveiling our new solutions at the prestigious Security Essen trade show in Germany next week (September 27–30, 2016).

A winning team

“We are proud to introduce the best-of-breed teaming of DOM hardware and Tapkey secure cloud-based software,” said Erik Mastenbroek, Group Marketing Director at DOM.

“Tapkey pioneered—and patented—the cloud-based software solution that transforms ordinary smartphones into extraordinarily smart digital keyrings,” notes Tapkey CEO Gilbert Hoedl. “It’s the ideal way to bring exciting new functionality and ease of use to DOM’s legendary hardware and electronics, such as digital cylinders, padlocks and wall readers.”

Joerg Braun, who manages DOM’s smartphone-enabled products, explains why the company was impressed with the Tapkey platform: “It’s sophisticated yet versatile. Their expertise in scalable cloud services, mobile apps and digital security made them the perfect partner for us going forward.”

Unparalleled power made easy

By integrating Tapkey technology into its offerings, DOM allows end-users to unlock locks by simply tapping them with practically any NFC- (near-field communication) enabled smartphone which contains the matching Tapkey “mobile key.” The Tapkey solution is unique in that, unlike competing technologies in this fast-growing space, it is not “slaved” to a particular phone number or wireless carrier; it doesn’t even require a persistent Internet connection. Virtual “keys” can be shared—or revoked—as easily as sending a text message. “It’s simple to access numerous Tapkey-enabled products, such as car-sharing or smart boxes, with just one app,” explains Tapkey COO Gregor Zehetner.

We hope to see you at Security Essen. Look for us in Hall 10, Booth 10B08.
