Klevio is a smart intercom that opens your doors using your phone – without replacing your existing locks, capable of opening multiple doors, and with virtual keys easily shared to a variety of people through its app – covering everything from being at home to let the cleaner in to accessibility, and letting in the Airbnb guests to managing multiple buildings remotely. Virtual keys can be controlled based on time and location – so your cleaner can only open the door when in front of it.
Rather than replacing your lock and keys, Klevio One connects to an existing intercom system inside a home and is operated via an iOS or Android app. Klevio can be fitted in any home with no need to change existing locks. It works with multiple doors and there’s no need to modify the communal area of apartment buildings when installing it, since the device is located within the flat. The app connects to the device, allowing users to open their private and communal doors from anywhere with a swipe and press of a button.
- The first product, Klevio One, is a smart intercom that lets you open doors and share digital keys from anywhere, using your phone.
- Devices are now available to be installed in London following a successful pilot with 1,000 users; expansion to major UK cities is planned for later this year
- Klevio can be used in everything from your home to a network of units for businesses
- The company has raised £1.2m to date from prominent London angels including co-founders of onefinestay and LocalGlobe
Klevio is complementary to traditional keys rather than a replacement. It provides users with new options to manage their homes and properties without any compromise on security. Users keep their existing locks and old keys as a backup, and the use of Klevio is not obvious to anyone outside the building.
With Klevio, users can also share and revoke digital keys instantly, a feature that comes in handy whenever someone needs access to a home when the owner is not present, or to let in an Airbnb guest or a contractor.
Greg Marsh, onefinestay co-founder and an early investor in Klevio, said: “Managing multiple properties is hard. At onefinestay we managed thousands of high end homes in city centres. And when we realised how much time we were wasting getting keys to our guests, we started working on the keyless entry system that has today been perfected as Klevio One. Klevio saves time for apartment hosts, property managers and householders and, as a smart home device, it also improves security. I’m proud to see something we invented at onefinestay become a category leading product in its own right. More than anything that is a testament to the hard work and expertise of the Klevio team.”
Currently, Klevio is available in London where 1,000 users tested digital keys in a successful 10-month pilot. The Company has plans to expand coverage across the UK and beyond.
