Company description

Leveraging my experience as a Commercial Landlord I set up Standard Access, developed our unique cloud based patent pending solution. We have developed both the hardware (smart hub, receiver and smart lock) and software (enterprise level platform & App) tools to enable landlords and property managers to securely manage access to any number of buildings for any number of people from anywhere. We created cloud keys, so it allows monetised time restricted access, improves security, allows the client to specify who, how, where, when and for how long a user can have access. Our patent pending technology uses an encrypted sound byte(Sonic Handshake) via our app on your smartphone to open doors. It is now recognised that our encrypted sound byte and proprietary technology is far more secure, robust and the only cross platform protocol that any smartphone can use. The biggest challenge I experienced managing a portfolio of Commercial Real Estate was managing Physical Access, Key Holding, Letting of space and collecting rent.


Business model

Our business model is to design leading edge access solutions using date over sound and to commercialise via real products initially (locks). We design and develop in-house but manufacture and assemble using 3rd parties. We focus on commercial and industrial customers where we can sell multiple units to one customer.

Competitive advantage

We win on low power usage, an enterprise level platform that can scale to manage any number of doors and users. A protocol that is not limited to having the latest Smartphone any phone can use it, no wifi needed, we use soundwaves not radio waves so our tech can be implemented in any facility where say radio waves are banned. Our time restricted access can be monetised, we use EDGE, IoT, Sim and Wifi or combination thereof. 24 hour technical support, patent. Standard Access is unique since it does not rely on Radio signals to communicate between the door-lock and the app using instead Data over Sound. This means our product does not rely on network coverage to operate and is not impacted by radio interference. This makes our solution suitable for deployment in safety critical environments where RF is restricted by regulation.
