ASSA ABLOY sees a huge growth opportunity for digital door locks and believes they will replace many traditional mechanical locks in people’s homes, offices and hotels within the next decade.iRevo, which ASSA ABLOY acquired in 2007, is currently cooperating with all of the Group’s divisions on digital door lock projects.

”iRevo has revolutionized the local market in Korea,” says Edgar Chin, President North Asia. “And since they have walked down this road and designed innovative and appealing products, we can all learn a lot from their experiences. iRevo also has experience in conducting Voice of the Customer exercises to truly understand their needs.”
