The smart security specialists at Kubu have been working with experts at the multipoint lock manufacturer Avantis Hardware, and the Emplas fabrication team, to integrate the firm’s patented technology into ‘a ground-breaking new window lock that is truly worthy of such a prestigious partnership’.
The launch of the ‘Intellect by Avantis’ multipoint shootbolt window lock represents the culmination of over 12 months of technical and technological advancement. The new lock helps to cement Emplas as a frontrunner in the ongoing smart journey in the fenestration industry, according to Kubu’s representatives.
“To create this ‘truly secure’ lock, it was imperative to ensure not only first-class PAS24-accredited physical security but industry-leading cyber security too,” they continued.
“The world of smart devices is littered with standards and accreditations, some more credible than others, ranging from battery life expectancy to encryption strength. This makes it ever more difficult for an installer to know who to trust when choosing their smart partner.
“The IASME Consortium is an independent accreditation body that is officially recognised by the UK government and Secured By Design. The IASME team works alongside a network of almost 300 expert organisations across the UK to advise and certify organisations of all sizes in both cyber security and counter fraud.
“The IASME IoT Cyber Scheme has been developed so that companies providing internet-connected products and services can demonstrate that those products that have achieved the appropriate standards, and that their products and services have been independently assessed against all 13 provisions of the world-leading consumer IoT security standard, ETSI EN 303 645, which far exceeds the mandatory three provisions currently being legislated by the UK government.
“Kubu is the first product of its kind to secure IASME Level 2 IoT Accreditation (the highest level possible) for all devices, sensors and software, which perfectly complements the SBD and PAS24 accreditations already obtained for the Avantis ‘Works with Kubu’ door and window multipoint lock ranges.”
Ryan Bromley, cofounder of Kubu Smart, added: “We conducted a lot of research into various accreditation bodies before selecting IASME, as we wanted to ensure our systems were independently subjected to the most stringent tests available. We passed with flying colours, which just goes to prove that you can always be sure you’re secure with Kubu.”
Jody Vincent, Emplas’ sales director, said: “We were the first company to introduce Kubu Smart technology to the UK market on our doors, and are proud to be continuing to provide our customers with incredible sales differentiators by being the first to add such an innovative and fully cyber-security-accredited window lock to our range too.”
