Breakthrough award

Mighton Products’ Avia Smart Lock has been selected as the global winner of the Smart Lock Product of the Year award in the Fourth Annual IoT Breakthrough Awards Program from IoT Breakthrough, a market intelligence organisation that recognises the top companies, technologies and products in the global Internet of Things (IoT) market today.

Avia is Apple HomeKit enabled and is the first smart lock to be accredited by Sold Secure, which is administered by the UK’s Master Locksmiths Association and aimed at reducing the risk of crime by assessing security products.

Avia has designed all its products to meet the enhanced security requirements of external agencies and industry standards and regulations. It was also the first smart lock to be compliant with the UK government code of practice for consumer IoT and ETSI TS 103 645 Consumer IoT security technical specification.

Avia was also the first smart lock to achieve the BSI Internet of Things Verified – residential IoT accreditation.

“Unlike many other smart locks, Avia uses the latest advanced 256-bit encryption for the transfer of data, and Apple HomeKit is widely acknowledged to be the most secure platform available, so the communication between the phone and the lock is protected at the highest level possible,” James Johnson, managing director at IoT Breakthrough, said. “Mighton Products is now a leading force of innovation in the smart lock arena.”

Mike Derham, chairman of Mighton Products, said: “Avia is all about security and about peace of mind, so we didn’t want to make Avia just secure, we wanted to be able to prove Avia’s security credentials too. That’s why we have sent Avia to the world’s best security testing houses for both physical and cyber security testing to be completely scrutinised.”
