  • 1aim, a German startup, is building a “ground up” AI platform for offices that combines physical security with artificial intelligence.
  • The product is designed for enterprise though, so having the ability to tailor access to specific doors, rooms, and areas without having to manage badges or physical passes is the scaled benefit.
  • The locks, in this system, can be retro-fitted to any door type and they’re opened by waving a smartphone in front of them – taking advantage of a proprietary encryption system involving randomized colors and light – which makes it far more secure than keys or badges.
  • But, smart locks aren’t new or special, and we certainly don’t need AI to control them.
