“Haven is the lock, and UniKey is the key. The partnership is a natural fit.”

Haven Lock Inc. (Haven) announces a partnership with smart lock pioneers UniKey Technologies Inc. (UniKey) during the 62nd Annual ASIS Seminar. Haven and UniKey are working together to produce and release Haven Connect, the first truly preventative smart lock. Haven Connect combines the innovative wedge locking device from Haven with the advanced access control system of UniKey to create one of the most innovative products in the home security market.

Haven, based in Nashville, developed a new category of door lock after two years of intense research, engineering, and testing. In addition to UniKey, Haven partnered with world-class mechanical and electrical engineers with extensive experience designing and manufacturing products in the automotive and consumer goods market. Those partnerships resulted in the creation of a new door locking mechanism that is over ten times stronger than a traditional deadbolt. Haven Lock is secured to the floor at the bottom of a door. The lock uses a wedge gate to secure the door while the slim mounting system utilizes the floor and foundation of the home to provide extra strength. Haven Lock will prevent break-ins instead of simply alerting homeowners after the fact.

“We developed a new and innovative locking mechanism that we think will change the industry. We realized that UniKey had already built a world-class user access system, so we felt like it would be the perfect match,” said Haven CMO, Daniel Wipert. “Haven is the lock, and UniKey is the key. The partnership is a natural fit.”

UniKey first came to the public’s attention in May 2012, when Phil Dumas appeared on ABC’s reality series Shark Tank. UniKey is an alternative access control company revolutionizing the way you gain access via keyless entry. UniKey has partnered with Kwikset to produce the most popular smart lock on the market, Kevo. UniKey is a leader of innovation in the smart home industry. They have created a robust platform to power any user access hardware with smart technologies, military grade security, and unique features that push the boundaries of the industry.

Phil Dumas, CEO of UniKey Technologies, said “We are excited to announce that the Haven Connect will be powered by UniKey’s CORE™ platform. Haven’s flagship product represents a massive leap in physical door security, and will be complemented by UniKey’s proven digital Security Essentials™. Haven and UniKey’s partnership is truly synergistic, and we look forward to bringing disruptive technologies to the residential and commercial access control markets together.”
