This portfolio is offered as part of the Internet of Things IP Auction, with a bidding deadline of April 23rd, 2015.
“This is a novel way of connecting our work and living spaces to our mobile devices,” says Dean Becker, CEO of ICAP Patent Brokerage. “This is an important portfolio for smartphone manufacturers, QR code software developers, and smart lock manufacturers.”
Key Characteristics & Benefits
With a 2013 priority date, the portfolio for sale describes a system and method to control locks (e.g., hotel, home and business door locks) using a smartphone and QR code, obviating the need for either conventional metal keys or programmable plastic cards. Users receive a QR code associated with a specific door via email or a mobile phone application to their device, which displays the machine-readable optical label on its screen. A QR code scanner connects to the door lock mechanism through a processor (e.g., a microcontroller or remote processor accessed over a network), which autonomously sends a command to open the door lock when the proper QR code is decoded. The QR code can be managed and generated by a third party private server maintained by the end client or its agents.
