Avia The First Ever Smart Lock To Gain Sold Secure Approval
Avia, by Mighton, has become the first ever smart lock to have its mechanical security approved by Sold Secure. Avia, which was the first smart lock to achieve the Government’s Code of Practice for consumer Internet of Things (IoT) security, has been raising the bar for smart lock integrity since it was unveiled at CES 2019 in Las Vegas.
Designed to work with Apple’s HomeKit security ecosystem, Avia also utilises a TS 007 3-star / SS312 Diamond cylinder that helps to ensure peace of mind for homeowners.
Sold Secure, a scheme that is dedicated to reducing the risk of crime through the rigorous assessment of security products, subjected the Avia secure smart lock to a series of gruelling tests, at its purpose-built laboratories in Rugby. These included efforts to compromise the lock via manual attack testing including amongst others drilling through the test door in order to short circuit Avia’s electronics, an attempt to access the wires that power the lock’s electronic thumbturn and a more traditional cylinder ‘snap’ test.
Mighton chairman, Mike Derham, commented: “When we set about developing Avia, one of our primary objectives was that it had to offer the very best levels of security for both its electronic and its mechanical elements. Consumers will only trust smart products to protect their homes if they can be assured that their homes are as secure as possible to counter both hacking and physical attacks. Thanks to BSI accreditation earlier this year, Avia is leading the way on IoT security and now, with the latest approval by Sold Secure, we have shown that it is also incredibly resistant to traditional methods of attack.”
