System Overview

1.Cloud Algorithms
Algorithms in the cloud essentially allow for billions of pre-programmed codes for any future date and time combination.
2.Local Server/web based software
Management can use web-based software to download the selected code for the selected date and time. Can be hosted locally.
3.Mobile operator
End user can interact with the web-based software through the Digital Keys app
4. Digital Keys app
The Digital Keys app has a simple user friendly booking/calendar interface to download the code directly inside the app.
5. NFC on smartphone
Using NFC on smartphones, the unique code is sent to the hardware.
6. Hardware (striker or lock)
The hardware has a memory, real-time clock, and same algorithms in cloud so that it when the code is presented via NFC at the lock, it looks up the time and checks if the corresponding code is correct, and then if it is it unlocks.
