Press Release

KKE Establishes RemoteLock Japan Co., Ltd.

Kozo Keikaku Engineering, Inc. (Head Office: Nakano-ku, Tokyo, JAPAN, Chairman: Shota Hattori, “KKE” hereafter), a Japanese design and engineering firm, announced today the establishment of an affiliated company, “RemoteLock Japan Co., Ltd.”, aiming for further business expansion in Japan and Asia.

As the digital transformation of facility management is accelerated with the rapidly-growing IoT technologies aside with the need for measures against COVID-19, access control solutions are expanding domestically and globally as a solution that supports safe and secure social infrastructure.

"RemoteLock" is a cloud-based access control platform that manages smart locks as well as wired access devices, providing cost-effective access management solutions for any door on a property—whether internal property doors or common doors such as main entrances, elevators, and garages. Its rich API makes it easy for developers to bring RemoteLock’s powerful access capabilities to their own applications or solutions like booking platforms and property management and shared-spaces software. It’s a seamless way to manage locks and users from the essential business software that’s used everyday.

KKE has been an investor of the software company, RemoteLock, Inc. (Head Office: Denver, Colorado, USA, CEO: Nolan Mondrow), and became a master distributor in Japan in January 2017. KKE provides RemoteLock solutions to control the access of various doors and entrances of public facilities such as gymnasiums and community centers, as well as hotels, inns, vacation rentals, shared spaces, and offices in Japan.

RemoteLock Japan will be part of RemoteLock's growing global ecosystem. In 2021, RemoteLock acquired SmartLock Europe, which now operates in the UK and Europe. KKE is excited to launch RemoteLock Japan which will be solely dedicated to RemoteLock business in Japan and Asia—further accelerating RemoteLock’s universal access control business worldwide.
