ECKey partnered with G4S Israel (Hashmira Security Technologies) to exclusively distribute the ECKey product range into Israel.
As part of the agreement, Israel-based G4S will support the growing number of inquiries and existing customers of ECKey in the region. This partnership will position G4S and ECKey as the leading players in Israel using Bluetooth in the access control security market and signals a fundamental change in the opportunities for the provision of secure hands free access using the cell phone.
“This is a key agreement and partnership for ECKey as is demonstrates that the opportunity inherent in the access control and security services industry is now wide open for leading distributors of electronic security equipment to explore new applications that to date had limited solutions for their consumers,” said Nick Willis CEO of ECKey,”.
“Everything we carry in our pockets and handbag — whether it is our diary, wallet, address book, music, camera, emails — is all ending up on our phones,” Willis said. “Now with this technology, keys, swipe cards, and remote controls can be replaced with the Bluetooth phone most people already have.”
“The ECKey will allow our customers to offer exciting new, value added services at attractive price points as well as simplifying installation and operation,” Willis said. “We are bringing new levels of convenient and secure access to the home or workplace.”
“We are delighted to be working with ECKey, an established leader in Bluetooth solutions for the access control industry, to realize the potential of this growing market,” said Yaron Hurvitz, Marketing and Sales VP at G4S Israel.
