Nuki, the market-leading name in smart locks has been named ‘IoT Emerging Company of the Year’ at the IoT Breakthrough Awards. Within the process the jury highlighted that they were particularly impressed by the ease of use that the Nuki Smart Lock 2.0 and the Nuki Opener offered consumers.

“We are very proud and pleased that our achievements have been recognised, but we have only just started,” commented Martin Pansy, CEO of Nuki.

“With an innovative product portfolio and remarkable market growth, Nuki has established itself as one of Europe’s market leaders in the field of smart locks – which is definitely a breakthrough for the company,” explains James Johnson, Managing Director of IoT Breakthrough Awards. “We are very pleased to honour this company as part of our annual IoT Breakthrough Award Program.”

It was a particularly exciting year for Nuki Home Solutions in 2019. With the launch of the Nuki Opener the company has come one step closer to its self-imposed goal of making the traditional key obsolete. The Opener gives people living in apartment buildings the option to automatically open their front door.

The Nuki Smart Lock 2.0 has been specifically designed to cater for the common UK oval-cylinder lock, whilst retaining Nuki’s easily installed retrofitting. The Smart Lock 2.0 seamlessly fits over your existing lock and key in less than three minutes with no need for replacing door fixtures. Nuki products integrate with existing Smart Home solutions such as Ring and Nest, as well as popular voice assistants Siri, Alexa and Google Assistant. The full suite of products is available on the Nuki website –

At IFA 2019 Nuki published a forecast to break 100,000 smart locks sold by the end of the year. This goal has been achieved and exceeded.
