About Hi-O

Hi-O is set to become the standard technology for access control doors, enabling all doors in the system to become a lot smarter. It is groundbreaking technology that enables all devices around an electronic access control door to communicate with each other – or upper level systems – in a plug-and-play fashion.

Hi-O is a scalable and future-proof system based on CAN, a reliable technology used in the automotive industry for many years.
