Avia, Mighton’s newest smart lock handle system that uses Roto North America’s hardware, will be introduced next week for the first time at the annual Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. Avia is the first Apple HomeKit smart home security system to work with multipoint locking door systems.
 
The majority of external doors fitted to U.S. homes that are protected only by deadbolt locking systems are easily broken into, according to Roto, multipoint locking systems are increasingly becoming more popular in the U.S.
 
“Roto is pleased about this exciting opportunity to introduce the Avia smart lock to North America,” Roto North America President and CEO Chris Dimou, states. “The Avia offers advanced technology coupled with high functionality and will be a great addition for our customers.”
 
Recent statistics show that there are 1.3 billion active Apple devices worldwide, according to Roto. For everyone with an Apple iPhone or iPad, Mighton Avia will provide a stylish and highly effective Apple HomeKit-enabled smart lock solution for their home, a company release states.
 
“Avia has been thoroughly developed and extensively tested to ensure that we have a highly functional, secure and effective product that is simple to install and which works seamlessly using Apple HomeKit technology,” Mighton Chairman Mike Derham, says.
 
The new smart lock is controllable from an iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, keypad and fob. After extensive development work with Apple, users can have the confidence that Avia will work seamlessly with these devices, Roto reports.
 
The Avia will be displayed at CES in Halls A-D, booth 40566.
