akii chooses BlueID as their access control solution

Berlin/Munich, December 09, 2020 – akii is a startup from Z Lab specialized in the digitization of the construction industry. It replaces multiple physical keys by a single app, which serves as an intelligent key ring for all locking scenarios on a construction site. To manage the access control, akii has chosen BlueID’s cloud-based solution, BlueID ACCESS®.


akii offers construction and container rental companies four primary benefits: time-saving through digital key assignment; simplicity through a smooth app user experience; security through digital, real time access management; and robustness through tested locks for the demanding use on construction sites.

With akii’s app for smartphones and tablets, all locking scenarios on a construction site – from container systems up to building doors – can be conveniently managed from a distance without the need for personal interaction. This feature does not only save time and costs associated with the handling of physical keys, but it is also especially important in times of COVID-19.

On the hardware side, the locks offered by akii are extremely robust and can withstand the severe dynamics of a construction site, including accidental impacts by heavy equipment and extreme weather conditions. They also cover all applications within construction sites, from locking building doors and containers to storage boxes for tools and valuable building materials.

For akii, choosing BlueID ACCESS® as the access management partner was an obvious decision. „BlueID provides us the convenience we need to digitize access control in the construction industry. With the APIs and SDKs, we have easily integrated their cloud-based solution into our app; with their integrated-hardware portfolio, we were able to choose the most suitable locks to manage all aspects of access control in construction sites; and with their approved security, we can be sure that our users are in best hands“ Sandra May, Head of Product Development of akii.

BlueID CEO Philipp Spangenberg added, „akii has successfully taken intelligent access control to the construction industry, which was much in need of such a solution. With the intelligent key rings offered by akii, all demands for locking system within a building project, from container systems up to building doors, can be conveniently managed – and backed up by BlueID’s state of art cloud-based access control solution. Together, we bring much needed simplicity to a highly complex environment. “
