RemoteLock, a provider of universal access control, announced the expansion of its European operations with the acquisition of SmartLock Europe. The acquisition affirms RemoteLock’s position as a global access control provider and strengthens the company’s operations in the region.

Since 2015, SmartLock Europe has been providing remote access control solutions for commercial and vacation rental applications throughout the U.K., Europe, and surrounding regions. SmartLock Europe has been able to meet these markets’ smart lock and hardware needs by reselling RemoteLock's universal access control software, which can control various types of hardware from different manufacturers. Stuart Duncan, founder of SmartLock Europe, will assume the role of vice president of European operations as part of RemoteLock’s leadership team.

“I am excited to join RemoteLock and continue to bring the power of the platform to the European market on a larger scale,” Duncan said. “With the expansion of RemoteLock Europe, we are addressing the many access control challenges that are unique to this region and building upon the strong foothold RemoteLock already has in these countries.”

RemoteLock’s universal access control platform allows users worldwide to remotely control access for renters, guests, employees, and contractors, saving time and money. RemoteLock provides the ability to control any door using various credential types with locks from all leading manufacturers — all from one dashboard. Today, RemoteLock serves customers in over 65 countries.

“The acquisition of SmartLock Europe positions us for faster growth in the European market,” said RemoteLock CEO Nolan Mondrow. “By integrating European operations into RemoteLock, we now have strong positions in North America, Japan, and Europe.”

RemoteLock’s Chief Financial Officer Hull McKinnon said that geographic expansion is a key part of the company’s long-term strategy.

“I joined the company in March 2021 to help it capitalize on the near-limitless opportunities for expansion stemming from its versatile access control technology platform,” McKinnon said. “This acquisition aligns perfectly with our plans to continue our expansion efforts and increase growth.”
