Ensuring a reliable connection between smart doors and end users
Imagine having the ability to unlock your door from your phone, securely. Slovenia’s digital native start up Ringo Lock helps landlords and homeowners do just that by turning house doors into smart, digitized ones.
Ringo Lock accurately identified that the main pain point of landlords, primarily those who rented out their apartments over platforms such as Airbnb, was delivering keys. Sometimes it has to do with the guest arriving late or at odd hours and other times due to an emergency or the landlords getting delayed.
That’s where their smart, modular locks came in to play, helping landlords unlock their house via their phones. However, there was one hitch – the Wi-Fi connection. It caused battery draining and loss of signal leaving landlords in remote locations with unreliable access or low-quality internet, ultimately leading to dissatisfied guests.
In fact, around 50% of customer complaints were related to Wi-Fi access. Directly affecting Ringo Locks business expansion plans.
