A ground-breaking solution for locking waste containers

Strømbergs AS has revolutionized the way we dispose of waste. Together we have developed a patented solution that enables individual locking of waste containers using an NFC chip in the phone, a dedicated app or an RFID chip.

From Concept to market

Datek Next has been a key player since the start of the project. From being responsible for the technical development of the product through several stages, to being involved from the concept phase to proof of concept, to a version ready for the market. The development of esyloq has been an exciting challenge for us. We have integrated several technologies in limited space. The product must also withstand the demanding environment around waste containers, as well as the challenging Norwegian climate with a focus on battery capacity for long life. We have been responsible for the development of mechanics, hardware, software and the backend solution for esyloq.

The solution has a cloud-based platform where all the locks communicate. Communication is via the 4G network based on Nordic Semiconductor's nRF9160 platform. This cloud solution, developed by us, is built as a scalable platform that gives several partners access to manage the locks via a secure API.
