Mighton’s Avia USA Smart Deadbolt+ lock has won ‘Smart Lock Product of the Year’ at the annual Internet of Things (IoT) Breakthrough Awards Program.

It is the second time Mighton has claimed the award, following its first win in 2020 for the Avia Secure UK smart lock – and means that the company has now won in four consecutive years at the IoT Awards.

The other two wins were for the Avia Secure sash window fastener and Avia Secure casement fastener which claimed top prize for ‘Home Security Product of the Year’ in 2021 and 2022 respectively.

Combining market leading mechanical and smart technology to deliver ultimate peace of mind for consumers, the Avia USA Smart Deadbolt+ lock works with Bluetooth 5 for strong connection stability and maximum Bluetooth range. This means it can be operated ‘locally’, via Bluetooth, or remotely with compatible Apple devices.

A manual key means the lock can still be operated if there is a power outage, and it also provides a complete audit trail of lock activity status alerts.

Fully compatible with Apple’s Homekit, users can share access to the smart lock with family and friends via an app and it can be controlled from all Apple devices including iPhone, iPad, Apple smartwatch and Apple Homekeys.

James Johnson, Managing Director at IoT Breakthrough, commented: “The number of smart locks continues to grow, and smart homeowners are looking for flexible functionality.

“A lock that can be controlled easily from Apple devices, in particular, is a unique feature that sets Avia apart from the rest of the marketplace, which is why we want to recognise Mighton Products, once again, with our ‘Smart Lock Product of the Year’ award.”

Mike Derham, Founder and Chairman of Mighton Products, said: “We are deeply honoured to be singled out once again by IoT Breakthrough. Avia is all about security and total peace of mind for our customers.

“Avia has been sent to the world’s best security testing houses for both physical and cyber security scrutiny. We believe that every smart lock should be subject to this testing.

“We simply want to give our customers the best smart lock ever,” he concluded. “As such, our design team has analysed every detail and put our lock through the most rigorous of test environments, to give you a product that is genuinely exceptional.”

The Avia USA Smart Deadbolt+ lockis part of Mighton’s Avia Secure family of retrofittable smart home security products that include the Avia sash window fastener, Avia casement window handle and Avia door & window sensors. Avia Secure also features a smart socket and a high-tech motion PIR sensor.

All products in the Avia Smart Secure range are compatible with Apple Home Automation, as well as multiple carrying BSI accreditation and/or Secured by Design (SBD) approval.

Offering quick, hassle-free installation, Avia Secure products have been designed to be easily paired to Apple devices thanks to Bluetooth LE technology, allowing homeowners to check, remotely, whether their property is secure and if windows and doors are open or closed.

They can be purchased individually or as a complete package and do not require a subscription, a feature that sets the range apart from some competitor smart home security systems.
