ASI and RemoteLock Partnership Offers Enhanced Environmental Control Option for Independence
Accessibility Services, Inc. (ASI) announced today their partnership with RemoteLock, the leader in universal access control. RemoteLock’s platform now integrates with the autonoME environmental control unit/speech generating device to allow individuals with severe spinal cord injuries and debilitating diseases such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and multiple sclerosis (MS) the freedom and independence to control their door locks and access to their homes.
The RemoteLock integration gives autonoME users peace of mind and security at home, allowing users to control door locks using their input method of choice:
- Switch Scan
- Eye Gaze
- Head Mouse
- Sip & Puff
Users can assign specific access codes to visitors, friends, caregivers, and family members. In addition to autonoME integration, RemoteLock works with the RemoteLock Mobile App, Amazon Alexa, and Google Home.
“Combining ASI’s expertise in accessibility with RemoteLock gave us the ability to extend door lock access and control to our end users,” explains Michael Lawrence, Principal Engineer for ASI. “RemoteLock provides the door lock and unlocking interface while we provide the accessibility layer to make the impossible possible for our end users.”
ASI’s autonoME is the first and only integrated environmental control unit (ECU) and speech generating device with full augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) and computing capabilities. It allows users to have full control of their environment and gives them the ability to generate speech.
Barclay Friesen, RemoteLock’s Executive Vice President of Business Development says that their platform is intentionally easy to use and integrate with in order to make modern access control options available to more people.
“We are honored to have been chosen as the integration partner to make ASI’s end-user’s lives easier when it comes to managing who can access their homes and when,” said Friesen.
According to Brice Green, ASI’s Vice President of Business Development, the company explored options for a door lock system to integrate with the autonoME software upon the request of existing clients.
“We continuously evolve our technology based on the needs of the unique community we serve,” explains Green. “Our founder, Fred Thompson, started ASI with the philosophy to ‘start with the customer and work backwards.’ More than 30 years later, we still operate our business and make decisions based on this philosophy.”
