OUR COMPANY

OPEN was founded in 2017 by Jacquis Tolsma to offer property owners easy-to-use smart access control to their properties by maximising technology.  Our founding principle remains: helping people to forget their keys.

OPEN’s range of innovative products are designed with the end-user in mind: striving to enable seamless access management to properties, whilst saving you one of the most important things that money can’t buy – your time.

Using Internet of Things (IoT) Technology, OPEN works with any device to make access easy and convenient. And what is more, now you can afford to forget your keys and remotes!
