Openapp builds customised smart locks under three categories - fingerprint-enabled, locks with built-in Bluetooth, and GSM-enabled locks.

Basic Information

Founded by Gotama Gowda, Rajshekar Jenne, and Siddhesh Keluskar, Openapp started by providing smart locks for the telecom industry in 2016. But the startup started scaling up only in 2019. Each lock can be operated on the cloud and opened from anywhere in the world. Openapp’s locks are available in the form factor of both padlocks and door locks. The startup has two revenue models- selling devices and a monthly/annual software subscription, and ACaaS (Access Control as a Service). Its technology is based on the core fundamentals of IoT, micro-services-based server architecture running on Amazon Web Services (AWS) with Kubernetes to achieve scalability. Openapp’s products have built-in wireless peripherals like Bluetooth LE (4.2), embedded M2M for real-time communication without mobile app dependency, and dedicated GPS for accurate satellite tracking. The locks also have built-in sensors for tamper detection to provide real-time alerts. All this is integrated with battery-optimised electronics to provide best performance-battery life ratio.
