Our new ‘home to hub’ video demonstrates the latest development of our FalcoSmart App - a complete app-based system enabling Councils to provide a secure, keyless, end-to-end journey for their residents - from their home to their local hub using a single app.

The ‘home to hub’ video explains how the FalcoSmart system enables a user/resident to access their local bike hangar, cycle to and access their local bike hub, as well as locking their bike, using only app-enabled smart locks.

Works with all Cycle Parking Facilities

The access control/locking system is suitable for all cycle parking facilities including; bike hangars, cycle lockers, bike stores and hubs. The smart locks can also be retrofitted into existing cycle parking infrastructure including; all UK bike hangar designs, cycle hubs where tradition maglock systems are used and other cycle parking facilities, so that all existing residential cycle parking networks operated by Councils can be converted to an app-based smart system. Additionally, the app can also be operated in tandem with existing mechanical systems.

Features and Benefits

The FalcoSmart App now provides secure locking for all cycle parking facilities and the features and benefits include;

  • Everything on a single app – no need for multiple keys, fobs and swipe cards.
