Who we are as a company:

Havr is a French tech company that is domestic leader in the fast-growing sector of smart access.

Key- or card-based access management systems are a major headache to manage on a human, technical and financial level. Which explains why the smart access marketplace is set to grow to beyond $50b by 2025.

Havr's flagship Brightlock product is a flexible, secure and powerful solution for smart access applications in a B2B environment. It's the only smartlock out there to combine enterprise-strength scalability with a simple, intuitive, consumer-grade user experience. Our competitors range from flexible but vulnerable technologies like Bluetooth to highly secure but restrictive and expensive biometric systems. Brightlock sidesteps this trade-off with its own unique, proprietary Li-Fi technology. With Li-Fi, Brightlock generates and shares in real time unique light signals that any user's smartphone flash can use to unlock doors quickly, easily and in complete security.

Created in 2017, Havr now has 20+ team members in offices in Paris and Compiègne (northern France). Brightlock is already in use or being evaluated by more than 20 blue-chip organisations and to date we have sold more than 4 000 units.

Looking further ahead, Havr has a vision of its smart access solutions as the cornerstone of a new era of frictionless living. We dream of a tomorrow where access to shared spaces and facilities, movement of goods and the new smart service economy will all be more flexible, more connected and more secure thanks to the technology, partnerships and new business models we are working to build today.
