Lokket in: Apartment Wi-Fi via TPG FTTB


‘Consumer engagement tech company’ Lokket has launched ‘residential apartment Wi-Fi’ for building with TPG’s FTTB, which includes new smart building technology and automation.

Lokket. It’s a company I’m only just hearing about, which says it ‘specialises in consumer engagement technology solutions where it matters most.’

The company says it has launched ‘residential apartment Wi-Fi services for buildings connected to the Fibre-to-the-Building (FTTB) network constructed by the TPG Telecom group.’

The service was launched this month at Georgina Apartments located in King Street, Newtown, near the University of Sydney.

George Kaloudis, Lokket Founder & CEO said: “We currently provide Wi-Fi access to users in large shopping centre environments to create opportunities for mobile phone-based consumer engagement and to improve the shopping experience.

“Moving into residential apartment services made perfect sense to us. Giving users access to high-speed Wi-Fi services at home and out an about where they want it.”

In multi-dwelling residential buildings that have the FTTB network installed, Lokket is providing brownfields apartments owners and managers with a host of services including high-speed Wi-Fi, Digital Concierge, Digital Signage, Digital Notice Boards and even Video-on-Demand.

Heath Cooper, Chairman of Georgina Apartments in Newtown said: “When TPG installed its FTTB network into Georgina Apartments, they introduced us to Lokket to talk about its Wi-Fi based solutions.

“We are glad we did. With minimal investment by us, our residents now have access to high-speed Wi-Fi anywhere inside and surrounding our building - by the pool, in their apartments, in common areas and even their favourite café next door are covered.”

Lokket says ‘the multi-purpose technology leverages TPG’s high-performance FTTB infrastructure and allows apartment owners and managers to also take advantage of new smart building technology and automation.’

This includes ‘Wi-Fi enabled security sensors, heat and humidity sensors, utility and smart energy use for improved services and management.’

Kaloudis continued: “It is an entire community approach where local business also get involved participating in the Lokket Wi-Fi Marketplace where goods and services can be bought and sold, shared, recycled and swapped directly from the building’s Digital Concierge. We've taken a great deal of care to make the user experience easy and useful.”

Lokket says that ‘users subscribed to the FTTB home services receive the service completely free of charge and can access any of Lokket’s Wi-Fi locations throughout Australia.’

Lokket aims to reach ‘over 2 million daily users in high-dwelling locations by 2017, including users in FTTB connected buildings.’
