Our history

The idea of the SOLO gate opener was born

In autumn 2015 Francesco Sarasini invents the SOLO bluetooth gate opener, the only one in the world to use this technology, without any cables to connect and compatible with 80% of remote controls on the market.


Silca chooses SOLO as an OEM product

Silca, a market leader in key duplication with a turnover of €1 billion and 300,000 points of sale worldwide, selects 1Control SOLO as its own brand OEM product.


The 2nd generation 1Control SOLO

In June 2019 we present the 2nd Generation of our products, with the introduction of a renewed and more complete access management and the increase of compatible remote controls (over 700).


Voice commands and remote opening

In December 2020 we launch a new product on the market: LINK, the Smarthome Wi-fi Hub that enables remote opening, without distance limits, and voice commands Alexa, Google Home and Siri.


SOLO is chosen as a Maserati accessory

Maserati wants to offer its customers our home access experience, supplying 1Control SOLO in OEM under its own brand as an accessory for the cars in the range.


Smart control of PILOMAT road bollards

Pilomat selects our access control technology to integrate it into all their traffic bollards. The first A2A Milano installation takes place in February 2022.


The 1Control DORY smart lock

After a pre-order at the end of 2021 which ended with a sold out in a few days, in May 2022 we launched the new DORY lock on the market, which allows you to open both with your smartphone and with the traditional key.


1Control technology in the new Telepass

Im Jahr 2022 haben wir mit Telepass eine Vereinbarung zur Lizenzierung unseres geistigen Eigentums abgeschlossen. Dazu gehört die Integration unserer Tor- und Garagentoröffnertechnologie in das neue Flaggschiffprodukt des Unternehmens, in dem über 15 MIL-Geräte installiert sind.


Apple CarPlay / Android Auto

One of our goals for a long time was to be able to open the app directly from the car screen.
In 2023 we finally managed to integrate our app with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto!


The 1Control LOCO bluetooth padlock

In November 2023 we launched a new product, a smart padlock that can be controlled by phone and smartwatch. No keys or PINs are needed and from the app it is possible to create remote shares or check the history of openings.


200,000+ 1Control users

We were born in Italy, but opening up to the foreign market was one of the first steps we took.

1Control works on any existing opening system (such as gates, garages and doors) and is compatible throughout Europe.

This has led us to a rapid spread, as well as in Italy, mainly in France and Germany.

Maximum security and Made in Italy technology

We create IoT devices that make every existing opening system smart. Even in the absence of an Internet connection, we guarantee an innovative user experience and top-level security performance.

Our products are entirely designed and manufactured in Italy. Furthermore, SOLO and DORY are patented, as their technology is unique in the world.
