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.

2015

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).

2019

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.

2020

The 1Control DORY smart lock

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

2022

100,000+ 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.
