The Story ... so far
Chain of locks Image
Last Lock was founded in 2019 by UW-Madison graduate and Minnesota native Jack Ryan. The idea came to Jack as he was walking home and saw a tangled string of locks on a gate. This daisy chain system allows a select number of people access without having to copy and share keys. Additionally, it's easy to add another user to the system by simply adding another lock to the chain.

Jack began to wonder how the simplicity of this access management system could be translated to an IoT device, and thus the driving concept behind Last Lock was born.
