LOCK SBE - NATURAL. DIGITAL.

As a competence platform as well as innovation driver, Lock stands for positioning premium quality solutions. With LOCK SBE, we have created an all-encompassing, digital solution.

In the field of agriculture, this intelligent, smart system from Lock is a major step into the future – for the benefit of humans, animals and plants. LOCK SBE serves to automate work processes to the greatest possible extent and conveniently control and monitor these from any location using a smartphone or tablet.

We support and advise you in every step of the way to the digitalisation of your farm. This results in resource-saving farming, significantly reduced effort and, above all, far-reaching economic prospects.

SMART - TRADITIONAL. FUTURE-ORIENTED.

Classic agriculture meets pioneer in digital transformation. This is the challenge of our time. But, with challenge comes opportunity.

Whether it's expanding your farm, monitoring extreme weather conditions, or most importantly, animal welfare.

Lock’s path-breaking farm management system is based on many years of experience in the positioning solutions sector. It meets the highest quality standards and offers endless possibilities.

BRICK - MODULAR. CUSTOMIZED. FLEXIBLE.

The building blocks or “bricks” in your current environment include ventilation systems, lighting, ventilators, etc. With their connection to the SBE system, they become SmartBricks and can now be controlled conveniently using the LOCK SBE app on your smartphone or tablet.

Even though our intelligent system can act independently and make recommendations based on data gathered by the sensors – you decide and make the appropriate settings. And, if you wish, your complete living environment can also be easily integrated into your intelligent digital system.

SENSORS
High-quality sensors measure precisely the current ambient conditions – for example, temperature, air humidity, ammonia content, fine dust, carbon dioxide and wind.

 

BRICKS
Bricks are your building blocks - for example light, heating, camera, ventilation, etc. They are controlled either manually, fully automatically, or coordinated with each other.

 

BUILDING
The smart SBE system is a cross-industry modular solution that can be extended without problems – for example, office or private areas.

THE SBE APP - SIMPLE. INTELLIGENT.

Optimal interaction. The sensors measure the respective current ambient conditions – and the respective actuators immediately initiate the corresponding positioning or make a recommendation.

You control all these complex processes easily and conveniently with the LOCK SBE app on your smartphone or tablet – wherever you are. In addition, our app provides comprehensive and detailed data reporting. This means you always have your complete barn environment in view and can activate changes.

Built as a modular system, the LOCK SBE app can be expanded indefinitely as new modules are added. This means, your system is ideally equipped for all future developments.

4. OPTIMIZATION

We will remain in contact with you to optimize the SBE system for your business in the best possible way.

SBE IN THE BARN - MODULAR. TAILOR-MADE.

Always optimal climatic conditions. This benefits you, your animals as well as the yield.

Central to this is an effective ventilation system, adjusted to the prevailing ambient conditions, which creates a consistently well-tempered environment and generates the right amount of cooling during warmer months. On the one hand, draughts must be avoided - on the other hand, an optimal air flow rate is imperative to remove moisture to the desired extent and to ensure the lowest possible concentration of pollutants and dust in the barn. Specifically a high ammonia content is known to be a critical factor. It reduces the well-being and endangers the health of humans and animals. Also not to be forgotten is lighting adapted to the environment.

With LOCK SBE you have a real professional at your side with a constant eye on all factors using sensors - and giving you a detailed overview of the current status. In this respect, you benefit greatly from the on-going exchange of our experts with science and research. The knowledge gained in this process is the decisive basis for a feel-good climate in all respects.

FAQ - FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT THE SBE SYSTEM

Fundamental questions

SBE stands for SMART - BRICK - ENVIRONMENT.

  • SMART: SBE is an intelligent system that thinks for itself, acts independently and makes recommendations. Workflows can be automated to the greatest possible extent.
  • BRICK: Bricks are your building blocks such as lighting, heating, camera, ventilation etc. 
  • ENVIRONMENT: The environment of the system: also extendable to office and/or private areas.

The intelligent Lock SBE control system offers you the opportunity to prepare your building today for the requirements of tomorrow. Making work easier, increasing efficiency and managing energy are the top priorities here.

  • The prerequisite is a wired Internet connection on site.
  • A further prerequisite is the professional assembly, installation and commissioning of the control system by a specialist. We will be happy to provide you with an offer.

This is possible in every stable with little effort. Thanks to the modular components, the control system always adapts individually to every need.

By equipping an existing barn with a Lock SBE control system, it is possible to develop it competitively with little effort. Old stables are converted and modernised for more animal welfare. This is where the Lock SBE control system comes into play, which can be integrated into your existing building with little effort. This increases animal welfare, the efficiency of the farm and the simple operation via app facilitates the daily work.

This is possible in every stable with little effort. Thanks to the modular components, the control system always adapts individually to every need.

The Lock SBE app can be easily used with both your smartphone and your tablet (iOS and Android). In addition, the user interface can also be used on your computer.

The user-friendly recording of consumption of electricity, gas and water allows energy consumption to be optimally coordinated. "Energy guzzlers" are quickly identified and the necessary energy is used in exactly the amount that is needed. This energy management reduces costs.

The customer can make the appropriate settings for the parameters. In addition, a dependency between the individual parameters can be mapped.

Heat stress is not only fuelled by the outside temperature, but also by the humidity. If the ambient temperature rises and the relative humidity rises at the same time, heat stress also increases. In other words, it's humid and that stresses the body. This stress can be measured with the help of the temperature-humidity index (THI). If the THI rises above a value of 72, cattle begin to suffer from the heat. This is the case, for example, at 23 °C and about 80 percent humidity. However, this value is also achieved when the outside temperature reaches 28 °C but the humidity is only 20 percent. The higher the THI value, the more the animals suffer.

It is important to keep an eye not only on the temperature in the barn but also on the humidity. Humidity can cause similar stress for the animal as temperature.

At Lock, we are constantly working on expanding the possibilities of the controller and adapting it even better to the requirements of the market. We make these updates available to all users. In this way, the control unit is always automatically kept up to date with the latest technology.

No, remote access means that an adjustment or service can be carried out online. So no one needs to be on site.

No, you get the control system from us and have no ongoing costs - not even for software updates.

You are also welcome to purchase our control system via rental purchase or leasing. Just get in touch with us.

Commissioning is carried out remotely and by telephone. In order to guarantee the availability of our experts, it is therefore necessary to make an appointment with Lock.

No, the Lock SBE control is a separate and independent system.

BRICK

Wind speed, wind direction, rain, brightness, temperature outside/inside, humidity, ammonia and carbon dioxide inside can be measured. Other sizes on request.

In addition to the control of various ventilation systems (ridge ventilation, VariVent winding ventilation, etc.), it is also possible to control and operate fans, valves for the animal shower, lighting and cameras. Other modules are possible on request (slurry technology, bedding robots, etc.).

Our control system is modularly expandable. The integration of access control or time recording for your company is also possible without any problems. 

In principle, it is possible to operate all the lights on your property via the SBE control system using the app. This applies to the lighting in the barn as well as the lighting in the courtyard, i.e. the lighting on the building.

SAFETY

Emergency management means that you automatically receive a notification on your smartphone or a call in the event of an emergency. You can react immediately and avoid major damage. Severe weather is detected at an early stage by the integrated weather forecast and the system automatically reacts preventively.

No. SBE does not comply with the standards DIN 14675, DIN 14676, DIN VDE 0828-1, DIN VDE 0833-1 to 4 and EN 54-ff. It is therefore not a certified system.

CE with associated declaration of conformity; CEN/TC 422 Ventilation curtains EN17088:2021; Low Voltage Directive 2014/35/EU; Winding standard DIN EN 17088

The (optional) remote access via an internet connection using the Remote Connect Service is of the highest standard with TLS 1.3 encryption. The security measures required for an Internet connection are regularly checked by internal and external security specialists.
