THE SMART SYSTEM for your business


    Natural. Digital.

    As a competence platform as well as an innovation driver, Lock stands for positioning premium quality solutions.


    In the field of horticulture, 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 digitalization of your business. This results in resource-saving farming, significantly reduced effort and, above all, far-reaching economic prospects.


    Traditional. Future-oriented.

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

    Whether it's expanding your business, monitoring extreme weather conditions, or most importantly, the well-being of the plant.


    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.



    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.

    High-quality sensors measure precisely the current ambient conditions – for example, rain, wind, temperature, light, humidility, heating, etc..


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


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


    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 of 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 greenhouse 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.

    Data & Reporting

    • With preset setpoints
    • Historical course of values


    • Remote or local commissioning
    • 24/7 support
    • Optimization


    Clear. Structured.

    Four steps towards the complete solution.

    We support and advise you on getting your smart SBE system ready for use.


    1. Operational check

    First, we – your Lock experts – carry out a comprehensive operational check and assess the actual state of your horticultural farm.


    2. Project planning

    Based on the determined data, we create a project and cost plan.


    3. Commissioning

    We support you in commissioning and setting up your SBE system. This can be carried out on site or via remote access.


    4. Optimization

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



    Modular. Tailor-made.

    Always optimal climatic conditions. This benefits you, your plants 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 climate in the warm/cold season. On one hand, drafts must be avoided - on the other, 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.


    alles. umfassend.

    Lock has always stood for premium services.


    Our smart SBE system stands for optimized operating sequences, a noticeable efficiency increase as well as a considerably reduced work effort – and above all for improving animal welfare.

    In close cooperation with you, we provide technical support on the way to a resource-saving, future-oriented agriculture!






    Your success is our motivation.

    What does the abbreviation "SBE" mean?


    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.

    Why do I need the Lock SBE control?

    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.

    What requirements do I have to fulfil for the Lock SBE control?

    • 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.

    Can several buildings be networked in a Lock SBE control system?

    Yes, there are various possibilities for this. Information and sensor data from several buildings in a company can easily communicate with each other.

    Which terminals can be used to operate the Lock SBE control unit?

    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.

    Can I optimize my energy consumption with the SBE control?

    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.

    As a customer, can I make changes to the setting parameters myself?

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

    Does the Lock SBE control system receive regular updates?

    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.

    Does a Lock employee need to be on site for a service or adjustment?

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

    Are there monthly running costs for the SBE control system?

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

    Is there the possibility of financing?

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

    Do I need an appointment for commissioning?

    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.

    How to connect to the system when internet is not available?

    Prerequisite for the operation of the SBE farm management system is a wired Internet / local WLAN network, similar to a home network. If no connection to the Internet can be established, the system can be accessed via this local WLAN or via a computer in the same network.

    What is remote access?

    If there is a problem with a plant, we can remotely access the plant and eliminate the cause.

    How does the SBE control behave after a power failure?

    After a power failure, the control starts from where it was before the power failure. In individual cases, a reference run is necessary.
