"Malmö's politicians decided in 2015 to invest in digital door locks for the elderly and the sick, who have home help, so that staff would be able to open the doors to users via the mobile phone."
"But the software was based on Microsoft's operating system for mobile phones, as no handset manufacturers want to make use of and that goes in the grave in the year. It allows 800 digital lock collects dust, and the 400 mounted can not be used as it is thought, reports the new york times."
"Perhaps they will never be able to be used, and the cost to taxpayers so far is about a million dollars."
"But the idea if the digital lock has not been scrapped. A new procurement has been launched."
"– Is the timing right so we have a new contract until the summer or beginning of autumn. Then we can begin to implement in full scale. It takes 12-18 months to get out of about 7 000 lock, " says Åke Härstedt, head of the unit, to the newspaper."
