The idea of holding Youth Olympic Games came from IOC President Jacques Rogge. In 2007, the members of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) decided to introduce a version of the Olympic Games specifically for young people. The summer and winter games are to be held on an alternating basis every two years. And thus it was that, in August 2010, the first summer games took place.

Nanyang Technological University obviously wanted to guarantee the best possible security for its international guests. It made use of the very latest technology, thereby ensuring that the stringent security standards applying to athletes and officials during the games were met. Kaba is not a new partner to this Singapore university. It has fitted several of its buildings with digital cylinders in the past. After being selected as the site for the Olympic village, the university decided this was an ideal opportunity to further optimize security on campus in general. Kaba won out here with its all-round expertise in access management and the benefits it was able to provide in terms of security, organization and convenience. Overall, 4,000 student rooms as well as communal areas were equipped with new security technology.
