Are you one of the many people who leave a key ‘hidden’ somewhere at home? Think how often that key is the most obvious place like under a flower pot at the front door, giving would-be criminals an open invitation to access the property. Perhaps you run a commercial accommodation establishment where there’s an ongoing need for guests to access the property? Ever had to take time off work in order to be at home to open up for visitors or to let a tradesperson in? Would you like to be able to deactivate your home alarm system and unlock the door remotely when your child comes home from school? Do you forget to activate your home alarm system?
Perhaps it’s time to think about doing something different with your home security.
Digital communication unlocks the potential for countless things in our daily lives, but did you know that you can use it to unlock your front door?
Technology has transformed the world and smart locking is transforming our approach to home security.
Smart locking enables conventional locks and keys to be replaced by virtual locks which can be controlled remotely by digital devices. This remote accessibility gives you greater control over your property’s security, regardless of where you are in the world.
Another technological development which is transforming the home security landscape is biometrics (a term derived from the Greek word ‘bio’ meaning life and ‘metric’ meaning to measure). Nowadays, there’s no need to carry a bulky bunch of keys or risk compromising your security because you’ve lost your keys – you can simply swipe your finger over a biometric reader at your front door to unlock it.
Biometric technology has been around for many years but it’s only in recent times that it’s become available for mainstream consumer use for home security and safety. A common term for biometric technology is ‘keyless entry’ because doors unlock when the scanner recognises an ‘approved’ physical attribute like a fingerprint or a palm and unlocks the door.
Smart locking and biometrics are a reality and more and more people are discovering just how easy it is to install and manage a smart-locking system. And when you consider that your home alarm system can also be fully integrated with your wireless home locking mechanisms, you’ll realise that control of your home security is literally in the palm of your hand.
A smart locking system and integrated home burglar alarm system is surprisingly easy to install and to operate. If you can manage a cellphone, you can manage a smart locking system.
Some of the advantages include:
- Easy to use
- Keeps you connected to your home from anywhere
- Gives you greater control over your home security
- Access locks can be integrated with your home alarm system, home security cameras, garage doors, intercom systems etc
- Use your unique fingerprint identification to operate your locks, garage doors, gates and alarm system
Apart from the wasted time and hassle involved in having to return home to arm the system or instructing someone else to do so, an unprotected property is vulnerable to criminals. But if you have smart door locks and an integrated home alarm, you can control your system from anywhere.
