Home Electronic Door Locks
With electronic door locks you can use your own personal code to enter your home with just a few simple pushes of a button and lock it with just one. You also get more control over who has access to your home. Just assign a temporary code to whoever needs one and delete it when you see fit. Also, this technology works by allowing your front door lock to wirelessly talk to other things in your house, such as the security system, lighting, thermostat, and entertainment system.
Most electronic door locks come with one or more means of entry, which include RFID, keypad, biometric (fingerprint), or Bluetooth. Early electronic locks used keypads with a pin number for entry. Keypads are still popular, although newer models use touchscreen panels instead of buttons and include security features to help prevent burglars from figuring out the code.
Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) locks use a key fob or card for entry. With RFID technology, you may not have to remove the key fob from your pocket or purse.
Bluetooth-enabled locks operate in a similar way, sensing your smartphone’s Bluetooth ID and opening when you approach. Most Bluetooth and RFID locks also use a secondary means of electronic entry, in case your battery dies or you lose your key fob or cell phone.
Biometric entry uses fingerprint identification to open the lock. All you do is program your fingerprint, or those you want to have access to your home, and the system knows this is an acceptable person to unlock for.
Some electronic locks can open remotely via an app and can integrate with your home automation system for added security and protection, placing them in the category of “smart” technology.
For example, if your alarm system detects a flood in your basement while you’re on vacation and sends you an alert, you can call your neighbor to go check on the problem. While you’re sitting on the beach, you can unlock the door for the neighbor and lock it again after they’ve remedied the situation and left. By the time you get home, you hardly realize there was a problem.
The smart locks are not just home keyless entry systems; it is capable of much more. The devices interact with smartphones using networks via landlines, cellulars or through cellulars, and Bluetooth.
Advantages of Keyless Entry For Homes
More Security: Smart systems can be integrated with the larger home security network thereby allowing greater safety, remotely being controlled and monitored, along with the possibility of home automation.
Virtual keys: since most of these smart systems do not require a standardized key unit, many keys could be issued to different people as per the requirement and then those sets or the initially set code could be quickly revoked. And, the system could also allow the owner to know who used the code and allowed monitoring in case of any unwanted element enters.
They also lock the door: the smart system has been seen to be doing the one thing it was designed to do quite efficiently. Moreover, such systems also require reinforcing of doors, which would mean, use of more secure and harder material for the door, bolting, wiring and others.
If you are a tech-savvy homeowner and are looking for an additional layer of security for your home or office, a keyless entry is sure to engage your interest. While these locks do look like a prop from a sci-fi movie, they are loaded with features, to make your life easier and secure.
