The future of the traditional locks and keys

Locks and keys have been used in very similar ways for centuries and have barely changed when they’re used in buildings. The principle of getting into the home or office - the simple act of putting the key into the lock and turning it - is now the same as it was hundreds of years ago.


But, like many other aspects of modern life, technology is changing the traditional way of things, and now we are seeing a series of new products gaining an important foothold in the security market. More and more products are available to grant access to buildings without the use of keys, such as code and biometric locks.



The touch screen;

The market trend of entry systems is evolving to a higher level, and products such as password locks are becoming more and more popular. The door with the code lock can be accessed by entering a simple code. The system is easy to install - new locks can be quickly installed by removing existing locks. Programming is also very simple and you can easily create and change 4 to 12-bit pins. When needed, temporary codes can be created and deleted to allow visitors to enter the building.


 

The biometrics:

There are even some locks on the market that do not require a key or code to open the door. For example, biometric locks use the latest fingerprinting technology to grant access to a building and require the user to place their finger on the reader to unlock the door. The biometric fingerprint code lock can store up to 200 fingerprints, and users can simply add and delete them from the device. No need to worry about losing keys or remembering passwords, it is ideal for use in high-traffic buildings. The lock provides ultimate security because it has blink deadbolt and a unique key that cannot be copied. In addition, fingerprint technology means that the locked system cannot be covered except for the designated key holder.
