The high-end locks market is up 20% year-on-year.
Today, electronic card locks and fingerprint locks have become the most widely used locks in high-end venues. According to statistics, China's high-end locks market is growing at a rate of more than 20% per year, and the future space is gratifying.
According to archaeological findings, locks appeared in China's Yangshao culture more than 3,000 years ago. During the Eastern Han Dynasty, the level of China's three-spring locks reached a high level of craftsmanship and was used for more than 1,000 years.
However, with the development of the industrial level, the British D. Porter invented the cam rotor lock in the early 18th century. In 1848, the Americans invented the use of a cylindrical pin lock, which has become the most commonly used lock in the world. In the 1970s, with the application of microelectronic technology, magnetic locks, voice locks, ultrasonic locks, infrared locks, electromagnetic wave locks, electronic card locks, fingerprint locks, eyeball iris locks, and remote locks appeared.
Scientists have found through research that the fingerprint and the iris of the eye have the highest probability of being unique. After decades of exploration, fingerprint locks have begun to enter the room, widely used in military, government, finance, insurance, villas and other high-end, confidential applications. Such locks are collectively referred to as smart locks, or bio-smart locks; they rely on biometrics and use software programming to combine high-precision algorithms.
At present, high security level fingerprint locks and electronic locks on the market are mainly divided into three origins: Korea, Germany, and China.
South Korea's electronic locks (mainly password locks) represented by Hyundai and Samsung have entered China earlier, and have high market share in high-end real estate, which has a good reputation among users. Continuing the style of Korean manufacturing, Korean electronic locks are more fancy and have a strong sense of design, which is its advantage.
All Korean locks are processed by Korean factories and sold by Chinese agents through the introduction of locks or parts. This will definitely cause problems that are difficult to guarantee after-sales service. Secondly, since China's fire prevention and anti-theft standards are much higher than those in South Korea, whether the locks produced in South Korea can reach the Chinese standard remains to be verified. This is the same as the previous foreign milk powder incident, foreign brands can claim that the international and Chinese standards are different, but the essence is: China's standards are higher than international standards.
