Say goodbye to simple padlocks and keys that are prone to vandalism and break-ins! The new era is here. Welcome smart door locks for homes and offices!
Smart door locks are robust and responsive electronic security solutions that help you augment the safety of your residential and business facilities, and enhance the security of your priceless properties. Some of these smart security solutions leverage the Internet, video surveillance, and other cutting-edge technologies that allow remote access and monitoring.
Although there are many choices when you’re thinking of installing smart door locks for your home or office, we will explain some major types you should look out for.
Magnetic Locks with Card Access
These smart door locks use magnets to lock and secure the doors of your homes and offices. You can only gain access by using plastic cards that look like traditional credit cards. These plastic cards have metallic strips that automatically unlock the magnets when you swipe them through the card reader. They may also be designed to use radio-frequency identification (RFID) technology. You can find these systems in business facilities that prioritize security and want unhindered control over who visits their premises.
Digital-Mechanical and Electronic Keypad Locks
You may also discover that some homes and business offices use keypads and electronic locks for access entry. While there are many variants of this type of smart door lock, there are just 2 broad types, which are the digital-mechanical and electronic keypad locks.
The major difference between both types of keypad door locks is that: while electronic locks use a battery for power, mechanical locks don’t need any power source to work. With these smart locks, you won’t have to worry about changing door locks and replacing lost keys.
Remote Control Door Locks
You can also control access to your home or office remotely through various mechanisms, such as Wi-Fi, the Internet, or Bluetooth. Some of these home and business security systems can also interface with your smartphone, computer, or other smart home technology. This kind of remote smart door lock enhances privacy, comfort, and convenience.
Key Fobs/Card Readers
Key fobs/card readers are another type of smart door locks you can use to secure your homes and office complexes. These access control systems essentially work by reading codes on key fobs and keycards (when you wave the cards and key fobs across the reader within a reasonable distance) to grant access and unlock doors and gates.
Camera and Video Doorbells
Some smart locks also have doorbells equipped with a still camera or video capabilities. These smart locks have cameras installed in your door’s peepholes that allow you to see who’s at your door before you open it. You can view the live feed or image of who’s outside via your smartphone, tablet, or other electronic devices. Some even allow you to communicate with your visitor while they’re outside.
This list is not exhaustive. There are also smart locks for home and office doors with biometric functionalities, such as fingerprint, facial and retina recognition.
