One of the easiest and most efficient ways to secure your home and/or business is by using locks. To take security up a notch, smart locks and entry systems are a significant upgrade. These locks and other security systems will help control who gets into your property and how they do so. A smart lock feature can unlock your device automatically in certain situations, and you can set your device to unlock when you want it to. Entry systems can also be an organized way to ensure only particular people enter a space.
There are so many different locks and systems to choose from, so how do you know which ones are the best for you? Whether you want a system that you can control through your phone and Bluetooth, or fingerprints and tags, you have the power to make it your own. With that being said, we came up with 3 locks and entry systems that are worth considering when your place needs an upgrade, so go ahead and check them out!
Card Reader Systems
Card access control is a great enhancement to any business property. You'll commonly see them in hotels, giving you access to your hotel room. Or, you'll see them in corporate buildings, giving you access to certain rooms, offices, etc. The great thing about these cards is that no one else can get into the room except for whoever has the cards.
Having a card reader system grants you a sense of security and exclusivity. You can have a physical card on hand, or even via smartphone. This gives individuals a sense of responsibility and ownership over their particular rooms and residences. Plus, these cards are very limited, meaning only select people have access to these rooms, creating a sense of both privacy and security.
If you're the manager in this situation, you get access in its entirety. With features and functions such as electronic locks or access control panels, the manager has everything they need at their fingertips to ensure the property is secure.
Lockly Vision Doorbell Camera Smart Lock
Who needs a key anymore? The Lockly Vision is a unique, keyless entry smart lock that comes with an integrated video doorbell. It offers numerous ways to lock and unlock your door and it lets you see and talk to whoever is outside before unlocking, meaning you don't have to get off your couch!
This secure pro deadbolt smart lock is equipped with WiFi, but that's not all. It also comes with a biometric fingerprint feature, which can recognize your fingerprint in just .5 seconds, and then unlock your door in just 1 second. It also has a hack-proof PIN Genie digital keypad, meaning it's nearly impossible for someone to guess your access code. It does this when entering your PIN by always shuffling number locations on the secure, backlit keypad.
Lastly, the smart lock comes with the LOCKLY phone app. This allows you to see a log of who entered and what time they did remotely. It also allows you to share the key or code remotely with your family, guests, or service people for permanent access, specific dates, or periods.
Ultraloq U-Bolt Pro Wi-Fi Smart Lock
Not only does the Ultraloq U-Bolt Pro use fingerprints, but it also allows you to use your voice. Plus, you also have the opportunity to use a keypad, mobile app, or traditional key, meaning there are many options to ensure you're property is safe and secure.
