DesignEdge has joined forces with a leading lock manufacturer to explore the design of its next generation electronic door lock. Technology such as the Internet of Things (IoT) is significantly influencing the way in which access codes are programmed, allowing accountability and key control of smart locks through mobile phone apps, RF cards and other methods increasing security throughout commercial and domestic applications.
The objective for DesignEdge was to engineer an ergonomic design and highly durable electronic lock within a luxury look die-cast enclosure encompassing a range of entry methods including the use of push-button code, smart card or smartphone. Proximity RFID technology allows users to unlock their doors via smart devices or with a keyfob that comes with the system. The result will mean controlling the entire lock system remotely and no more fumbling in the dark or trying to find your keys when your arms are full.
