As technology continues to advance and change the way we live, so too does it change the way we work. Technological advancements have certainly changed the locksmith industry. While smart locks, keyless entry systems and card access entry set-ups are making our homes and businesses safer, they also require locksmiths to keep up with changing technologies and new developments.
Keyless Entry Systems
Keyless entry systems are familiar to both car locksmiths and residential locksmiths. Keyless entry is an umbrella term for all door locks that don’t require a physical key. Keyless systems include keypad locks (user enters a PIN to unlock the door), proximity locks (key fob) and wifi /bluetooth locks.
Biometric or fingerprint door locks are a type of keyless entry system that allows you to unlock your door with your fingerprint and/or a PIN. Fingerprints of authorized persons are stored in a thermal or optical scanner, allowing them to gain entry to the premises without a key.
Smart Door Locks
A smart door lock works with your smartphone to lock and unlock doors. Not only do you not have to worry about forgetting your keys, but you can also monitor who is coming and going from your home and assign specific privileges to different people. Smart locks are generally accessed via an app and allow you to add permanent or temporary users – handy for holiday homeowners.
