Forget about your keys and say hello to simplified locking solutions
Keys and locks have been around for millennia. It’s high time they’re replaced by cards, keypad door locks or mobile apps, fingerprint readers and smart entrance walls.
“Where did I put my keys,” is a fairly common question. At every moment, we’re responsible for the keys to your house or flat, car, office etc. When you arrive home after dark and stand in front of your entrance door, shopping bags and purses in hands, begins the never-ending search for your keys before you can finally enter your home. Isn’t it time that we step into the 21st century?Shouldn’t you be able to open your entrance door with only a touch, voice command or simply by standing in front of your door? Luckily, this has now become reality. If you want to learn more about beautiful and incredibly smart doors, continue reading.
After millennia of keys and locks, which in all this time have remained more or less unchanged, cards were the first to begin replace them. The first to introduce the innovation were hotels mid-twentieth century via the use of punched cards that the guests used to unlock the doors to their rooms. The eighties saw the appearance of magnetic cards which became used as credit and debit cards as well as to open doors. Because they were often exploited, focus was put on the development of RFID (radio-frequency identification) cards. Nowadays, cards include an integrated chip that cannot be demagnetized and almost entirely prevents any kind of abuse. Key cards are used to unlock doors while in hotels, they’re required to turn power on as well as to access common areas, e.g. restrooms and clubrooms. Hotels are already employing more modern solutions to provide for the security of their guests as well as their belongings, but cards remain a viable and practical solution for unlocking the entrance door of your home. It’s much easier to find the card reader in the dark than locate the keyhole with your key.
