At the forefront of this revolution have been devices such as Apple’s Siri, Amazon Echo, Google Assistant and Home Hub, which have become commonplace in homes across the UK.
These devices connect to a range of smart technology allowing users to control everything from lights to heating systems. It’s not just homes that can benefit from smart technology though, businesses can also make use of the advantages that smart devices provide as well as setting up a smart ‘home’ system in the office.
While you might not want to turn your business premises into a high-tech hub stuffed full of smart technology, there is one smart device that could provide an immediate benefit. Smart door locks offer business owners a great way to immediately upgrade their security, simply and effectively.
Smart door locks dispense with the need for keys to access your office or other business premises. Instead a keypad, fob or smartphone is used to control the lock. For businesses where there may be multiple people who require access, this helps to reduce the risk of lost or stolen keys.
In addition, because access permissions or keypad codes can be changed quickly without the need to change all the locks, you can easily do this in the event of staff leaving the business without returning their key fobs.
Now you’ve seen the possible benefits of installing smart locks at your business premises, Steve Harrison from Locksmith Leicester has taken a look at some of the major smart door lock brands and models in the UK.
Yale is one of the most well-known names when it comes to locks, but you probably think of them as traditional lock makers. Yale has now moved into the smart door locks market, providingseveral entry methods. Locks come with a touch panel control, or a key card or tag; while some give remote access via a smartphone if you connect the lock to a smart home system.
Yale smart locks are battery operated and use four AA batteries. You’ll get a warning if the battery is getting low and can even use a 9V battery touched on the bottom of the unit for temporary power if the batteries do run out.
