Access Control - 'And why Not' - LocksOnline Review
I’m all for technology that makes our life easier. In the last 50 years there is barely a facet of our lives that hasn’t been changed dramatically by the advent of microchips and electricity.
Even the technophobes these days can be found glued to a capacitive handset that has more bulk processing power than the machines that sent the Apollo missions to the moon. Something that hasn’t changed and perhaps should in my opinion is the humble key. In 4,000 years the same principle has applied and still does, that’s older than most religions!
Automotive central locking is now considered standard throughout the industry even on budget models, it just makes life easier to have access to your property by the simple click of a button and I see no reason why more people don’t implement the same systems in their homes, this is what we in the trade call Access Control.
We’ve all been there, stood outside the house with three bags of shopping in the worst weather this side of El Nino, fumbling in our pockets for keys which of course is always in the very last pocket.
There is now so much choice on the market for the tech savvy homeowner that these situations are a thing of the past, your home can be as easy for you to access as your car.
The range of options open to you are enormous, from the press of a button, a swipe of a card or even from your mobile phone with the latest Bluetooth controlled devices you can control your gates doors and windows, home automation is finally here and it’s here in a BIG way!
Simons Voss are one of the leading names in access control solutions and between their range almost anything is possible. Don’t fancy the idea of losing a fob or card? Do you forget pin numbers easily? Then biometric is the way forward for you, just swipe your thumb across the pad and access is granted. This technology is available to buy on the market right now and is a lot more affordable than you might think and these systems can be chopped and changed to suit the needs of pretty much anyone from the biggest of corporations down to a 1 bedroom flat where the owner wants something bespoke, a little bit special without compromising security.
Want to be part of the future? I know I do.
