No matter how well we take care of ourselves throughout our lifetime our bodies age, even if our minds stay agile. As our bodies age we start to lose a little mobility here and there and the daily tasks we took for granted so long ago start to become a real challenge, even the simple things like answering the door can become painful.
Luckily we live in a day and age where there is technology available to help with even the most mundane tasks, from robotic cleaners that will set off completely unaided and hoover your carpets, to complete systems that allow you to unlock your front door electronically at the push of a button without even leaving your armchair.
We call the latter, where technology is used to allow specific and controlled access to a room or building, Access Control. This is a broad term for door locking solutions with anything from keypads, proximity sensors and door intercom systems but there can be a huge variation in the methods used to engage and disengage the lock. To simplify this into easy to understand terms I’m going to give you the lowdown on what is best to spend your money on and most importantly, what can make your life that little bit easier!
The first thing I am going to talk about is the LocksOnline RF Mag kit. The RF Mag kit is an electronically operated, magnetic locking system that has a built in RF receiver so that it can be operated with the included remote control. This device has a range of up to 18 meters allowing the user to be able to operate the door from almost anywhere in the typical house. This is a very cost effective device; you simply need the LocksOnline RF Mag kit, a power supply unit and an installation pack. Don’t worry if you have limited experience with electrics etc, just pick up the phone, give us a ring and our dedicated tech team can talk you through the whole process. You can get all of this for under £200 making this one incredibly cost effective solution.
Perhaps you or someone you know has limited mobility and use a wheelchair or walker frame to get around? Most large establishments these days have automatic door openers and closers that sense a person approach and open the door for them, this is nothing new. What is new however is that you can now have system like this fitted to pretty much any door with our LocksOnline Door Automation Kit. This can be a fully tailored kit to meet your needs explicitly, so why not pick up the phone and let us talk you through all we have to offer.
