We are all security conscious about our family, homes, cars and possessions, it’s an unfortunate but necessary part of our lives these days to protect ourselves and our property.
From early times doors have been an essential commodity to provide security and privacy to our homes. Now, it seems that another new technology has latched onto the door industry.
As yet it appears to be only available in the USA but I'm sure it won't be long before we in the UK will be able to purchase this new locking system.
This is not an advertisement - its a product which one of my colleagues recently came upon which we thought you would be interested in.
The new, Bluetooth lock is called The August Smart Lock and is available at Apple Stores in the USA from October 2014 and there are plans for future distribution to other countries. The August Smart Lock is partnered with Apple as it requires Bluetooth Technology and through the outlets can be demonstrated conveniently to customers.
Basically the idea is that through your Apple phone the Front Door to your property can be opened as you get close to your home or office. The August Smart lock works independently of your internet service and syncs with your phone using reliable Bluetooth technology. Apparently you can share the technology with your family and friends who are allowed to access your home so they can enter without ringing the bell or waiting outside in the rain. Included in the package are adapters for deadbolt attachment to accommodate other standard deadbolts. If you require deadbolts, latches and other door hardware please refer to our website.
This new innovation seems useful on the face of it and I’m sure our customers will be interested in using this type of locking system when purchasing their new timber entrance doors. One thing I did consider maybe was what if you leave your phone at work ? well August have thought about that as the deadlock can still work with you regular keys. I look forward to this new locking system coming to the UK.
