I have often wondered why we remain so reliant on a physical key for our house doors. Earlier today as I was fumbling around for my door key in my bursting handbag with the rain and wind thrashing down on me, I wondered again why don’t we have a better system for gaining entry to our doors?
There are various alternatives available. We only have to look to the car industry to see devices which work when you are in close proximity to your car so no more hunting around in your handbag. Also there are fingerprint or iris recognition systems widely in use in airports and high security locations, which may offer a slightly more secure option. A key pad entry system outside your door would also be possible where you simply enter a code or password to gain entry as you typically see at the main door for an apartment or in a commercial property. While we seem to be inundated with passwords in every other area of our lives, particularly anything online, I don’t know many people with codes for entering their homes.
In fact, it seems that there are many of these types of systems available so no need to write to Dragon’s Den with the idea, however it strikes me that we are traditionalists at heart and most of us like the feel of a key in our hand. As a nation we seem to like to personally lock the door behind us and feel safe in the knowledge we have physically turned the key in the lock.
At Doorsan we do not sell any of these keyless door gadgets as yet, however, we do sell a wide selection of quality doors and door security hardware. In the future we may offer a wider range of high tech security systems if people start to show an interest in such devices.
