Yale ENTR Gives Homeowners More Security, Control, And Reliability
Yale, which is owned by Assa Abloy (OMX: ASSA B) has been manufacturing residential door locks, safes, padlocks, and security alarms since 1868. The American-based company will attempt to revolutionize the door lock, with the upcoming release of their new Smart lock, ENTR.
This new lock consists of a mechanical cylinder that works in conjunction with Smart Technology to allow users to open their door via their smartphone. Alternatively, consumers can opt to unlock and lock their doors, utilizing an electronic key code, remote control, and fingerprint scanner. On top of this, visitors can be granted access to the home without the need of a mechanical key. Instead visitors can be issued a temporary electronic key code that will give them access to the home for a specified duration.
For a lock with such great technology, the installation will be as simple as anything you have ever seen. No drilling or wiring is necessary. Instead, ENTR will fluidly replace the existing door locks, thanks to the retrofitting design. The lock operates utilizing high-efficiency batteries, which eliminate the need for an electric source.
While, ENTR may look like an ordinary Smart lock, it is anything but. It features characteristics that are unmatched amongst its competitors. Although the feature is necessarily new, the auto-lock functionality will definitely provide the homeowner with peace of mind. The Smart lock will also be compatible with the RWE platform, so it will support Buderus heating controls, Samsung camera, Philips Hue lighting systems, Miele household appliances and more to come in the future. Thus far the RWE platform has received high praise from various independent testing groups, in regards to its data security.
Yale ENTR will showcase at the IFSEC 2016, but the release date remains unannounced.
