What is an Electronic Door Lock?
It may have been a while since you’ve even thought about door locks and, like everything else in our fast-paced world, the technology of locks has changed to keep up with our modern lifestyles. So what is an electronic lock?
Simply put – an electronic lock is a lock operated by an electric current. The electric current powers either an electromagnet, a solenoid or a motor. They can be stand-alone locks, or they can be operated remotely. These automated smart locks are becoming increasingly popular for both offices and homes. Our local locksmiths are able to instal electronic locks that will offer convenience and security to your home.

· Keyless Entry
There’s a lot of freedom to be gained from not having to search for keys – depending on the type of lock you choose, keyless entry allows you to open the door using a keycode or a secure phone app.
· Share Access and manage users
Do you need to grant someone access (i.e. cleaner, family member) – a smart lock will allow you to share an access code and monitor its use through your smart phone app. This type of cloud-based locking system is also very popular for Airbnb.
· Secure and value-adding
Smart locks give you an added level of security and often allow you to control who is accessing your home and when. Smart locks are a great way to add-value and modernise your home.
