Technology is in a constant cycle of replacing objects we never thought it would.
Within the home, it is now not uncommon to find automated systems for the simplest items – from door locks to light bulbs. Along with automating home security, these items have been included and have since eliminated the need for the use of a key. While keeping a key would come in handy, it would no longer need to be used in day-to-day life.
While many believe that the movement to digital door locks is a natural progression, many are calling it a revolution. This revolution was actually started by a company called iRevo in South Korea in 1997. Since, there have been 2.8 million digital door lock systems sold throughout the world. The largest demand for these products, and the largest growing markets are in Korea, Scandinavia, America, the UK, Turkey and France (according to Yale Lock).
There are a variety of different digital door lock solutions for any home. These include a push-button system, a keypad that uses a code, and even a key fob similar to those that now come with most vehicles. One of the largest companies to sell these locks in America is called Yale, who have been lock providers in varying degrees for many, many years. Their most popular digital door locks are a touchscreen or push-button deadbolt, which can be used in tandem or separately from a key to secure your home. Even better, these items can be integrated with a variety of different security systems, including Z-Wave.
While Australia may not be one of the highest-demand areas for this new revolution in home security, it is definitely a rising choice in the quest to create peace of mind at home.
