Parallel Imported vs Local Authorised Digital Locks | AN Digital Lock

Parallel-imported digital locks? Take extra caution. 

In the recent light of events, we realised that there are companies in the local market selling Parallel Imported SAMSUNG / YALE / KABA Digital Locks; These locks are designed to use in Korea (dry weather), as such, certain components are not suitable for high humidity conditions here in Singapore, which may cause malfunction or shorten the life of products i.e. Fingerprint Locks. Furthermore, most of these companies outsource the installations to freelancers and therefore, the workmanship is poor and not consistent.

A lot of consumers who purchased and installed these "Parallel Imported" digital locks have contacted us for re-installation of their Digital Locks and Break Lock services. They have since seen significant changes and improvements with our Locally Authorised sets compared to Parallel Imported sets.

Locally authorised digital locks for a peace of mind

Local Authorised SAMSUNG / YALE digital locks comes with an Administrator Password to control the unauthorised or accidental change of password, enrolment or deletion of cards whereas Parallel Imported sets do not come with such security features.

At AN Digital Locks, all our products come with 2 years local warranty and lifetime technical support. We will also provide free consultation and installation to all our potential and valued customers.

It all boils down to this very question:
