For first time users, this is a common question that many people ask.
Why Digital Lock?
Many homeowners ponder the differences in using digital lock compared to a traditional door lock. Well, we shall break down this into 2 main differences:
Till date, many Singaporeans are using the conventional type of door locks that use only mechanical keys to unlock the door. Ask yourself this question. Have you lost your keys before? Have you forgotten about your keys that were left outside the house after you unlock the door? Well, most of us do. Immediate action was to pray that nobody knows where you stay or perhaps to change the lock as soon as possible.
The demand for digital or biometric door locks have increased over the past years and one of the main reason why is that there is no need for mechanical keys! Digital locks come in various types. Majority or almost all the locks have numeric pin code access and is match with either fingerprint or even RFID access to gain entry. Over the past years, with technology advancement, some digital door locks also come with the integration of both and using of Bluetooth access. Some may ask what happens if I lose the RFID? This is the benefit of using digital access, that users are able to delete directly from their lock set. Instead of spending more money to replace a new set.
Digital door locks also come with an alarm system whereby it will be triggered when there is a presence of intrusion/break-in. Therefore, in terms of security, will pass off better compared to normal lock.
Many users find it a hassle in finding your keys even when it is inside your pocket. Some may also leave keys inside the car or perhaps in the office. Digital locks do not require physical keys to unlock the door due to the different access provided.
The different type of access includes: Fingerprint / RFID (card) / Number Pin Code / Key / Bluetooth / Zwave (phone/smart devices) *take note different lock comes with different access*
Which means even when you leave your house without anything in your pocket, you would not need to be worried about being stranded outside your house with the keyless digital lock.
However, with the increasing demand of digital locks, you should take extra caution when you are purchasing your own digital locks. Try to avoid parallel imported locks and opt for locally authorised digital door locks for better durability, warranty and safety assurance.
