Delve into the fascinating journey of hotel locks, from traditional mechanical systems to today’s advanced smart access solutions. Discover how the hotel industry has prioritised guest safety and convenience throughout history.
In today’s digital age, the way we secure our homes and offices has evolved significantly. Gone are the days of traditional key-based locks. The modern era has ushered in the age of Smart Door Locks, a revolutionary technology that offers both convenience and enhanced security. As the leading distributor and service provider of ZKTeco in New Zealand and adjacent islands, NZTeco is at the forefront of this technological shift.
Smart Door Locks represent the next generation of digital security solutions. These advanced locks, often activated by RFID tags, fingerprint or facial recognition, and PIN codes, offer unparalleled convenience and safety. With select advanced models from NZTeco, users can experience remote operation via mobile apps and integration capabilities with the ZKBio CVSecurity system, given the right hardware. Our premium range predominantly features fingerprint recognition-based locks, ensuring a keyless and secure experience for users.
Types of Smart Door Locks
In the digital age, Smart Door Locks have become synonymous with advanced security and unparalleled convenience. Let’s explore the diverse types available in today’s market:
Keypad locks are designed for user-friendly access, allowing individuals to unlock doors using a unique pin code. These locks often feature backlit keypads, ensuring visibility even in dimly lit conditions. One of their standout features is the ability to store multiple pin codes, accommodating different members of a household or office.
Biometric locks utilize state-of-the-art technology to provide top-tier security. By identifying unique physical attributes, such as fingerprints or facial patterns, these locks ensure that only authorised individuals can gain access. Their precision and quick response time make them a favourite among users seeking both convenience and security.
Merging modern technology with security, Bluetooth locks offer a hands-free unlocking experience. By establishing a connection with a paired smartphone, these locks can detect when an authorised device is in proximity and unlock automatically. This feature not only offers convenience but also enhances security by auto-locking once the paired device moves out of range.
