Commercial locksmith digital locks

Should you consider digital locks?

Digital locks are a great defence against attempted break-ins.

They remove the need for a key, while the code used for the digital lock can be more secure and is easily managed.

Digital locks are ideal for businesses or places where many different people are coming and going. Think of a hotel distributing codes to their guests, which can then be changed as old guests leave and new guests arrive. Digital door locks can be an effective tool in these types of businesses as they remove the risk and cost of lost keys or damaged access cards.


New innovation in digital security

The technology involved in digital locks is increasing and improving all the time, to refine the system to be impenetrable to attack.

Some researchers from the Kyoto University, Japan, recently published a report detailing just how secure today’s digital locks are, running all sorts of rigorous tests on the latest technology.

In a first for the expanding industry researchers, led by Professor Ken Umeno, have successfully provided conclusive proof that these digital coding systems are, in fact, unbreakable. How exciting!

“We first developed VSC in 2004 as a simple, fast cipher, and parts of it have already been utilised in the private sector. Many theoretical attacks in the past have failed to break it, but until now we hadn’t shown definitive proof of security.” – Professor Ken Umeno (Source)


Fingerprint scanner

Another high-tech alternative to digital locks is a fingerprint scanner. There’s not much else that beats the uniqueness of your own fingerprint!

Today’s devices are easy to use so you can add and delete the patterns of your employees as you need.

Master keys are great for:

  • Apartment landlords
  • Security guards
  • Cleaning and maintenance businesses

Master key systems are also known as restricted key systems. Find out more about these clever commercial solutions in this blog post.
