New Year, New Tech

Biometric lock for access control.

The holidays have come and gone and the new year is here. If you didn’t find the latest tech underneath your Christmas tree, don’t sweat – Flying Locksmiths is here to help. With a lineup of the newest technologies to help protect your home and business, 2019 is the perfect time to upgrade your existing system to improve your security this year.

SMARTPHONE ACCESS CONTROL

Balancing convenience and security is vital in order to ensure that your home and business are protected while still allowing access for those who need it. Adding a smartphone access control system to your building does just that! With smartphone and Bluetooth access, a lock can be paired directly with an employee’s smartphone and access can be managed by a remote administrator. With the ability to limit access as needed, record entry activity and monitor security status of your building, smartphone access control systems allow you to provide the security, convenience, and peace of mind knowing that your property is protected.

BIOMETRIC LOCKS

The threat of thieves gaining access to the inner workings of a business, such as computer systems and physical documents, has many companies turning to technology for new and improved ways of securing access control and protecting their assets from disaster. Biometric scanning may sound like something out of a sci-fi movie, but it has become an affordable and effective security measure that every business should consider.

A biometric scanner takes the measurement of some portion of a person’s body and compares it to a digitally stored reading. If the match is exact, then the scanner reports a successful entry to the security device, similar to using a key card or password entry terminal. The two most common readings taken for biometric security are iris scans and fingerprint scans. Both are complex structures that are unique to each individual, and they are read quickly without invasive procedures that would be needed to do a DNA reading at every doorway.

VIDEO DOORBELL

Thieves will often test the waters on your home prior to a break-in in order to get an idea of the ideal time to come around. A video doorbell can be the ultimate deterrent that your family needs to help ward off unwelcome visitors. By being able to record footage, answer the door remotely, and be notified of activity, you can ensure that your family is protected no matter where you are. Many types of video door knobs connect directly to your home’s Wi-Fi and save the HD video footage to the cloud so you can access and review it from anywhere. Whether you are at work or on vacation, you know that your home security can be monitored.

2019 will bring plenty of new improvements in security technology for your home and business. Upgrade your system today to ensure that you and your family are protected. Contact a Flying Locksmiths location near you to learn more about the latest and greatest tech available.
