A life of ease...no more keys
Smart phones have changed our lives in an unimaginable way. Think about this, you can pay your bills, do your banking, plan your travel, order your groceries, clothing, food, etc. all at the touch of the screen. So, it shouldn’t come as a surprise when we say you can now use your mobile phone as key to open locks. This is made possible by intelligent security systems that rely on wireless access control, mostly based on the internet. You just have to download the app on your smartphone and you are good to go. This system offers a host of benefits such as
- You don’t have to deal with a bunch of keys, just having your phone is enough
- Lesser chances of lost keys, unless of course, you lose your phone. And, even in that case, it is just a matter of downloading the app onto another smartphone or tablet
- There is no problem or awkwardness when you need to get your key back from someone who you have shared it with before. All you need to do is change the access code on the app
- Using the app, you can open the door for visitors even when you are not physically present.
One risk to consider however is the risk of cybercrime. If someone hacks your phone or the software application your smart key system uses, they can gain access to your property. Food for thought, isn’t it? Contact a locksmith to learn more about how you can enjoy the benefits of a smart key system without the perils of one.
