Bluetooth smart padlocks

As part of National Home Security Month, the Absolute Security Systems team are highlighting various ways to keep your home and possessions secure

The padlock reinvented

One exciting innovation has been Bluetooth ‘smart’ padlocks from Master  Lock®. They offer total control when protecting the most important valuables. This is because Bluetooth Padlocks can only be unlocked using an app on your smartphone. This versatility allows you to unlock the lock and give friends or relatives access when needed.

They are ideal for giving added security to garages, gates, sheds, bikes, outbuildings, storage units etc.

The related app with the lock allows you to control access to your designated area and review the entry log from the comfort of your phone. Bluetooth Padlocks can also offer temporary access when required and inform you of tamper alerts via e-mail when an unauthorised attempt to open the lock is made.

The padlock is battery operated and comes with a low battery notification and reminders on the padlock and in app. The battery is easily replaced and an inbuilt battery jump allows for temporary access if the battery dies while locked.

Beneficial for businesses and homeowners alike

The Bluetooth Padlock is beneficial for both businesses and homeowners looking to protect stock, equipment and possessions.

In addition there is also a Bluetooth Lockbox. This is ideal for those having to manage many locks and users.

Access to the Lockbox is gained via your Smartphone Backup using a numeric code on the lock keypad and you can share access with others on a temporary or permanent basis.  The Bluetooth Lockbox has a Master Lock® Vault Enterprise IOS or Android app to control access. It too comes with low battery notification and includes mounting hardware for easy hardware. It is ideal for those looking for a large secure storage capacity for keys and access cards.

Security app technologies now supported by NSI

In response to public demand the National Security Inspectorate (NSI) is now throwing its weight behind security app technologies. The NSI is the National Body which inspects firms like Absolute Security, who provide security systems.

The updated standard PD6662 now accommodates customers seeking to use remote devices (such as smart phones) to operate intruder alarms. This means that security systems with app features now come under the NSI’s remit and are legally covered and supported by their members.

Alarm systems utilising app technology will be fitted with a wi-fi link to your broadband router. This will then give you full control of the alarm remotely. You will receive notifications of alarm events and will be able to switch the system off or on remotely. You can also interrogate the memory of the system.
