Is Fingerprint Recognition for You?
ievo™ fingerprint reader has secured many businesses and high security buildings, ranging from National Arenas to Embassies to Construction Sites. But when it comes to your home or small business do you secure it with a biometric lock? There are an abundance of different locking systems available on the market, some more expensive than others. So the only serious question remains, do you opt for the most expensive option in the hope that it is the most effective security measure, OR do you evaluate each method, and choose the right one for you. We believe the latter. That is why we have compiled a comprehensive list to make it easier for you to make that decision.
The Key less Lock is the latest security technology. It’s incredibly easy to use because you will no longer have to look for your keys or worry about forgetting about where you set them down. The way it works is you programme the system with a unique code. But some are activated with sensor devices not unlike a garage door lock. On the downside, you might have to carry the device, and if you lose it your business or home could be jeopardy.
Deadbolt Locks are a moderately priced security option and provide effective protection. Very useful for external doors but not really appropriate for internal use. They are usually brass, bronze or steel, so they are very sturdy for the price tag.
The Horizontal Deadbolt Lock can be vulnerable if an individual is either strong enough to move the threshold away from the jamb or if they have a utensil to help them do so. But this can be avoided, by installing vertically or surface mounted. In addition, you could enhance security to this, by further installing a cast metal ring inside the surrounding frame.
The Spring Latch Lock is by far the most affordable option on this list and it’s very easy to install. On the other hand, it’s not very secure. In short terms the lock prevents release of the latch but can easily allow access for intruders to manipulate the door frame and change the knob.
A biometric door lock is perhaps the most high-tech security solution on the market today. Although some devices may be expensive, they are more than value for money. This is because they cannot be manipulated by vandals and data is protected in a secured area not in the door access system itself. Therefore, it doesn’t really attract intruders. However, it does have its disadvantages, biometrics usually require an engineer or technical assistant to install the reader. But most manufacturers supply you with one or refer you to a trusted installer who specialises in the building you wish to secure. But most definitely the most secure and cost effective method of security.
However, it must be said, that each one of these cannot 100% guarantee you full protection, but nothing can. You must take extra caution yourself, that way you will not be seen as vulnerable to potential intruders.
