The perfect home safety solution must not only be convenient and reliable, but also address every access point in the home to eliminate any vulnerabilities. People today can choose from a range of digital and traditional locks depending on their preference. As technology evolves, home secuirty and safety solutions are also being upgraded with features that make life easy and safe. Traditional locks as we have known them could soon phase out and it is time to secure homes with a more sturdy and reliable solution.
We enquire with Shyam Motwani, executive VP & business head, Godrej Locks and Architectural Fittings & Systems, on how to best secure homes today and as an expert in this segment, he believes the following three solutions are some of the best bets in the market currently.
A digital lock can be the most effective and enhanced safety solution for the home. One must consider technological features such as RFID, biometric - 360-degree fingerprint registration for maximum security and PIN or password protection system. Another feature that you should look at is mechanical key over-ride which can open the lock in rare cases of technology breach.
In case of opting for traditional locks, one can look at the updated versions of rim locks that have added unduplicable levels of security. Rim locks with multi-bolts which use spring-less mechanical technology (EVVA technology), which leads to 30 trillion key combinations, making it impossible to duplicate the key
The most trusted – padlocks, also have certain features to be kept in mind as this category of locks can be the easiest to break. Look for a brass body which ensures rust and tarnish resistance thus providing long lasting strength. The lock should have boron hardened shackle, making it resistant to hacksaw and crowbar attacks.
