Every year, new trend emerge that change the face of safety and security. Some of these will take hold and become the standard for coming years. Others may not have so much of the staying power. We however examine a few trends which safety and locksmith experts have foreseen to have huge impacts on 2017.
Commercial access control set to get even bigger in 2017. More businesses are expected to install more complicated but easier to learn and use access control systems such as:
– Swipe cards to reduce the number of keys being carried around. This is especially useful in buildings where access control is paramount.
– Security fobs are also very durable and long lasting. They are less likely to get lost than keys and can even be put into wallets and purses and used without bringing them out.
We foresee access control mechanism to become more prevalent because it increases security and monitoring. Employees’ movements and access can be logged to know everyone’s whereabouts always. This can also track work times and duration at different parts of the organization to increase efficiency. Most importantly, commercial access control setups will provide more information and comfort to business owners.
Bluetooth locking systems:
This is a trend that has been around for a while and this may yet the its breakthrough year. More recent cars are already introducing cars that start without keys and access directions and other information from the driver’s smartphone. Bluetooth locks are very sophisticated and can automatically open door when the control device is within proximity of the lock. No more keys or chains, just your smartphone will now open doors. Expect Bluetooth locks to become more acceptable among home owners and business owners as the year goes by and manufactures bring out newer models with more efficiency and capabilities.
Remote control car alarm systems:
Car alarm key fobs are set to become even more powerful than before. Some cars now have features where the driver could kill the engine from over a distance of 1 kilometer. You can also now start your care without using a regular key. Notifications can also be set to be sent out from the car to smartphones to inform about oil changes, car status messages and alarms where necessary. Remote control car alarm systems now extend to apps that allow you to access your car to see latest updates, alarms and status messages. Even when the driver accidentally locks his keys in, the remote access apps can assist in contacting the car company to remotely unlock the car for the driver.
