Keyway Security Blog

Gone are the days when phones were only used for verbal communication. In this era of smartphones, it becomes a quintessential necessity for not just verbal but all types of communication from web browsing to video conferencing to business transactions and security. Innovation in telecommunication in the last decade has grown exponentially and digital solutions to the most basic of human necessity are achieved by smartphones. In the latest development, digital entrepreneurs have amalgamated three critical personal possessions into one: phone, wallet, and keys.

The challenge is not just to find a solution for your single key but for the entire keychain.  I’m giving you some incredible examples of keyway locks and security through smartphones that fortify your home security as well as personal security.

Touch To Open

With advanced technological security keys, you don’t have to fumble for your keys every time you want to unlock your door. Keyway Lock and Security revolutionize home security in a new way where all you need is to unlock your key through your smartphone. This is the ultimate level of convenience fused with technology. The virtual key system has the following benefits that stand out from the conventional system:

  • Virtual key system to monitor and control door access through an app.
  • Doesn’t require a complex installation process and is easy to upgrade
  • It can also be useful for bikes, cars, safes, and offices.
  • Smart security automation to control the entire house.

Evolution Of Your Smart Key

The new smart key is developed with simplicity in mind. The new smart keys help you send, receive and delete eKeys. You can also check the log of lock activities and also set notifications. It’s a simple technology where you just once launch the app and relax. No need to enter your password every time.

How Does a Smart Lock Work In Real-Time?

Yale Real Living Touchscreen Deadbolt

Yale Real Living Touchscreen Deadbolt

I experimented with the smart lock system and installed Yale Real Living electronic deadbolts founded by famous Linus Yale Jr. and Henry Towne in the 19th century. Other renowned companies in the smart lock and key system are August, Goji, and Lockitron. The locks are also a part of home décor and thus offered in various styles. I have installed the second-generation electronic deadbolts, which are quite good-looking illuminated touchscreen keypads or wireless connections to a smartphone.

  • The styling of these smart locks or digital locks is called keypads, which are installed on the outside of the door.
  • The styling is obviously “handsome” from the outside, and inside it is a large, brick-sized electronic lock with a battery enclosure. There are four battery units inside my door lock that last for a year, which indicates when the power dips low.
  • The deadbolt is programmed with a master code with multiple digital codes. You just need to push your palm to the screen and the door locks. In the same way when you come back to your house, just push your palm to your screen and see the number, type the code and the door unlocks.

An electronic door means you don’t have to carry keys with you and open it conveniently when you just step outside your door. However, you need to be careful as the information can be replicable and easy to distribute, so take care of the safety of your code.
