Lock technology has progressed incredibly quickly throughout 2020 and even further into 2021. The functionality that was once only a thing of science-fiction is now available to everyone. From locks that are entirely touchlesswith NFC & RFID tech, wired locks that completely get rid of batteries, and even locks that can be opened with a simple push of a button on your phone thanks to Bluetooth compatibility. Check out our picks for the most necessary locks you need in your building now.
In a world where 95% of the population has a Bluetooth-capable mobile phone, the obvious necessity for lock manufacturers was to build a lock that could be opened, closed, and managed through ones phone. As our phones become more like an all-encompassing wallet, storing cards, passwords and the like, now we have the ability to open and close locker doors without laying a finger on the lock. What’s even greater is the increased security that comes with a Bluetooth-compatible lock, as the key to that lock will always be in your pocket.
NFC & RFID Locks
Similar to Bluetooth, NFC (Near-Field Communication) and RFID (Radio-Frequency Identification) locks take full advantage of touchless technology by allowing locks to be opened with key fobs, access cards and more. Companies have already been exploring these technologies by using them on building entrances to authorize access to certain personnel. Now, we’re seeing this innovation come to personal assigned and rental lockers across every industry. As an added perk, these locks are perfect for managing access within a building, using the same fobs with different levels of access.
Wired Locks (No Batteries Required)
Last but not least of our picks are wired locker locks for companies that want to completely rid themselves of batteries. The greatest thing about these types of locks is the networked system for locker banks that all connect to a central locker management system. From this system the locks can be periodically opened for after-hours maintenance or scheduled cleaning, for example. Also, these wired locks are often paired with NFC, RFID, and Bluetooth compatible locks for even greater contactless flexibility.
