Enjoy optimum home security with smart lock windows – to be supplied and installed in the near future by South London Windows. Harnessing electronic and mechanical locking systems, windows can be locked and unlocked wirelessly by you, the authorised user.
A smart lock removes with the need for a traditional key and allows an authorised user to unlock windows for family members and other authorised individuals with a simple smartphone app. These kind of security systems are part of the Internet of Things (IoT).
Here at South London Windows we will be supplying and installing smart window locks from Yale, one of the world’s longest-established lock companies. Yale’s Conexis L1 system – originally developed for door security – allows users to send and receive virtual keys; control access from a smartphone – and to dispense with the need for a physical key. Conexis systems are quick and easy to fit, feature tamper-proof alarms, and are battery operated – meaning no wires and no hassle.
Conexis smart windows will integrate with Yale Smart Home Hub, which also incorporates smart door locks, CCTV, IP cameras and domestic alarms. Some future smart window solutions may also be dimmable.
That’s right – no more physical keys to lose or worry about. With Conexis, your smartphone becomes your key. You can also send virtual keys to friends or family members, granting them access for any period you wish – from a few hours to a few weeks. And if you need to cancel or remove a virtual key from someone, you can do so in an instant. Several keys are featured with the Conexis system; others can be bought using the app.
The emergence of the “Internet of Things” will lead to significant changes in the way we live. Much of the IoT may seem somewhat frivolous – think connected toasters and toys – but when it comes to home security, it will present a range of powerful tools to help keep your home and your family safe, while giving you the flexibility to change who does and who does not have access to this most important of domains.
South London Windows prides itself on being at the forefront of all new developments in the realm of windows and doors. As such, you can rest assured we will be the first to stock smart windows when they arrive – and the most competent at ensuring our customer base gets the most out of this revolutionary security system.
