SafeTech Debuts Bluetooth RFID Universal Door-Locking System
SafeTech Products, a startup that makes security solutions using radio frequency identification, Bluetooth, biometrics, Near Field Communication (NFC) and Z-wave communications technologies for home automation, has announced the Quicklock - Doorlock. The door-locking system combines Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE, also known as Bluetooth Smart) and NFC into a single locking system, so that doors can be unlocked via smartphones, key fobs, key cards or key rings that employ NFC and/or Bluetooth.
Through a 30-day Kickstarter campaign that started on Aug. 26, the company is offering the Quicklock - Doorlock for an introductory price of $89, before normal retail distribution pricing is finalized. The company says it will also use the campaign to gather customer feedback.
"Our lock provides personal security and privacy for any door," said Ryan Hyde, the owner of SafeTech Products, in a prepared statement, "yet offers more functionality than any locking system on the market."
Components for the Quicklock - Doorlock are sourced globally and manufactured in Utah. Materials are scheduled to arrive next month, the company notes, so fulfillment can begin immediately once the Kickstarter campaign has ended.
