Russian Lock Company Provides Phone-based Home Access
Guardian's system employs NFC and BLE technologies to enable home owners to unlock their doors without the use of a physical key, simply by coming within range of a door or tapping a phone near a lock.
Jan 23, 2019—
Russian door-locking technology company Guardian has launched a new door lock called ESMART Cyber, which employes wireless technology from ISBC Group to allow home owners to use a mobile phone to access their residence. The solution employs Near Field Communication (NFC) and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) technologies to provide two options for triggering the opening of a lock, utilizing a mobile phone and an app downloaded to that phone, or a contactless key fob. The smartphone identification system comes with encryption to protect it from interception by air, cloning or hacking, according to Dmitriy Kornienko, ISBC Group's CMO.
Guardian first considered the technology for a new keyless-entry product several years ago, says Alexey Gvozdev, the firm's marketing director. "Every year, electronic locks become more popular everywhere," he explains, and the company chose to develop a solution, leveraging that trend, that would make it easier for consumers to access their homes, while also reducing the risk of forced entry with a fake or stolen key. "For the convenience and safety of our customers," he states, "we decided to produce the Electromechanical Lock Guardian series" of ESMART cyber door locks.
Users can download an app to set up the unique ID number that will unlock their device. The ESMARTaccess mobile app is available here for iOS devices, or here for Android devices. The content-management software is provided by a third party, Kornienko explains. The product also comes with a key fob with a built-in RFID tag and BLE beacon.
