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.
To enable the key fob's use, Kornienko says, an individual must program the lock to accept the unique ID encoded to that fob by pressing a button inside the device. When the button is pressed, the device uses the NFC transmission to identify the fob and program its unique ID into the system. Alternatively, a person can use the mobile app to set up the key fob for use with that cyber lock, utilizing AES encryption. The lock can accommodate a mechanical key as well.
To employ the system, an individual first taps his or her phone near the front door. The reader captures the unique ID number, with cryptographic protection for security, via either NFC or BLE, then confirms that the ID is authorized to open that lock. If so, it releases its locking mechanism and the individual may then enter. To lock the door again, users can utilize the app or a mechanical key.
Guardian is among the three largest manufacturers of mechanical locks in Russia and the countries of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), Gvozdev says. Its products are sold through its dealer network in Ukraine, Armenia, Georgia and Russia, and the firm is currently in discussions with partners in Greece, Bulgaria and Serbia as well.
