ENTR: the award-winning digital lock that turns your front door into a smart door
Why do we lock our doors with a technology used by the ancient Egyptians? For centuries, the answer was pretty simple: because nobody invented anything better. No longer.
Smart home technologies are changing how we interact with our domestic environment, including the front door. Smart locks like the ENTR provide an affordable, sustainable 21 st -century solution, with easy installation to put homeowners in total control of door security. The front door is the gateway to the smart home, so any home automation ecosystem needs a smart lock to make it complete, says Thomas Schulz, EMEA Marketing and Communications Director, Digital Access Solutions, at ASSA ABLOY. Market penetration of smart technologies is growing fast. Our keyless, connected locks are very much part to this. What s so smart about a smart lock? It comes down to convenience and security. Replace an existing lock cylinder with an ENTR lock and you can open your home or office using a smartphone app, keypad PIN, remote control or even fingerprint. With ENTR , there s no longer any need to cut spare keys for kids, cleaners, carers or temporary workers.
It takes a couple of swipes on a phone or tablet screen to share digital keys with family or anyone who needs to access your home or office and to revoke the keys instantly whenever you want. ENTR also locks itself automatically when you exit, so worrying whether you remembered to lock the door becomes a thing of the past. embedded content Quick to install, cost-effective to run, secure to its core Like all the cleverest technologies, ENTR is easy to install. It takes a few minutes for a skilled DIYer or professional to retrofit an ENTR lock. There s no wiring or drilling, and no need for cabling. You simply replace the existing cylinder with the new ENTR digital lock. ENTR is also cost-effective to run. It s powered by rechargeable batteries that only need 16 hours charging per year over their 5-year lifespan. And it has a kind environmental footprint.
Packaging and battery are both recyclable, as is 90% of the lock materials. This is a sustainable lock of the future. To see more security benefits, you need to look inside the ENTR . Unlike other smart locks, ENTR mechanics are based on patented technologies from some of Europe s most trusted home security brands. It offers a class-leading combination of physical and electronic security. The mechanical hardware behind the digital layer already meets stringent standards, because it s tried and tested in millions of homes and offices worldwide. This helps explain why the ENTR won a product innovation award from global smart home publication, SMAhome. SMAhome awards are judged anonymously by a jury of industry insiders, including system integrators and established service providers. ENTR was selected from among 28 smart home product finalists to receive the overall Popularity Award for 2017.
The jury cited affordability, convenience, sustainability and easy integration with leading smart home ecosystems. A door is more than just a door Home automation technology has progressed way beyond smart thermostats and connected kettles. In fact, consumer surveys regularly pinpoint home security as its most important application. ENTR works perfectly as an affordable, stand-alone smart door lock, which you unlock with an app and an encrypted Bluetooth connection. But it is also built using standard protocols, and so integrates seamlessly with several leading European smart home and home automation ecosystems. Fit an ENTR , make the connection, and you can control your front door lock from the same interface that operates the thermostat, lighting, smoke alarms, CCTV and other domestic smart devices.
