(Aug 6, 2012) — Home protection manufacturer and Z-Wave Alliance member, Vision Security, has developed a Z-Wave network-enabled door lock for the smart home and business. The security solution with the designation “ZM1702” is based on the Z-Wave wireless standard and offers a range of intelligent functions.
For example, owners can open and lock the door wirelessly from an Alarm Panel, PC, Tablet or Smart Phone. Moreover the lock features a keypad control panel for which specific access codes can be programmed, even remotely. In addition to increased security, the Vision Security door lock offers owners convenient setting options. These include the possibility of setting temporary access codes for a specific time of day, day of the week or for a limited period of time – even remotely via the Internet. For example, if workmen have been scheduled to come in the afternoon (while the resident is still absent), they are able to enter the house using a code that has been specially programmed for them. This means the house owner does not have to wait at home for the workmen to arrive. The home owner can then change the code again once the workers have left the house and the house remains secure.
Owners can configure up to 15 access codes to suit requirements in different cases. In addition every successful or unsuccessful attempt to open the door is registered and displayed by PC software. This clearly documents when, for example, a burglar attempted to gain access.
The “ZM1702” door lock opens up several markets for Vision Security, as it is secure, but at the same time can be controlled by mobile devices. This makes it suitable for both private homes and large companies or organisations who value security and flexibility,” explains Tony Wan, Administration Manager from Vision Security. “The door lock extends our continuously growing portfolio in the areas of ‘smart security, ‘property management’ and ‘hospitality’,” explains Z-Wave Chairman Mark Walters. “The product is ideally suited for the European market due to its versatility and scalability. In addition to this intelligent door lock, there are now over 650 products based on the Z-Wave wireless standard and certified to work together in a smart system. As a result, there is a broad range of convenient solutions available to home and business owners when setting up their smart properties.”
Compatible with European standards
Home and business owners do not need to make any special modifications to their doors in order to install the Vision Security door lock. The lock fits into conventional doors with a thickness of 38 millimetres or more, and can be installed in left or right opening doors. The lock is available with an external lever or knob and it is fitted with a cylinder lock that is locked from the outside with keys. From the inside it is locked with a rotary knob.
