Transponder Keys – The hidden security to your car

So you’ve finally given up looking for that lost Car Key, even though you knew it would turn up somewhere!?! Better go get it replaced, surely it won’t cost too much, it’s just a key after all! Right? Unfortunately this is no longer the case, Cars are no longer just that big hunk of metal getting you from A to B. Now it’s all Bluetooth this and Hybrid that, which even the keys have had a drastic upgrade. In the late 1990’s there was quite a rise in Automotive Theft and the insurance companies were being inundated with claims because of it. A decision was made and put forward to Car Manufactures that if a change wasn’t implement they would no longer continue to insure vehicles. Following this was the introduction of Transponder Keys. Essentially a Transponder Key has a small chip within the head of the key that is coded to the car, without this chip the car will not start! This process happens without you even noticing, there is a coil/ring around your Ignition which reads the code from the chip and relays that information to your cars control module that then allows your car to start. ( People commonly confuse this with an Immobiliser, which is a similar concept but would generally require you to use a separate remote or activate a hidden switch within the car, whereas a Transponder just runs in the background as such upon normal operation ). No longer were criminals able to manipulate/force ignition barrels or attempt to hot wire vehicles. Due to this security upgrade, keys have now progressed from...

Digital Locksets – It’s as simple as 1 2 3

Losing the battle when it comes to spare keys? Getting no where replacing broken or lost keys for Friends & Family or even Staff members? Maybe its time to ditch the keys and look towards a digital lock. The concept of Digital Locks has been around for many years, since becoming more popular & technology progressing we now have more range for different door situations along with they actually can look quite stylish now. There are 3 main types available when it comes to Digital series locks – Mechanical Combination, Electronic Combination & Biometric. Mechanical Combination locks are best suited to weather prone areas as there are no electrical components involved but it is limited to just the one user code. Electronic Combination would have to be the most frequently used as it has both Residential & Commercial applications. Varying models can hold anywhere from 10 – 100 user codes, these codes can be deleted individually by the Master User which saves time & money if Staff turnover is an issue. Biometric is by far my favourite, but that’s purely because I’m a fan of anything a little bit techy & that has a bit of an out of the ordinary wow factor to it. Biometric locks operate by reading & identifying certain points within your fingerprint to allow access. No longer will you get caught outside in your pyjamas as the door slams shut behind you while grabbing the morning paper. Mind you, the view over Golden Grove isn’t too bad first thing in the morning....
