Comparison of Advantages and Disadvantages Between Automatic Smart Locks and Lifting and Anti-locking Smart Locks

1. What are automatic smart locks and lift-up lock smart locks?


There are two types of automatic smart locks. One is a security smart lock with a self-elastic lock body. When the door is closed, the anti-lock device is triggered to automatically pop out the lock tongue to lock up.


However, the fully automatic intelligent lock of the self-bounce lock body is not really "automatic", because, in the era of mechanical locks, the self-bounce lock body has appeared. Moreover, the lock tongue cannot be automatically retracted when opening the door, and the handle needs to be pressed down to complete the unlocking.


The other is a fully automatic smart door lock driven by a motor in the whole process. After the user completes the unlocking authentication such as fingerprint and password, the lock cylinder is driven by the motor, so that the lock tongue is retracted into the lock body to complete the door.


At the same time, when the user closes the door, there is an infrared sensor. When the door is closed to the designated position, a command is issued to make the motor drive the dial of the lock cylinder, thereby driving the lock tongue to extend out of the lock body to complete the anti-locking action, and no manual operation is required in the whole process.


The security smart lock that lifts and locks up needs to complete the unlock authentication such as fingerprint or password when opening the door, and then press the handle down to complete the door. When you go out and lock, you only need to lift the handle to complete the lock, which is indeed more convenient than mechanical locks. However, in terms of convenience, fully automatic smart locks driven by electric motors have better prospects in the market.


2. Comparison of the advantages and disadvantages of automatic smart locks and lifting and anti-locking smart locks


The advantage of an all-motor-driven fully automatic smart lock is convenience. After closing the door, you can leave with confidence. For users, it solves the amnesia that often forgets to lock and the obsessive-compulsive disorder of repeated checks. Moreover, entering the fingerprint to open the door can optimize the user experience, and virtually improve the sense of grade of the smart lock. At the same time, the fully automatic smart lock driven by the motor can be used with more than 90% of the anti-theft doors on the market, and there is no need to replace the lock body. Only need to replace the panel and lock cylinder during installation, which can reduce a lot of inventory pressure for door enterprises, dealers, and locksmiths, and save a lot of complicated procedures such as opening and changing holes.


But fully automatic smart locks also have their shortcomings. First of all, because the fully automatic smart lock (except the self-bounce lock body) requires the power drive of the motor, the power consumption is relatively high. Secondly, the requirements for manufacturing precision, craftsmanship, and quality of fully automatic smart locks are very high. Because once the door is deformed, or the gear fails, it is easy to fail to lock or lock. Therefore, it is a test for enterprises in terms of stability and quality.


The advantages of the above anti-locking smart lock are mainly due to long development time, mature technology, good stability, and relatively low failure rate. The disadvantages are mainly manifested in two aspects: first, the convenience is not as good as the automatic smart lock; second, due to the lag in the standard, it is difficult for this kind of smart lock to match all anti-theft doors, and the installation is relatively inconvenient.
