How Do We Choose the Best One from Various Smart Door Locks?

In recent years, smart locks have gradually entered the public's field of vision. But its unique design has always been controversial. How should consumers choose?


1. Mechanical lock cylinder VS electronic lock cylinder


At present, the lock bodies of smart locks in the industry are mainly divided into mechanical lock bodies and electronic lock bodies, and their respective advantages are distinguished. There are many manufacturers in the production and sales of mechanical lock bodies, which not only have a long development time but also have mature technology and a stable structure. Therefore, the mechanical lock body has more advantages in cost performance and stability. The electronic lock body is a new technology that gets on the bandwagon of the smart home. It can automatically unlock without relying on an external motor drive. Therefore, the door can be opened quickly, with almost no noise, low power consumption, and a good user experience. If there is an emergency for children and the elderly at home, even if the house is locked, the user can still unlock it with fingerprints or keys.


2. Handle smart lock VS push-pull smart lock


The common handle designs of smart locks are two types: handle type and push-pull type. The handle-type smart lock needs to be pressed down to unlock after verifying the fingerprint, which is mostly used in some basic models. The push-pull smart door lock can realize automatic opening and closing of the door. After the user has successfully unlocked it, it can be opened with a single push. It is mostly used in high-end series.


Although the push-pull type is more convenient, due to the incompatibility of the design or the size of the door lock, it is easy to get caught when closing or opening the door. At present, most doors are 70mm thick, and most smart locks are equipped with 60 lock bodies (the center wheelbase is 60mm), which results in insufficient space reserved between the lock body and the door frame, usually less than 5mm. However, most people's fingers are not less than 10mm in diameter, which will cause them to be pinched if they are not careful when opening and closing the door. The handle-type handle is usually in the same direction as the door opening, and the user will put his hand on the handle when unlocking, and naturally, the hand will not be caught.


3. Face recognition unlock


Face recognition is a new feature in smart locks, consumers will worry about whether it is safe? Can face information be accurately recognized in daily use? Is it possible to be unlocked by criminals through photo cracking?


But in fact, these worries are superfluous. The current door lock face recognition is based on three generations of 3D face recognition modules, and the false recognition rate of face recognition is less than a millionth. The face recognition smart lock has reached payment-level 3D face anti-counterfeiting, without fear of photo, dynamic video, and other counterfeiting methods, and comes with a 3D infrared night vision recognition function. Whether in strong light, backlight, or a dark environment, depth information can be obtained to accurately identify faces, truly bringing users a safe and convenient intelligent experience.


In general, controversial designs are often produced in the collision of innovative and mature technologies but can meet the needs of different consumers. Therefore, when consumers choose a smart lock, they must choose the one that suits them.
