Affected by the level of consumption and consumption, peoples awareness of smart homes and smart locks has increased. The smart lock market began to show an upward trend, especially in 2017 and 2018. During the two years, smart locks showed a rapid development. In the era of mobile internet and Internet of Things, smart locks are no longer satisfied with the basic functions of fingerprint unlocking and password unlocking. Instead, a smart door lock can make the familys lifestyle from simple to simple, and more powerful to protect the family. Property and family safety. At the same time, the Internet era is an era of experience is king . The rise of smart homes is also inseparable from the experience of smart life scenes brought by them. Smart locks are interpreting the essence of connecting everything in the connected era.
As a smart lock, biometrics such as fingerprints are the most convenient and efficient way to open the door, and live fingerprint recognition also greatly improves safety. In the application experience, the structural design of the smart lock is more and more perfect, and it is as far as possible to open the door with one hand, even to identify and open the door application, such as designing the fingerprint recognition module on the handlebar, while the hand touches the door handle, The authentication is completed; some mid-to-high-end smart locks have realized the automatic door opening application, no need for the user to control the handle to open the door. This design is for people who have more hands on the door and are not convenient to open the door. Its a good fit.
Smart door lock is a strong service-driven industry. Unlike other industries, the most critical aspect of smart door locks is after-sales service. For example, when a users smart door lock has a problem, the company needs to provide after-sales service immediately. At this time, the users tolerance for waiting is very low, unlike smart speakers or other products.
Incoming smart door locks, the greater significance is to let users quickly increase the awareness of smart door locks, and allow users to try new things at a lower cost. As for whether it can incite the industry, the final competition will be the comprehensive competitiveness of the company.
The biggest difference between a smart lock and a normal mechanical lock is that the smart lock can be controlled by the mobile phone, and the distance of the control distance depends on the connection mode supported by the smart lock. Most of the smart locks that can be remotely controlled by households today do not use direct access to the Internet, but are connected to the Internet through a gateway. When the smart lock is disconnected from the gateway, it is no different from a normal electronic lock.
The smart lock gateway not only allows the user to control wherever he is, but also allows the gateway to become a transit point for IoT information, such as automatically opening a cats eye video when being smashed, and automatically turning off the indoor light when going out. And other functions.
For 24-hour standby such as smart locks, low-power protocols such as Bluetooth and Zigbee are more suitable for electronic devices with high power requirements. But if you want to control remotely, you still need a gateway to connect to the Internet through Wi-Fi or network cable, and you must defend against the attacks of todays crisis network. The importance is self-evident.
To purchase a smart lock that can be remotely controlled, you are actually purchasing the corresponding gateway. At the time of purchase, try to choose the smart lock products of the same brand as other smart homes already purchased, or the products with the same network protocol and linkage, so that a gateway can drive the products of the whole family.
Smart locks have many other functions, such as knowing that children are not at home; through different permission settings, you can set up an access mechanism for special groups such as babysitters. It acts not only as a liberation key but also as a home. The little housekeeper of life. Its convenient application has increasingly attracted the chase of young people and has spread to a wide range of people.
At present, the technology of smart locks has matured, and its applications are constantly being developed and improved. The functions will only become more and more abundant, and the applications will only become more and more convenient. It will not only change the keys but also change our lives. habit. As the advantages of smart locks continue to emerge, issues such as security concerns and battery life will be eclipsed by technological advances. And the mechanical locks we have been proud of will be buried in the ever-changing technology wave.
Perhaps there are still many concerns about the security of smart locks in the market. They believe that smart locks have both mechanical concerns and vulnerabilities. Among them, the risk of networking is the focus that most consumers are worried about. For fear of smart lock networking, it is easily cracked by hackers and then brings huge risks.
In fact, smart locks are basically trustworthy products in terms of machinery. Basically, they are made of high-strength alloy or stainless steel and B-level lock cylinders. The difference is that the smart lock has built-in circuit board and control motor. In terms of networking, some smart locks are independent applications. Apart from the unlock function, there is no difference between ordinary locks; even for smart locks, smart home gateways and cloud service platforms provide powerful firewalls. Easy.
Finger vein recognition is a living body recognition technology. Based on the hemoglobin flowing in the living finger, the hemoglobin can absorb near-infrared light, and form a vein map, and extract features and identify the alignment by algorithm. Compared with the first generation biometric technology Fingerprint recognition, face recognition, it is more secure, and there is no way to crack it.
However, from the perspective of industrial development, these advantages are not enough to make the finger vein lock become the pioneer of the intelligent door lock revolution. The development of the venous lock product also needs to face two major challenges: low market awareness and high market price. According to relevant data, the annual growth rate of the smart lock industry exceeds 40%, and almost all of these fingerprint locks occupy a large market share, and the spread of venous locks on the consumer level is still relatively small. Second, the market price of the venous door lock is higher than the price of other smart door locks.
The smart lock industry wants to open up the C-end market, and consumers must have a comfortable and enjoyable purchase experience. The quality of the products directly determines whether consumers are willing to pay for the products, and the experience in the use process will affect the brand reputation. Improve and optimize your after-sales service, smart lock companies can recruit training and maintenance engineers, build their own after-sales service team, or cooperate with third-party professional intelligent lock after-sales service team to ensure high-quality installation and after-sales service.
The smart lock market cake is very attractive, but if you cant walk through the industry reshuffle period and stick to the industry explosion, you can only covet and have no chance to divide. In the view of Zhijia.com, improve the quality of after-sales service and insist on service-oriented. The idea can help smart lock companies stand out in the competitive market competition and get out of the development pain.
According to industry insiders, the advantage of smart locks is that they do not need to carry keys and convenience. The big brand smart locks are supplemented by other security measures, so consumers who value these conveniences need not worry too much. Internet security experts said that the security of locks is relative, smart locks and traditional mechanical locks can be cracked, as long as there is enough technology, it is not difficult to open the door. The main advantage of the new fingerprint password smart lock is that it is convenient for people. It can be unlocked with fingerprints and passwords without carrying a key. Convenience is their greatest advantage. On the one hand, the fingerprint of the person can be easily copied, and the fingerprint film can be used for cracking; on the other hand, the password lock is generally a fixed password of 4 to 7 digits, and there are also various ways to obtain the password; and the small black box crack lock is also a A way to crack smart locks.
