Samsung SNS Shows Smart Locks At 2013 ISC West: Who Needs Keys Anymore?
Samsung attended the 2013 ISC West security show in Las Vegas this week, where subsidiary Samsung SNS, “a specialized company in network services and solutions,” was showing off its Smart Home Wireless solutions in an exhibit called Always On, Connected Home.
The Samsung SNS Always On, Connected Home booth demonstrated the smart-home technology that Samsung SNS was established to pursue, with a particular focus on the smart door-lock systems that Samsung has been working on.
The smart door locks allow doors to be opened without keys, with several innovative methods of unlocking, including keycard passes that can be attached to keychains or smartphones, touchscreen number pads to enter keycodes, and fingerprint scanners, though some still have “mechanical override key” ability.
While Samsung SNS has had some luck in selling these new locks all over the world, their introduction to the American market in Las Vegas required something more.
“The most noticeable feature of the door lock is that it (has) become more sophisticated by combining both mechanical and electronic elements for American markets,” a press release said. “To meet the oversea consumers’ preference for sturdy, practical door locks, the door locks were designed with a focus on simplicity and strength.”
Samsung SNS has traditionally done more work in business development, particularly in Korea, but its forays into smart home technology have certainly impressed so far.
“This Samsung smart door lock dominated the world’s three leading design awards: iF, reddot design in German and IDEA design in the United States,” the release said.
The Samsung SNS smart locks on display in Las Vegas are also on display on the company website.
