‘Electronic Door Lock’ game to launch in 2017
Electronic door locks have a history that dates back decades.
But now, they may finally be getting a second life.
Electronic door lock technology could be in a new category, and it’s a little bit like the game-changing technology of the 1980s, says David Smith, chief executive officer of the International Electric Door Lock Association (IEDLA).
He predicts that this new technology could help keep door locks from getting lost and damaged, and could be an even bigger game-changer than the technology that made door locks popular in the 1980, Smith says.
“Electronic lock technology is one of the most significant developments in electric security since the first electronic locks were introduced in the 1970s,” Smith says in a statement.
“It’s really important to understand how these technologies are evolving, how they work, and why they’re such a great addition to our door locks.”
Electronic locks are designed to be electrically locked to prevent people from getting into your home.
But the locks themselves can be damaged or stolen, so the locks often are not very good at keeping people out.
Electronics like the ones in your home may not be the best solution, but Smith says there’s a solution: more and better doors.
“We’ve made a lot of progress with door locks over the last 10 years, and there are now more than 20 million of them in the world,” he says.
“That’s more than any other security device on the planet.”
Electronics can help keep people from entering your homeElectronic doors could be just as dangerous as doors.
But they may be more secure, Smith adds.
“In my mind, door locks are more like a smart phone,” he explains.
“When someone comes into your house, you have an alarm, you can see who’s in your house and can lock them out, and you can then unlock the door, so you don’t have to deal with a burglar or someone else trying to break in.”
Electrical door locks that are designed with security in mind, like the digital door locks of the ’80s, can be more durable than any door lock on the market.
But it’s still not as easy to break, Smith warns.
“There’s a lot more work to be done to make door locks more robust,” he tells TIME.
Electrical doors could help prevent burglars from getting in your bedroomElectronic sensors are built into door locks to keep thieves from entering a room and stealing your valuable possessions.
But there’s not much research on what exactly happens when thieves do try to break into your room, Smith cautions.
“Most door locks in the United States are designed as a security device,” he said.
“The way they work is they have sensors in them to detect a person entering a bedroom.
If they have an intruder in there, they’ll trigger a door lock, and the sensor will open a sensor that will alert the police, and they’ll then have a little window of opportunity to enter the room.”
So why is door locks becoming so popular in America?
There are two reasons: First, it’s more convenient for people who have access to their homes to get in and out of their homes.
“The big thing that we hear from a lot about people who live in remote areas is that they don’t want to live in a house that’s locked up and they don
