When the smartphone is constantly at your side, it’s only a logical step to use it for security in office, contract or home furniture. Lock specialist Lehmann, who has focused much attention on electronic locking systems since 1994, is showing a Bluetooth application at the interzum 2015 which includes an app that lets you lock and unlock furniture doors. This smart and welcome convenience adapts to the user and creates a work or home environment that « thinks for itself » on the security front.
In conjunction with the associated app, « Smart Secure » turns the iPhone into a key. With the appropriate lock versions, which have long featured among Lehmann’s range of electronic locking systems, « Smart Secure » lets you lock and unlock virtually any application: small furniture doors as well as large ones with three-point locking mechanism, flaps, drawers, card index cabinets and pedestals. Furniture design itself also benefits from this innovative technology.
Via the Lehmann app, Bluetooth low energy technology opens or closes individual locks or lock groups by iPhone. The app lets you configure locks and user groups with effortless ease as well as issue or withdraw locking authorizations. At the same time, the Lehmann app provides options for matching locking and control functions to the type of convenience users want. For instance, individual or all locks can also be operated in the Keyless Go function: when the user approaches the furniture or several furniture elements, the lock or lock groups unlock automatically without having to open the app.
Information on which furniture is locked or unlocked, details on the energy level of locks as well as individually tailored functions can be displayed in the app’s menu. Regular updates of the app make sure that the system’s technology is always up to date.
The convenience factor, increasing individualization in furniture design, smart home and smart office are the key aspects that provided the modern ideas in developing Lehmann’s new product. When ovens and hobs excite consumers in the kitchen with sophisticated electronics and clever gesture-recognition technology, then it’s time for office- and home furniture to pick up on this trend too.
