A pretty smart idea: Entering the office, coming close to the desk and cabinets – and the smartphone unlocks them automatically. Simple to realize: With the « Smart Secure » app from the furniture lock specialist Lehmann based in Minden, Germany. The app is available for both, the iOS and Android operating systems.
Bluetooth low energy technology controls individual locks or lock groups via smartphone. The app allows the individual configuration of locks and user groups with effortless ease. At the same time, it provides options to match the locking and control functions to the level of personal convenience. For example, the Keyless-Go function: the locks automatically unlock when the user approaches them with the Bluetooth device or they automatically lock when the user moves away, while the app runs in background mode.
For this function, the user determines the range. The proximity distance recognition which defines at which distance the lock either locks or unlocks can be individually set for each lock. A greater distance means that all cabinets remain unlocked as long as the user stays within a wide Bluetooth area – which may include even more than one room. If the user sets a shorter distance in the app, the cabinets lock immediately upon the connection is cut.
Depending on the security requirements or the field of operation, the locks can be locked or unlocked consciously via the app. A lock symbol in the app menu visualizes which furniture is locked and which is unlocked, enabling control at all times. Further application configurations and functions are displayed in the menu. Regular app updates ensure that the system is always up to date and that changing customer and application requirements can be accommodated.
The demands of the user on data protection are addressed by Lehmann through a security concept. By deactivating the learn function, the locks can not connect to any other smartphone. Each lock can, in addition, be secured via an individual PIN code, which secures unauthorized changes in the settings.
With the appropriate lock versions, which have long featured among Lehmann’s range of electronic locking systems, « Smart Secure » locks and unlock almost any application simple and smart: small furniture doors as well as large ones with three-point locking mechanism, flaps, drawers, filing cabinets and pedestals. Furniture design itself also benefits from this innovative technology. A concealed installation of the locking mechanisms does not influence the furniture’s design and the front remains “clean”. Lockers and deposit boxes in reception and meeting areas can also be operated simply and conveniently by the user via « Smart Secure ».
