With the advent of the era of smart home, smart home products begin to replace traditional home devices, and smart door locks are one of them. The door can be opened without a key. The traditional key can be replaced by a mobile phone. The keys are in the mobile phone. Intelligent door locks can indeed bring great convenience to people's lives. However, with the increasing number of intelligent door locks on the market, in order to catch more consumers, the manufacturers of intelligent door locks are vigorously promoting their products, at the same time, they inevitably have some "exaggerated" elements, which are very likely to cause great misunderstandings to consumers. In view of the current intelligent door lock Market products, consumers should be clear when purchasing products, in order to avoid entering a misunderstanding.
Myth 1: Intelligent lock such as fingerprint lock, iris and face recognition are more anti-theft.
The intelligent lock of biometrics has its technological advancement, but nowadays, with more and more advanced science and technology, its advancement is being challenged more and more. The reproduction technology of biometrics, such as fingerprints, is becoming simpler and simpler. The theft-proof using biometrics technology is nothing. That is to say, the tangible encryption and decryption technology urgently needs the support of new advanced technology, and its security is unreliable before the application of new technology. In addition, the structure of most traditional intelligent locks, such as fingerprint locks, also has serious security risks. Physical structures do not have the ability to prevent damage and open, and the spare mechanical locks have become a serious security risk. Of course, there are not many cases of fingerprint locks being stolen at present, but anti-theft locks are in case of theft. Although the chance of being stolen is very small, in case of emergence, the spiritual and material losses caused can not be repaired.
Myth 2: The higher the level of mechanical lock, the more anti-theft.
Because of the serious misleading business, consumers lack scientific knowledge about the safety of mechanical anti-theft lock core, and assume that the higher the security level is, the more burglary is. In fact, the level of theft prevention is only a reflection of the level of security, because this is directly related to the scientificity of our testing standards, of course, consumers do not understand.
The two important indexes of anti-theft locks currently defined in China are: first, the opening time of anti technology; and second, the time to prevent destructive opening. These two indicators are no problem in itself, but the problem lies in the tools of detection. Our country is still using manual detection methods to test, and human factors also affect the fairness of the results. In fact, the anti-theft performance of the mechanical lock depends on: first, the material of the locking nail, the tougher the material, the better. Secondly, the structure of the lock core, each structure has its advantages and disadvantages, the combination of several different structures is far better than a single structure. Thirdly, the higher the accuracy of processing, the better the performance.
Many businesses have been emphasizing their rich functions, so that consumers think that the more functions the smart locks will be better. The quality of an intelligent lock depends on its key function and the user's actual experience. With more functions, more product failures, unstable performance and high uncertainty, the user's experience will not work. Redundant and useless function design, in addition to the sales gimmick, in the final use is just a consumption of user patience.
Myth 4: The easier it is to dock with other intelligent terminals, the better.
To some extent, the connection between smart home and other terminals is one of the bases for smart home. The concept of the Internet of Things is also established here. However, all hardware connections should have an absolute standard: security. Taking mobile phones as an example, the smart home connected to mobile phones needs to rely on smart terminals such as mobile phones to achieve the purpose of control. However, many smart homes may be accessed by other unauthorized terminals without proper security considerations. This is especially terrible for smart door locks. If this happens, the smart door lock is not even equal to an ordinary mechanical lock.
