Digital Locks are not that easy for the inexperienced handyman or handywoman to install. Yet, they are a rapidly emerging trend in Australia. With property prices now at record highs, affluent Australians are turning their attention from buying homes to securing them with Digital Lock Installation.
Australian Hardware Journal reports that ‘keyless locks’ (basically digital locks operated by your mobile phone or an electronic code) are now ‘the rage’ among Home Owners and First Home Buyers.
Nick Penny, Marketing Director of ASSA Abloy, a leader in digital and keyless entry locks says in the magazine “Keyless entry products have begun to take off due to awareness. We are all time poor and this is why keyless products have started to take off in Australia in the affluent homeowner segments”.
Due to their ease of use and convenience, Digital Locks are a natural progression of security according to experts in the field such as JMA Hardware’s manager BroedenMapps.
Impossible for thieves to get into – without access to your code or ‘unlocked mobile phone’ – they offer Australians a level of security that they have never seen before.
Though crime in Brisbane has dropped from a high of 12,000 incidents in 2002 to 10,000 incidents in 2018, it is still high.
Of these incidents, 985 were to do with unlawful entry (with violence) of a residential dwelling. 635 incidents related to unlawful entry (without violence).
Brisbane is not as safe as you may have previously thought. Residents do need to secure themselves and digital or keyless entry locks plus well-lit pathways, cameras and registrations with security patrols are the way you can review your security and enhance it.
Generally, by neighbourhood. It isn’t because the neighbourhood is bad that it is targeted, it is because the neighbourhood is poorly secured using traditional rather than digital locks.
Police data continually points out Hot Spots – suburbs that are targeted, then retargeted by thieves for the purposes of car theft or burglary. Such homes are in key need of assessing and overhauling their security measures.
