Easy-to-install Bluetooth-based keypad offers ideal access solution for rental properties and recurrent visitors and service providers
AARHUS, DENMARK – January 3, 2018
Danalock, a leading provider of smart lock solutions for smart homes and businesses, will debut its new Danapad keypad at CES 2018. Danapad is an easy-to-install, wireless, smart access keypad that enables homeowners and businesses to manage secure access for delivery, contractors, cleaning and pet services, and those without a smartphone or access to the smart home system such as children, elderly residents or visitors, and guests. With its Bluetooth interface to the Danalock V3 smart lock, Danapad gives homeowners, rental properties, and owners of hospitality and other businesses peace of mind with the industry’s most secure access solution.
Danapad— Sleek Danish Design with Easy Install, Easy Use
Danapad’s elegant Danish design and small footprint (35mm x 82mm) provides an out-of-the-box, easy-to-install and secure access solution that requires no permanent alteration to the door or entry area. Designed for all weather extremes, Danapad works well in hot and cold climates and can withstand the effects of salt, fog, and rain.
Danapad, like Danalock V3, is managed via the Danalock App, a cloud-based access control application that enables the user to provide one of three levels of access to guests: permanent, recurring, or temporary/one-time. Visitors no longer need to bring a key or a phone. They simply enter their four- to 10-digit pin codes into the keypad, which connects to the smart lock via Bluetooth to unlock the door. In instances where many different guests operate the lock, such as on a rental property or a locked-off common area, guests do not need to own a compatible device. When someone enters or exits, the Danalock App messages the homeowner/business manager, reassuring parents that their children are home from school or building managers that the contractor has arrived on time.
“The smart lock is the ultimate ‘enabler’ in smart homes and buildings, offering a host of services, such as temperature control, lighting, etc., on entry,” said Henning Overgaard, co-founder of the Danalock smart lock. “Thanks to its superior functionality, security, and worldwide install base, Danalock V3 is being adopted by telcos, IoT service providers, and e-commerce retailers, as well as logistics and alarm companies that are integrating Danalock and Danapad into their solutions.”
Boasting best-in-class functionality, the Danalock V3 smart lock offers unmatched security, ease of installation, and global compatibility in response to customer feedback:
• Highest security—Danalock is the only smart lock on the market with AES-256 security encryption, the baseline requirement of the Apple HomeKit. Unlike other smart lock solutions that store access keys in memory, Danalock uses a Trusted Platform Module (TPM) chip that cannot be hacked to store the encrypted keys.
• Smallest size—Aesthetically pleasing with a 60mm diameter and 49mm height
• Door status—Customers are notified of entry and exit and can check status of their lock (open or locked) at any time.
• Fastest operation (4.5 times more speed)—Critical to European and Asian markets.
• More torque—Almost 2x stronger than those of competitors.
• Global compatibility with all doors and any type of lock—Danalock includes country-specific adapters to ensure it installs within 10 minutes out-of-the-box in all countries.
Overgaard continued, “Big companies with worldwide locations want one partner who can supply a smart lock that is compatible with all of their buildings. Our Danalock family of products works with any door throughout the world while also providing the highest level of security.”
Danalock V3 and Danapad are currently available with Bluetooth (BLE 4.0) support. Communications support for Z-Wave, Zigbee, Harmony, NEST, Thread, and Wi-Fi will be added in the second half of 2018 to ensure maximum flexibility and complete interoperability with Internet and home automation systems.
