Smart Locks Comparison
1) Mechanical VS. Motor
Most of the electronic lock is using motor, which means that the deadbolt is driven by a motor. When you unlock the lock, the batteries inside will provide power to the motor, and the motor drive the deadbolt's movement to achieve automatic lock and unlock.
Imagine that when the motor malfunctions, and cannot operate as normal, no matter you are inside or outside home, you have no way to unlock the lock as the motor cannot function, even though you got the key. The only way is to ask locksmith for help.
But mechanical lock is completely different, LOCKLY® smart lock using the mechanical design, preventing the above mentioned situation from happening, and making more safer. Therefore, even in the most extreme cases, all the electronic parts are malfunction, you can still take out the key from your pocket and unlock the lock as normal.
2) Smart Lock Material
For the common electronic locks on the market, generally they are using zinc alloy. There are mainly 4 reasons
i) Compared with stainless steel, it has a lower melting point and it is easier for manufacturing.
ii) The surface of the finished product is smooth and easier for surface finishing
iii) Corrosion resistance
iv) Good mechanical properties at room temperature
However, LOCKLY® smart lock chooses to use stainless steel as the material, just because it is better than zinc alloy.
i) Stainless steel is harder than zinc alloy
ii) The melting point is higher than zinc alloy
iii) The corrosion resistance ability is better than zinc alloy
iv) Stainless steel is more shiny than zinc alloy
3) Safer Lockcase
『There is no a unpickable lock, only the time-consuming difference』
There are 3 levels of lockcase, A-level, B-level, and C-level, A is the lowest and C is the highest grading. Compared to B-level, C-level lockcase takes dozens of times longer to unlock, and it also prevents the thief using a strong twisting tool to burst open.
