Residential locks and security systems

Locks and security systems for individual homes and apartment complexes must offer protection against burglary and theft whilst being convenient and user-friendly.

From entrance security doors using traditional mechanical locks and cylinders to cutting-edge digital door locks and motorized cylinders, security solutions for residential applications should be suited to individual needs for safety, security and convenience. These can also include CCTV and alarm systems.

Main areas where ASSA ABLOY can offer an integrated solution:

Entrance doors - The front door is the first line of defense against unlawful entry. Whether for private homes or an apartment complex, an entrance door – and the door hardware fitted to it – needs to ensure that no unauthorized visitors can enter. Electromechanical locking solutions and digital door locks as well as access control solutions can also be used to provide security for the entrance to private homes and apartment complexes.
Digital door locks - Digital and electromechanical products provide high security and greater convenience. These devices are secure while simplifying locking and unlocking. A digital door lock is a door lock with primary use of a digital code to open the lock. Solutions can include proximity cards, remote control fobs and fingerprints for identification and entry.
Garage doors - As well as housing vehicles, garages typically contain many other valuable possessions such as bikes, power tools and gardening equipment. Garages can be secured using mechanical or electromechanical locks and alarms which are easy to fit and easy to use. For apartment complexes, access control systems using readers and tags allow residents in and intruders out.
Window locks - Adding simple items like window locks gives additional security to private home and is a cost-effective way of improving security. Designed to meet dynamic market requirements, digital as well as mechanical window locking solutions can be customized for any type of window, are easy to install and come in a range of designs to fit discreetly into residential properties.
Integration with alarm systems - Fitting an alarm system adds peace of mind and an additional level of protection to residential properties. Wired and wireless alarms can be fitted to access control systems and locks. The Yale brand offers home alarms in their product portfolio for home security.
Padlocks & travel locks - Ranging from small letterbox locks to high security marine grade locks, padlocks can be used for a wide variety of applications – from keeping children out of the tool box and intruders out of the tool shed. Padlock solutions are available with different strength and corrosion ratings, and can also be suited to travel applications, ensuring that luggage is not tampered with while in transit.
Temporary access authorization - Apartment buildings often have problems with unauthorized people getting in. A front door with a card reader enhances security for the residents and makes it easy for authorized visitors or maintenance staff to get access by punching in a code. The code works at certain scheduled times, such as during office hours, and at other times the door is locked.
