In the modern era of personal intelligence, smart locks have been becoming increasingly important as the successor to traditional locks. Modern science and technology pushes the development of the intelligent age, changing human life and consumption habits. With the emergence of new products, there will be many new developments in the smart lock market.
Today's modern enterprise has an extremely complex digital infrastructure comprised of both traditional and modern assets - from workstations and on-premises servers to building security systems and smart devices. This level of complexity has made it increasingly difficult for security teams to establish secure networks in dynamic enterprise environments.

By integrating all Yale Real Living Locks (equipped with a Yale Z-Wave Plus Smart Module) and August Smart Lock Pro locks with Ring Alarm, customers will be able to disarm their Ring Alarm security system by unlocking their lock. Alternatively, customers will have the ability to have their Ring Alarm system armed by locking their Yale (and soon, August) lock.
"With so many varying products within the smart home, it's absolutely critical that they speak to one another to provide consumers with a simplified and cohesive experience," said Jason Williams, President of Yale's Residential Group. "Through this integration with Ring, Yale and August customers will be able to benefit from a fully connected access system where our smart locks will be in sync with the other products keeping their home safe and secure."
Companies that want to protect critical information, productivity and safety in connected operations require products that are developed with security in mind. Rockwell Automation makes security a priority in product development with its security development lifecycle (SDL) approach, which is now certified to meet the IEC 62443-4-1 security standard.
MSA Security, in partnership with 360Training.com, will be offering Customized Online X-ray Screener Training, a course available from mid-November, 2018.
