With 39 years of experience, a 68-year-old locksmith, Wu Kun-hao, opened a century-old safe in 50 minutes after several failed attempts over 3 days by a Japanese safecracker, according to the Taipei Times.

Allegion says that its latest version of the Keri Systems' software now supports Schlage locks in no-tour mode. No-tour mode allows for the altering of access to a lock without having to visit it.
The supported locks, which include Schlage Control, NDE and LE, are said to be well-suited for multifamily property managers looking to retrofit their existing properties with electronic access control on individual apartment spaces.
Allegion says this provides more security, eliminates unnecessary expenses around managing traditional keys and offers an enhanced tenant experience with ID card or phone access. It also makes it an option to consider for common areas within the building such as meeting rooms, recreational areas and laundry rooms.
