Ultion SMART has homeowner security at its heart
Brisant Secure has a long track record as a security company, that creates locks and handles which keep people safe. In Brisant's development of Ultion SMART, homeowner security was at the top of the wish list.
Ultion SMART has been developed in collaboration with Salto Systems. Their tried and tested Danalock technology used with Brisant's most secure lock and handle, creates a new customer focussed Smart lock.
Ultion SMART gives the consumer choice. It works on any door that takes a euro-cylinder. It is fitted with the Ultion 3 Star Sold Secure Diamond lock, comes with a £1,000 guarantee and with a real key. Brisant's research showed that homeowners wanted the peace of mind of being able to over-ride any technology with a key.
Ultion SMART can be retro-fitted and with the technology being on the inside of the door, the homeowner has the choice of keeping their original external handle or suiting it with one of Brisant's security designed Sweet handles. The additional benefit of this is that from the outside no one would know the front door was fitted with Smart technology.
Ultion SMART does everything that a homeowner would expect from a Smart lock. It works through an app, but to safeguard the door from being hacked, not through the internet. The app allows the homeowner to lock their door automatically through the app or voice command. It enables the homeowner to set a "geofence" that works through Bluetooth, enabling the door to unlock automatically when the phone gets within range. All features can be switched on or off, dependent on the needs of the homeowner.
Ultion SMART can also work with Amazon Alexa using "If This Then That" allowing the homeowner to lock Ultion Smart simply by saying, "Alexa, lock the door." It also works with Apple Homekit, enabling Siri, iPhone, iPad and the Apple watch. Of course, if desired, the key over-rides all of it.
Then there are lots of extra features that make Ultion SMART the right choice for everyone, not just the lovers of technology amongst us. It is fitted with "twist assist" meaning the lightest touch can open the door from the inside, perfect for people with arthritis or limited mobility. It can come with a wireless keypad allowing people to be given a code to enter, either just one time or on multiple occasions. This is ideal for carers or Air B&B.
It works with batteries and glows red when they need to be changed, as well as telling you on your app. If you forget, you can always use the key, just like you do at the moment.
Brisant-Secure put the security of the homeowner at the centre of all of their developments and Ultion Smart is no exception. To find out more please visit www.brisant-secure.com or follow on Twitter @UltionLock.
