PROUD SPONSOR OF DOORS & WINDOWS DOORS&WINDOWS THE PERFECT COMPOSITE DOORS emulating a 30kg shoulder barge onto doors; some products undergo up to 200,000 cycles of testing before being taken to the next stage. The lab also includes UKAS-standard rigs so that primary tests can all be completed in- house before sending products to the official body to save valuable time and money in the development stages of production. HOME SMART HOME Leaving the factory floor – and the present day – behind, Yale then offered a window into the future with its ‘Smart Living Room 2.0’. Purpose-built to display and demonstrate the Smart Living range in-situ, David Herbert, Business Development Director for Yale Smart Living, and Josh Waites, Smart Locks Product Manager invite us in, through the smart door; complete with Yale Conexis L1 Smart Door Lock that not only allows virtual keys to be sent out to friends and family, but also time slots to be set so that people can only get access to the house during certain times. This is after all, the system that aims to provide “homeowners total control of who can access their home and provides ultimate peace of mind knowing your loved ones are home safely.” Inside the house, the ‘hub’ has potential to control lights (Philips Hue), thermostat, alarm system, 360-degree surveillance cameras, and more, all from the palm of your hand. While many are still dubious of Smart Locks and keyless technology – with David and Josh keen to point out that Yale are providing a modest (and very British) version of what the technology is capable of – it’s hard to argue that the ability to be able check the security of your home remotely is not an appealing one. It may be harder to get out of the habit of continuously patting yourself down for you house keys though. » » PROFILE 22’S OPTIMA AND Frontier offer the perfect composite door solution.
