I’d like to welcome you all back to print fancy. It certainly has been a while, and there is only one person to blame for that – myself. So I’d like to apologise for my extended absence.
Now that’s over lets get onto the meat and potatoes, i.e. my explanation of what it is i’ll be discussing today. Many of you might consider this quite a boring subject, but after a bit of explanation, trust me, you’ll agree that it really isn’t. Padlocks is our subject today, but let me explain, I won’t be discussing just any old padlock, but a new one that is currently in development that will most probably change the world of security.
What makes this padlock different, I hear you ask? Well I’ll tell you now, but quickly let me point out all the drawbacks of your average padlock. This will help explain the benefits of the new one in a little while. Your average, everyday padlock can be used for many things such as locking and keeping a cupboard or toolkit safe, along with bikes and other vehicles. Although many padlocks, even some you can get cheaply are incredibly sturdy and secure, there is one blatant problem with them. They can still be broken into, and when this happens you are none the wiser. There is literally no way of you knowing, unless you are there as it is happening that you are being robbed, or at least someone is attempting to rob you.
This leads to further problems. What if someone does successfully rob you. By the time you’ve figured this out, the criminal is long gone, because you had no idea at the time that this was happening. If this has ever happened to you, then let me tell you that you are in luck. Currently there is a new padlock in development that completely solves this problem. It is a Qlock that has high security measures. It essentially has the ability to let you know exactly when someone is attempting to force your lock open and take your belongings. It uses to gsm to send a message to a mobile phone that you assign the lock to once you have it. The lock can sense when someone is tampering with it, and will send a message to your phone exactly as this is happening.
This is great as it gives you enough time to act, and essentially prevent the robbery. I think its a really cool idea. Unfortunately the lock is still in development, but I will let you know more about in the future, as soon as I learn more.
