2006 Product of the Year
Oct 23, 2007 12:13 PM
The 2006 New Product of the Year is a system of wireless locks from SimonsVoss Technologies Inc. that provides users with a full-scale access control system at a reduced cost. The product was chosen as winner by a panel of judges and a tally of reader votes from 20 finalists in the fifth annual contest sponsored by Access Control & Security Systems magazine.
The SV1 line of electronic locks provides users with a product that is both small and simple. The locks can be used in both mortise and cylindrical formats with no additional wiring or door preparation. With an installation time as low as 15 minutes, installing the lock is as simple as installing a conventional lock.
"It looks like a standard handle," says Warren Simonsen, company spokesman. "If you push down on the handle it does not engage the latch. Instead there is a transponder that looks like a key fob for your car."
