How to Protect the Safety of the City Council?

A city council located in the urban area of Melbourne, Australia installed a traditional mechanical key security system many years ago. After years of development, the number of users continues to grow, and this traditional mechanical key security system has been working hard to cope with it. But precisely because of the ever-increasing number of users, key control has become a costly problem. Because every time a key is lost, the lock needs to be replaced, which adds a lot of unnecessary financial burdens for a while. Therefore, the council is clearly aware that they need a more versatile and cost-effective way to monitor people who enter.

Challenge:

The facility manager said that their building is rented out, which means that the building is a public place. Whenever renting out, they will issue a key to the renter, but under normal circumstances, the tenant will not return the key. This causes unnecessary lock and key update costs. In order to solve this and some other problems, they chose the Vanma smart lock system. Because this can realize the proposal of maximum safety without compromising the ease of use or the structure and aesthetics of the building.

Solution:

  • Blacklist: When the key is lost, a blacklist can be set in the smart lock system so that the lost key does not have any permission to unlock any lock.
  • Flexible Authorization: Each key can be authorized by the software, allowing the key to unlocking which lock, or what period to unlock, convenient for management. The permission is granted only on the employee’s working day, and the lock cannot be opened at other times.
  • Record Lock/Unlock Information: according to the Vanma smart lock management system, the records can be viewed, and the responsibility can be traced back to the specific employee.
  • Stainless steel material: Vanma’s padlocks are made of stainless steel, and the protection rate reaches IP65. This allows the padlock to be used normally in rainy days.

“This system is really amazing! He solved all our problems perfectly. Now we have completely replaced the traditional mechanical keys with modern Vanma smart locks, and their blacklist function is really convenient. Even if the tenant does not return the key, we do not need to change the lock, just set their key as lost, which saves us a lot of money!”
