Boucherle Pick: ASSA ABLOY PIN-Code Lock

Old school gets an upgrade with this access control electromechanical product thanks to improving the operational security of manual-operated PIN access with Code Handle’s innovative design. Observing someone while they enter a PIN code is one of the easiest ways to breach access protocols. This product’s design reduces that chance significantly, while offering 4-5-6 PIN entries depending on security level, and with easy one button locking.

While I do like electronic technology, as a consultant I love delivering practical, tactical and cost-effective solutions, especially with less critical internal door or even window openings. Wireless door locking systems are a great tool; however, simple mechanical locks still fill a security need especially if budget dollars are tight. The simplicity of design, installation, cost to implement and maintenance coupled with a more secure, less observable code entry process, makes this product a winner.
