Locks for bicycles and the Internet of Things (IoT), the perfect union. In today’s post we will clarify it for you… In recent years, we have seen a boom in Internet of Things (IoT) technology and its integration into a wide range of products. Now, advances in electronic design allow bike locks to be equipped with IoT technology and access to Big Data to provide greater security and peace of mind for bike owners.
Connectivity and IoT-enabled bike locks come with a variety of exciting features.
First, these locks are connected to a mobile app that allows users to lock and unlock their bike remotely. This means that it is no longer necessary to carry a physical key to open and close the lock. With our smartphone it is enough to lock or release the padlock.
In addition to the ease of use, IoT bike locks inform us in real time of the GPS location of our bike, which allows us to keep track of our routes and also allows us to locate them in case of theft.
These locks also inform us of the state of rest or movement of the bicycle, its geographical position in real time and also have the capacity to emit an audible alarm if someone tries to manipulate the lock without authorization, in addition to sending an alert to the phone if they detect movements of unauthorized bicycle.
Another interesting feature of bike locks with IoT is the ability to share access with other users. This is useful for cyclists who share their bike with friends or family. The mobile app allows the owner to grant temporary access to other users and easily revoke it when it is no longer needed.
In conclusion, we can state that smart bike locks equipped with IoT offer greater comfort and safety for cyclists.
The ability to remotely lock and unlock the bike, geolocate it, share access with other users and receive alerts in case of unauthorized movement, are joined by innovative designs that increase security against theft and ease of use.
Without a doubt, these locks are revolutionizing the way we ensure our bicycles are secured. In Electronic Engineering tailored to you, we have experience in designing smart locks with various levels of security and IoT connectivity.
