With the Revolution, security professionals no longer have to worry about lost keys or bulky push-button locks housed in unattractive boxes.
Salem, VA (PRWEB) August 3, 2009
Arrow Lock is introducing a touchscreen door lock that combines the function of a cylindrical lockset with a new design appealing to the iPhone generation.
Arrow's new Revolution (http://www.ArrowRevolution.com) features a touchscreen above the door handle that's similar to those found on the latest mobile phones. Instead of turning a key to gain entry, people touch the screen to enter a passcode, unlocking the door.
The Revolution brings digital technology to markets where door locks haven't changed much over the years - in high-traffic areas with multiple users in such settings as hospitals, offices, apartments, hotels, churches, stores and schools. Arrow also is seeing interest from consumers who crave the latest gadgets.
"This dramatic makeover of the traditional lock-and-key set with today's technology provides a much-needed update to a product that's often taken for granted," says Tom Harris, Arrow general manager. "With the Revolution, security professionals no longer have to worry about lost keys or bulky push-button locks housed in unattractive boxes."
Arrow's latest innovation, designed and marketed in the United States, is quick to install and as easy to use as dialing a phone number. It can be used indoors or outdoors and can fit into existing key systems. There's even a security override in case of emergencies and a battery back-up to ensure it works every time.
The Revolution can be programmed via a voice prompt that guides users through the process to set up codes and authorized users. And yes, the lock can still be operated the old-fashioned way - with a key.
The new lock was tested at numerous locations, including New Century Community Church in Roanoke, Va. Jared Walters, pastor to students, says the 12 people authorized to enter a secure area learned how to use the lock in minutes.
"The first reaction was that people were excited about it," Walters says. "It's pretty neat because no one has seen this touchscreen technology. But it didn't take long to learn how to use, especially since today's cell phones use the same premise."
