Access Control System Helps Wong Enhance Design With Concealed Technology

Internationally-recognized interior designer Julia Wong uses Senseon to unlock a cabinet in her remodeled kitchen.

“The product [Senseon] allows me to integrate design and technology seamlessly.” - Julia Wong, Principal, Julia Wong Designs

World-renowned residential and commercial designer Julia Wong had a challenge: incorporating security into her elegant designs while preserving their simplicity and power.

For her upscale clients and her own home, she turned to Senseon®. The innovative cabinet-level access control provider has helped Wong design solutions to secure doors and drawers of cabinets containing potentially hazardous items without marring the aesthetic with clunky locks.

Wong, the principal of Julia Wong Designs, says her goal is “to create a design that’s not only beautiful but also very, very functional.”

She explains, “I think great design today is integrating design and technology, but I don’t want to see the technology."

Some technology solutions, like unsightly wires or protruding locks, can feel overwhelming and ultimately inhibit the design. Senseon, in contrast, offers a discreet and easy way to safeguard valuable jewelry, art and important documents for clients. It also enables clients to secure hazardous contents.

When remodeling the kitchen of her California home, Wong sought Senseon for a commercial-strength but unobtrusive solution to protect her young daughter from items, such as knives and alcoholic beverages, stored in drawers and cabinets.

Wong says Senseon, which features strong but concealed locks and controlled access, is the perfect solution. “The product allows me to integrate design and technology seamlessly,” she notes. “I can design clean lines while providing my clients the security that they need.”

Her clients love the system, and it has done the trick in her kitchen, where Wong does not have to worry about losing her cabinet keys or her daughter finding them. The designer simply taps her RFID keycard to unlock cabinets. If cabinets are left unlocked, an auto-relock feature helps ensure her daughter’s safety.

Wong says she plans to collaborate with Senseon on future residential and retail projects. “True design goes beyond style, and Senseon really helps me, both on the security and the functionality side, to achieve what I’m looking for,” she says.

“Julia Wong’s experience with Senseon illustrates how our solutions enable interior designers, and their clients, to bridge the gap between security and aesthetics,” says Sid Kalantar, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Senseon. “We’re delighted that this esteemed designer has selected Senseon to advance her inventive concepts. She is an ideal partner in that she shares our commitment to innovation, robust access control, and technology that complements style.”
