We often talk about smart locks, but they’re typically designed for the smart home. There are other types of smart locks, however, with one firm – aptly named Smart Locks for Yachts – partnering with Trend Marine Products Ltd in an exclusive UK distribution partnership. The two firms are set to exhibit together at METSTRADE 2018, which takes place next week.
Smart Locks for Yachts is best known for its RemoteKey system, which offers a simple, secure solution for high-tech boats. Available in various configurations, the company’s system will be shown off at METSTRADE 2018 on Trend Marine Products’ latest sliding doors.
RemoteKey can be wirelessly fitted to both exterior and interior doors aboard almost any vessel. It can be installed by simply swapping out the old key lock with one of the company’s Euro or Trioving cylinder locking systems – both of which are app-controllable. Those managing the system will also be able to download access logs and lock down certain zones of the vessel.
RemoteKey’s networked keypad feature, to be globally debuted at METSTRADE, allows remote access to change PINs and utilises the secure radio network to unlock doors or can activate a relay to overcome range restrictions. Mounted in its waterproof enclosure, it is ideal for dockside use to extend or retract a yacht’s passerelle.
As part of the exclusive distribution deal, Trend Marine will provide upgrades to customers’ existing doors and also supply tailored smart lock packages to its current and existing OEM clients.
At METSTRADE, visitors will be able to see the new collaboration between Smart Locks for Yachts and Trend Marine Products in action, with live interactive demonstrations from the team on the ground.
Iain Davie, founder and CEO of Smart Locks for Yachts, said, “Having developed our smart marine locking systems to suit all aspects of yacht access control over the past three years, we are looking forward to the next stage of our brand development in an exclusive partnership with Trend Marine.
“It is the perfect fit: Our innovative smart locking systems and the manufacturer of so many of the marine doors we have been fitting them into. Trend Marine is globally renowned for its quality and innovation in design. We are very excited to include our smart marine lock solutions within its catalogue of marine doors.”
