Physical and information security is a growing concern in the connected world. Smart locks are one piece of the puzzle in controlling access to both information and physical spaces.
A smart lock can be accessed via NFC contact or contactless technology and use Bluetooth® low energy or ultra-wide band(UWB) to communicate with a user’s smartphone, adding an additional level of security. Interaction with smart locks can range from something as simple as status LEDs to LCD panels with touchscreen control.
NXP provides a variety of connectivity options like low-power NFC, Bluetooth Low Energy or UWB. We also have analog components to complete the design of the smart lock.
