Revolutionising the industry with TouchKey

Tyman is revolutionising the expectations and capabilities of keyless entry with the launch of ERA's versatile door security solution, TouchKey.

Suitable for fabrication with composite or timber entrance doors, TouchKey is the only system of its kind to combine five different entry methods into a single door handle, namely access via fingerprints, smart home app, Bluetooth, voice-activated entry or by manual key override.

When used with the ERA Protect smart home hub and app, the door can be unlocked with a single touch locally or remotely. Electronic keys that have timed access can also be assigned to individuals, such as family and friends, via the app to enable temporary controlled access to the property. Voice command can also be utilised via the app to unlock the door on approach, without having to physically use a smartphone. Finally, for those that prefer to turn a key in a lock, TouchKey also contains a hidden manual key override.

TouchKey has been independently tested to BSI’s new Smart Residential Locking Device standard, which was developed in conjunction with Tyman and combines the BSI Internet of Things (IoT) Kitemark with TS 621 for mechanical security with smart locking. This provides reassurance to users that TouchKey has been independently certified and is a trusted smartware product for any home.

Helen Downer, President of Tyman UK & Ireland, explains: “TouchKey provides fabricators with smarter door security and integrates with the ERA Protect smart ecosystem, providing homeowners with a flexible and easy-to-use solution for their security. TouchKey combines our extensive expertise in mechanical hardware with the very latest advances in smart technology to provide a revolutionary system that sets a new standard for keyless entry.”
