History of Bluetooth
Interestingly the name Bluetooth comes from a Danish 10th century King Harald Bluetooth. Who according to history united dissonant Danish tribes into a single nation, the link being that Bluetooth unites communication protocols into one universal standard.
As noted before Bluetooth is a wireless technology and was invented by Ericsson Mobile in Lund, Sweden by Johann Ullman. The original purpose was to develop wireless headsets, ironically as I sit here writing this I am listening to my favourite music via a Bluetooth headset!
What is Bluetooth and how can Smart locks secure your home
The master Bluetooth device can communicate with a maximum of 7 devices (slaves) in a network using Bluetooth technology. Smart locks are driven by an electromechanical lock which locks and unlocks a door when an instruction is received from an authorised device. The device in this case is a smart phone acting as the master, using a wireless Bluetooth protocol sends a message to the Smart lock (slave). Smart locks act the same way as a traditional lock, both need a lock and key in the case of a Smart lock the key is not a physical key but your smart phone which via wireless authentication will automatically activate the unlocking mechanism. Obviously sum of the advantages include;
- ability to receive notification when someone accesses the lock
- audit trail of who has access the lock and what date and time
- option of short-term/one-off access e.g. family member who turns up unexpected
