Resumen:
Un científico de una universidad polaca ha desarrollado una cerradura controlada mediante teléfonos móviles. Este diseño se utiliza con el fin de evitar la necesidad de disponer de varias llaves para abrir distintas puertas. La solución permite abrir las cerraduras mediante protocolos GSM, infrarrojos y Bluetooth, dependiendo de las preferencias del usuario. Esta solución puede aplicarse en aquellos casos en los que debe monitorizarse, restringirse o controlarse el acceso, por ejemplo, en bancos, hoteles y gestión remota de propiedades. La universidad busca socios con el fin de establecer acuerdos de licencia y venta de la patente.

Details

Tittle:
A prototype door lock controlled via a mobile phone
Summary:
A scientist from a Polish university developed a door lock controlled by a mobile device. The design is to eliminate the necessity of possessing several keys to open many locks. The solution allows the locks to be operated via Infrared, Bluetooth and GSM protocols, depending on user preferences. The solution can be applied in cases where access must be monitored/ restricted/ controlled e.g. in banks, hotels or for remote property management. Licensing opportunities and sale of patent sought.
Description:
A scientist from a university in Poland developed and patented a door lock controlled via a mobile device. The idea behind the invention was to eliminate the necessity of possessing many keys for several door locks. The solution is perfect for improving security and monitoring/ restricting access to public utility buildings e.g. banks, supermarkets, hotels, etc. It can also facilitate remote management of properties by offering the guest the opportunity of opening the door without collecting the physical key.

The locks can be operated by means of several communication protocols: IrDA (infrared communication), Bluetooth, NFC (Near Field Communication) and even GSM by simply calling the number of the lock or sending a text message. The solution can incorporate all, a few or just one of the above protocols depending on user preferences and technical requirements for mobile devices (e.g. some mobiles may lack IrDA or NFC capacity).

The solution is available for demonstration. The scientist has recently developed a prototype enabling remote operation of door locks by means of IrDA, Bluetooth and GSM protocols.

In 2014, the scientist received an award during an international invention fair in Poland for this solution.

The university is interested in commercialising the solution in the form of a licensing agreement or sale of patent and associated know-how.
Advantages and Innovations:
The scientist is aware that there are similar solutions available commercially on the market. However, none of them is flexible enough to fit all requirements of the end user. Also, the price factor is much in favour of the proposed solution as the scientist designed it to be cost-effective.
Apart from the above, the following are worth-mentioning:
- several communication protocols encapsulated in a small package,
- even the simplest mobile device offers the possibility of operating the door lock (by means of a GSM protocol, simply by calling the number of the lock),
- facilitation of remote property management,
- improvement of security and monitoring access to public utility buildings,
- can be incorporated in smart building systems.
