Technology has permeated nearly every area of our lives and our homes are no exception.
2007 brought us the smart phone, and now 10 years later, consumers are taking advantage of the convenience of a smart home. According to Smart Home USA a smart home is the term commonly used to define a “residence that has appliances, lighting, heating, air conditioning, TVs, computers, entertainment audio & video systems, security, and camera systems that are capable of communicating with one another and can be controlled remotely by a time schedule, from any room in the home, as well as remotely from any location in the world by phone or internet.” With all of these advancements in home technology, SiTECH has been busy designing silicone keypads to bring usable technology into the modern home.
Having a keypad on your front door is a simple switch that makes a big difference. The simplicity of punching in a four-digit code rather than fumbling around with keys is a real time saver. Furthermore, you’ll never have to worry about losing keys or getting locked out again. You can also change pass codes easily and let friends and family in the house without being there in person. Behind this simple innovation is a durable silicone keypad. Since these keypads are often used on the outside of the home, they need to withstand the elements and work when you need them the most.
Home security systems are more popular than ever before. With the simple push of a button, homeowners can rest assured that their house is protected from fire, burglary, gas leaks and so much more. In order to arm, disarm, and change settings for these security systems, most manufactures are using silicone to create a user-friendly keypad. The customizable options available for keypad construction make it an ideal fit for home security systems which often need key coloring and backlit keys to create a user-friendly experience.
