Next Generation
Intelligent Locking.
Over the past decade, billions of people have connected to
the Internet via the computer and more recently, mobile devices.
Today, that communication revolution – the most pervasive
technology event on earth – is extending to objects as well
as people.
Over the past 10 years, TZ’s intelligent, remotely actuated
locking devices have been deployed in aerospace, military and
automotive applications. TZ devices can sense, act, lock and
audit activity based on secure instructions delivered online.
This enables rich data collection and diagnostic abilities.
The ‘Internet of People’ has become the ‘Internet of Things,’
whereby virtually all objects around us can exchange information
and work in synergy to significantly improve the efficiency of our
businesses, the security of our assets and the quality of our lives.
Working together intelligently, a network of TZ SMArt locking
devices can offer a secure environment and provide a complete,
real time view of the state of that protected environment.
TZ is at the forefront of SMArt locking device development
– the enabling technology that makes the convergence of
physical security, sensing and communication a reality.
The ability to track behaviour of people, things and data through
space in real time provides enhanced situational awareness
which will allow the creation of more effective and efficient
operating conditions and workflow practices.
