BQT Solutions has recently launched a Bluetooth-enabled version of its YG80 industrial lock.

Equipped with built-in Bluetooth technology, the YG80B can be installed within a facility, ensuring it remains out of reach from potential attacks whilst still allowing for convenient and secure operation directly from a mobile phone, the company reports.

Engineered with a focus on weather resistance, the YG80B features a UV- resistant lid and a built-in heater, making it well-suited for challenging environmental conditions.

The YG80B Bluetooth enabled lock secures everything from prisons, cargo containers, gates, roller doors and locations where security and convenience is of the highest importance. 

“The new YG80B takes motor-driven, high strength locking to the next level,” said Matthew Nye-Hingston, Chief Operating Officer, BQT.

“It not only offers users ultimate control over their security from a mobile phone but includes additional features including user-selected fail-safe / fail secure operation, multiple attempts to lock / unlock and the option to hardwire the YG80B into the facility’s physical access control system.

“We are proud to bring to the market a truly unique lock where security and convenience don’t need to be compromised.”

What are the new benefits?

The YG80B’s strength lies in its 18mm stainless steel bolt pin and reinforced strike.

Exceeding the highest UL 1034 strength standards and with concealed mounting bolts to eliminate attack points, the YG80B is the optimal choice for securing a facility and precious assets.

Unlike other locks which are commonly installed on the exterior and vulnerable to attacks, the YG80B – with its integrated Bluetooth technology – can be strategically placed within a facility.

The versatile YG80B lock is reliable inside and out, in the 40°C heat and in freezing snowstorms.

It holds an IP67 rating and is reliable in all environments as it comes with and onboard heater.

Offering feedback to the control panel of the door and bolt positions is a standard feature of the YG80B.

Monitoring the position of the door and whether the bolt pin is extended or retracted provides vital information needed to ensure a site is safe and secure.

In addition, a tamper monitor will provide alerts of lock attacks.
