The rainy season not only affects our daily travel, but also influences the using lifespan of the home appliance due to the moisture environment which causes safety hazards. Smart lock, as an entry-level smart security product, also appeals more attention to whether it could be waterproof and moisture-proof. Thus, this article is to show you whether the Philips smart lock could be waterproof and moisture-proof and how about its high-temperature resistance capability.
Waterproof and moisture-proof performance
As we all know, the PCBA and electronic components are the most vulnerable parts of the smart lock in a moisture environment. It is necessary to handle well the sealing performance among the compartment for preventing short circuits caused by the water. For Philips smart lock, its waterproof and moisture-proof performance is put more effort upon designing, and corresponding tests would also be conducted before manufacturing.
Under an environment with a relative humidity of 93% and a temperature of 40°C, the Philips smart lock could still work for 48h without being affected, and could also work normally after the test. Besides, most Philips smart locks adopt IML wire-drawing process, which prevents the escutcheon surface from peeling and deformation, and is beneficial to be waterproof and moisture-proof. Even though we can count on these performances, the protection of the lock battery against water and moisture also shouldn’t be ignored. It’s advised to select the high-quality AA alkaline dried battery to effectively avoid corroding the PCBA due to the battery leakage.
Besides, it’s worth mentioning that most of the Philips smart lock adopts double protection design. In addition to the battery cover, there also has an interlayer, which could fix the battery and better protect the battery.
High-temperature resistance capability
For smart locks, the capability of withstanding high and low temperatures is also considered when people buy smart locks.
Will low temperature and dryness, high temperature and humidity affect the use of smart locks? In fact, like waterproof and moisture-proof performance, the Philips smart lock has also conducted authoritative testing on its high and low temperatures resistance.
It shows that the Philips smart lock could still be normally used even in an environment of -25°C to 70°C. But why there still exists fingerprint recognition is insensitive in winter? Generally, it is caused by dry and peeling fingers in autumn and winter.
Moreover, Philips smart lock also employs an indoor rotary knob to deal with some emergency circumstances. For example, when some functions of the smart lock fail to normally use in an extreme environment, we could unlock them by mechanical key from the outsides or by indoor rotary knob from the insides.
To sum up, Philips smart lock has overcome the difficulties caused by temperature and humidity. Having a Philips smart lock, we can enjoy a more safe, convenient and reliable life.
