ERA launches Protect Smart handle

ERA has launched its new ERA Protect Smart universal handle, offering a smart security solution for lift-to-lock multi-point locks, commonly found on PVC-U or composite doors.

The ERA Protect Smart universal handle is a true keyless smart solution offering multiple access methods including fingerprint recognition for up to 50 users, one touch unlock with the ERA Smart Home app, and instant access using the encrypted key card.

For convenient access control, it can also be unlocked remotely via the WiFi Connection Hub and in instances where family friends or tradespeople may need to be granted access, e-keys can be sent directly through the ERA Smart Home app. Homeowners can control, track and revoke access to ensure the highest level of security. Exclusive to the ERA Smart Home app, a Smart Report feature also provides valuable insights into home security activity and the system’s performance.

Additional features include a voice assistant for low battery notifications, set up and operation; notifying users if the door is ‘locked’ or ‘unlocked’. Built-in geolocation technology also allows the users to choose auto-unlock when at their door once they are within the parameters of ‘home’.

From inside the property, users can simply turn the thumbturn and press the lever down to unlock. Locking is just as simple, lifting the lever locks the door and the voice assistant will let you know the door is locked.

The hidden 9V battery back up at the bottom of the external handle adds to the user’s peace of mind. If batteries are depleted a single charge from the 9V battery allows entry via registered fingerprint, key card or app; ideal as a short term measure to allow access for the batteries to be changed.

Designed to offer a high level of data protection, all fingerprint and key card information is encrypted and stored within the handle itself. GDPR and PSTI compliant, the ERA Smart Home app uses two-factor authentication. The UK-based support team can help during setup, answer any questions following installation and general queries when using the handle.

According to ERA, easy installation ensures ‘seamless integration’ into existing manufacturing processes, with a video guide for installation and useful how-to videos for operation. The handle is available in a choice of finishes including matt black, polished chrome, and satin chrome to complement any door.

The ERA Protect Smart universal handle adds to ERA’s range of smart security innovations, including its TouchKey solution, a complete door solution, which brings together a smart handle, cylinder and auto fire multi-point lock for use with new composite and timber doors.

Adam Taylor, product manager for Smart Security at ERA, said: “In addition to PVCu doors, the ERA Protect Smart Universal Handle is also compatible with timber and composite doors and is battery powered with all wiring contained in the handle, so no need for an electrician!”
