As with any industry, security doors are constantly evolving and improving along with technology. Since we live in an age where it seems like technology is obsolete within weeks of being released, it can be tricky to keep up with the latest designs, styles and trends. When it comes to the safety of you and yours, however, tracking these trends is the best thing you can do. Learn about the latest trends in security doors for 2016 so you can make the best choice for keeping your family, home and/or business safe.
IP Security Access
Security systems that use Ethernet-enabled IP readers are a fast up-and-coming trend in safety and access for home and business. You program your reader, attached to your building’s computer network, with a list of those who are permitted to enter—often as simple as adding names to a list. This list translates to a reader which permits the use of keycards, code pads or keychain fobs to enter the building and tracks who enters and exits and when.
Hand Reader Technology
This sci-fi tech has been around for a while, but it is constantly improving and becoming more reliable. Handprint readers at the door measure the shape and size of a person’s handprint, and even the individual lines on the palm. These are also becoming more popular in addition to, or in lieu of, traditional keys.
Dialing reader tech down to the details, fingerprint readers are another piece of technology straight out of a science fiction film that have been around for some time and are becoming more reliable every year. They are used these days for everything from computers to security doors.
Keystroke dynamic systems are a very cool piece of technology. They appear at the outset to be a traditional keypad system where you enter a code to gain access. They also, however, read press time, speed of typing and other trends to identify the person entering. This means that not only do people have to punch in the right code, but they need to punch it in the right way. It’s an extra level of security in case someone steals a key code.
Trends in Security Doors: Iron Entry
Handcrafted iron security doors are one of the most perennial and constantly growing trends in security doors.

Whether you want something solid for your business or something beautiful and safe for your home, you can’t go wrong with a heavy metal door.
