Smart technology for PVCu doors: ERA launches new ERA Protect Smart Universal Handle

ERA, a leading UK manufacturer of fenestration and home security solutions, has launched its new ERA Protect Smart Universal Handle. It offers a smart security solution for lift-to-lock multi-point locks commonly found on PVCu 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, the ERA Protect Smart Universal Handle can also be unlocked remotely via the WiFi Connection Hub.

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 designed for user convenience include a voice assistant for low battery notifications, set up and operation, and 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’.

Users can simply turn the thumbturn and press the lever down to unlock from inside the property.

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 backup at the bottom of the external handle adds to the user's peace of mind.

If the 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.

Users can be assured that the highest level of data protection is provided. All fingerprint and key card information is encrypted and stored within the handle.

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.

Easy installation ensures seamless integration into existing manufacturing processes.

The handle comes with a comprehensive video guide for installation and useful how-to videos for operation.

It is available in a choice of stylish finishes, including Matte Black, Polished Chrome, and Satin Chrome, to complement any door.

The ERA Protect Smart Universal Handle adds to ERA’s growing range of smart security innovations, including its innovative TouchKey solution, a complete door solution that combines 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:

“The launch of the ERA Protect Smart Universal Handle makes smart security available for doors with a lift-to-lock multi-point lock, allowing door manufacturers to offer the convenience and security of smart tech to an even broader customer base.

“With its robust design and choice of smart access methods, the handle ensures the highest level of performance and security for the end user.

“It reflects ERA’s commitment to evolving its range of smart solutions to meet the market's demands.

“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!”
