After 3 years and $1.7M in R&D, the cellular phone-recognizing door lock Anykey that Euro Electronics has developed is the system which is unlocked automatically by placing a cellular phone SIM card loaded in front of the door lock. Smart card(IC Chip loaded) and cellular phone (SIM card loaded) are the "keys" for Anykey. After a simple installation and registration, the cards can be used to open any equipped door. If the cards or cellular phone registered is lost, the registered ID can quickly be changed to prevent unauthorized use. Furthermore, there are 3 types of smart card as key of Anykey- Credit card-sized, half-sized of credit card and sticker type. Basically in using Anykey, door is locked automatically when door is closed and if outsider tries to open door by force, alarm will ring. Also it is very easy to enter and exit by one motion with push & pull type handle. The push & pull type handle is patented and different from conventional type which you need two motions -- rotating handle and pulling/pushing handle for entrance and exit.
