This is a often asked question: what is the difference and which one is better - Gateman WF20 or Gateman Z10.
Well, it depends. In general, they are both good locks in the small fingerprint digital locks industry. Gateman makes the best and proven fingerprint locks over the last 8 years. We like to say: buy the one that looks best to you because that may matter more to you (how it looks). But if you are looking for other perspectives, we drew up a table below for further inputs.
Again, they are both good locks. Just go for one that your buying profile dictates ( price range , looks). Sometimes the door won't allow any of these locks to be installed - so check with us first with a few pictures of the door (or a condo name) - before you deep dive into the differences.
In summary, we believe Gateman Z10 delivers unparalleled premium build quality in the small fingerprint rim locks category. This is expected as Gateman is Korea’s #1 digital lock manufacturer and this company is dedicated to digital locks. In the non-premium category, the Gateman WF20 is definitely the one to go for as it shares some common attributes as the Z10.
A small rim digital lock such as the Gateman A20 is a very practical approach for any Singapore condominium with an existing door vertical push and pull bar.
It is easy on the budget.
It is easy on the eyes.
It is easy on the wear and tear.
But that's just our opinion. What do you think?
Hummingbird @ Interlock
Samsung did a great marketing job in creating appeal for their flagship Push n Pull lock. We have to do something special at the Trilinq condominium to fit the lock in between the tight space between the door handle and vertical pull bar.
Is a double door handle (one from the door and one from the lock) a rational approach from an aesthetic and usage perspective? What do you think?
Hummingbird @ Interlock
PS. Do you think this Gateman A20 approach is more practical on the aesthetics and on the budget?
We love this Gateman A20 digital door lock. The Gateman A20 - with it's attention to details - beats Milre, Epic, LogHome and Samsung digital locks hands down.
Even the 9V emergency battery terminal is nicely tucked in, to maintain the slim and elegant facade and to shield it from oxidation.
iRevo Gateman recently updated the Gateman F10 digital lock that has served users very well all over the world. Historically, there was the Gateman F10 ... and then the spin-offs Gateman F10, Gateman F10-Hook, Gateman F50, Gateman F50-Hook, Gateman F50-FD, and the more recent Gateman WF10, and not to mention the Yale 4110!
Today, we see the Gateman WF20, both a physical update and an electronics firmware revision to the family (and what a family lineage!) of Gateman fingerprint rim lock that is easy and practical to use with a very attractive price.
What's new and what's the same for the Gateman WF20?
Gateman WF20 is not a major update and current Gateman WF10 users should be very happy with what they have; the Gateman WF10 is one that has almost everything a normal user will care for and we for one will miss it -- and for that reason we stashed a few in our warehouse for our employees and for those who asked for it. If you are getting a new digital lock and wanted a fingerprint lock, the Gateman WF20 should be the top two in your consideration, with the other being a Gateman Z10.
This may be the most interesting biometric fingerprint lock we have ever seen.
We Wish Everyone a Prosperous Chinese New Year!

Thinking of putting a digital lock on the Singapore metal gates?
We like to advise our customers to re-assess the need to put a digital lock on the metal gate (when you have one already on the main door). In the context of Singapore where security cameras are ubiquitious in both private and public housing and that one cannot lock-pick a digital lock, putting an additional digital lock on the gate may be unnecessary.
That said, if you still like the notion of having two locks for extra security or if you like to leave the door open for the wind to come through, then read on...
We custom-mount Gateman rim locks on metal gates. Referencing the picture below, note:
A broad choice of digital locks (fingerprint or card, pin) and prices for custom mounting on the metal gate can be found on this link on our website.
iRevo, the company that makes the Korea #1 Gateman brand of digital locks claimed as part of their company philosophy that no products are newly introduced into the market without having key differentiators and ensuring consumer value.
Take for instance, the Gateman Z10 fingerprint digital lock that comes with pin code access. The input number pad is the only digital lock in the market that addresses consumer's worry for traces of fingerprints left on the number pad. Gateman has specially manufactured a brushed matt surface that does not attract finger prints.
Note: This feature is also found in the A20 series of iRevo Gateman digital lock.
You know iRevo Gateman has what it takes to survive and be # 1 when it pays attention to small details.
