Gateman G-Swipe (Z10-IH) Digital Lock
The Gateman G-Swipe is a 2021 edition of the flagship Z10-IH digital lock from iRevo, a company whose origin is Korea but has since became a core component of the international company called Assa Abloy (which by no coincidence owns the Yale brand which borrows lock designs from ... no price for guessing - none other than iRevo). iRevo Gateman digital lock brand dominates the Korean market by 50% by some estimates, and if one has the time to inspect the locks, the reason is clear: solid build quality and attention to design details.
The Gateman G-Swipe exemplifies those qualities: it is heavy in the hands hinting at less plastic and more metal, a brushed matt touch panel surface that is more finger-stain resistant, large and brightly lit numbers for all age-group to use, a very sensitive fingerprint scanner, a double-action OPEN button to prevent use of objects for unlocking, a double-hook bolt for physical intrusion. Last but not least, a very modern new-age look to top it off.
The small footprint Gateman G-Swipe is ideal for Singapore - be it a HDB door or a condo door with a vertical door handle. All the wear and tear is localised to the existing door handle (and not the digital lock) - and Gateman G-Swipe does faithfully the locking and unlocking and maintain it's pristine look over years.
