Sep 2019 Update: The Gateman Z10-IH has recently been updated with new firmware and rear body color (minor). It is also called Gateman G-Swipe .
This is a often asked question: what is the difference and which one is better - Gateman WF20 or Gateman G-Swipe (2019 updated model for Gateman Z10-IH).
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 10 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 G-Swipe 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 Gateman G-Swipe.
Only a few (perhaps no others) make digital locks like iRevo Gateman do. Despite years being the leading digital lock manufacturer in Korea, the company does not sit idle but continue to push the envelop around innovation and build quality.
Case in point: which other manufacturer make monocoque body ie. single piece like leading automobile makers for rigidity and strength against forced intrusion? Look at their internal frame below - a single piece!
