Jan 5, 2021 Update
This is a often asked question: what is the difference and which one is better - Gateman WF20 or Gateman G-Swipe (2021) 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.
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 a welcomed update mostly in firmware for those looking for more controls in a lock settings. 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.
The private wine cellar at a residence in Leedon Park in Singapore requires more privacy and security to their wine collection. The room is temperature and humidity controlled and the entrance door is a glass aluminium framed swing out casement door.
A Gateman fingerprint digital lock does this job well and security can be hardened to the point only authorised changes can be made by the person owning a special pin. Multiple pins and fingerprints can be created to allow staffs on premises to enter and if needed, access can be logged via a bluetooth application.
For inquiries, please send a few photos of the wine cellar door to Tony @ 9830-7788 on WhatsApp.
