How is the Philips smart lock resistant to moisture and high temperature?

The rainy season not only affects our daily travel but also influences the lifespan of the home appliance due to the moisture environment which causes safety hazards. Smart lock, as an entry-level smart security product, also appeals more attention to whether it could be waterproof and moisture-proof. Thus, this article is to show you whether the Philips smart lock could be waterproof and moisture-proof and how about its high-temperature resistance capability.

Waterproof and moisture-proof performance

As we all know, the PCBA and electronic components are the most vulnerable parts of the smart lock in a moisture environment. It is necessary to handle well the sealing performance among the compartments to prevent short circuits caused by the water. Philips puts extra effort into designing the waterproof and moisture-proof performance of its smart lock, conducting corresponding tests before manufacturing.

The Philips smart lock can operate for 48 hours without issues and continue to function normally after testing in an environment with 93% relative humidity and a temperature of 40°C. Besides, most smart locks adopt an IML wire-drawing process, which prevents the escutcheon surface from peeling and deformation and is beneficial to be waterproof and moisture-proof. Even though we can rely on these performances, we shouldn’t ignore the protection of the lock battery against water and moisture. To effectively avoid corroding the PCBA due to battery leakage, it is advisable to choose a high-quality AA alkaline dried battery.

Besides, it’s worth mentioning that most of the Philips smart lock adopts a double protection design. In addition to the battery cover, there also is an interlayer, which could fix the battery and better protect the battery.

High-temperature resistance capability

People consider the capability of smart locks to withstand high and low temperatures when making a purchase.

Will low temperature and dryness, high temperature and humidity affect the use of smart locks? In fact, like waterproof and moisture-proof performance, the Philips smart door lock has also conducted authoritative testing on its high and low-temperature resistance.

The Philips smart lock can still be used normally even in environments ranging from -25°C to 70°C. However, why is fingerprint recognition still insensitive in winter? This is generally caused by dry and peeling fingers in autumn and winter.

Moreover, Philips smart door lock also employs an indoor rotary knob to deal with some emergency circumstances. For example, when some functions of the smart lock fail to normally use in an extreme environment, we could unlock them with a mechanical key from the outside or by indoor rotary knob from the inside.

To sum up, Philips smart lock has overcome the difficulties caused by temperature and humidity. Having a Philips smart lock, we can enjoy a safer, more convenient, and reliable life.
