Smart security: BSI IoT Kitemark
The Internet of Things (IoT) is a network of connected smart devices, people, and systems, enabling data to be exchanged between devices over the internet to allow everyday objects/tasks to be made more efficient. It includes lots of recognisable smart devices, from mobile phones to fridges, door locks, alarms, and lighting.
Products awarded a BSI IoT Kitemark undergo rigorous and independent assessments to make sure the device both functions and communicates as it should and that it has the appropriate security controls in place. Recognising those devices that are trustworthy, safe, and secure.
Mechanical security with smart locking: TS 621
TS 621:2018 is a technical standard from the Door and Hardware Federation (DHF) to outline certification for residential thief resistant electronic door locking devices. Bringing together many other British Standards (BS), PAS and Technical Standards (TS) together to ensure a robust set of requirements for testing smart locking devices.
To meet the criteria, certified products have to undergo extensive testing including physical durability tests, vulnerability attack testing, and security manipulation testing. All of which ensure that the product is not only mechanically robust but the smart elements work alongside the mechanical locking elements to fully protect your door.
BSI (British Standard Institution) develops testing and training to ensure products and services that consumers purchase meet certain criteria of excellence. The BSI Kitemark is a symbol of trust, signifying that each product allowed to display the mark on the product/packaging, has gone through a series of tests and achieves the highest standards.
For over a century, the symbol has made it easier for consumers to recognise the mark of excellence and as such, make an informed choice. There are several BSI standards, each specific to the product and application. More information on BSI and the individual standards can be found on their website, here we'll take a look at those for smart security devices.
