Samsung SHS6020 vs New SHS5050

This is our second post for Samsung.
Recently, we recent the demo for the new SHS5050 [bottom Right], this Black stallion really looks like a facelift from the earlier RED DOT design winner SHS6020 [bottom Left]

Click to enlarge

Our first impression of this is like a strip down version of SHS 6020. SHS6020 came with the Premium Aluminum front and SHS5050 is without. We suppose this is constructed using the same platform.
Click to enlarge

Comparing the sizes, we can see the both measurements are very close. with a difference in a few milimeters. Looking that the material of SHS5050, its a black high gloss acrylic which looks very minimalist and stealth. However compared to SHS6020, the Aluminum does give a level of class while highlighting the number pad and card reader.

The new range now has 2 mortice options for both SHS6020 and SHS5050 the earlier 110mm mortice and the new 240mm mortice. This will better replace the current door locks and address the local locks specification in Singapore. Watch the video of the 2 models below.

In the video, we talked about the aesthetic, operational, and display panels difference.
Comparing the features, we found both brochures similar.

However, after we tested both in our office, we found out that SHS 5050 uses a new software which has 2 more functions than SHS6020.

1. One Touch Anti-Theft setup
This feature is found in the newer models like SHS3320 and SHS5230. One Touch Anti-Theft setup is available once door is close and from the outside, a "HOME" icon will be lighted on the keypad. Once tabbed, it will secure the home from outside and any exit from inside the house will trigger off the alarm. This function typically applies when bugler climb through the window and tries to exit from the front door. Also, some home-owners uses this to catch maids from moon-lighting.
Talk to us if you would like to discuss about your security needs @ 6442 4904.

2. Dual-Verification setup option
Like SHS3320 and SHS5230, this is also a new feature on newer software platform. You can now activate double verification via Pin code then Card to increase security. However, we do not recommend home owners to activate this feature as it may cause more inconvenience. Typically, this function is commonly use for commercial users and maybe the study room where there are valuables or confidential documents.

The last a major difference is Price,
SHS6020 RRP $1,080 - Current Promo Price $850.00
SHS5050 RRP $980 - Current Promo Price $788.00
Price in RED are valid from May - June, Price is inclusive of installation and GST.
Both packing comes complete with 2 RFID Key chains, 2 RFiD cards and 2 mechanical Keys.
Order within May 2013 and recieve 2 free RFiD cards worth $30.

In summary, we see this New SHS5050 as a update to the current Samsung SMART door lock collection. By reducing cost on the Aluminum front panel and its ring LED animation, its able to make its selling price more competitive against other digital locks. Also, the new software also gives users more options in managing their security preference.

However, we feel that SHS5050 will not take over the SHS6020 market, as design conscious users may still prefer SHS6020 for its cool design. Personally, i just can't get enough of the TRON-like circular animation of the Red LED.

KLEIS : Sinn by Hannes Wettstein

The second feature of premium handle maker Kleis will feature the late Hannes Wettstein 1958-2008

A little bit about Hannes Wettstein, he's was one of the most innovative and influential designers in Switzerland. His background alone did not follow a standard pattern: born in 1958, Wettstein completed an apprenticeship as a structural engineering draughtsman and then trained himself as a designer and architect. He was fascinated by technological developments as well as art history and architecture; and somewhat alchemical and ingenious, his unique way of developing ideas never disappeared. In his own words, he questioned all norms, social, industrial, cultural and ritual, in order to discover something new. This absoluteness was not an attitude but a methodology. His willingness to always rethink everything determined by design - everyday actions, organization of rooms, the purpose of things - led him to create surprisingly simple solutions that outlasted time. Technology transfer from design-resistant fields, years of scientific work on an idea or a material and a fine sense of brand quality - Hannes Wettstein shaped a world in which he sought to comprehend the essence of things that surrounded him.

Pure, unspectacular, functional design was the stamp of his lights and furniture. Again and again he returned to sleek forms and classic modern lines. These suited his vision of the world and society in that, even before his time, he knew that only self-evident design can be endurable. Hannes Wettstein designed elegant and perfect objects for daily use that maintained their identity and remained timeless even in the changing flow of fashion.
Also in room design he created archetypes: complete and sensitive solutions for specific locations, interior fittings or set designs. The comprehensive way in which he helped designed the world lives on today in the company he founded in 1991, Studio Hannes Wettstein.

Studio Hannes Wettstein had worked with many companies from furniture and lighting manufacturers, to electronics or watches and even hotels & airports. They had work with popular brands like Bosch, Braun, Carl Zeiss, Sony, Tumi, Ventura Watches, Grand Hyatt hotel just to name a few.

" Unique form, unique function,
an indissoluble pairing;
Sinn manifests a modern synthesis
of beauty and efficiency,
the choice of a clear ideology, ergonomics,
and the reduction or promotion
of aesthetics to a dialectical category
of the useful and the rational:
the eye follows the hand,
the hand the body, the body the brain
and the brain the eye. "

Hannes Wettstein, 1991
Our first impression of "Sinn" looks like a pair of horns, and coincidentally reminding us of the devil. Very fierce design indeed.

Handle in die-cast brass.

- polished chrome
- satin chrome
- polished brass


Handle only - SGD 480.00
