Another upgrade to Project 46 is a new front door system from KABA. I have had a KABA system for several years, which consisted of a fob about the size of a matchbox, which, if you carried it on you, would automatically open the door once you touch the handle.

However, KABA have now incorporated a chip into the actual front door key, which means I only have to carry the key and touch it to the door handle and the door will open. 

It certainly helps if you have your hands full of shopping and is small enough to just fit into your pocket.

KABA Ltd are based in Lower Moor Way, Tiverton, Devon, EX16 6SS, for further information please visit their website:
