Dallas, TX (PRWEB) June 20, 2008

Sunnect, Inc. ( today announced at the Associated Locksmiths of America (ALOA) 2008 Convention and Expo that it has conducted a bullet test on its new AP501 Advanced Protection digital door lock.

Working with firearms professionals from the Blue Ridge Arsenal and the Tontine Group, both in Chantilly, Virginia, Sunnect conducted a series of shooting tests on the AP501 digital door lock, mounted on a wooden stand, using Glock 22 and 40-caliber Smith & Wesson handguns, most popular with law enforcement agencies.

As shown in the video released on their web site (, the shooting test revealed three extraordinary strengths of the AP501 construction:

1.    The AP501 digital door lock continues to secure the door despite multiple gunshots, never releasing the throwbolt;

2.    The lock does not expose the deadbolt latch control mechanism to the potential intruder, despite the gunshots, in part due to its 2.5-mm thick exterior mounting plate which is secured from inside the door;

3.    The lock’s monitor and control mechanism (key sensor, CPU, motor, etc.) continues to operate despite the gunshots, and the lock successfully retracts the throwbolt when a valid Tag Key is presented.

Extraordinary toughness sets the AP501 apart from the others. More information about how the AP501 has been tested is available on Sunnect’s web site (
