Many domestic brands put much of their energy into the pre-sales work, creating a brand image, creating a sales network, and promoting products...but they have invested less in after-sales services.

Due to the uneven quality of hardware products, the product life cycle is very different. However, according to the service life rules of the national standard and the European standard, the life cycle of the product is 100,000 times and 200,000 times, and the replacement time is about 15 to 20 years. At present, the domestic consumer's habits of using hardware are "when it's broken, it's changed and the card is repaired." This habit directly brings about the problems of product safety and access difficulties. In fact, hardware will be subject to moisture and salt spray corrosion. In particular, anti-theft lock products will have the need for safety and protection upgrades. We recommend that products be maintained and maintained every 1 to 2 years, and products should be replaced and upgraded in about 8 years. Ensure smooth and safe use.
