Two versions have been released. One for regular use, which we will talk about in a moment, and the other for use on bicycles.
The product allows for up to 30 fingerprints to be recorded within and uses upgraded image sensors to improve the security levels therein.
We have been touting biometric security for many years now, but have been reluctant to put complete faith in many fingerprint products for s few reasons.
- Many customers desire to use fingerprint controlled devices outside. If weather and climate conditions are perfect, image sensors built into many fingerprint devices will operate flawlessly, but climate conditions today are far from perfect. In fact, many hardwired or battery powered access control products are severely affected by wet conditions, excessive humidity, wiring infrastructure shortfalls, sunlight, water and operational issues.
- As a consequence of some of the above issues, many fingerprint sensors require to have their sensitivity setting turned down significantly. to enable many users fingerprints to be easily recognized by the device. This directly reduces the perceived security of your product.
As mentioned above, we believe that this particular fingerprint operated padlock could be a sensational solution for retail security. I'm sure you have seen and continue to see retail security devices connected to clothing items and other products in department stores, boutiques, dress shops etc.
Using a fingerprint padlock will mean the ability to efficiently limit access to authorized staff and not have to worry about lost keys or access cards or shared combinations.
Just remember, if you want your product to last and operate effectively, use it indoors.
