Biometric locks harness the uniqueness of human body features to offer convenience and elevated security in residences, businesses and government facilities. These keyless locks primarily use a fingerprint scanning technology, and also use retinal scanning, iris scanning and voiceprint identification.
The benefit of biometric locks is a higher degree of safety and security. Users are pre-registered so that their unique fingerprint is stored within the system. Due to the unique nature of each individuals fingerprint, it is difficult for potential intruders to copy a gain access, compared to the relative ease of picking a traditional lock or copying a stolen key.
Multiple fingerprints or other authenticating features can be registered in a biometric lock, so frequent house guests and regular employees may be placed in the system. In addition, biometric locks offer a smart solution for children who are apt to lose keys.
