When you’re out for a run, wearing an outfit without pockets, or just feel like “traveling light”, the last thing you want to do is take your house keys with you.
Thanks to advances in home security technology, now you don’t have to.
It may sound like science fiction, but there are several security companies selling door locks that recognizes fingerprint as a “key”. Powered by simple batteries, biometric locks run can be programmed to remember up to 30 different fingerprint types.
And, for as little as $250 each, fingerprint entry door systems can be a worthwhile investment for the safety-conscious homeowner.
Fingerprint door locks are likely to score high among homeowners who like to impress guests with technology, but there are practical reasons for having a keyless lock, too, including children, forgetfulness, and the freedom to not carry keys everywhere you go.
If it's something you've long wanted, you don't have to wait any longer.
