Xiaomi has released a smart door lock with fingerprint scanner
Another new product in the smart home ecosystem from Xiaomi is the Automatic Smart Door Lock. The gadget can be installed in a standard entrance door with remote opening and fingerprint identification.
According to Xiaomi, when scanning a fingerprint, the time from putting a finger on the scanner to opening the door in case of successful authentication is only 0.8 seconds. At the same time, the owner does not need to press the handle or turn the key in the lock - the unlocking occurs automatically, and the door opens slightly.
Inside the smart bell, an extensive set of power components is installed, including a linear guide, a planetary gearbox, and a micromotor. The interaction of these elements allows you to automate the door opening procedure. The recognition class of the fingerprint scanner integrated into the lock corresponds to level C, which indicates an accuracy of 98.94% of recognitions.
Also, the new Xiaomi smart lock provides for the installation of up to 50 long-term, periodic and one-time passwords. Unlocking via Bluetooth, NFC, or devices included in the Apple HomeKit smart home system is also provided. For the autonomy of the gadget, two AA format finger elements are responsible, designed for 12 months of uninterrupted operation. Additionally, the lock is equipped with a USB Type-C port, which can be used in an emergency.
The cost of new items is $265.
