- WHAT IS THIS? A programmable lock that opens with private codes, fingerprint ID, and Bluetooth
- WHO WOULD THIS BE PERFECT FOR? Anyone running an Airbnb or vacation rental, or anyone who loses their keys often
- WHY SHOULD YOU BUY THIS? Keyless convenience and the security of fingerprint ID
In 2019, keys are kind of a drag. Our cars have already ditched them, so why haven’t our houses? If you’re someone who constantly loses their keys, or someone running a rental property where people often go in and out, the Ultraloq UL3 Bluetooth Fingerprint and Touchscreen Smart Lock is here to make your life easier.
The convenience of keyless entry meets the security of fingerprint ID in this lock from the future. Ultraloq UL3 is programmable, so you can set up your fingerprint, code, or smartphone to unlock the door. You can even knock four times on your smart phone, while it’s in your pocket, and the door will magically unlock before you. It also features an anti-peep touchscreen that lets you define 4-8 digit entrance codes without worrying about strangers seeing, a recessed thumbprint scanner, and even a keyhole in case you want to keep an old-fashioned backup.
The lock will last you about 8,000 accesses before the batteries will need to be replaced, but luckily, all you’ll need it 3 AA’s. Oh, and it tracks who has access to the lock, how they access it, and when, making it perfect for vacation rentals like Airbnb.
Usually, this Ultraloq UL3 Bluetooth Fingerprint and Touchscreen Smart Lock would cost you $320, but right now you can pick it up from shopdealboss.com for just $169.
