Biometric technology is doing more than opening your iPhone. In fact, the process of digitally identifying individuals from physical characteristics like fingerprints is opening up whole new areas of innovation.
Earlier this month, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) announced that it would start testing biometric recognition software to process air passengers faster. Meanwhile, the FBI will soon add iris recognition to the list of ways it can quickly identify a person for other law enforcement agencies.
But how does that impact you in your average daily life? Well, how would you like to ditch the keyring and start getting into your home or storage space with just your fingerprint? The Tokk Fingerprint Lock is now making your dumb old padlock smart…and it's pretty cool.
Using biometric authentication technology, the Tokk is programmed with up to 10 different fingerprints so that only the predetermined authorized few can get quick access to all of your most precious valuables.
IP65 waterproof, dustproof, and weatherproof, the Tokk can register your fingerprint and pop open your lock in less than half a second without a key or easily forgotten combination getting in the way. The Tokk works both inside and out, offering quick and simple security for your locker at the gym or school, to your gate or fence, or to your warehouse, cabinet, or shed.
In case you need protection on a storage space or another location you don't visit often, it's no problem. The Tokk can go into standby mode for up to a year and will unlock up to 2,500 times on a single charge.
The Tokk is crafted from stainless steel mechanisms, making it virtually tamper resistance and ample protection from anyone not sporting the right fingerprint.
Regularly $79, you can save almost 20 percent off the price of a Tokk Fingerprint Waterproof Lock right now, down to just $64.99.
