- EKEY HOME FINGERPRINT ACCESS SYSTEM
The EKEY home fingerprint access system would go for anywhere between $752.40 – $936.70 which is quite an expensive purchase in comparison with most of the other Fingerprint Deadbolt Door Locks on this list. But like the old saying goes, “never judge a book by its cover”
For starters, the EKEY Home fingerprint solution is a standalone access solution. This simply implies that all programming, adding and removal of biometric information is executed on the access system itself, (talk about killing weak links).
The EKEY solution might not be the easiest access system to install, especially if you are not a DIY junkie. However, it is the simplest with regards its working principle.
Basically, there are three parts of the system, the outside unit (scanner), the inside unit (controller), along with a power supply. The outside unit is programmed with the biometric information of supposed users, and acts as an identifier when a fingerprint is placed on the scanner. It scans the fingerprint and compares the results with the registered fingerprints in its database. If a match is found, the controller switches the relay to either of two positions, either on or off, and the door opens. The power supply as the name implies is obviously there for the supply of power.
The degradation of the EKEY access solution into different parts also guarantees longevity of product use seeing that when the power supply fails, there is no need to change the entire system, like-wise the controller. From a technical view point, this also enables easier identification of issues that may arise, not that issues arise.

And to add icing on a sweet cake, you can install this state of the art solution all by yourself, if you are into that kind of thing.
