The well renowned American security super brand, Master Lock has introduced an all-new weatherproof and attack resistant biometric padlock. Gone are the days for traditional keys as the new biometric padlock allows rapid fingerprint unlocking. It can work really well for Airbnb hosts and families alike.
Master Lock has kept back up options available and does not solely rely on the fingerprint. It has ensured that the padlock can also be accessed using directional keypad entry. The padlock gives users the option to choose whether they want to access it via biometric or directional keypad entry.
The padlock holds the ability to remember ten different fingerprints. As a result, the outdoor biometric padlock can be shared with ten different people allowing you to share it with your trusted ones. The device is extremely easy to set up. There are two primary fingerprints that it saves. Additionally, you can save eight more fingerprints. When setting it up for the first time, you would have to use the directional keypad before biometrics can be set up.
Build and Design
The padlock comes in a zinc casing along with boron alloy shackle and double locking closing system. All of these together guarantee incredible resistance to any form of attack. Additionally, there is a dual ball bearing locking mechanism that makes prying attack an ordeal for the person attacking. The easy-to-grip padlock is covered with a thermoplastic elastomer as added protection against the elements.
The replaceable battery
The padlock comes equipped with a replaceable battery. The battery has a one-year-long life expectancy. It also has a light to alert and indicate the user of low energy levels. Master Lock has designed the padlock with a discreet compartment to jump-start using a nine-vault battery should the energy completely run out.
