Rechargeable padlock with fingerprint technology introduced at CES

January 4, 2017 - 

BenjiLock, a CES 2017 Innovation Awards Honoree in the Smart Home product category, introduced its biometric padlock at CES yesterday.

According to a report by Digital Trends, the rechargeable, stainless-steel device supports up to four distinct fingerprints and saves them in an encrypted chip.

The BenjiLock comes in a range of colors and with a set of physical keys. It is expected to be released in the third quarter of 2017 for $80 USD.

Last month, BenjiLock announced that it has been named a CES 2017 Innovation Awards Honoree in the Smart Home product category. Products entered in this program are judged by a panel of independent industrial designers, independent engineers and members of the trade media to honor outstanding design and engineering in cutting edge consumer electronics products across 28 product categories.

“We’re extremely honored, thrilled and proud to be recognized by the CEA. It has been a great deal of trial and tribulations throughout this journey, so it is a very satisfying moment when BenjiLock was recognized as an honoree of innovation this past month,” commented Robbie Cabral, CEO and Founder of BenjiLock.

The CES Innovation Awards are sponsored by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA)TM, the producer of CES 2017.
