Biometric luggage padlock combines BIO-key engineering and IDEX fingerprint sensor
The heavy-duty travel lock, approved by the U.S. Transportation Security Administration for use at all airports and on cruises, is being featured this week at Tax Free World Association’s TFWA World Exhibition and Conference for the duty-free and travel retail industry by BIO-key partner, the Travel Retail Distribution Group.
Users simply place their fingerprint on the fingerprint sensor to open the lock. Up to 20 fingerprints can be enrolled to share access with family members or colleagues.
“We are delighted to be partnered with BIO-key to bring the benefits of biometric innovation to an expanding array of consumer products,” commented IDEX CEO, Dr. Hemant Mardia. “TouchLock TSA significantly enhances security in a user friendly manner, while advancing the application of our fingerprint sensor technology to everyday consumer products.”
Mike DePasquale, BIO-key CEO added, “We have had solid initial interest in our TouchLock TSA solution and knew it was ready for its debut at the largest annual event in the travel retail industry. Our partner the Travel Retail Distribution Group, is doing a fabulous job positioning TouchLock TSA in the global travel retail industry.”
