Hakuna, Master Lock, Fueb Labs offer locks with fingerprint biometrics to consumer market
Several companies are bringing physical access control products secured with fingerprint biometrics to market, with a tradeshow demonstration and a pair of new product announcements.
Hakuna will demonstrate its fingerprint biometrics-enabled Legacy Lock Box at the CHAMPS Trade Show in Las Vegas, February 25 to 28.
The CBD accessory company was recently acquired by CBD products vendor Sun Kissed Industries.
“We acquired Hakuna largely for its massive potential, award-winning products, and large distribution footprint in the high-growth CBD space. But we are also very interested in fostering growth in Hakuna’s accessory business,” explains Sun Kissed CEO Carl Grant. “Its biometric lock box is an exceptional product that has already garnered strong market traction.”
Grant also calls CHAMPS “unquestionably the world’s leading counterculture business-to-business expo.”
The biometric padlock saves two primary prints and up to eight backups, also includes a directional keypad as an alternative unlocking mechanism. It features zinc casing and a boron alloy shackle with a double locking system covered in a thermoplastic elastomer to protect against weather, and comes with a replaceable battery.
The 4901DLH has a list price of $164.20 from the company website.
The FPC BM-Lite module is integrated with the Armour Smart Lock product to provide seamless and secure authentication, FPC says. The door locks also feature RFID-based access control, and connection to the user’s smartphone through wi-fi.
