Eufy launches biometric door lock, Blurams pitches facial recognition for home stay convenience
The new eufy Smart Lock Touch is installed on the door to the consumer’s home, and provides four different entry methods through a touch keypad and built-in biometric fingerprint scanner, as well as a traditional key for backup. The product performs fingerprint recognition in 0.3 seconds, is IP65 waterproof and runs on a battery for a full year. Data is secured with AES 128 encryption and a built-in security chip. The smart lock is also reported to be BHMA certified and covered for up to 250,000 uses.
The device is expected to be available for sale in stores and online next month, and retails for a suggested $179.99. Redmond Pie notes that it is not clear at this time whether the eufy Smart Lock Touch supports the popular smart home platforms from America’s tech giants.
For those concerned about maintaining physical distancing from delivery people, Blurams is pitching its new outdoor camera with facial recognition as an effective smart home tool.
The Blurams Outdoor Pro Camera was launched late last year, with facial recognition of up to 16 people, two-way audio communication, remote stranger detection alerts and a built-in siren and strobe light. The camera features a 129-degree field of view of 1080-pixel full HD and starlight night vision.
The company says it can make extended home stays more convenient, and help business owners protect unguarded workplaces.
Blurams also launched a facial recognition doorbell at CES 2020 in January.
