Ola Fingerprint Smart Lock: Bluetooth & Nail

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  June 9, 2015


Door locks that use Bluetooth or fingerprints have been around for years, but the makers of Ola appear to have combined both functions in one easy-to-install door lock.

Similar to recent smart locks such as Lockitron, instead of using keys you unlock Ola over Bluetooth using your mobile device. You can also grant temporary access to other people using its mobile app. But unlike those smart locks, you can also register your fingerprint on Ola’s app. You can then place your finger on the lock’s built-in scanner to open Ola even if you don’t have your phone with you.

If you’re concerned that someone might swipe your prints, Ola’s inventors claim that fake fingerprints won’t work on their lock: “Our sensor utilizes a radio frequency signal to scan the pattern under the surface of the skin. A fake fingerprint has no pattern under the surface, so our radio frequency technology saves you from worrying that someone may copy your fingerprints.”

Ola runs on four AA batteries, which should last you up to 2 years of normal use. It also has a built-in emergency set of batteries, and if those run out you can plug in an external power source into its microUSB port.

Pledge at least $159 (USD) on Kickstarter to receive an Ola fingerprint smart lock as a reward.
