Keep your home protected with WELOCK Touch 43 fingerprint smart door lock


Over the years, we’ve been seeing an increase in popularity in smart homes and it’s not hard to see why. The ability to control your home using your voice or your phone is very appealing, especially since it used to be the stuff of fiction we would only see in sci-fi TV shows and movies.

Now, replacing all your home gadgets with smart gadgets can be expensive, and you’re also not sure if this is the right move for you, but a good place to start could be something as simple as your door lock, and the WELOCK fingerprint door lock might be something worth checking out.

Biometric security

One of the problems with more traditional house door locks is that they rely on a physical key. These keys are easily cloned which means that someone could make a copy of your key and use it to enter your home.

With the WELOCK fingerprint door lock system, it uses biometric security, namely your fingerprints, to authenticate yourself and to unlock your door. Seeing as fingerprints are highly unique and have been the standard when it comes to mobile security, you can rest assured that no one but you will be able to unlock the door.

Another advantage of this system is that it can store up to 100 fingerprints (3 of them with admin function) at once. Obviously, we don’t have 100 fingers and thumbs, but the idea is that if you have friends or family members that do come over often enough, or if you’re going outstation and want someone to come drop by to water your plants or feed your pets, you can store their fingerprints in the system so that they can let themselves in without having to give them a physical key, which can easily be lost.

WELOCK claims that its system can detect fingerprints and process them in just 0.3 seconds, which for the most part is almost instantaneous so there is no waiting around. Also, the fingerprints stored in its system are encrypted and are also kept locally, which means that no data is being stored in the cloud where a hacker might be able retrieve your fingerprint data remotely.

In addition to supporting fingerprints, the WELOCK door lock system can also support RFID cards. Up to 20 cards can be paired at once, so if for whatever reason your fingerprints cannot be read and stored in the system, you can always rely on the RFID card as an alternative.

Seeing as how RFID cards can be easily programmed, you can make cards that authorize access and remove them later when they are no longer needed. Once again, this is an advantage over physical keys where short of changing your locks, once a key is made they’ll always work with the corresponding lock in question.

Easy installation

With some smart door locks, the problem with them isn’t so much its features, but its installation. Some of them are slightly more complicated setups that will require users to call a locksmith to install it on their behalf. Depending on where you stay and how much the locksmith charges, this could end up being an additional cost that could dissuade users to change their locks.

But with WELOCK fingerprint door lock, the company says that all users really need is a screwdriver to complete the installation. The company will provide users with a manual and also an instructional video on how to install the lock themselves. Also, since the lock runs on batteries, it means that users will not require any hard wiring, so if you know how to operate a screwdriver, then you’re pretty much all set.

Weather resistant

Since locks to your home are usually placed on the outside, it means that your locks are subject to the elements, such as rain, snow, and dust. With more traditional door locks, this isn’t really an issue to be concerned with, but as the WELOCK fingerprint door lock uses electronics, you might be concerned about the weather damaging it.

In this case, you actually don’t. The WELOCK door lock features IP65 protection which means that it is both water and dust resistant up to a certain degree. This will give users more options and flexibility when it comes to choosing where they want to install the lock, such as at their front door, or use it to lock their garden shed, backyard door, and more.

Long-lasting battery

Like we mentioned earlier, the WELOCK smart lock fingerprint door lock runs on batteries which helps with the ease of installation, but at the same time, we know that this in turn might be cause for concern. After all, how many people actually worry about their door locks running out of battery, right?

The good news is that the WELOCK system features the use of 3 x AAA 1.5 V batteries. These batteries can be easily found in any hardware store (or supermarket), meaning that you can keep them on hand or buy them if the batteries run out. Also, the batteries are rated to last up to a year, which means that you’ll only need to change it out once a year and forget about it.

The door lock will also remind users when the batteries hit 20%, so you will have ample time to replace them before they are dead. There is also a USB backup system to help you, you can use the USB Charger with the WELOCK APP to help you unlock the door.
