Fingerprint Locks

If your quest for future living involves getting rid of those half dozen keys you lug around all day a biometric fingerprint lock might be worth the $150 dollars. Adel's TRINITY-788 stores up to 99 fingerprints which can be register directly on the lock itself. It also features a PIN Code, and mechanical key for futher convienence. If you require extra security Shepherd makes a fingerprint lock with a built-in dead bolt.

Thanks, Len, for your perspective and for finding some of the more unusual smart home technologies. I find it interesting (disturbing?) that the Smart Home industry has been hyped as "the next big thing" for over 50 years but still has not become mainstream, because there's so much potential. And I often ask why. See for a video of the GE-Whirlpool Miracle Kitchen from 1957 and my discussion of why I think this market potential has not been realized. It seems that no company really “gets it” or knows how to deliver the smart home vision — not Whirlpool and not Apple or Microsoft or Google or Philips or BestBuy. Even as new gadgets and technologies get us closer each year (your article shows that), product developers and retailers need a new approach and can surely benefit from reading my critique of this industry.
