Enjoy strong securty with a ruggard all-metal body, hardened steel shackle, IP65 Waterproof rating and Fingerprint operation - that's right, no keys or apps to worry about! :-) Featuring an integrated rechargeable battery for up to 2-years stand-by time and thousands of lock/un-lock operations between charges, this is the padlock to replace just about all 'old-school' keyed padlocks. I personally LOVE the convenience of not having to carry around more keys, and knowing that I can set who will be able to unlock this lock at any time in the future! The Smart Padlock supports up to 10 different fingerprints, with the first fingerprint functioning as the Admin User, who can add new fingerprints or reset the padlock back to factory default.

So what exactly is a 'Fingerprint Padlock' anyway?
Let's start at the begining for those new to this style of smart fingerprint operated padlocks. So we all know the conventional key-operated padlocks. They're a staple of securing items, gates, lockers, display cabinets and all manner of things, but they do require you to always have the right key on hand to unlock them. Furthermore, if you are deploying multiple locks, it's often hard to make sure they are identically keyed (meaning even more keys! Argh!).
Now in the age where we can shrink down tech to suit any application, along come Smart Padlocks - although not all of them are as smart as you'd hope. Whereas many 'Smart Lock' designs involve Bluetooth or WiFi conectivity and an App to control them, I personally am not a fan of this approach. First of all, if the App is not supported, my locks may become inoperable! Secondly, I can't think of many situations where I would need to unlock a padlock that I'm not standing next to, and when I am ready to unlock it, I don't want to pull out my phone, then find and load an App, finally navigating it's interface just to operate the lock!! It's crazy when you think about it!
That's where the design of a Fingerprint operated padlock really shines. You simply scan in your fingerprints, and the prints of anyone else you'd like to operate the lock (that could be work staff, family members, or any other authorised operators you'd like). From there there's no yers, no apps, and as long as you still have your fingers or thumbs, you can operate the lock. It's just straight-forward, sensible and all toegether brilliant! :-)

In it's factory default setting, any finger scanned will unlock the padlock. To start adding fingerprints, simply follow the below steps:
