Unlike a physical key, a digital door lock employs electric and digital technology to lock and unlock a door. It is operated by alkaline batteries and it can be accessed in a variety of ways – keypads or using code, fingerprint (biometric), Bluetooth, or using radiofrequency through a smart card.

Not only do digital door locks bring convenience to you and your family members, it also saves you from headaches when you lose your key at home or in the office.
Having digital door locks allows a full control of your setting – you can choose when to remove, add or change the access. Having duplicate keys, on the other hand, might get you in trouble as you wouldn’t notice right ahead that someone may pick it up when you accidentally lose it and use it instead to get into your house.

For most brands and models of Digital Locks, you will be notified by its alert. If you hear a low battery warning ring or you see the indicator light blinking in red, it only shows the smart lock is running low in battery life.
Upon registration, your finger may be positioned a bit slanted. So when you place your finger again, it won’t be detected. Please try again with different fingerprint positions.
Another reason is due to genetic differences – the lines in the finger are too thin that may be difficult to be detected. In that case, the person may use a password or an emergency key to unlock the door or gate.
Digital lock installation in Singapore usually costs around $299 to $1679 but it depends on many factors including the type of lock, establishment, and the surface for installation. So if you want to install it on a metal surface, it may have an additional cost.
