We always need to set up our pets and household appliances in advance of a long-term business trip or outdoor excursion. To protect the safety of our home, for instance, we must turn off the power to our appliances and shut the window. Even though they have frequently verified that the door has closed, most people still experience anxiety when it comes to the door closing while they travel.
The best digital door locks, such as those from Philips digital lock, improve home security and provide you with the peace of mind you need to take a trip. Smart locks provide an additional degree of security through their dual verification mode. Learn more about it and how it functions by reading about it.
What is dual verification mode?
There are two modes for Philips EasyKey: general and double verification. The double verification mode needs any combination of fingerprints, a PIN number, and a key tag to verify and unlock, in contrast to the general mode, which allows the door to be unlocked upon successful verification by any unlocking method. This mode gives an additional layer of security to the home.
Any combination of a fingerprint and PIN code can be used to verify the unlocking of some Philips digital locks such these models: Philips EasyKey 9100 Wi-Fi Digital Door Lock, Philips EasyKey 9300 Digital Door Lock, and Philips EasyKey 7300 Wi-Fi Digital Door Lock.
How to enable the double verification mode?
The user manual includes simple-to-follow instructions for enabling the dual verification mode at the lock as well as through the Philips EasyKey APP.
Can we unlock the door on the APP under the dual verification mode?
In the dual verification mode, in order to unlock the door, we must validate the fingerprint, PIN code, or key tag on the door lock side. If we activate the dual verification mode, we cannot unlock the door through Bluetooth or the mobile APP. Moreover, the door cannot be unlocked or locked on the Philips EasyKey APP.
The security consequence of this mode is that once dual verification is enabled, we are unable to let friends and family use the 30-minute valid temporary PIN number to enter the door.
Other Security Features for Philips EasyKey locks
When you hold the push-pull handle, your finger will naturally land on the fingerprint sensor because it is built into the handle.
After successfully verifying your fingerprint, you can just reach out and intuitively contact the sensor, then push it to open.
Fake PIN Code
The Philips EasyKey has a fake PIN code capability that enables you to enter random number combinations and be successfully recognized as long as you input the genuine password repeatedly. This function can successfully thwart spying and protect your true password.
Patented Full Auto Mortise
A successful verification enables rapid unlocking thanks to the enhanced fully automatic mortise.
Once you have been recognized, you can just push or pull the handle to unlock the door, substantially simplifying the process of using your door lock and enabling quick and easy entry and exit.
Wireless Network Extension
By connecting to the wireless network, the door lock may be remotely managed and its status is constantly tracked.
For customized control of the digital door lock, you can examine the usage history at any moment.
