HOW DO HOTEL LOCKS WORK?

While specific hotel door lock systems may vary by hotel, chances are they use one of the following hotel locks:
  1. Magnetic Door Locks
  2. Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) Door Locks
While both options are still widely popular today, RFID hotel door locks are becoming more prevalent for their ease of use, updated security, and keyless solutions.
 
While magnetic key card door locks are an affordable option for hotels, they do have some disadvantages:
  • The magnetic strip is prone to wear and damage, as is the card reader.
  • It’s easy to lose, making security more vulnerable.
  • Inexpensive devices can easily hack these cards affecting security

 
RFID Hotel Door Lock 

RFID hotel door lock offer hotels and guests more options than traditional magnetic key card door locks. RFID technology is widely used in various industries for tracking inventory and controlling access. When used for hotel room access, RFID door locks utilize a combination of the following components, depending on the system:
  • RFID door lock card reader
  • RFID key card or key fob
  • Mobile device
  • Bluetooth compatible smart device
 
The RFID hotel locking system does not require users to insert or swipe a card. Instead, it uses proximity and radio frequencies to communicate with the RFID reader on the door. Containing similar information as magnetic key cards, hotels program RFID key card, or smart device access when a guest checks in. When waved in front of the card reader, the key card or smart device quickly communicates the user’s info with the door lock reader, verifies authorized access, and unlocks the door to the user.
 

Advantages of RFID hotel lock

  • Smart device access improves security.
  • It is not necessary to have a physical card that can be easily lost.
  • If RFID cards are used, they are more durable.
  • With no swiping or insertion, it eliminates wear and tear to the reader.
  • It can be programmed to allow or restrict access to hotel amenities and other access points.

How to Solve The Hotel Door Lock Problems

With smart key card RFID hotel door locks’ popularity, more and more hotels have begun to use RFID keycard hotel door locks as necessary hotel room management locks.

But while using the smart RFID hotel door lock to bring convenience to the hotel, do you also encounter some hotel door lock not working?
 
So when these hotel door lock problems arise, do you want to determine where the hotel door lock problems, and the troubleshooting?
 
If yes, this article will bring you the most comprehensive list of common hotel lock problems, troubleshooting, and solutions.

First of all, we need to understand the structure of the most common hotel door lock types to find the problem location when solving the problem quickly.

Then, some common issues and causes of RFID card hotel door locks will be introduced in detail and simple solutions.
 

Hotel Door Lock Structure

According to the packaging, the smart card hotel door lock comprises two parts: the lock mortise and the lock panel.
 

Hotel Door Lock Panel

The hotel door lock panel is divided into front and back panels. The front panel comprises a hotel lock mainboard, an exterior door handle, and a mechanical lock cylinder.
The back panel comprises an interior door handle, hotel door lock battery packs box and a thumb knob. The front and back panels are connected by two handle spindles inserted in the lock mortise and then joined by fixing screws at four corners. The exterior handle can be used and opened after reading the card, and the interior door handle can be used to open the door at any time from inside.

Hotel Door Lock Mortise

The lock mortise is the core component of the hotel door lock, responsible for the hotel lock’s main locking work. The deadbolt is controlled by the thumb knob of the interior handle, and the lock latch bolt is governed by the handle on the front and back panels.
 
The mainboard is connected to the lock mortise, and the lock mortise is connected to the battery for the power supply.
The above is a simple description of the hotel lock structure.
 

What are the hotel door lock problems and how to solve?

Hotel door lock problem 1: The door is opened without pressing the handle after it is closed.
Problem:
  • It may be that the lock strike of the hotel door lock is not installed correctly, causing the latch bolt to fail to pop out or the latch bolt to be inflexible and unable to pop out.
  • The hotel door lock battery is insufficient. After opening the door, the battery is low, and it usually becomes open if it is not locked.
How to solve:
  • Adjust the lock strike to the right position.
  • Replace the hotel lock battery.

  • Reconnect the cable between mainboard and hotel lock batteries pack;
  • Reread the authorization card;
 
Hotel door lock problem 3: The hotel master card can open the hotel lock, but the guest room card cannot open the hotel door lock.
Problem:
  • When the buzzer beeps three times “di,” “di,” and “di,” and the motor does not sound, it is caused by the wrong setting of the room number card;
  • When the buzzer emits a beep, and the motor does not sound, it is caused by the inconsistency between the hotel lock time and the computer time;
  • The card has expired, or the hotel door lock time is wrong.
  • The room number may be wrong.
How to solve:
  • Reset the room number card for the hotel door lock, and then reset the management card and the new room number card;
  • Reissue the time card on the computer, and then go to the door lock to reread the time card.
 
Hotel door lock problem 4: The master card can open the door, but the guest card cannot open the door, and the latch bolt doesn’t pop out.
Problem:
  • The latch bolt of the lock mortise is damaged. That is, the guest card, floor card, building card are used to open the door, the indicator light does not light, the motor does not sound, and the door does not open with two beeps;

  • Reinstall the spindle of the hotel door lock handle;
  • Reinstall the handle spring;
 
Hotel door lock problem 6: the hotel door lock handle cannot be automatically returned.
Problem:

  • The handle shaft hole is too small. When the handle is turned, the screw that fixes the handle on the panel will touch the door leaf;
  • The panel installation is skewed, causing the handle square rod to always be under force;
How to solve:
  • Correct the door opening;
  • Enlarge the handle shaft hole;
  • Adjust the position of the panel;
 
Hotel door lock problem 7: Alarm after closing the door, stop after 30 seconds, the red light will flash for a while
Problem:
  • The handle hole of the panel is too small, and the handle is obstructed and cannot return automatically;
  • The position of the gusset plate on the door frame is not installed correctly, causing the diagonal tongue to be unable to extend or not to extend;
  • The door opening is too small, or there are foreign objects on the sidewall, which hinder the movement of the inclined tongue assembly, resulting in the inclined tongue cannot be extended or incompletely extended (see the extension length for details);

What is Different About Hotel Door Lock System and What Makes Them so Unique?

Hotel door lock system has traditionally been selected during the construction phase of the hotel in Malaysia. The reason for this is that the doors need to be ordered and prepped for the particular hotel door locks well in advance of the opening of the hotel. Especially for new builds, many times the decision on which hotel door lock system and hotel lock are chosen is made by the owner/developer and design/construction team. Most of the time the operational personnel who typically use the system (such as front desk, housekeeping, engineering, security and IT) are only brought on board closer to the opening of the hotel. As such, the input from these departments is not factored into the overall hotel lock system selection process.
 
The other way that hotel door lock systems are usually installed is during a time of a refresh or room upgrade. Due to the cost of the hotel door lock system, it is usually incorporated as part of an overall renovation. Again, the design team usually has a heavy hand on the overall decision making, and in most cases aesthetics and cost usually win over functionality and proposed security. However, there is the potential for operational, security and IT input into the overall decision making if the ownership group involves the property itself in the project.
 
A major factor involved in the decision of which hotel door lock system to purchase is often influenced by how long the owner intends to keep the property. If they intend to sell the property in the next few years, they may opt to install a less expensive hotel lock system. If they intend to keep the hotel for the long term, they may be convinced to install a quality system that will last for a long time.


                
 
Besides, in the past, the primary concern was the interface to the PMS. However, Adel hotel door lock system can also be linked to energy management and room automation systems, among others. As such, their ability to integrate, and in some cases share networks, can be reasons for the selection of a particular system.
 
Hotel door locks should meet the fire rating code requirements. In most instances the doors need to be fire rated and the hotel door locks may impact the rating to the door. If the hotel locks contain plastic components, the question arises as to whether they are susceptible to melting as a result of the heat and will this affect the ability of a person to open the door and potentially escape a fire. While this has not appeared to have been an issue up until this point in time and most of the locks appear to be code compliant, it may be worthwhile looking into this issue if the hotel is contemplating the replacement of the system.
 
Most of the traditional hotel door lock systems were controlled by the engineering department. They serviced the hotel locks, replaced the batteries, and in some cases interrogated the hotel locks when required. They were able to do this as the hotel door locks were primarily stand-alone devices and had limited interaction with other systems. This has all changed. Today’s RFID networkable hotel door lock systems interact with most key operational departments and are primarily the responsibility of the IT departments. The result is that the system has become much more than just a locking system, and due to the fact that it typically resides on the hotel’s administrative data network, it means that the hotel door lock system needs to adhere to the same security protocols and requirements as the rest of the applications. For this reason, many hotel door lock manufacturers request that the security team, as well as the IT and engineering departments, be involved in the selection process. The question then arises as to whether the hotels are equipped to address the change in roles, given that many hotels no longer have dedicated IT staff onsite to assist with the support of the network and system.

How to choose a digital lock?

How to choose a digital lock?

How to choose a digital lock?

How do you pick a digital lock? This is a young and wildly immature space, and many products on the market are still extremely rough around the edges. Even top products can balk when dealing with old or stiff deadbolts, doors that don’t shut well, or environments where non-standard fixtures are in use. The bottom line is that it’s tough to declare that any product is universally perfect for every home. That said, here are some key considerations to take into account to help you narrow down your shopping list.


Bluetooth Digital Lock

How smart is it? An important issue to consider first: Some “digital locks” don’t work with a smartphone app or any smart home networking hubs at all; they’re really just electronic locks that use a code instead of a key to open up. One step up from that, you’ll find Bluetooth-only locks. These work with a smartphone app, but can’t be monitored remotely or via a smart home system. That’s fine if you’re looking to get rid of the keys in your pocket, but less impressive if you want to make your entrance portals a true part of your home network.

 
Replace or retrofit?

You’re forgiven if you don’t want to replace your antique doorknob with a metallic device that looks like it would be more at home keeping people out of a strip mall bank branch. A sizeable number of digital lock products don’t require you to replace all your existing hardware. Instead, they are installed on the inside of the door only, replacing only the interior part of the deadbolt. You can continue to use a standard key from the outside or open the lock via a smartphone app.

 
Smart home hub integration

If you have an existing hub like Amazon, Google Home, or an Apple TV, you’ll want to ensure your chosen smart lock is compatible from the start. Many digital lock support Bluetooth, so they work with your phone, but lack the technology needed to connect with your home network. If you’re using a smart home hub like the Google Home or Amazon, look for a lock that supports Z-Wave or ZigBee, instead.
 

Digital Lock Power Backup

What do you do if the batteries inside the lock die—and you’re stuck outside? Some locks allow for emergency power to be applied should this happen. Raizo digital locks feature external posts to which you can connect a power bank, giving you to supply temporary power to get the door open. Other models retain the traditional key cylinder for backup.

 
Guest access features

Most digital locks let you set up temporary keys for houseguests, which you can delete when they’ve returned home. Smarter systems even let you set time restrictions around when each access code can be used.

6 Reasons To Upgrade To Keyless Electronic Digital Door Locks

 
When it comes to home security, you do not want to leave any stone unturned. In an age where everything has become digitized and interconnected, right from integrated home automation systems to smart bulbs and smart speakers, there is a need for a rock-solid digital door lock system for your home. Big old padlocks with rusty keys are a thing of the past and newer keyless digital door locks have plenty of advantages over them. It is time for you to upgrade? First learn all about the benefits of a keyless electronic digital door lock.
 

Keyless Entry Is Convenient

Once you upgrade to keyless digital door locks, the biggest noticeable advantage you will feel is the convenience by which you can enter your home. There will be no more fumbling for keys in your purse or pocket and no more wiggling of your key in the slot and praying that it opens. All you have to is to enter your code on the panel and you’re in. Depending on the type of system you opted for, you can also use your smartphone for entry, or keep the key fob in your pocket and open the door without taking it out. A digital door lock with remote also helps you unlock your home from a distance.
 

You Can Never Be Locked Out Of Your Home

With an electronic digital door lock, the possibility of forgetting your key inside and locking yourself outside is virtually impossible. Since most digital smart locks offer multiple ways to authenticate yourself, all it would take is a fingerprint scan, a numeric keypad entry or a simple tap of your smartphone if you ever forget your key fob. You can even wirelessly open your door from your office if your child just came back from school early and found himself or herself outside his home without a key.
 

You Can Keep An Eye On Who’s Coming And Going

Digital door locks for home allow you to link passwords and pins to various members of your family. You will instantly get to know who has come into your home judging by the pin that was entered. This helps immensely if you want to make sure your children have safely reached home.
 

No More Hiding Keys In Insecure Locations

The first things burglars do when attempting to break into your home is check under the doormat or in the flower pot for a spare key. This habit is extremely risky since it may cause a burglary in your home with great ease. A smart digital door lock is so convenient that you can never lock yourself out, thus allowing you to never keep a key under your doormat ever again.
 

They Can Be Customised

An external digital door lock can be customised to your needs since they have many in-built features. Want to allow a maximum of only 3 entries before the system locks out? Done! Want a new pin code for each of your family members? Done! Want to change all your codes every three months? Done! All this allows you to keep your digital lock for years and years without replacing it.
 

Advanced Security

You can opt for digital door locks that have additional features within them. Some advanced systems contact the authorities or the security company if multiple incorrect pins are entered, suspecting an unauthorized entry. Some features allow you to reset your lock wirelessly if you suspect a burglary, in which case all existing codes will be wiped out and only one master code will be operational. These benefits of digital door locks are so overpowering that nothing should stop you from upgrading to a digital door lock system.

​Smart Locks for Multifamily is a potential market in Malaysia

​Smart Locks for Multifamily is a potential market in Malaysia
View Full Size

Smart Locks for Multifamily is a potential market in Malaysia

There are dozens of smart locks on the market today, but most devices are designed for single-family homes.
 
Why does this matter? In a multifamily building, smart locks have two equally important users: The property manager and the resident. Devices built for single family homes aren’t designed to cater to both.
 
Times are changing, though. More technology companies than ever are intentionally trying to serve the multifamily market.
 
Smart locks for apartments should meet a few fundamental requirements: the bare necessities. Make sure your smart lock checks these boxes:
 

1. Multiple, customizable user permission levels

Smart locks built for single-family homes have limited and unchangeable permission levels. Multifamily properties need smart locks with multiple, flexible permission levels to unleash their full potential
Unlike single-family homes, multifamily buildings need at least three different permission levels for their smart locks: The landlord or management staff, the resident, and third party service vendors. Management is a little different at each property, so customizable permission levels are a must.
 

2. Temporary digital keys

Residents love the convenience of temporary digital keys and the peace of mind that comes with knowing who has entered their apartment and when. For property managers, e-keys make maintenance calls easier. Instead of picking up a physical key from the maintenance office, staff can remotely access units to fulfill work orders, saving time and money for the property.
 
Temporary digital keys also prove the need for multiple permission levels. Single family smart locks might allow residents to create keys, but it’s critical (and the law) for property managers to have access to units as well.
 

3. Integration With Access Control System

Temporary digital keys are not very helpful if the dog walker a resident order can’t get into the building. That’s why property managers need to choose a smart lock that integrates with their access control system.
 
For a more turnkey solution, many properties are turning to smart apartment management platforms that connect smart locks and access control, as well as with thermostats, HVAC systems, property management tools, and more.
 

4. Fire Code Rating

Multifamily properties are held to a different safety standard than single family homes, especially for fire safety. Smart locks must meet the same fire safety requirements as other building materials. Unfortunately, this doesn’t always happen.
 
Building materials used in multifamily construction– including walls, doors, and locks– must receive a fire resistance rating from an objective research group like Bomba Certification in Malaysia. Fire resistance rating is defined by how long a material can survive against direct flames.
 
Many smart locks, even those regularly used in multifamily properties, do not meet the fire safety requirements in most states. This is not only a safety issue, but a regulatory concern depending on your state building code. Make sure the smart lock you choose meets your area’s fire code.
 
 
Introducing the smart lock from Adel A300 in Malaysia which fulfil all the requirements.

Adel A300

  • Multiple, customizable user permission levels
  • Temporary digital keys
  • Integration with Access Control System
  • Fire Code Rating

When choosing a keyless lock, the first thing to determine is what type of lock suites your requirement. A keypad or Apps controlled lock often works well if you don’t wish to give people physical keys, access cards or fobs.

Low Battery Indicator

No matter which type of keyless door lock you choose, look for one that has a low-battery indicator that alerts you when the battery needs to be replaced. Some models have an indicator light that appears, whereas with other locks, it might have a slower response time or require multiple attempts to open the door. This is an important feature because it will avoid your from being locked out due to a dead battery.
 

Pricing

The price of a keyless electronic door lock depends on functionality, features, installation, connectivity and required equipment, as well as how many locks you will need. Based on the 20 models we examined, quality models range in cost from RM899 – RM1,899. Bear in mind, you get what you pay.
 

Integrations

Consider which integrations you'll need. Many people like to have their door locks integrated with Alexa, Google Home, Tuya Smart Home and etc, but not all locks can do that. Also consider whether you need the lock to be integrated with a security system and/or connected to video surveillance systems, cameras, alarms, and more.

Battery For Digital Door Lock In Malaysia

 
Here are common questions about this topic in Malaysia:
What kind of battery do we use?
 
Basically, most digital locks can only be powered by 1.5V AA alkaline batteries.

By default, all door locks have batteries in their packaging, but the batteries in the packaging are usually weak or not durable. These batteries are used for testing purposes after the installation is complete. We always recommend customers replace new batteries once the testing is done.

For best results, we only recommend that you use alkaline batteries. These types of batteries are most suitable for use with our locks, and depending on the frequency of use, they can usually last up to 12 months. There are many AA battery brands on the market that are trustworthy. Our most recommended brand is Energizer (without Max or Max Plus) / Duracell / Panasonic Evolta.

Tested by our customers, Energizer, Duracell and Panasonic batteries are considered to have stronger anti-leakage capabilities. 4 batteries can use the digital lock for up to 15 months (depending on usage).

Battery leakage is the number one killer of digital lock failures. Please check it regularly to avoid locking up any rising problems.
 


Tips on the maintenance of the digital lock battery:

1) Only use alkaline batteries
2) No rechargeable battery
3) Do not mix new batteries with old batteries
4) If possible, Change batteries every 8 - 10 months.
5) Diligently check for battery leakage every 6 months.
6) Avoid lithium, carbon-zinc and rechargeable batteries altogether.

 
To ensure that the risk of your digital door lock failure is reduced, you should start maintenance from the battery. To purchase a digital door lock in Malaysia, please contact us immediately for price details.

How Do Smart Locks Work?

There are a lot of great smart devices out there that would be cool to have. And then there are devices that will make you wonder how you ever lived without them.
 
Smart locks are at the top of that list. With a smart lock, you can ditch your keys and enjoy the safety and convenience of managing your lock wherever you are.
 
Take a look at how a smart lock works and some of the benefits they provide over a traditional door lock.
 

What are smart locks and how do they work?

Smart locks are keyless door locks that allow you to open your door without a physical key. They can be controlled remotely using a smartphone app. Many models feature a numeric keypad on the lock for entering a unique access code.
 
A smart lock connects to your home's WiFi network, which allows it to receive the code or smartphone command to lock or unlock.
 
While some smart locks require you to completely replace your entire lock system, others fit right over your existing lock system or only require a few modifications.
 
When smart locks are integrated into a complete smart home, they can also integrate with other devices, like a smart speaker or your security system. However, they need to be connected to a smart home hub that enables all the devices to work together.
 

Do you really need a smart lock?

Your house key locks and unlocks your front door. That's it. But if you're looking for something more than bare bones basic functionality, then a smart lock is the way to go. Some of the ways smart locks make life easier (and your home safer) include:
 

  • Control your front door no matter where you are.
With a smart lock, your smartphone doubles as your key. There’s no need to rush home to beat your guests or a delivery driver to the door; simply log onto your app and unlock your front door from wherever you are.
 

  • Codes over keys.
If you’ve ever stood at your front door while digging through your bag to find your keys, you’ll appreciate the keyless functionality that lets you unlock your door with a simple code—no key required.
 
 

  • No more hide-a-keys.
Smart locks eliminate the need for making copies of your key for everyone. This is also much safer than having multiple copies of your house key floating around, protecting your home from potential burglaries.
 

  • Notifications help you remember to lock up.
If you’ve ever left your house in a rush to make it to work or drop off your kids on time, you know the worried feeling that comes with wondering whether or not you remembered to lock your door on the way out. Many smart locks will send you notifications on your phone if you forgot to lock your door, so you can quickly lock it with the tap of a button.
 

Smart locks as part of an integrated smart home 

A smart lock integrated into a smart home system makes life easier in a number of ways:
 

  • Know who's coming or going.
You can make up to 30 unique access codes for everyone who needs to get into your house, from the babysitter to dog sitter to your own kids. Your system keeps a log of which code was used and when, so you know exactly who is coming and going. You can also receive notifications on your smartphone when a code is used.
 

  • Create guest codes for visitors.
Preparing for out-of-town visitors can be stressful enough without having to run and get a copy of your key made or coordinate your schedules so you're home when they arrive. Just make a temporary access code for your guests so they can come and go as they please. Then, when they leave, you can delete the code.
 

  • Create custom rules.
You can also create custom rules for your smart lock, such as locking doors automatically after a certain amount of time, or arming your security system and turning off your lights when you lock your front door.
 
 

  • Lock your door with the sound of your voice.
Want to make sure your door is locked, but your smartphone is charging in another room? No problem, when your smart lock is integrated with a system that includes a Google Home or Amazon Echo. Just say, ''Hey Google, lock the front door.'' It's that simple.
 

  • Leave with one touch
If your morning rush includes juggling kids, book bags, keys, your wallet, and more, you'd probably welcome anything that makes getting out the door easier. With a smart home system, one-touch leaving locks your door, arms your security system, turns off the lights, and adjusts the thermostat to save energy—all with the simple touch of the lock button.
 

  • Arm your security system at night easily
You don't need to make the rounds to get your house night time ready by checking locks or going from room to room to turn the lights off. You can rest easy knowing that once you arm your system, your doors lock, your lights turn off, and your temperature adjusts automatically—all thanks to the custom actions of your integrated system. It's as simple as the touch of a button or a voice command.
 
 
Some smart locks are simple to install, but others can turn into a complicated project, depending on your comfort level with hardware and technology.

The Advantages of Using a Keypad Lock System

The Advantages of Using a Keypad Lock System
View Full Size

The Advantages of Using a Keypad Lock System

The main purpose of a door lock is to keep a facility or property secure. If you’re considering installing a keypad lock, you will want to get informed about their benefits in commercial and residential settings.
 
Padlock for door is one of the best ways to go keyless and safeguard a property. Often, keypad lock operates in connection with access control systems. Learn more about how keypad locks work and their advantages.
 

How Keypad Lock Works

Instead of a key, this type of electronic door locks requires a numerical code to grant entry to a facility or property. The code is punched in by users via a numerical pad, similar to those on a basic calculator. If the correct code is entered, the door lock or deadbolt should release. Some mechanisms require batteries or a small electrical current in order to unlock.
 
Some keypad locks have an integrated security feature that keeps the door locked for a set amount of time (usually 10 to 15 minutes) after several incorrect attempts to enter the code.

Benefits of Keypad Locks

There are many benefits to choosing the best pad lock over conventional locking mechanisms.
 

  1. Convenience of a Keypad Lock
The biggest advantage is convenience. It eliminates the necessity of keys. There’s no need to carry them around, keep track of copies and spares, or change the door lock when a key is stolen or misplaced. Children, guests and service providers can be given their own code or a temporary code, rather than a key.
 

  1. Higher Security
Keypad lock has a different hardware design than other types of locks. They don’t have cylinder mechanisms, so they essentially cannot be picked or bumped like conventional locks. This keeps the building more secure. Instead of risking losing keys and having to rekey or change out the lock. With a keypad lock system, it’s easy to change the security pin code whenever necessary.
 

  1. Enhanced Durability
Traditional keys and locks wear down over time; it becomes more difficult to get it to turn and function properly. Padlock for door is much more durable than conventional locks. A high-quality keypad door lock should last longer with standard hardware.
 

  1. Easy Installation
Many property owners in Malaysia think that if they want to install a keypad lock, they’ll have to make major adjustments to door or frames. That’s not true. In most cases, padlock for door can be easily installed on standard doors, just like any standard lock. Mechanical and battery-powered keypad locks are available which don’t require connection to a power source.
 

  1. Integration with Access Control Systems
Keypad lock systems can be used as part of an access control system. This allows companies to restrict entry permission, even when using a correct code, during certain hours of the day or night. Businesses can also place a keypad entry system within the interior of a building. This restricts access to certain parts of the facility. It’s handy for business owners who want to limit employee access to certain parts of an office complex during certain times of the day. Keypad lock is the best electronic door locks for their choice.
 

Based on the above benefits, you can see why keypad lock have become increasingly popular for residential and commercial applications. However, one thing that is worth nothing about keypad lock systems is that they’re generally more expensive than conventional locks. The cost of keypad lock is high.

What is Fingerprint Door Lock? How Do They Work?

What is Fingerprint Door Lock? How Do They Work?

Security has always been a concern of paramount importance to human beings. We have gone from protecting valuables in the past by keeping them in dungeons to safeguarding data by layers and layers of cryptographic software. Either way, ensuring the well-being of our personal belongings has always been near the top of our priority list.
 
Thanks to technology, today security involves a wide range of software and hardware including web-based security services, biometrics and personal devices with integrated security levels. One of the biggest advances of the digital-technical age has been the introduction of biometrics into security.
 
Here, we shall take a look at fingerprint door lock, one of the earliest and most used systems deploying biometrics, and take an in-depth look at its workings.
 

What is fingerprint door lock?

Let’s start with the definition. Although the name in itself is pretty self-explanatory, a fingerprint lock may be defined as “a system which grants access to authorized personnel by virtue of recognizing their unique fingerprints.” You have probably looked at your hands countless times and noticed the ridges and valley pattern. The patterns were an important outcome of the human evolution as they enhanced our ability to grip. However, an unforeseen consequence of this particular step in the evolutionary process was to grant humans a fantastic method of identification.
 
Fingerprint Door Lock

Human fingerprints are extremely detailed and nearly unique. What is more, they are also very difficult to fake or alter and can endure over an individual’s lifespan. This makes them very suitable as long-term markers of human identity. When the technology which can recognize and differentiate between fingerprints is deployed in securing access to a door way, you get a “Fingerprint Door Lock System”.
 
However, a question which arises is that why should you not stick to the old door lock and key? Or use some other alternative methods instead of going for the relatively expensive electronic door lock systems. Well, not only are fingerprint door lock systems reliable and non-intrusive, there is also no danger of leaving your fingers at home or at office. Also, the fact that fingerprints are nearly always unique, makes fingerprint door locking system perfect with regards to security. And of course, you can hardly forget your fingerprints or even guess it, as is the case with an alphanumeric password. Thus, fingerprint locks can be said is the best electronic door locks for you.
 

How do fingerprint door locks work?

Okay, so let’s get down to how these door locks actually work. Basically, fingerprint locks operated by scanning and converting your fingerprint data into a numerical template.
 
Once you place your finger onto the scanner for the first time the conversion into numerical data takes place, and the fingerprint template is saved. This process is then repeated every time you want to grant someone access. The next time someone places his/her finger on the sensor, it matches the data obtained through the finger with the pre-saved values. If a match is found, access is granted and the door opens. On the other hand, if its someone else trying to get through, access is not allowed and the door remains locked. Simple, no?
 
Now, matching the algorithm is the most important process here. This is usually achieved by the Minutia matching process. In this, several minutia points are located on your finger’s pads, along with their position and direction when you register for the first time. This information is stored in the memory. While matching, the already stored fingerprint template is compared to the received input. If there is a match, a green LED usually signals it and the door is opened. The process is very quick and is completed in a fraction of a second. In case you are wondering, two instances of friction ridge skin impressions together constitute a minutia.
 
Disadvantages associated with fingerprint door lock systems
Fingerprint based systems while very useful do however have some disadvantages. And ironically enough, many of them stem from the system’s very virtues. While they are very, very hard to fool, it is not impossible. Scanners that use optical systems to obtain information can sometimes be fooled by an image of the finger. On the other hand, a person can get around capacitor-based scanners by using a mold. These situations are avoided by using pulse and heat detectors also called live finger detection.
 
Another major issue with fingerprint door locks is that if someone does manage to create a copy/mold/image of your hand that can open doors, well, you are in deep trouble. Since you can’t really reset fingerprints the way you can with a normal password, it will mean either replacing locks or using a combination of pin and fingerprints.
 
Also, sometimes the scanner may refuse to recognize your finger in case of scarring or cuts or abrasions. Power cuts, battery discharge are other common issues associated with these door locking systems, which have the potential to leave you stranded outside your workplace or office. They are forestalled by integrating a mechanical system, where you can use a key to unlock the door in case of such a failure.
 
Advantages over other fingerprint lock systems
There are certainly other biometric systems as well that incorporate many of the advantages associated with fingerprint locking systems. For example, iris scanning plugs the slight potential for security breaches left by fingerprint-based systems. Voice based authentication on the other hand, lets you just speak to open the door without even requiring you to place your finger on it.
 
However, iris scanners are very expensive as compared to fingerprint door lock systems and many people may find the experience of getting their eyes scanned, uncomfortable. While it appears perfect for high security government installations, fingerprint door lock systems are much more affordable and comfortable when it is out homes or offices that are being talked about.
 
Similarly, despite all its advantages, voice based biometric door opening systems have a very serious flaw. The rate of failure is very high. You may have a hoarse throat or a cold and the door will remain unyielding before you, refusing to recognize your voice.
 

What to look for in fingerprint door locks?

Now that you know all about fingerprint door locks, you may be itching to get one and install it at your home or office. There are just a couple of things that you should keep in mind while getting a fingerprint lock system installed.
 
First of all, make sure that it has a keypad or a mechanical key slot. This will make sure that in case the electronic door lock is unable to recognize your fingerprints for some reasons, say a cut or even a power failure, you have an alternative way to get in.
 
Make sure that you check the FRR (False Rejection Rate) as well as you don’t want to purchase one with a high FRR. Also, locks made of tough brass or steel are recommended over aluminium since they cannot be broken using a crowbar and back the intelligence of the fingerprint scanner system with their sturdiness and strength.
 
Checking what power the system is also a good idea. There are a whole range of systems available that may draw their power from batteries or that could be connected to your main power supply.
 
Also take a look at the number of fingerprints that can be stored — or in other words, the number of people that can be granted access at once. This is particularly important when you are using the system to secure the doors at your offices and require a lot of people to be able to go in and out.
 

In conclusion, fingerprint locks are pretty awesome. Secure, affordable, non-intrusive and almost fail safe, these systems don’t require you to carry a key or remember a password. You can also grant access to as many people as you want and remove their access at your pleasure. In short, whether it’s your home that you want to protect or your office, definitely consider getting a fingerprint door lock installed; it is very likely to prove to be worth your money.

10 features to consider before buying a smart door lock
View Full Size
1. Battery life
The majority of smart locks operate on either multiple AA alkaline batteries or a rechargeable lithium-ion cell. Whatever type of battery your smart door lock uses, you’ll still get an alert on your app when battery power gets low. Moreover, the housing mounted on the inside of your door will often include an LED that will flash red when the battery needs to be replaced or recharged. How long do these batteries normally last? Well, it all depends on the smart door lock and its functions. Many companies rate their battery life in terms of the number of “cycles” — that is, the total number of physical locks and unlocks — and power usually lasts anywhere from three months to a year, depending on the type of lock and the functions it performs.
 
2. Alternate unlocking way
Bluetooth and Wi-Fi may be great, but they are none the less occasionally unreliable. Even technology companies whose job it is to manufacture smart door locks are aware of this potential problem. So, they’ve come up with alternative ways for locking/unlocking smart door locks. As well as wireless unlocking techniques, more and more practical smart locks now offer alternative physical or electronic entry options, including PIN codes (sometimes with an add-on keypad, also Bluetooth-connected) and/or a physical key. A small number of smart door lock suppliers also offer a key fob to wirelessly unlock a door if you don’t have your smartphone with you.
 
3. Auto lock/unlock
Bluetooth enabled door locks usually provide keyless or PIN-less entry. When you’re carrying your smartphone, an smart door lock — particularly a retrofit lock — may let you auto-unlock your door when you are a prescribed distance away, and auto-lock behind you after a user-prescribed period of time.  However, this prescribed distance is usually limited to around 30 feet, and it has to be remembered that you can only carry out this function from outside the property. A best smart door locks with keypads generally won’t include proximity auto-unlock capabilities for sound security reasons, like preventing an intruder or thief from entering a property using a lost or stolen phone.
 
4. Guest keys
Smart door locks, particularly retrofit models, let you assign “keys” for visitors who you’re happy to let into your home in your absence: visitors like out-of-town friends or family members, service workers or delivery people, or neighbours watering the plants, taking in the mail or or feeding the cat while you’re away. You may have come across this particular practice if you’ve ever stayed in an Airbnb property.  Entry ‘keys’ are sent via a text or email code through the smart door lock app, and these keys give your visitor wireless entry capabilities for a prescribed period of time or a prescribed number of entries. Replacement smart locks with keypads allow you to simply assign temporary passwords, timed for single use or for a specific number of hours or days. Most smart door locks also track who comes and goes, and smart locks with Wi-Fi can send an alert to your phone when someone comes or goes, so even when you’re still at work you’ll be able to find out whether the kids have returned home from their schools.
 
5. Weatherproof rating
Smart door locks are complicated pieces of kit, housing not just the traditional metal pins, tumblers, gears and other standard lock mechanics, but also sensitive electronics. Thus they need to be able to withstand extremes in weather conditions to function properly. Complete replacement smart door locks will indicate what temperatures the door lock is designed to withstand and often have an IP water/dust-proof rating. However, not all smart locks are born equal: not all can withstand adverse weather conditions over a prolonged period. If you want to ensure that your smart lock is up to the job, no matter what the weather throws at it, then only buy from a reputable lock manufacturer with a long and proven track record of testing for such conditions.
 
6. ANSI lock quality
Most physical door locks will have their own distinct specifications and idiosyncrasies; so it’s difficult to establish whether the smart lock you’re considering buying will be up to the job. In order to make that choice a little easier, 3 standard lock designations have been introduced by the ANSI/BHMA (American national Standards Institute/ Builders’ Hardware Manufacturers Association). These designation tests judge locks on their robustness and security against picking, bumping, other physical attacks along with the longevity of the locking/unlocking mechanism. The 3 designation grades are:
 
Grade 1
The strongest grade, usually reserved for commercial applications
 
Grade 2
The most common residential lock, and most commonly bought ANSI-approved lock
 
Grade 3
Usually a secondary lock to supplement a grade 1 or 2 lock.
 
7. Wireless security
Security is always a concern, especially when you constantly hear and read about hacking attacks. That concern is no different for Wi-Fi security. Most smrt door lock manufactures will publish the technical specification of their locks and tell you just how secure their W-Fi security is, but it should be remembered that there is no ‘best’ wireless security scheme or standard for smart door locks. The best smart lock you can hope to discover is just how high a priority the smart door lock manufacturer places on the issue. The only way you’ll discover that, unfortunately, is through extensive research. What can be said with some sort of conviction, however, is that the best keylss door lock – that is the most hack-proof – are keypad-enabled models that don’t use Bluetooth or Wi-Fi as their primary entry method.
 
8. Smart home compatibility
Most smart door locks can be integrated into an existing smart home environment — using Amazon Alexa, Google Home, Apple HomeKit, IFTTT (If This Then That), Z-Wave, ZigBee, Samsung SmartThings — so it’s easy enough to incorporate the locking of doors, turning on lights and adjusting temperature controls into your smart routine. However, as things currently stand, very few smart door locks are compatible with all smart home technologies.
 
9. Voice control
An increasing number of smart door locks that are compatible with Amazon and HomeKit also provide Alexa and Siri voice control. However, this voice control capability is usually limited to locking the door when you’re inside your home. Amazon recently approved an unlock voice control protocol which requires the user to provide a spoken password after a spoken unlock command. A growing number of lock makers are also just beginning to implement this new Alexa Key “speak to unlock” feature.
 
10. Fit and finish
Traditional door lock vendors with a vaulted pedigree offer a wide variety of smart door lock hardware finishes and trims and matching latch mechanisms, including variations of silver, bronze, brass and black. Newer tech-focused smart lock providers, however, do not offer such choices. Hence if aesthetics is important to you, your digital door lock purchase options are limited.
