Kwikset’s new $ 249 Halo Touch fingerprint-activated smart lock is now available for purchase. The lock manufacturer first announced its new smart lock at CES earlier this year, and it lets you skip annoying postcodes and simply scan your fingerprint to gain entry.
With the ability to program and store up to 100 fingerprints for 50 users, Halo Touch is perfect for both small businesses and home use, so you can give access to family, friends and employees. The Wi-Fi-enabled deadbolt can connect to Wi-Fi networks and smartphones in the home or business, and does not require users to run for extra equipment, such as a panel or hub, or pay for a recurring subscription service.
With a quick search, you can lock or unlock a door, but you can still use a traditional key if you need to. Integration with Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa also lets you lock and unlock with just your voice. You can also remotely monitor and control these locks anywhere with Kwikset iOS and Android apps, which can also send lock activity notifications and let you review your lock history.
The Halo Touch Kwikset can be purchased starting today for $ 249. It is available in a variety of elegant finishes, such as Venetian bronze and satin nickel, and you can pick one of your own directly from Kwikset or from another major retailer such as Amazon, Home Depot or Lowe’s.
