A new fingerprint smart lock has been created called Ola thats fitted with a Capacitive Touch Fingerprint Sensor as well as providing efficient energy consumption and 256 grey scale values in every single pixel.
Ola is also design to withstand use from 10 million cycles providing many years use, and its capacitive sensor can also read the fingerprint arches, loops and whirls on your finger, even if covered or dirty.
Watch the video below to learn more and see the new smart lock that also links to your smartphone via its companion application. Its creators explain more :
“Ola’s app is designed with the intention of minimizing your reliance on technology. The interface of the app is intuitive, and intentionally minimal, because we believe you should be spending time doing other things. We also made sure Ola is easy to open. Once you scanned your lock’s QR code and registered your fingerprint, you could forget your phone in another country and still get inside just as easily.
No keyhole means no lock bumping or lock picking. Ola can be installed in minutes with either a Mortise lock case for security, or a standard latch bolt for convenience and easy installation.
Regular fingerprint sensors recognize users by scanning the ridges and valleys of their fingerprint, but that pattern is easily duplicated. Our sensor utilizes a radio frequency signal to scan the pattern under the surface of the skin. A fake fingerprint has no pattern under the surface, so our radio frequency technology saves you from worrying that someone may copy your fingerprints.”
The Ola project is currently over on the Kickstarter crowd funding website looking to raise enough pledges to make the jump from concept to production. So if you think Ola is something your house or apartment could benefit from, visit the Kickstarter website now to make a pledge from $139 and help Ola become a reality.
