HUAWEI has introduced an electronic door lock with a wide range of unlocking methods. The novelty is able to recognize not only gadgets and smart cards as an alternative to conventional keys, but also the biometrics of apartment residents.
The novelty is available in two versions with the only difference – the Pro version, in addition to the fingerprint scanner, is equipped with a face recognition system with a response speed of up to 2 seconds. In addition, the lock supports unlocking with a compatible smartphone, smart watch, touching an NFC tag, entering a password, a mechanical key, and other methods. At the same time, it acts as a video intercom, allowing you to “look out” from the apartment without opening the door.
The company notes that with a viewing angle of 78° vertically and 45° horizontally, the 3D camera built into the lock allows people between 120 and 200 cm tall to not bend or bend down to unlock the lock in the face – just walk up to the door. Protection against accidental unlocking is also provided for 10 seconds after the lock is closed from the outside.
As a power source, the novelty, running a modified HarmonyOS firmware, can use an 8800 mAh battery, four AA batteries or a USB Type-C power bank as an “emergency” option. The declared autonomy of HUAWEI Smart Door Lock is from 6 to 10 months, depending on the intensity of work. The start date of sales and the price of new items will be announced later.
