This seems like a practical thing to have for your house to boost security.
But let’s go to the pros first. Since fingerprints are considerably unique (less than 2% chance that anyone shares the same fingerprints), you’re pretty sure you’re gonna be the ONLY one (and those you allow) who can enter your home – no more fumbling for keys and grimacing at the thought that someone is gonna sneak up behind you for a fondle. And the Biometric Fingerprint Lock shuts itself tight as soon as you close your door so you don’t have to worry on your way to work if you’ve locked your door. Aesthetically, it’s pretty futuristic looks is a plus for those who wants to have a cooler looking lock than the rest of the neighborhood. AND it’s only $199, which is a very, very, very reasonably price considering how expensive gadgets like these were a few years back.
Now the con’s. The Biometric Fingerprint Lock has enough memory to carry 120 fingerprints. Now, unless it’s for an office building/space, who in the world has that many friends/family at the same time? Unless you count the milkman and the newspaper boy as ‘friends’ and maybe your neighbor or whatever. Even if you have a large family, why would you want your grand aunt from Ireland to have access into your abode? Which brings me to my next point, what if someone infiltrated your circle of incredibly large close friends/family by chopping off their fingers and using it to enter your home?!?! That’s something to think about, you OCDs. :P Also, con no. 3, what if you had a freak accident at Starbucks where you accidentally touched the coffee heater with your fingers and it mars your fingerprints so bad that you’ll NEVER gain entry into your own home again!
Okay, I’m just messing around. There isn’t really a con except for one. Honestly. The Biometric Fingerprint Lock uses two AA batteries. WHAT IF THE BATTERIES RUN OUT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT AND ALL THE STORES ARE CLOSED AND IT’S RAINING CATS AND DOGS? Now that’s something to *really* think about. Stock up on the AA batteries and this point would be moot. :)
I would get one here regardless, the thought of being fondled while fumbling for my keys is just too much to bear.
