No. Only the person who know's the 8 digit master code is authorised to enroll new users.
When you first install the lock it comes with a standard 8 digit mastercode which you change on first use to a code of your choice.
Under normal use (10-15 accesses per day) the fingerprint lock should operate for a year on a single set of alkaline batteries.
The system goes to Low-power "sleep" mode after 10 seconds of inactivity; in this mode minimum power is consumed. Whenever the system is active (display on or driving the lock) it consumes maximum power. Avoiding "waking up" the system unnecessarily will extend battery life.
In sleep mode the lock can run for several years on a single set of batteries. Is is impossible for the lock to "forget" its settings even if the batteries are removed.
When batteries need replacement, the system emits a warning beeping sound after locking or unlocking the door. It will give you about 4 weeks warning before the batteries run flat. When accessing the bolt, the motor will sound "straining" under low battery condition.
No; the system configuration and user information & data, are saved in non volatile Flash memory (similiar to the one used in jump-drives and MP3 players) data may be stored indefinitely without the need of batteries.
The system is designed to capture data from either hand, as long as the fingerprint matches the finger of enrollment, the lock will function properly.
The finger print sensor uses RF techniques to collect data from below the skin therefore, its "reading" ability is not affected by dirt. It is advisable however, to wipe dirt and sand off, prior to swiping, to avoid scratching the sensor's protective glass surface.
The system reads sub-dermal (below the skin) fingerprint data therefore is tolerant to small cuts and skin blemishes. It will not however, read through a bandage.
No. Your fingerprint is NOT stored in the system. The data collected during swiping is used to extract a mathematical expression of the features that make your print unique. This mathemetical representation is what is stored in memory. This method is both economical (small memory requirements) and secure (unable to duplicate the actual fingerprint).
Fingerprint Locks do not take responsibility for this action. The locks come with a backup key so you should keep this somewhere easy to access incase you do need to get into your house this way. If there is an error with the lock and it does not allow you to get through the door then we advise calling a locksmith to get you in - the same as you would have to do if it was any other lock on your door.
