BEBASIA Fingerprint Lock, 4 Unlock Ways Keyless Entry Door Lock, Door Lock with Keypad, Fingerprint Door Lock, Keyless Lock with Handle, Digital Door Lock(Silver)


Protect your home and family with the BEBASIA Fingerprint Lock! This stylish and functional door lock features 4 ways of locking, plus a reversible handle for easy opening and closing. The oled display and voice guide will help you install the door lock easily, and the low battery reminder will protect you from being locked out due to a dead battery.


HARFOs Keyless Door Lock is designed to be installed on any type of doors. It is compatible with both interior and exterior doors. It can also be used as a replacement for existing door locks. It is equipped with an OLED display and voice guide. It can be operated by using the touchscreen, the built-in voice guide, or the code pad. It can also be used to control the home security system. The keyless door lock has four different functions: lock, unlock, monitor, and code. It is a great tool for your home and office.

This one is very solidly built and it has worked very well so far. The fingerprint reader has no problem reading my fingers or my wife's fingers. That is the primary method we use to open the door. However, the keypad works well once you wake it up. Sometimes it takes a few keys to bring the keypad screen to life, but then it is fine. The installation instructions are quite good, and the programming instructions are adequate. It accepts 9 administrators, and 290 regular users. It may seem odd as every fingerprint or RFID card counts as one person, however once you understand the concept, it becomes less difficult. The handles reverse very easily, but my one was LH. Overall, I'm very impressed with this lock.

If you have a steel door, you will need to have a multitool and experience on hand to install this lock. I used a multitool and a carbide bit to carve out the steel to accommodate the bolt and face plate. The drill bit that was included was very easy to use. The steel door and the wood were open for drilling without any problems. As far as the lock is concerned, it looks and feels very heavy duty. For example, it has quite a bit of weight. I was able to find the instructions without having to call customer service. It was easy to program. Each fingerprint, combination lock, or proxy card counts as one user. There is no way to program usernames and associated authentication methods. In the 300 authentication slots available, each slot is a user. If you program two fingers, two passwords and two key fobs, six users would be six. You will be seen as a different user in relation to the other users. I would like to have the ability to add a username and then associate many authentication methods for that username. Keep a log on a spreadsheet for each authentication method and who has been assigned to a fingerprint or fob today if you want to have rights. While the fingerprint reader can be hit or miss, this is more of a user issue. Be consistent with how you place your finger on the device. It is best to try a little on the fingerprint, while programming and using it, to see the best results. The solution you used to select the emergency key hole was very well thought out and made access to the hole easy. I absolutely adore that when you enter the house, the door locks immediately behind you. When you are comfortable using the lock, it will immediately be apparent that it was a great investment for your safety and easy access. You can also give your pet sitter a temporary code. You have the ability to create single use pass codes. I like it when the price is right. Other vendors should pay attention and reduce their prices for locks with half the features. I don't enjoy the Echo, nor the Google Home controlled locks. That is going to really cause trouble. This lock is a great option, unless you really need the ability to remotely unlock it, have a builtin alarm, have a camera built in, or the ability to interface it with your phone to look at authentication logs or to program it. It was easy to program it on site, so that is all. I plan to purchase more items in the future as long as the price stays within reason. I have a really great purchase.

This handle has been working great for me for a month. I use it exclusively with the fingerprint scanner. It is very quick and VERY rarely fails my scan. It is much faster than fumbling with a key or pad. The only slight knock is that you have to use a screwdriver to get into the back in order to program new users, but that's a minor hassle. Just something to think about.

Hello, as a new landlord, I wanted access to the property without risk of keys being duplicated or loaned out. This solution with finger prints is the answer. The ability to unclog the door in a few seconds also means that there is little risk that the tenant will leave the place unlocked. We tried a blue tooth/wiFi version first, but there are so many moving parts with smarthome hubs and wifi. All need to be present and working. Secondly, how do you handle locksouts, dead cell phones, etc? For me, this lock is perfect. It was easy to install thanks to perfectly aligned templates and a drill bit. I couldn't be happier.

Set up the system relatively easily and to date it works well. Although the documentation looks unorganized, I was able to figure it out. There are inputs for the card reader door status and request to exit. You can either use the web interface directly or use the Windows application. It is acceptable for my application. Before this, I purchased a Honeywell Netax system and found it unusable because of the slow web interface. I purchased their winpak software, which cost almost two thousand dollars. I cannot pay that amount.

Installed was easy for us because this is what we do to earn a living. I have been using other suppliers but when I saw the price I thought I would give it a review, and see how low priced an access control system would be. Software is a bit difficult, but it works well when you have some support from their technical team. I sent an email, as I was not able to get one of the door strikes to engage. After a few minutes, I received an email from Chen. The solution to the problem was quickly received. I wish to test this out on a budget for a client.

I installed the first of many access systems, and I will definitely purchase from this company again. They are always there for support. Everyone is very pleased. Thank you for the great product and even better support.

There are pictures and wiring diagrams to help you setup your doors and readers. We needed to understand how to have two readers operate one door. The vendor sent back a picture of how to do it, and the link to the diodes needed to be wired into the lines. I purchased the items, and wired them in. I have everything working now. The software is quite difficult to use, but it helps us track times much more easily than a device that is lacking, for example, door entry and exit. The system works well and is much more affordable than the one we had in our previous office. We got a glass door attachment, also, for the lock, and it worked with this system fine. We were able to use the door striker locks, which were already on the doors. The answer to the two reader question was 'A+ for the help that BRs and Wood Chen gave me.

I purchased this as an update to a less featured lock that I previously installed that finally failed to work, not by the same manufacturer. This lock does everything well, but you better be aware of how to troubleshoot and admit that it is your door and not this sophisticated equipment. After I seemingly installed the lock correctly, and set it up with an administrator profile and was met with some serious malfunction. I was able to get the admin account up and connected to the app and was very confused as to why this thing was operating unusually. I was confused upon first sight and contacted customer service who arrived to assist me. We concluded that there must be a problem with the deadbolt latch not working properly due to the way it was sitting in my door. We determined this through a series of pictures and videos I took and shared with them. I did some wood filling and positioning for the latch assembly because I did not want to return this thing. After reinstalling, the device worked better, but was still acting strange. Customer service again came through with another video showing actual operation compared to what was going on with mine. Putting the spindle in the deadbolt slot will reveal that it works, and that the door is the problem. I will save you a lot of trouble by showing you potential issues. Ensure the deadbolt latch assembly is not crammed into the door to ensure it is positioned correctly for this device to work. The box strike, or possibly the hole where the deadbolt comes into when engaged in the lock position, was ultimately the issue causing the malfunction due to the deadbolt not being extended fully thus causing the sensors in the device to detect an improper installation. After digging out a proper hole for the deadbolt to slide into my device now works as intended and is seriously awesome. I hope this helps and that you enjoy this lock, as I am now.

I really enjoy this lock. It is well worth the money, fairly easy to install and use considering the technology. I never get locked out, nor do I need to give my keys to my children. This lock is a highly recommendable purchase. I wish it was wifi connected to a smart system. But that model is not available at this time.

I really like the design, because it is extremely classy. The lock had to drill a small hole for the crew first. I returned the items online. Please wait until I watch the video to obtain the instructions. The lock is easy to install. I do love it so much, that I cancelled the return. Fingerprint, App and Keypads work very well. I recommend this item.

My husband installed this unit with ease and it easily recognizes my fingerprint. I will definitely buy it again and recommend it to friends.

Buyer's Guide

How To Choose The Best Key Card Door Lock

Keycard doors have become increasingly common as they offer convenience and security. However, choosing the right keycard door lock can be tricky. This article aims to help you make the right choice by explaining what you need to think about before purchasing a new door lock.

What Is A Key Card Door Lock?

Keycard doors are an easy way for people to gain access into a building without having to carry keys around. They work like traditional keyed locks but instead of using a physical key, users insert a plastic card into a slot at the front of the door. The card contains information about the person who has been granted access to enter the building.

Why Would I Want A Key Card Door Lock?

The main advantage of a key card door lock is that it eliminates the need for carrying keys around. It makes it easier for people to get into buildings because there is no longer any need to search through pockets or purses for keys. If someone tries to open a locked door with a fake ID, the system will immediately alert the guard and prevent him/her from entering the area.

Who Needs A Key Card Door Lock?

Key cards are a great way to secure your home while keeping your keys handy. But, did you know that key cards can do more than just open doors? They can unlock other things around the house too.

They can be programmed to turn lights on and off. They can activate garage door openers. And they can even allow you to use certain appliances remotely. All this makes them a smart security solution for homes.

But, how does one program a key card? How do you set up remote controls? What happens if someone else uses your key card? These questions are answered below.

The process of programming a key card is pretty simple. First, you'll need to download the software for your key card system. Then, you'll insert the card into the reader. Finally, you'll enter the code that you want to assign to the card. Once you do this, the card will become active.

This process works for any type of key card. However, you'll need to pay attention to which kind of card you're using. Some key cards only work with specific brands of readers. Others are compatible with multiple types of readers.

Once you've entered the code, you'll see a confirmation screen appear. Now, you can remove the card from the reader.

When someone else tries to use your key card, the system will ask them for permission before allowing them access. If they say yes, then the card will work fine. Otherwise, the system will prompt them to reenter the correct code.

However, if they refuse to answer, then the system will assume that the person has lost their key card. At this point, the system will disable the card until it's returned.

In addition to these features, key cards can also be used to gain access to restricted areas. For instance, they can let you into a gym locker room. Or they can open a gate to a pool area.

These are just a couple examples of the many ways that key cards can be useful. Of course, there are many others.

The Importance Of Purchasing A Quality Key Card Door Lock

Key cards have become increasingly popular because they offer convenience and security. They provide easy access to homes, offices, and other buildings. Unfortunately, key cards aren't perfect. There are many different types of key cards available. This makes it difficult to find one that meets your needs. For example, if you want a simple key card system, you may not be able to find one that offers the features you desire. On the other hand, if you want a complex key card system, you'll probably end up paying a premium price for something that doesn't meet your needs.

Look for a key card system that provides multiple locking points. A single point of failure can compromise the security of your home or office. Make sure that your key card system includes at least two locking points. You should also ensure that the locking points are located where you expect them to be. For instance, if you plan to use your key card system to secure your garage, make sure that the locking points are located near the entrance to your garage.

Consider the size of your building. Do you live in a small apartment? Or do you work in a large warehouse? If so, you may not need a complicated key card system. Instead, you might prefer a simpler key card system that allows you to open doors remotely. If you live in a larger house, however, you may need a key card system that offers additional security measures such as deadbolt locks.

Think about how often you enter your building. Will you be entering your building frequently? If so, you may want to invest in a key card system that offers remote access. Remote access means that you won't have to carry keys whenever you leave your building. Instead, you can simply press a button to unlock doors and windows.

Make sure that your key card system is compatible with any existing hardware. If you already have a doorbell, you may want to purchase a key card system that works with your current doorbell.

Features To Consider When Buying A Key Card Door Lock

Security features. The first step toward securing your property is installing a keycard door lock. But if you've ever tried using a keycard lock, you know how frustrating they can be. That's why you'll want to take these factors into consideration when shopping for a new lock.

Keycard security. Most keycard locks work just fine, but there are times when you may want more security than a simple keycard provides. For instance, you might want to add a deadbolt lock to your front door, or install a panic bar to protect against intruders.

Easy installation. Installing a keycard lock isn't difficult, but it does require some tools. Before purchasing a lock, check to see if the manufacturer sells kits that include everything you need to complete the job. This could save you time and money.

Accessibility. Some keycard locks are accessible only from the inside of the house. Others allow you to unlock them from both sides. Make sure the lock you select allows you to do this. Also, ensure that the lock has a keypad on the outside of the door so you can easily enter your code even while wearing gloves.

Reliability. How often do you lose your keys? Do you worry about someone breaking into your home and stealing your valuables? These questions are important when selecting a lock. Check online reviews to learn if other customers have had problems with their locks.

Cost. While many manufacturers sell their locks at low cost, others charge higher prices. Shop around to compare pricing on different models. You might also want to look for deals or discounts to help you save money.

Quality. Don't settle for anything less than quality when you're buying a keycard lock. Choose a lock made from solid metal instead of plastic and opt for a model with a sturdy design. If you plan to resell your home, you'll want to invest in a lock that looks great and feels durable.

Different Types Of Key Card Door Lock

Key Card Door Locks are becoming increasingly popular due to their ease of use and security features. A key card system allows users to open doors without having to remember keys.

There are two main types of key card door locks; magnetic and electronic. Magnetic locks are the older version of key card door locks. They consist of a small magnet attached to the door frame. When the correct key card is inserted into the lock, the magnet attracts the metal strip embedded in the card. Electronic locks are newer models that utilize radio frequency technology. When the chip is scanned, the door opens.

Magnetic locks are inexpensive and easy to install. However, they are easily defeated by cutting through the metal strips. Cutting through the metal strips requires nothing more than a pair of scissors. An intruder could simply cut the strips off the door and walk right in. Electronic locks are less susceptible to tampering. They are also more secure since they require a special scanner to unlock the door. The cost of installing an electronic lock is significantly higher than a magnetic lock. However, the increased security makes up for the extra expense.

The following video shows how to defeat a magnetic lock. Watch closely as someone cuts through the metal strips.


Frequently Asked Questions About: Key Card Door Lock
