What Not to Do with A Fingerprint Lock

In the biometric business you tend to get asked many questions concerning which lock would be best for a home, what you can expect from a lock, and occasionally if you can enroll an elephants ear.

I have here a list of What Not to Do with your fingerprint lock:

  1. Don’t jump on your lock. This should be self explanatory but at fraternity parties the idea may start to sound fun.
  2. Don’t try to enroll your dog. Many biometric products are not made to give entrance based on a paw print.
  3. Don’t scan chocolate covered fingers. When your fingers are dirty it’s hard for the biometric scan to match your clean fingers when they were enrolled. Plus you will get your pretty lock really dirty.
  4. Slamming your finger in the scanner cover will really hurt. Just be careful.
  5. Spray painting your lock will most likely void the warranty. If you prefer a bright orange lock then just make sure you ask the company you are purchasing from about there warranty terms.

Lets go ahead and go into what you should do with your lock:

  1. Do scan your fingers when they are clean.
  2. Keep your fingers moist by using lotion.
  3. May be a good idea to enroll your mother-in-law with an ID. (Easier to delete a user with an ID rather than factory defaulting the whole thing.)
  4. When you hear a low battery alert, change the batteries as soon as you can.
  5. Tell all your friends about www.FingerprintDoorLocks.com

I sure hope this was helpful.
