Foothill Ranch, Calif. – CES 2021 – Hampton Products, a leading innovator in security products, has announced the availability of new BenjiLock By Hampton® deadbolts designed for home exterior and interior door use. Using the state-of-the-art fingerprint sensor technology developed for the popular BenjiLock® padlock line, the BenjiLock By Hampton® Fingerprint Door Lock brings security to your fingertips by integrating the biometric sensor that quickly scans a fingerprint with Hampton’s highly secure deadbolt design.
The Fingerprint Door Lock can be opened three ways: by using its fingerprint sensor, by entering owner-programmed numeric codes on a secure digital keypad, and by traditional metal key. It was specifically designed to operate without the need for Wi-Fi or Bluetooth, and provides homes, apartments and vacation rentals with a turnkey solution that is not dependent on network availability or external power for access.
“Many consumers want a next-generation keyless door lock, but are wary of connecting it to Wi-Fi or Bluetooth,” said Kim Kelley, president and CEO of Hampton Products. “We combined the innovative BenjiLock fingerprint sensor technology with our industry-best security hardware to develop a high-tech deadbolt that homeowners can control without an app or home network. Consumers can install the BenjiLock By Hampton Door Lock on virtually any door inside or outside the home – putting the key at their fingertips.”
The BenjiLock By Hampton Fingerprint Door Lock stores 10 fingerprints and 25 user codes, with setup done directly on the deadbolt after installation (no software or Wi-Fi needed). User codes are entered on an illuminated capacitive touchscreen on the deadbolt’s front face; a clearing code randomizes the digits each time, eliminating the ability for someone to recognize the numeric pattern. Easy to install and program, the ANSI Grade 2, die-cast zinc deadbolt is pick-resistant, bump-resistant and drill-resistant, and powered by a set of four 4 AA Duracell® batteries (supplied).
Available in Tuscan Bronze® and satin nickel finishes, the BenjiLock By Hampton Fingerprint Door Lock has a $159 suggested retail price and can be purchased directly at www.buyhampton.com.
The Fingerprint Door Lock is part of the growing BenjiLock By Hampton portfolio of products, originally envisioned by inventor Robbie Cabral to make it easier to access your belongings. The fingerprint padlock prototype originally seen on ABC’s “Shark Tank” was brought to market by Hampton Products, a trusted leader in security products. The family of products now includes the original 43mm Fingerprint Padlock, the Fingerprint Travel Lock, the Fingerprint Bike Lock, and the 35mm Fingerprint Sport Lock.
