Sequiam BioLock provides security for ordinary homes

updated 09:45 am EDT, Wed October 18, 2006

Sequiam BioLock

The biometrics firm Sequiam recently launched a uniquely accessible fingerprint security system. Where most of these locks are part of large-scale networks, the new BioLock is designed to be used on almost any door -- including homes, says the company. Instead of connecting to a central server, the lock is controlled by an LCD panel on its secure side that can register as many as 50 different visitors. Sequiam has also taken care to make the outside as inconspicuous as possible. When not in use, the outside lock resembles only a standard Black and Decker deadbolt lock (physical backup keys are provided); users press their fingers against a hidden reader along the side to gain access. The BioLock is available now for $249, putting the system within reach of most homeowners.
