REVIEW – A few years ago I installed smart locks on the 2 doors in my office. One on the main door and one on a closet door in the room. I really like the lock on the door in the office, but it has a unique cylindrical design and now that I have developed arthritis in my dominant right hand, it is painful to open. So now I am looking for a replacement smart lock that works like t conventional door handle. Enter the Elemake Bluetooth Smart Biometric Door Lock with Keypad.
What is it?
The Elemake Fingerprint Door Handle with Keypad is a Smart Biometric Door Lock with access via Fingerprint, Bluetooth, Keys, and an APP. It is also Auto-Locking.
What’s in the box?
- 1 x Elemake Bluetooth Smart Biometric Door Lock with Keypad
- 1 x Hardware Mounting Kit
- 1 x User Manual
Design and features
The Elemake Bluetooth Smart Biometric Door Lock with Keypad is made of metal and has a touch keypad and biometric touchpad on the outer handle. There is also a micro USB port on the edge of this handle to provide power from a USB power bank should the installed batteries die. On the inner handle, there is the battery panel and the unlock button. There is also a hole for pin reset. The connectivity wire runs through the center of the lock.
The installation of this Elemake Bluetooth Smart Biometric Door Lock with Keypad is very easy and the process is just like any conventional lock. Here is how the process went:
This Elemake Bluetooth Smart Biometric Door Lock with Keypad performs very well. All methods of access work well and provide quick access. The lock is solid and the movement is fluid. The blue light is the “ok” indicator and the red light is the “denied/timeout” indicator.
Smart Life App:
What I like
- It is sold and well built
- It really is a smart but conventional design
- The multiple ways to open the lock
- IMO it is attractive
- Easy to install
- Adding the lock to the app and programming is the simplest I have ever experienced.
What I’d change
- Nothing to really complain about other than the small writing in the manual
The Elemake Bluetooth Smart Biometric Door Lock with Keypad is a really nice smart lock that is well-built and just works well. It offers multiple ways to open it and is really convenient and secure. I am not using it outdoors so I can’t speak about its durability when left to the mercy of the elements. From my experience, I give this smart like a well done!!
