Can A Non-Connectivity Approach Work For A Smart Home?
The recently concluded CES 2021 had many manufacturers boasting about their latest products. BenjiLock By Hampton caught the fans’ attention by showcasing its non-connectivity fingerprint door lock. There are no Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, or NFC components put inside the lock. There is no software attached to the lock and hence, no software updates. There is only one fingerprint sensor on device and the company believes that the fingerprints are the only thing that is required to open a lock.
There are a few drawbacks of using this lock as well. In case you need to give access to a guest, then it makes it quite difficult to add a fingerprint to the lock as there is no app connectivity for the lock. The lock also does not communicate with other smart home devices.
For devices like the padlock and the bike lock, both of which will probably be far away from connectivity when they’re in use, a lack of app connectivity makes perfect sense.
Though this device is not connected with the internet, this still qualifies under the smart category as it does the job it is supposed to do perfectly.
