CES2020: In a first for homeowners, Hampton Products has merged the innovative BenjiLock By Hampton® fingerprint-unlocking technology initially deployed in padlocks with hardware expertise learned from decades creating security solutions to create a new line of exterior deadbolts that use your fingerprint as a key.
Easy to install and program, BenjiLock By Hampton deadbolts combine convenience and high-end security for a versatile door lock that fits your preferences: Beyond fingerprints, users can unlock these deadbolts via app, user codes or traditional key.
The innovative deadbolt is being offered in two styles and three formats:
- The BenjiLock By Hampton Livia™ Deadbolt is available in two formats – one with Connected Home capability for use with home Wi-Fi (no smart hub needed), and a Non-Connected Home version for standalone applications including outbuildings, cabins, vacation rentals or areas with limited Wi-Fi resources.
- The BenjiLock By Hampton Luca™ Deadbolt is a non-connected version that has been named a 2020 CES Innovation Award Honoree in the Smart Home product category.
All BenjiLock By Hampton Livia and Luca models feature a Grade 2 deadbolt that is pick-resistant, bump-resistant and drill-resistant. Powered by 4 AA Duracell batteries (included), the deadbolts can each store up to 10 fingerprints and 25 user codes for owners to provide home access to family and friends. A touch keypad with clearing code has been designed to randomize digits and minimize/remove use patterns.
The Connected Home deadbolt features the ability to control the lock via mobile device through the Array By Hampton® app with multi-point encrypted security between app, cloud and deadbolt, and also works with Amazon Echo, Google Assistant™, and Siri® and Apple® widget. The free Array By Hampton app enables owners to share user codes, set access times, get notifications when door is locked/unlocked, view activity logs and enable geofencing to activate the lock with a tap on a phone or tablet.
Available in Tuscan Bronze®, satin nickel and matte black, BenjiLock By Hampton Livia and Luca deadbolt prices range from $139 to $229.
