Ola: World’s First Keyless Fingerprint Smart Lock Launches Crowdfunding Campaign


The thought of “Smart Homes” have always revolved on having your smartphone or tablet as your universal remote control. While we haven’t even reached mass adoption with that technology yet, there are already companies that are making products that won’t rely anymore on wireless connections of your smartphone or tablet. One of the first we’ve seen that has potential is a the world’s first keyless Fingerprint Smart Lock, Ola.

How does it work? Very simple. Just let the system know how many users are, scan their fingerprints, and boom you’re ready to go. People just have to put their thumb on the scanner and if all goes well the door will unlock and it will let that registered person in. It also comes with an app that you can use for your smartphone but you don’t really need it to get the system to work.

Here’s a short video of Ola in action:

If you want one the bad news is that you’ll have to wait. It’s still under a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter so we don’t really know if this will even see the light of day. However given that this has so much potential we have a feeling that in around a year or two we’ll finally see this available in the market.
