It seems like everything is turning “smart” these days and that includes padlocks.
If you’re always misplacing the keys or fumbling to remember the combination to your padlock, then you probably need TappLock in your life. Just like on most high-end smartphones these days, this high-tech padlock can be unlocked with something unique to you – your fingerprints.
Simply place your finger on the sensor and the padlock should unlock in 0.8 seconds. No keys or combination codes necessary. It even has a built-in alarm so that if anyone attempts to force it open, TappLock will set off an alarm to let you know your valuables are in danger.
What if someone else needs access to your lock? TappLock comes with an app for iOS, Android, and Windows that lets you grant access to whomever you wish. You can store up to 100 fingerprints and even set how much time other users have access to that padlock.
TappLock is water resistant and can even act as a mini power bank.
It also has a little brother called the TappLock Lite meant for securing bags and other smaller compartments. It’s everything the TappLock is except being a mini phone charger.
TappLock is an Indiegogo project that seeks to raise $40,000 in funding. As of this writing it has 230 backers have pledged more than 94% of its goal. They have a little over 20 days to reach their target. If you want one, make sure you back them up.
