Does anyone know of a latch or deadbolt that opens automatically w/ a swipe of a finger? I'm buying a house, in the master bedroom behind the walk in closet is a smaller room that I'm planning on turning into a gun room(gun safe). I want a lock on the door that when I scan my finger will just pop open. Anyone know of a good lock that can do this>?

I know you asked about biometrics, but why not a Simplex Door Lock.

No key to lose, super quick to open.

Simplex aren't particularly secure.

1081 combinations on a Simplex is fairly small, true. But at 1 every 2 seconds, that's 36 minutes to try the whole set. On a large population of locks, one would expect that to average out to about half that. A bored child might be a significant risk, more than a burglar.

Some of the other 10 key versions might go up to a million possible (but practical considerations drop that some).

Simplex aren't particularly secure.

Neither is the door. The lock is perfectly adequate for a common door. Your not building a vault.

Biometrics seem slick, but the more I look at them, the more finicky they seem.

TKM was being a bit reserved with his comment. Google 'simplex lock lawsuit'. :eek: Learn something new every day ... I didn't know about that before my first response.
