Thumb Lock / Door Lock

Thumb Lock
Thumb Lock

Thumb Lock enables you to lock and unlock the door in just two steps as you always do. You naturally open your thumb when holding the door handle. Thumb Lock has a fingerprint recognizer which is located on which your thumb is placed while preserving the form of current door handle without unwieldy installation. You can lock and unlock the door much faster and easier than the conventional digital door lock. You are also free from forgetting and seeking the key. Thumb Lock is harmonious with the environment and reduces the attempts made by trespassers. With just ‘grab’ and ‘turn’, you can enjoy safety, speed, and convenience.
