Fingerprint Door Knocker / Door Handle

Fingerprint Door Knocker

As early as the Han Dynasty, China began to use this kind of handle. A ring-shaped handle can be used to open the door, and you can also use the handle to knock the base instead of knocking by hand, equivalent to a modern doorbell. In ancient times, the Chinese used to make the bases in the shape of animals, symbolizing happiness and harmony. This design, by combining the traditional door handle with modern science and technology, cleverly incorporates the three functions of "fingerprint unlocking", "opening the door" and "doorbell" which are commonly used in the modern door, thus enabling this door lock to have better user experience.
