You already have the fingerprint reader in your phone... or Face ID. You can use them to log in to the app if you need additional security. But getting back to the point, we do not plan to make a fingerprint reader... you can use existing readers if you integrate them using our API... you can try Ekey with LOXONE: https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=3461976177189510
You have a fingerprint reader in your Android... or FaceID in your iPhone... We do not copy/paste NUKI (with all due respect). As for the hardware, we plan the keypad.
When is the keypad comming??
I have just purchased Tedee keypad and although I am happy with it, I would still support the feature request for fingerprint reader (maybe to add it to keypad with one of the future releases if feasible?)
The use cases from my perspecitve are:
- kids or elderly people
- no need to remember PIN
- discharged phone
Yes, I am aware that current keypad hardware is not able to support it. I was thinking about idea to include it in future keypad model.
Regarding alternative option to use NFC dongle instead:
To me the fingerprint still has an important advantage for the use cases I described - your finger is something that is not easy to get lost :-)
Hey, there is no fingerprint
You don't want to copy Nuki, but you gotta admit: The new Keypad is pretty nice, though.
"We still believe the smartphone, the keypad and the key are the three most commonly used devices to lock and unlock your door."
If no one would have invented the keypad or smartlock the most commonly used device to lock and unlock a door would be a key. Do you notice something? ;) If nobody is selling it, no one can and will buy it. And I do believe that more and more people are using/looking/open for fingerprint since they do know it from smartphones nowadays.
I almost forgot: But it would be nice to activate NFC on the current one, before you bring out a fingerprint keypad next month. The latter has time til May (just because Tedee seems to get confused all the time what an "alright" timeframe is from a customers point of view...).
