ODI Security uses Servocells<br> AL2 in mobile lock
ODI Security is using Servocells AL2 in its prototype mobile lock with fingerprint recognition.
"This is a breakthrough in the use of Active Latch technology in a component for locks designed for the consumer market. Biometrics is recognised as a hugely important development in security and combined with the low power needs of the Active Latch, becomes a reality for many locks that will make the consumer's life simpler – bicycle locks that read your fingerprint, for instance, will be a blessing to any cyclist who knows the problems of lost keys after a ride", Servocell's CEO Simon Powell, told EETimes. "The low power requirement of Active Latch enables us to put the benefits of biometric technology into small locks such as padlocks or trigger locks for the first time", Rich Slevin, managing director, ODI Security, told EETimes.
