Forget about keeping a key for your padlocks, says hardware distributor VBH. Mirage is a robust, short shackle padlock that uses fingerprint recognition, rather than a key, for locking and unlocking.
Operation is very quick, with an average recognition time of half a second. As well as the convenience of not needing a key, Mirage can be programmed with up to 20 fingerprints, so is ideal in situations where many users need access.
Power is provided by a simple charge via a USB socket that is protected by a rubber cover when not in use. Depending on how often the padlock is used, a single charge will typically last for approximately 200 days.
When the charge is running low, a beep will sound. An LED around the fingerprint pad will also illuminate. Setting up users is very simple, says VBH, and doesn’t require a computer connection.
The first three users to be set up are classed as admins. An admin is then required to set up further users. All users can be easily deleted by an admin, using the setting needle provided. Full instructions are provided with each product.
