Fingerprint door locks are an incredible digital creation. You don’t have to deal with the hassle of keys. You don’t have to remember any codes. You don’t have to do anything. You just have to put your finger on it and the lock’s open. This is one of the best ways to keep unwanted people away from places they are not wanted. Widely used in homes and offices, fingerprint door locks come as an expensive gadget but are worth the use.
The following article lists the best fingerprint door locks you can find in the market today.
10. ZKTeco Fingerprint Door Lock ($199.98)
This is ZKTeco’s OLED keyless biometric door lock system. The unit measures 128*64 1.54″ and has an integrated system to display the battery charge, time, date and unlocking records. The unit can support 500 fingerprints and 30000 door open logs. You can also browse unlocking records offline. It also provides special privileges to the administrator such as accessing the history. Regular users cannot do that. The handle, latch and strike are reversible for use with all doors. Easy installation and features and electric clutch handle design which help effectively prevent the FP lock failure caused by damage to the internal structure as a result of the forced destruction of the handle.
“Arrived in 6 days. I bought this for my parents as a gift for house warming party. I didn’t install it yet. Two things I don’t like so far: 1. It looks like you need to drill a small hole in the door for the wire to go through. 2. It’s not waterproof. So if you don’t have a storm door, I wouldn’t recommend it. The things I like: fast fingerprint reading, build quality, design and functionality. Perfect for the office, hotels and some houses/apartments. I’ll update after installation.” – Amazon’s Customer Review.
9. Assa Abloy Digi Fingerprint Door Lock ($69.99)
This is Assa Abloy Digi’s Smart security keyless door lock. You can code or use a key to avoid using the fingerprint entry part. This unit is ANSI Grade2 CE certified and has a reversible door handle to change to whatever you are requiring. The working temperature as given by manufacturers is -30C to 70C. Easy to install. Highly recommended.
“It’s a heavy duty door lock. It does come with a core (the part where the key goes) and two key blanks. Works perfect for foster care, and having a locking office.” – Amazon’s Customer Review.
8. Barska Fingerprint Door Lock ($138.49)
This is Barska’s biometric door lock with a reversible handle. Do-it-yourself installation and no other power tools are required. You can access it via fingerprint, key and through the small keypad. The package comes with a front plate (including rubber gasket), a back plate (including rubber gasket), tubular latch mortise, strike plate, strike box, two mechanical keys, installation guide and four AA batteries. The unit looks extremely fancy but the handle is plastic, so you have to be careful. Two little con: No way to turn down sounds and the password must be 11 digits.
7. Trinity Fingerprint Door Lock ($124.95)
This is Adel Trinity’s reversible handle fingerprint door lock. The unit has three available methods including fingerprint, keypad and key. The construction of the knob is good, and the instructions are pretty straight forward. If you face any difficulty, refer to its tutorial on youtube. A good buy!
“Love this product, working flawlessly for me so far. I like that you have the hidden key backup, which is not all that easy to use for someone who is unfamiliar with it, considering the key is not removable in the unlock position which prevents the handle from being placed back onto the assembly until it’s returned to the locked position. Also, even if someone knows, guesses, or reads the backup code from anywhere in the building, entering the code is not as simple as simply entering the numbers, and can be a bit time consuming. A positive to me since you want the easiest trouble free means of using your fingerprint to be the primary mode of operation and any backup work around to be a bit more tedious. I will say that someone in the building has a difficult time with this lock, but I suspect that anyone doing a lot of woodwork, sanding projects without gloves (in effect sanding down their fingerprints) would have this same problem with any biometric device that uses fingerprints.” – Amazon’s Customer Review.
6. Adel Fingerprint Door Lock ($119.99)
This is Adel’s keyless biometric fingerprint door lock helping you find a secure and flexible entry solution. This Adel Trinity system supports three types of entries: fingerprints, pin codes and a key. The unit is guaranteed to fit almost any door, and installation is a breeze requiring only a screwdriver. It runs on 4 AA batteries.
“Very solid feel to this. I had some difficulty reading the instructions. “Press 1 for master fingerprint user group.” and lots of things like this in the instructions. Once I sorted through this, it got easier. All tools needed for the installation were included along with a set of keys for emergency use if needed.” – Amazon’s Customer Review.
5. Ardwolf Fingerprint Door Lock ($155.88)
This is Ardwolf’s keyless biometric fingerprint door lock. You can unlock the unit from three different ways, i.e., fingerprint, user key and key. It can support up to 100 fingerprints hence has 100 simultaneous users available. The auto-inductive sensor scans your finger while the random protection allows you to add numbers before and after the password for further security. You can unlock the door actively using the passage mode. The latest 3000 unlocks can be recorded by a software. Available in both right as well as left hands.
“Great, best on Amazon!
The back panel has a tiny screw, which I lost almost immediately. Also, the back panel doesn’t have a way to be removed easily since it’s seamless with the rest of the handle. I had to put a piece of tape on it and pull the tape to get it off. I eventually cut a tiny 0.25″ corner of the back panel, so I had a place to pull with my finger. Still the best on Amazon.” – Amazon’s Customer Review.
4. iTouchless Fingerprint Door Lock ($218.46)
This is iTouchless bio-matic fingerprint door lock for the left hand. You can add up to 150 fingerprint users and scan the same finger at different angles to increase the scanning accuracy.

The unit is also resistant to water. It has easy installation and works great in cold weather too.
“I am so happy I bought this lock. I’m using it in my garage, and it works so wonderfully. I hardly ever have misreads on my fingerprint, and it was easy to install. It works well in the cold weather too. It locks automatically when closed, and it’s just amazing. I had originally purchased the August Smart Lock and was so unhappy with the way it didn’t respond and took forever to load up, but this is definitely what I needed. I would recommend this. The only downside is that if you are going to use a code it has to be eight digits from 0-3, but the fingerprint option has been working just great for me.” – Amazon’s Customer Review.
3. Samsung Fingerprint Door Lock ($449.00)
This is Samsung’s digital door lock with a fingerprint push and pull. You can also add a user access code with 4-12 digit combination. The lock’s thickness is 30-80mm and works on 6V AA alkaline batteries. You can store in a maximum of 100 fingerprints in there. Your door must have at least 5 inches of flat space from the edge of the door. The installation manual comes with it, but you also need to work out many things yourself.
“I like this product, It took me 7 hours to install it, now it works perfect, the installation manual does work, but you need to guess many things to fix it, easy to operate and pretty fancy!! I like the fact I do not use any key to enter the house; it has a fingerprint mode, password mode, key tag mode, and regular key; I just use the fingerprint mode, the one I like the most.” – Amazon’s Customer Review.
2. Samsung Fingerprint Door Lock ($329.97)
This is Samsung’s newest version of digital door lock with keyless and touch-pad entry. The unit has a smart automatic sliding cover and wide touchpad screen. In the case of emergency, you can use a key to enter as well. You can save 100 fingerprints and one access code. The fingerprint reader is easy to use and looks sleek. Registering new fingerprints is a breeze. Installation might not be very explicit so you can always contact your vendor for installation or someone who know his/her way around power tools well.
“Great product. No longer do I fumble in my pockets to find a key to my door. So far the product survived a boiling summer with full sun exposure in the afternoon and continued to work without any problems on the same battery for half a year now. I must say installation was a bit of a hassle. Luckily I got a lot if help from my family with that. They used power tools and drilled additional holes in my door to install this lock. The jingle sounds are a nice safety feature if the door is left ajar to remind you to shut it properly. The door closes behind you whether you are coming and going. It has made my life easier, and I would recommend it as long as you have power tools and know how to use them to install this Samsung lock.” – Amazon’s Customer Review.
1. Ardwolf Fingerprint Door Lock ($129.99)
This is Ardwolf’s keyless, fingerprint reader door lock. There are five ways to unlock the door, i.e., fingerprint, user code, mechanical key and two dual-verification modes (code & fingerprint, fingerprint & fingerprint.) The unit has a capacity of 100 prints and 100 user codes and can easily work for multi-user. There is an integrated built-in touch sensor for one-touch unlock. The handle can be adjusted for both rights as well as left-handers. The passage support mode stays open and can be disabled instantaneously using any user code or fingerprint(recognised.)
“For a fingerprint device, it’s excellent. I feel like this is still a relatively new technology, and the lock does a fair job. I can get it to unlock on the first try, most every time. The only time it doesn’t work right away, is if my hands are really dry. The explain in the instructions that dry or dirty hands can keep it from reading your print correctly, which only makes sense. The fingerprint has a little delay, while it scans your print, but it’s faster than digging for a key or punching in a four-digit code plus the # sign to enter the code. I do like this unit, and it gets used daily. I would give it five stars if fingerprint recognition were a little faster.” – Amazon’s Customer Review.
