Kwikset Keyless Fingerprint Scan Door Lock

Kwikset Keyless Fingerprint Scan Door Lock

We're not completely convinced this is any safer than a traditional lock (especially compared to an unbumpable model), but we're kinda partial to the idea of having one less key on our keychain and replacing at least one of our front door locks with this biometric deadbolt that can read your fingerprint even if they're dirty...

The Kwikset SmartScan is an ANSI Grade-1 deadbolt with a fingerprint scanner, allowing keyless entry for up to 50 of our closest approved users and at specific times (perfect for times when service/help or guests arrive). Worried you'll somehow get locked out if the scanner fails? There's a key backup too, so you can rest those nerves. Available from Home Depot for $199, making this one pricey lock (but one we'd happily like for our own place).
