In order to prevent password leakage, Yale Electronic Lock has developed a virtual password function, that is, before or after the registered password, you can enter a string of meaningless digits as a dummy password. This will prevent people around you from having a chance to peek at the password.
If a wrong PIN code/ fingerprint/ smart card is entered for 5 consecutive times, the smart lock will shut down for 3 minutes and cannot be operated. This is a function to prevent vandalism. All Yale electronic locks are equipped with this feature.

The fingerprint sensor of Yale Digital Lock uses a scanning method to read the fingerprint. The scanning sensor does not recognize the whole fingerprint, but recognizes a part of the fingerprint image. When the user's finger and the sensor strip move in a right angle direction, the fingerprint image is recognized several times, and the identified fingerprint image fragments are returned to the original fingerprint image according to the restoration algorithm. This method is more difficult to leave residual fingerprints than optical fingerprints, so it is safer.
