The TAPP lock comes in two forms. These two forms differ from each other both in their makes and the services they provide.
One is a beefy version which has an incredible 3 year battery life and also doubles as a portable battery charger.
The second one is a much smaller version than the first and has only a six month battery life and sadly isn’t a portable phone charger. Both still have amazing features. Just imagine charging your padlock instead of greasing the key hole (which can be a bit messy especially for someone with very unsteady hands like me).
To get the padlock up and running and ready to serve you with it’s life, all you have to do is set it up. You can easily do this with the help of your smart phone (be it Windows, Android or an iOS). All you have to do is download it’s app, get your details and prints in and use it to the fullest.
Tapplock reviews 2: How does the TappLock Work?
After setting it up on your smart phone, the TAPP lock sensors are programmed to respond only to your fingerprints and any other prints you program to it.
Did I mention it can’t store up to 200 fingerprints?
Yes it can and can also be unlocked by any one of them at any point which they use it. Also, when the sensors read the fingerprints keyed in, it only takes about 0.8 seconds for the padlock to unlock. If you aren’t one to place your fingers on just anything, fret not for the TAPP lock app also allows you to unlock the padlock using your phone and also simultaneously share entry with other users.
Another Amazing Tapp Lock review
Another amazing revelation about the TAPP lock is that you do not have to place your finger for too long on the padlock for it to read your prints.
Apparently, all you have to do is tap it and voila it’s open in under a second. It works like magic, although it isn’t. Remember, you do not need keys to open this padlock, you fingers take the place of the keys. Apparently, every one in the world has a unique fingerprint so the TAPP responds to only yours and whoever else’s you give access to. It could just be yours and 199 other prints. Works well for large organizations don’t you think?
About the TAPP lock sensor, the lock makes use of cutting edge encrypted fingerprint sensor which as explained above works immediately a fingerprint is keyed in just under a second (0.8 seconds to be precise). That’s not just all there is to the TAPP lock. When the padlock is forced open by intruders, it’s built-in alarm is triggered immediately and blasts off, hopefully scaring the intruders away from the scene. That’s another thing the padlock you’ve got already can’t do. The more reason you should get a TAPP lock and enhance the security of your property.

If you’re worried about its ability to be outdoors during the rainy season, the TAPP lock is certainly water resistant.
This simply means that it can be safely left outside in the rain and it wouldn’t affect its quality. It is also very long lasting, just imagine charging your padlock battery and having it last for a total of 6 months or even 3 years. Believe me that’s something. The beefy version possesses a lithium polymer battery that will last up to three years after being charged once. The other version which s allied the TappLock Lite has a replaceable battery instead that will work from the time it is charged till 6 months.
Also, there is more to your ability to grant access to the padlock to more people. It could even be at their request. When giving access to them, you possess the ability to customize the time of access, the location and also the duration of access. This makes it easy for you to still maintain full control over whatever lies behind the locked door. This is because everyone can only gain access when you want them to and also based on the limit you give to them. The lock also sends you notifications via Bluetooth to your smartphone based on whoever accessed the locks and also whatever seems important for you to know. If that doesn’t spell maximum security, I don’t know what does.
Everything else you should know about the TAPP lock is its unbearable durability. It is forged with Zamak 3 zinc alloy metal body and possesses cut-resistant 7mm stainless steel shackle, double-layered Lock design with anti-shim and anti-pry capabilities which makes it virtually unbreakable. The TAPP lock is manufactured by Pishon Labs.
How Fingerprint Locks Work:
With the advancement of technology, a lot of things aren’t what they used to be. Nowadays, living is much easier as the things around us do not so much effort to get them running as they did before. Believe me, pretty soon, keys would go out of vogue (they have already, slowly). People find it easier to unlock doors or their phones and other gadgets with their fingerprints than the mundane way we were introduced to.

When it comes to locks, fingerprint sensors have proven both easier and more reliable. This because there is no danger of losing or misplacing your fingers or even forgetting them anywhere. They are always with you. This ensures more security because your prints are unique to only you and your locks won’t budge for any other.
Now this is how the fingerprint lock works, it’s so much more than tapping or placing your lock sensor to be scanned and converted to a numerical template. When your finger is placed on the scanner, first off, your prints are converted to numerical data and the fingerprint template is saved. This happens when you save your prints into it and also whenever you grant other people access to the locks. Their fingerprints templates are also saved.
The reason for saving them is so, when next your finger is placed on the scanner, the data which your prints provided previously are accessed and if they match, the locks easily become open to you. Whoever tries to get into the lock and doesn’t have his prints locked in, they can not gain access to it. Also, the mutinia matching process is used to match the algorithms and this is a very important process.
Here, several mutinia points are identified and located on your finger’s pad, their positions directions are also located when your prints are scanned for the first time. All this information is stored when your print templates are saved. When the prints you provide a second time match the stored one, a green LED light shows a positive match and the locks are made accessible.
