Gateman SB740 fingerprint electronic rim lock provides the convenience with no key necessary. Enhanced security access is now possible through dual credential ; fingerprint + PIN code. Gateman Series electronic lock is the most simple and powerful access solution for your home and office.
Getting it out of the box
Like other rim locks, this model is designed to be
simple enough for the handyman, the occasional DIYer or the ubergeek to
put together. Instructions for installation are in illustration format and
everything (except tools and drill bits) are included in the box.
Features, features, features!
Most of the features are listed below. But we still want to name a few.
For the current biometric locks , we always get questions on whether we are able to delete individual fingerprint templates of users, whether we are able to set a security level so that fingerprint registration is possible only after accessing that level (via PIN or fingerprint) and whether we can set the lock to use both PIN and password. The answer to all that, with the SB740 is YES!
Normal Home mode :
Enter using PIN or Fingerprint
Also outstanding, is the capability to add remote controls to wirelessly control the lock. This uses Gateman's patented Wireless Floating ID technology as well.
Improvements over older rim locks
By and large, we could name a few drastic improvements over older rim-locks.
The night dead-bolt is now child-proof. In most locks, the deadbolting is simply a toggling of a switch. Some companies make it stiff to prevent mischievous children from locking themselves in. The SB740's inner body sports a new design of a 2-handed deadbolting technique. This makes it impossible for a child to perform. SB740 1.
The break-in alarm is now increased to 80dB. LOUD! Compared to the chirping of other rim locks.
Wireless Floating ID (mentioned in the previous section).
Installation wise : improvements have been made to ease the placement of the inner-body plate and mounting it together with the outer body.
Design, Ease of use, Durable Material
On the outside, the lock body exudes cool and sophistication. It looks hardy and strong and could probably stand up to the test of time. Still this lock is not meant to be used on doors which are openly exposed to harsh weather such as tropical rainfall, blizzards and extreme heat, since electronics are the main components.
On the inside, the much improved rim-lock body makes up for the appeal which most rim locks fail to provide. The double bolts give a sense of strength.
On the whole, the SB740's PIN programming, Fingerprint registration, usage and functions are all user-friendly and we don't really want to say this, ID ten T proof.
