Getting into your home could get a lot more hands-free shortly. Lockly, a company with a name that gives away its focus on smart locks, unveiled a face recognition lock at CES 2024. The lock, known as Visage, only needs to scan your face in order to unlock the door — no fingerprint, keys or other devices required.
Lockly’s Visage works with Wi-Fi and the Matter smart home standard to seamlessly integrate into your existing smart home — Matter’s official certification is still pending. Visage uses a pair of 2MP-resolution infrared sensors to detect your face within a range of 2.6 feet from the device. It can store up to 100 profiles (how you would use that many unless it’s an AirBnB is hard to fathom) and should unlock the door within a second and a half.
While Visage can operate with your face alone, it’s also equipped with a 3D biometric fingerprint reader and is compatible with Apple’s Home Key, iPhone and Watch. In fact, it’s the first in Lockly’s Zeno series, which focuses on Apple device integration. Visage should also work with Apple Home, along with technology like Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa. Visage also uses existing Lockly technology like Air Transfer and the PIN Genie. Visage should launch this summer for the price of $350.
Lockly also announced the $80 Matter Link Hub at CES 2024 after claiming at last year’s event that the device was coming. It should tell you who opened the Visage lock and allow you also to manage older Lockly devices from your Apple Home. Lockly plans to release the Matter Link Hub sometime this year.
