Nuki Keypad 2.0 with fingerprint scanner – 0 is missing a function › jojo Reviews

The supplier Nuki, known for its intelligent access system, has presented its new Keypad 2.0 and will offer it in the future in addition to the standard Keypad already available.

The new keyboard can be used in combination with the so-called Nuki Smart Lock 2.0, the Nuki Smart Lock 3.0 and the Nuki Smart Lock 3.0 Pro and offers access by means of a code or via the integrated fingerprint scanner. It takes about a second to recognize up to 20 possible fingerprints.

The Keypad 2.0 is powered by four AAA cells, which should guarantee a lifespan of approximately one year. In terms of price, the Nuki Keypad 2.0 is significantly more expensive than its predecessor. While the variant without fingerprint scanner is sold for a price of 79 euros, the new model will soon be on the market with a suggested retail price of 159 euros.

Three seconds to open

According to the provider, using the Nuki Keypad 2.0 should make it possible to open the door in about three seconds. In addition to the one second to capture the fingerprint, additional time is required for the transfer to the smart lock. To make sure this works reliably, Nuki promises constant refinement of the secure fingerprint. This should allow the use of the keyboard for children’s hands, whose fingerprints are still changing due to continued growth. If children use the system regularly, the secure fingerprints should grow with them.

0 is missing a function

Interesting: the Nuki Keypad 2.0’s numeric keypad is again missing a zero. According to the manufacturer, this restriction is intended to increase the security of the assigned codes, although it effectively reduces the number of possible combinations:

[…] the keyboard 2.0 has […] only via keys for the numbers 1 to 9, but not 0. This is an extremely simple and amazingly effective means of increasing the security of the assigned codes. Because of the missing 0, most birthdays are omitted as code. If given a six-digit code, many people even choose a birthday or anniversary. However, these are easy to extract for third parties.
