FaceID unlocks your door with Facial Recognition

Posted in Home by Conner Flynn on November 2nd, 2009

FaceID unlocks your door with Facial RecognitionFaceID combines home security systems with facial recognition. It will likely take over from the usual password, swipe card, retina and fingerprint scanning systems that we already use. It isn’t just a concept either.

FaceID is available right now and looks cool enough for any front door. It uses two digital cameras to create a 3D image of your face. Your face model is stored and matched with whoever stands in front of the system so it can decide whether to let you in or not.

Numlock Handle makes your home a giant safe

Numlock Handle makes your home a giant safe Regular old door locks are so last century. What we really need is something that makes entering our homes feel more like entering a vault. That’s what this design concept for a mechanical lock is all about. It could solve the whole keyless lock thing once and for all.

Numlock Handle is pretty self-explanatory from the pic. The door is unlocked when you configure its four tumblers to the correct numbers. Then when you are inside, it automatically scrambles the tumblers once again to lock the door behind you.

Anyway, a door like this may be attached to your home in the near future. Developed using a Linux-based DID board, the display is accompanied by a speaker.

We don’t have any word on the pricing or specs, but hear that the display supports a range of media files fed through a USB port. Check out a video after the jump.

Knob Light sounds dirty, puts a light bulb on your door

Knob Light sounds dirty, puts a light bulb on your doorHey, why not? Your door knob is already bulb shaped and that is where you enter a room from. Designer Jeong-Sun Park’s Knob Light has an internal generator that stores energy to light it up during emergencies.

Emergencies like waking up in the middle of the night and having to go pee-pee, apparently. I’m guessing that turning the knob will generate some power as kinetic energy, but I don’t see this as a great idea. Is it always on? If so, that’s a waste. If it simply stores power and has to be manually activated, that’s not going to help much in an emergency.

Digital Door Viewer is the new peephole
The old style peep hole leaves a lot to be desired. I mean, you have to get up and actually go to the door, in order to see who’s there.(Or if you’re snooping on your neighbors.) And that’s all it does. No more. Just place your eye in front and look. Well, now the peep hole has been given an upgrade.

It will let you know who is outside through a motion sensor and you can take a look from anywhere in your home. The device comes with an SD memory card slot and will store up to 11 hours on a 4GB SD card. This way, you will know who came by while you were away. It will run you $195.
