What makes PIN Genie Smart Lock unique?
1. The globally patented peep proof and hidden camera proof PIN Pad.
The most common and cost effective solution of top smart locks in the current market is to apply a digital key pad on the lock to achieve keyless experience. However, as we all know, password on our traditional PIN pad is very vulnerable to hidden camera or even just a glance over the shoulder. Statistics show that 2 out of 5 people reported that their passwords have been stolen.
PIN Genie Smart Lock applies the PG PIN pad, which has 12 global patents on it. It is simply designed and easy to use while provides the highest protection of your e-key to your home. It randomly distributes the 10 numbers (0-9) into four buttons, and all numbers reshuffle after each time of use. Therefore, even when someone watches you or records you entering your password, he/she still wouldn’t be able to know it. PIN Genie makes PIN theft a thing of the past. The team has first applied the PIN pad into two mobile Apps and launched in 2016. They are PIN Genie Locker, the highest rated screenlock and applock on google play that has over 3 million users worldwide, and PIN Genie Vault on iOS, which is an all-in-one vault to save all kinds of your private files, including photos, videos, logins, etc., PIN Genie PIN Pad has been loved by users and PIN Genie Smart Lock is the only one smart lock in the market that is equipped with such high-security level of PIN pad.
