Biometric fingerprint deadbolts and door looks are quickly replacing standard door locks and understandably so. While most traditional locks can be picked open with a wide array of sharp objects and a bit of patience, biometric door locks provide a much higher degree of security through complexity and ingenuity.
At the same time, they don’t require any keys that you could otherwise misplace or even lose, all you need to open the lock is your own hands. This being said, there are many biometric locks to choose from, some better than others. To give you a better idea of what to look for when shopping for one, we put together a list of the ten best biometric door locks money can buy.

In addition to AA battery power, the lock also comes with an external 9-volt power input option that can be used to power the lock in case the batteries go completely flat. Still, there will be a warning beep and an indicator telling you its time to replace the batteries when they are about to run out of power.
