I am looking for a way to secure my cellar door with a minimalist retina scanner. I am very new to this technology and am hoping to tap the collective IQ here. All thoughts are appreciated.
A cool idea. But I wonder if it wouldn’t be easier to obtain a fingerprint scanner since they’re so widely used on computers and phones.
will it work if they’re bloodshot?
I hope it works if they are bloodshot .
While I realize this was quite possibly (probably?) asked in jest, yes, in theory “bloodshot” refers to the conjunctival vessels and in no way would impact a retina scan.
Now, I have been curious as to what occurs if one has diabetic, hypertensive, or other retinal changes.
Why not just a keypad? What is the real advantage of a retinal scanner?
There is currently no lock on it and nothing drilled in the door. I was thinking a retina scanner attached to a magnetic lock. Does anyone have any insight? My aviator is a pic if the cellar setup.
Only useful for preventing teenage children accessing I suppose.
A retina scanner would be very expensive. Fingerprint technology would be cheaper, but still expensive. Card locks or keypads are more affordable.
Yup…and babysitters/mother in law/and wife’s book club!
Will it work if there’s a power failure; will it need to be re-set/re-calibrated after one?
Better hope any potential thieves haven’t seen Demolition Man.
Does your aviator fly your helicopter onto the Screaming Eagle estate?
With a retina scanner, you might want to add a deterrent as well. Say something like a 10 inch long spike that pops out of the scanner if the retina is not recognized. Just thinking out loud here so to speak - you can’t be too careful.
While I don’t have one I do know someone who tried retina scanner, thumbprint, and key pad. Here were the issues he had.
Retina: bloodshot from being in the pool/water prior caused issues where it wouldn’t work.
Fingerprint: Same as above (sans the bloodshot part)
keypad: worked everytime.
Use a key pad and don’t worry.
While I admittedly know nothing of retina scanners, I know a couple of things about the retina and the bloodshot issue makes no sense.
But I agree that a keypad or simply a keyed lock would be best.
What about those devices implanted subcutaneously that trigger the lock? That’d be high-tech enough, no?
No idea either, just relaying the info and issues he told me he had with various things he tried.
I have a $250 fingerprint deadbolt on mine - works great for teenagers (as far as I know)
