An undercurrent of frustration has brewed ever since the first key-operated lock was invented some four thousand years ago, erupting to the fore each time a key is forgotten or goes missing and someone is locked out of their own home. Smart locks are one solution to this age-old problem, but many people have issues with their reliance on memorized passcodes or smartphones. Enter Ola, a smart lock that ditches keys altogether, relying instead on recognizing your fingerprint.
The $179 lock is available for pre-order on Kickstarter, where the company is trying to raise $125,000 to help fund the initial production run. As of writing this, $159 is the minimum you need to pay for one Ola unit (shipping included).
