(ECNS) - Investigations have found that smart door locks have higher safety risks, especially in their remote control and facial recognition functions, according to a statement by the State Administration for Market Regulation on Monday.
Quality checks by the administration found that keyless locks are prone to safety problems related to passwords, anti-electromagnetic interference, and fingerprint recognition.
Consumers are advised to purchase smart door locks at reputable larger stores, not to activate the face recognition or remote access control functions, and to choose products with input error alarm and anti-vandal alarm functions, the statement said.
Consumers should set up two-factor authentication, such as using a password and a fingerprint together as a key, the statement said.
