With the rise of home invasion cases in Malaysia, it’s no wonder people would want to protect their home with the best security measures possible. People would always install security cameras, motion sensor lights, and alarm systems but they always forget one crucial component of security measure – locks.

TheYALE YDM 4109 is the best biometric lock there is. It employs state-of-the-art fingerprint recognition technology to verify your identity before it’s unlocked.

It also comes with an emergency override key which you can use to manually access the door if the door lock malfunctions or when it runs out of batteries.
6. Samsung SHS-P718
The Samsung SHS-P718 has a motion sensor (infrared type) and this sensor serves to facilitate the ‘welcome function’; it is activated when you come close to it (within the range of 70cm) so that you can unlock it easily through various methods (fingerprint, PIN, etc). The sensor also has another purpose - making the lock’s alarm go off when it detects any suspicious movement.

The remote adds the Wireless Floating ID technology into its arsenal – this means that it blocks hacking. The remote can also be used on the door lock for up to 50m. Hence, the hefty price of the lock.
9. igloohome Deadbolt 02
