WeLock Touch review: the smart lock that makes your life easier

In recent years we have experienced an internal renovation of our apartments, thanks to the voice assistants and the many smart accessories launched over time. If you too are passionate about the subject, you will not be indifferent to the product in question: the WeLock Fingerprint Smart Lock Touch41, what can in effect be considered a smart lock, complete with unlocking with a fingerprint (and more).

WeLock Fingerprint Smart Lock Touch41 - Package Contents

The product comes in a particularly accurate package, a blue hardcover that houses the lock, mounting accessories and three NFC plates (which we will see later).

First impressions and build quality

It must certainly be said that WeLock it is not new to this type of product, quite the contrary. If you have happened to travel via Air BnB in the last period, it is very likely that you have stumbled upon one of their products: I am referring to the classic code locks to access holiday homes. We are therefore faced with already tested and well-functioning devices, particularly pleasing from an aesthetic point of view. Our lock, WeLock Fingerprint Smart Lock Touch41, it is all the more so. The product in question loses the classic keypad in favor of a fingerprint sensor: the lock offers the possibility of being unlocked directly through the use of the fingerprint.

In this sense the WeLock it will be useful for families, including large ones, offering the possibility of recording 5 active fingerprints and - at the same time - the possibility of using NFC tags to unlock the lock even faster.

As you may have understood, the first impressions were excellent, and the build quality of the lock also impressed me pleasantly. In fact, by giving up the numeric keypad, the external knob is even more minimal and clean. Internally, however, we find a classic satin metal knob.

Installation and configuration

Let's start by saying that to work, the smart lock WeLock Touch necessity of three AAA stylus. The installation of the product, then, is very simple. It is good that before evaluating the purchase, check the compatibility of the thickness of your door (it must be between 50 and 100 mm).

Having said that, after inserting the stylus to allow the first use, you will clearly have to mount it on the door: all you have to do is replace the current cylinder with the lock WeLock, through a simple step. Once the product has been inserted, you will have to secure all the screws with the Allen key included in the package.

At this point, you will need to switch to the first configuration area of WeLock Touch41 smart lock (this step, to be honest, you can do it even more comfortably before replacing it with the existing lock, so as to facilitate all movements). You will then move on to configure the first fingerprint, the most important one, which will be identified as "proprietary" and necessary for any adjustments to the system settings.

Starting from this first configuration you can then - cascade - go to install the other fingerprints and also the small NFC tags, i.e. the RFID keys present in the package (which are 3). The use of the companion should not be underestimated WeLock app which allows you to make unlocks directly via your smartphone, and which we will analyze later.

Experience of use

It is important to emphasize why to choose a smart lock. We asked ourselves this, and the answer was unambiguous and immediate. By installing the WeLock Touch41 you will benefit every day. You will no longer have to risk forgetting keys, having the entrance to the house full of pairs of keys for each member of the family and, thanks to the use of the app, you can also grant access to the home remotely.

Conclusions and price - WeLock Touch41 smart lock

To draw the best conclusions, we must necessarily start from the price. There WeLock Touch41 it is sold at a list price of 179 €, which can then be discounted thanks to our discount code. Also by virtue of the not exactly cheap price, we would like to recommend the product, for all the reasons listed above. We therefore refer to the possibility of managing the entrances to the house in a much more dynamic way (than the classic keys), thanks to the possibility of registering different fingerprints inside the device. In addition, during the weeks of use, we did not even detect any flaws in terms of safety. This smart lock in question remains in our opinion a more than recommended purchase.
