This intellectual key has a memory function that can store multiple lock identities. With this key, it is no longer necessary to carry around a bunch of keys. Moreover, traditional keys are easy to copy, which makes them unsafe. This design connects the key device to a smartphone application. Users simply have to choose the right “key” to the right “door” on the application. Traditional one-to-one physical keys usually use a combination of grooves and cut teeth. However, The One key registers different encryption schemes and unlock different combinations of electrode points. A single key meets all of life’s unlocking encryption needs. Simply select the corresponding memory mode on the smartphone, and with fingerprint verification, the electrode array-sensing device will define the right “key” to the door. The inductor in the door will match the pole matrix in the key to finish the unlocking process. Users can also send temporary authorisation to visitors through the APP, and for security, simply change the unlock programme after.
