Slim Pattern Lock Doorknobs

The 'Interstellock' Digital Door Lock is Unlocked with a Gesture

— October 4, 2017 — Tech
The vast majority of smart locks on the market are designed to unlock when authorized users come within proximity or via an app, but the 'Interstellock' door lock takes things in a different direction. The handle incorporates a touch panel that allows users to set a pattern lock and perform it whenever they want to gain access. This is similar in design to how users unlock their Android smartphone to make it more of an organic experience rather than requiring users to memorize codes.

The 'Interstellock' door lock smartly integrates the functionality of a smartphone unlock sequence to make it suitable for users who want a more streamlined and ergonomic manner to gain entry to their home. The door lock is the conceptual design work of Eunho Shim.
