One of the most practical applications of using SMARTRing is to have it as a key to your apartment. Today there is a wide range of different digital Locks available to buy; one is for example from Samsung. It works perfectly with SMARTRing, which means that the usual cards and tags (included with the purchase of the lock) is not required to use; instead, it only needs to unlock the door is a SMARTRing programmed the usual way (by yourself) with a digital lock (see 4:35 into the clip of the installation video, link at the bottom). The advantages of this are that
- Only the SMARTRing is needed – no key or access card is needed included
- Always available – it is always available where you need it the most: on your finger. No grabbing for any keys or access cards that you forgot where you put it.
- Increased security – you need not to worry about losing it as easy as it is to lose, forget or be robbed of a key or access card.
- Visible and securely stored – when a SMARTRing, just like a normal finger ring, is worn on a finger (i). you can immediately see if it is on or not. And, if you were to drop it, (ii). you will feel it immediately and can easily pick it up and insert it onto your finger again.
Ring Size – As for all rings, you have to try out the right size, but its worth repeating: A ring should sit loosely enough so that it feels comfortable to wear it, but, at the same time, be just as small in size so that it can not readily go to pull off at the knuckle of the finger (which will act as a natural “stop”), but one must coax the ring in order to be able to pull off all the way.
