BOSCH EL800A Features

This powerful digital door lock product from the Bosch brand has features as mentioned further below.

1. Sensitive Fingerprint Sensor

One of the Bosch EL800A features that many people look for when choosing a digital door lock is a good level of sensitivity from the touchpad or sensor. 

In this regard, the door lock made by the Bosch brand company has a good sensor design when the user wants to access the lock.

Impressively, the EL800A has sensor technology that is capable of identifying fingerprints in less than 0.8 seconds.

Apart from that, fingerprint pad technology also comes from semiconductor material with a fingerprint area of 160 pixels and an image resolution of 508 dpi.

2. Push Pull Motion

The push-pull motion feature on the EL800A handle provides ease and comfort to the user when opening the door. 

This type of handle also allows the user to not exert vertical pressure on the door handle. That way, older people and children in your house can open the door more comfortably and smoothly.

This handle will be useful when you or your partner need to open the door while carrying objects. It is effortlessly done by simply pushing your door with your body.

3. Fully Automated Lock

This feature also adds to the amount of pleasure and convenience for users. This feature makes going in and out of your house or apartment easier and quicker for you and your family. 

Imagine a great amount of time and energy you can save when you don't always have to check whether your door is locked whenever someone enters or leaves the house.

4. Fake PIN Code

Another feature is a fake PIN code, which, as the name suggests, protects the user's original code from people who try to force their way into the house without the homeowner's knowledge.

5. Anti-prying Alarm

The alarm feature on Bosch digital lock EL800A will go off when there is an attempted break-in or forced entry, whether via mechanical key, PIN, or other access. 

In addition, if someone fails to enter the password or key thrice, the system will lock for 3 minutes.

6. Low Battery Indicator

This smart lock from Bosch is also equipped with an indicator when your lock’s battery power is running low. 

The notification is usually in the form of a flashlight or sound. This way, users can immediately remove the batteries and replace them with new ones. 

One professional tip when replacing the battery of your door lock is not to mix the new and old batteries. Also, regularly replacing the battery every six months would be better. 

Hence, don't wait until the indicator lights up or your door lock response decreases; you must replace the battery.

7. Circuit Failure Alarm

This advanced smart door lock from Bosch also has a circuit failure alarm feature which will keep the home and user safe. With this feature, the system will keep the door locked for some time when a power outage occurs.

8. Anti-panic device

This feature will be helpful when the sensor catches abnormal heat inside your house, a fire, an electrical short circuit, etc. 

The alarm will automatically turn on, and the system mechanism will unlock the door. That way, all family members, from older people to children, can easily open the door to save themselves.

9. Child's Lock

Safety lock mode for kids is one of the features usually found in advanced digital door locks. With this feature, parents don't need to worry about their child accidentally opening the door and slipping out their property.
In addition, this feature is also a favorite feature for those living with their pets at home. That way, pets such as dogs or cats cannot go out when the owner is busy with activities.

BOSCH EL800A Design

Apart from superior functional aspects, Bosch EL800A sleek and modern design highlights an intelligent look from every angle. 

Not only that, there are two stunning color choices available, namely amber gold and space grey.

Additionally, unlike its sleek, rectangular front appearance, the EL800A has a sturdy and powerful side look at the same time. This design and style cannot easily be found on other standard smart door locks.

Meanwhile, the lock's outside and inside body have a full panel design and logo at the bottom. 

On the outer body part, the number pad and card reader are well-designed in the upper part of the outer body part per section. 

Other features, such as the handle, speaker, and fingerprint panel, are in the middle section.
Furthermore, the emergency power port and mechanical key are located somewhat hidden on the bottom section's horizontal side.

On the other hand, the design and placement of the functional buttons on the inside body parts of the EL800A are also relatively easy to understand. 

The middle to upper section includes a battery cover, volume control, child's lock, etc. The rest section consists of an emergency knob and handle.

BOSCH EL800A Performance

The performance of the EL800A in terms of identifying fingerprints and other types of unlock access has proven to be impressive. 

You or your family members can open the door quickly as the sensor can identify your finger within 0.8 seconds.
Furthermore, you can effortlessly open the door in seconds with the EL800A’s handle type.

With the increasing number of smart home applications among the general public, Bosch also produced their door lock to be able to configure with the Bosch smart home app.
Meanwhile, the app is available on the App Store and Play Store. You can easily download it in a minute through your iOS or Android cellphone.
With the app installed on your cell phone, you need to connect it with your door lock. One of the Bosch EL800A wireless connectivity options most people choose is Wi-Fi.

3. Secure and Private

This is because data encryption applies to a high level of security systems.

The Bosch smart home application is not only used for smart door locks. This app also controls other home devices such as cameras, room lights, offices, water alarms, etc.
