US company Digipas on 4 January 2015 launched the first smart luggage lock eGeeTouch at the International Consumer Electronics Show 2015.
The digital lock allows users to open or lock a suitcase with just a swipe of their smartphone. It offers hassle free security of luggage for the highly mobile worldwide travellers.
• Approved by the US Transport Security Administration, eGeeTouch is waterproof and can handle both extreme hot and cold weather.
• The lock can be accessed with just a tap of a Near field communication (NFC)-enabled smartphone, tablet or smartwatch.
• If the user does not have an NFC-enabled device, he can access the lock by using a pre-paired NFC smart tag or sticker.
• The lock runs on battery power, but can be recharged with an external USB portable power source.
