Philips created a new smart lock that doesn't require a key or a code - all you need is your hand. The company showed off its new $359.99 Wi-Fi Palm Recognition Smart Deadbolt during CES 2024, which comes with a built-in palm scanner that unlocks your door when it detects your unique palm print.

Philips already offers several smart deadbolts that feature fingerprint technology, as do other smart home device manufacturers, like Eufy and Aqara. However, palm recognition technology, unlike fingerprint scanning, scans the individual vein pattern in a person's palm. Also unlike fingerprint scanning, the palm recognition feature is touchless, as individuals can unlock their 5000 Series by simply holding their palm a few inches in front of the lock's scanner.

The palm vein recognition sensor of is activated when a person holds their palm out toward the sensor. Each person's vein pattern is as different as a fingerprint or iris, which makes this a great way to accurately authenticate anyone attempting to enter your home.

As for the inside of the Wi-Fi Palm Recognition Smart Deadbolt, users will find the device has multiple sensors designed to detect when an individual is reaching for the handle. Once detection has been made, it will automatically unlock the door and then lock it again once the individual has left.

Philips Wi-Fi Palm Recognition Smart Deadbolt uses Wi-Fi to connect to the Philips app or your favorite virtual assistant including Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa. Surprisingly, there's no support for Matter or Thread just yet.

The deadbolt can be used on its own or paired with other Philips Home Access Smart Lock products throughout the home. Philips offers the deadbolt in matte black and satin nickle colors.
