Stopping Bicycle Thieves In Their Tracks With The Bisecu Smart Bike Lock
Bolting your bike to a rack just isn’t enough to keep it safe. Of course, you can always throw in a traditional combination bike lock into the equation, but this will only delay the process.
A group of engineers from South Korea think they have the solution and that would be the Bisecu Smart Bike Lock. The lock utilizes a Bluetooth 4.0 chipset to communicate to the connected phone. It features a 100dB audible alarm, accelerometer, waterproof design, military grade encryption, gyroscope and patent-pending locking mechanism. If a thief tampers with the lock, an alert will be transmitted to the connected phone and the audible alarm will be activated. This will alert the owner and the people in close vicinity of the event.
The lock only weighs 0.3 kilograms, making it the lightest bike lock on the market. It attaches directly to the front wheel, preventing it from turning. The cylinder design eliminates the option of cutting the lock, because the locking mechanism is concealed from view.
The battery offers a runtime of 6 months and can be recharged with the built-in Micro USB port. The one-time install takes about 10 minutes
Bisecu is not only a bike lock, but also a cycling computer that provides real-time data, including speed, distance traveled and calories burned with each ride.
The Bisecu Smart Bike Lock is expected to launch on KickStarter in Q2 2017.
