For decades, these 'age-old' combination digit-dial/key locks have become outdated and indisputably cumbersome to use with 'doubtful' security, particularly due to frequently experienced lost key, small engraved digit-wheels that are difficult to read and dial, easily forgotten 3-digit unlocking codes, and risk of being cracked in seconds.

LOCK is SECURITY
Locks essentially means 'SECURITY'. A luggage lock that is easily cracked or FAILS to secure your belongings while integrating with many other secondary features like remote unlocking, GPS tracking, weighting scale etc. just does not SOUND right to be categorized as a lock - it is simply a 'tech gimmick' having little value proposition. We believe that as a lock or locking device for a luggage, its vital PRIMARY function is to ensure security/protection. Therefore, we focus on perfecting its PRIMARY functions while integrating other secondary functions such as ease-of-use, vicinity tracking etc. to enhance users' travel experience. In line with that, we have chosen Near Field Communication (NFC) as our PRIMARY unlocking/access technology. Unlike Bluetooth or RFID, NFC is designed with vital focus in security and has been well-known as the De Facto technology for mobile secured cash payment/transaction.
Bluetooth is implemented in eGeeTouch® Travel Padlock mainly for Displacement/Vicinity Tracking (patented feature) enabling travellers to be alerted when their unattended luggage/travel bag is moved/displaced unknowingly in scenario such as; when resting/taking a catnap or having a meal during airport transit while waiting for boarding etc. Bluetooth is also incorporated here as a SECONDARY (alternative) access method to accommodate those users who prioritize convenience over high access security depending on personal unique preference and individual circumstances.
