Biometric access control solutions provider ZKTeco USA is showing off the product of a collaboration with Israel-based wireless charging technology specialist Wi-Charge at this year’s Mobile World Congress event in Los Angeles.

The companies have delivered a biometric lock system for the home that doesn’t require batteries. It’s just a prototype, but one that shows off the unique advantages of the companies’ collaboration, with the system incorporating a ZKTeco fingerprint reader and Wi-Charge’s wireless charging technology.

In a statement announcing the solution, ZKTeco USA President Manish Dalal suggested that it could represent the beginning of a larger collaboration between the companies. “The convenient, stable and meaningful power that Wi-Charge delivers is an excellent building block for next-generation access control solutions,” he said.

The solution is being shown off from Wi-Charge’s booth, #1566, in the South Hall of the Los Angeles Convention Center, where this year’s Mobile World Congress Americas is being hosted.
