Trigger Locks

IDENTILOCK

Building a fingerprint-access trigger lock to secure any handgun.

IDENTILOCK is a biometric gunlock that reads the shooter’s fingerprint before unlocking to leave the trigger open for firing. It fits directly over the trigger of any firearm and once authorized, detaches from the firearm within seconds.

"Because a great number of guns are used for home security purposes, people want to be able to unlock their weapon at a moment’s notice. They don’t want to fumble with a gunlock when they need their weapon. IDENTILOCK’s fingerprint-access integration solves that problem." — Omer Kiyani

Gun Guardian

Securing a firearm with convenient, reliable keyless fingerprint-access technology.

Gun Guardian is the only firearm safety device that allows the weapon to be loaded with a round in the chamber, is keyless, and is always attached to the weapon...even when unlocked. The shield will only uncover the trigger when the correct biometric signature is read via the fingerprint reader, or if the correct security code is entered. It has an internal lock that activates when the shield is engaged. This lock ensures that Gun Guardian cannot be removed from the firearm until the correct security code is entered.

iGun Technology Corp

Simtek makes it easy to monitor physical valuables without worrying about connectivity or power, just like a gun safe.

iGun Technology Corp is building a Magnetic Tag-enabled shotgun that is activated by a ring worn by the user. When the ring comes in close range to the normal ring-finger placement on the firearm's stock, the iGun compares a unique code from the ring to the gun to see if there is a match. If the code matches, the trigger unlocks.
