First time registration :
When you have received your new suitcase, no fingerprint is recorded in the Memory, any finger will open it until you have recorded one. To record the first fingerprint:
• Place one finger on the sensor to Wake up the system,
• Press the button next to the sensor and hold it down for 2 seconds. The LED will lit yellow quickly,
• Place one finger on the sensor for scanning. The LED lits up blue then green when the scan is completed,
• Remove the finger, the LED flashes again.
• You have to scan the same finger 4 times in succession to record a full fingerprint, until the LED changes to solid blue.
Your fingerprint is saved and will be the only one that can open the bag, it is the master fingerprint that allows to register any additional fingerprint.
Further fingerprint registration registration
You can record up to 10 different fingerprints. To record a second fingerprint – and any additional one – you have to activate the system with the master fingerprint.
• Then quickly press the button next to the sensor and hold it for 2 seconds, until the green LED flashes rapidly.
• Repeat the registration steps as explained above for the first registration
You can record more fingerprints by first opening the lock with any registered finger first, then follow the above procedure.
The fingerprint recognition circuit is powered by 2 x LR0003 AAA batteries that should be replaced every 18 months. The LED near the scanner will blink slowly in red when the dry sells are nearly worn.
To access the batteries holder which is located inside the suitcase right under the carry handle, lay flat your suitcase and unzip the fabric. The zipper is hidden alongside of the the suitcase. Slide the cover of the batteries holder and replace with 2 x Alkaline AAA batteries.
We recommend that you purchase long-life alkaline battery to extend the period of use.
Should the batteries go completely dead while you suitcase is locked, you can power the lock from outside by plugging a USB C cable into the USB C socket located in the carry handle, opposite side of the scanner.
Your Kabuto comes with a set of spare keys, remember to keep one with you (in your wallet for example) while on the move.
