It’s been a few years since Adel Trinity-788 got an update, but this new version is finally here.
Adel and Shieldlab engineering research developed the new version two Trainty-788 lock. The fingerprint scanner is redesigned. It’s multispectral imaging to capture superior fingerprint images quick and accurate. We also changed sensor activation by infrared to activation by touch for faster response time. Therefore, it will not be affected by direct sunlight anymore. The other disadvantage of version one was the handle spring breaking. Now with Strong, Durable, Lightweight material we’ve resolved that issue.
Adel is the world leader in biometric technology that pioneered fingerprint recognition development and applications.
Everyone has a unique, unchanging fingerprint. A fingerprint is made of a series of ridges and furrows on the surface of the finger and these are used to determine the uniqueness of the fingerprint. Once registered on the fingerprint scanner, the image of these patterns is converted into a code through a mathematical sequence called an algorithm which effectively becomes a digital form of you. This is stored on a database for comparison which grants authentication and access through the secured door.
Adel has dedicated over three decades in developing the most efficient and accurate fingerprint identification technology. Today Adel and Shieldlab is the world’s leading supplier of fingerprint biometrics for both law enforcement and identity management applications.

Frequently Asked Questions and answers
How do I cancel "Passage mode? Scan a valid fingerprint or input the valid code, the door will now lock.
How can I keep the door unlocked? Scan a valid fingerprint so lock allows entry, press the * key within 5 seconds of successful opening and the lock will remain unlocked.This is called "Passage mode"
Why do I hear the motor turn when a fingerprint has been applied but the door does not open? Most likely, the center shaft between the 2 lock parts are not aligned properly.Uninstall the lock, check the center shaft cradle on the enrollment side of the lock to be sure the top and bottom points are properly aligned.They should point at each other.Reinstall the lock and test
How does the lock open when the unit has a dead battery? The emergency over-ride key can be used if available.You may also hold a 9 volt battery in place at the bottom of the lock How do I delete an individual user print? Scan the master print then press "-". Now use the + or - buttons to adjust the first digit of the print number then press # . Use the + or - keys to adjust the second digit for the desired print number, then press # you will see the print number flashing press # to confirm the delete press * to confirm the delete press * to exit Here is an example of deleting user 17: scan master print then press - key.Now use the + key to change the first digit to a 1 then press the # key.Now press the + or - key to see a 7 then press # press # again then *
Can I delete an individual fingerprint? Yes, an individual fingerprint can be deleted , be sure to keep a list of "fingerprint numbers for identification.
Can I use a code and fingerprint combo? No,the lock does not utilize print/code combos
Can I use a code only? Yes, there is only 1 code available for emergency use
How many fingerprints can be enrolled? The Trinity lock will allow for 96 regular users prints, 3 master prints and 1 access code

- Mush better lock right of the start!Review by Richard Longwood
The new lock looks the same as version one except the border of the fingerprint sensor is red. I’m not sure why, but what I do know for sure. The new version is soooo much better! The response time is faster and the motor is quirt compared to the older model. It just seems more responsive and durable. You can feel the deference right of the bat.
Adel said that they upgraded the sensor and the spring, because of spring breakage that’s the reason I replace my last lock. I know that Shieldlab sales replacement spring, but I thought because the lock was 5 years old it would be smarter just getting a new lock. This new lock is too vital for security resins to just replace a spring and have trouble down the road!
I spent a little more money to get a better lock. Boy it was worth every penny!
I’ll keep you posted on the new lock, but for now I’m giving it 5 stars

Press any finger to the scanner. (The index finger is the most commonly used). Remove after one beep. Press the "+" button. Press the "#" button. Press the "+" button. Press the "#" button twice.
(1) Example for enrolling administrator: Scan Master Finger push +#+## scan administrator finger two times
Present the administrator finger on the scanner and lift away (after one beep). Present administrator finger again and lift away (after two beeps).
You have successfully enrolled the master fingerprint. Testing the administrator fingerprint. By placing your same finger on the scanner the lock will open.
Enrolling one user at a time.

If I make a mistake, can I reset the program and start over? Yes, it is referenced as initialization.Resetting the lock to factory default.
Remove battery cover. Take out one battery. On the front unit fingerprint scanner side you need to drain the power left in the lock by pressing any of the buttons.
You would need two people to complete the next step also you should have two small objects. I use paperclips. You don't need to push down hard. You could break the circuit board. I did the first time :-(
Above the batteries is too small circular holes. Press both buttons using the paperclips and don't let go! Use the second person to put the battery back into its place. Keep pressing two buttons until you hear the reset sound. The system is reset, put the battery cover back on. Your lock is now back to out-of-the-box condition all fingerprint users encode have been deleted from the lock.
The lock resumes to the new lock state (factory setting). Any finger can open the door, and master fingerprints, member fingerprints, as well as spare passwords need to be set again.
How many different fingerprints can be enrolled?
99 users: 3 master user fingerprints and 96 member fingerprints. (Users locations 00, 01 and 02 are Masters and can add/remove Members or other 96 member fingerprints.
1. Users locations 03 - 98 are for Members fingerprints. 2. User location 99 is the 6 digit Password, 111111 as set from factory. 3. We suggest maintaining a list of all users 00- 99 for future reference)
Can I leave the door unlocked?
Yes, this is called "Passage Mode".
Press Button # one time within 5 seconds after the door opened, and the passage mode is enabled. To disable Passage mode, place an enrolled fingerprint on the scanner or input the valid password.
What can I do if the batteries fail?
We suggest placing the handle Allen wrench and lock keys on your key ring. You can use a 9V battery for emergency power (pay attention to the positive and negative poles of the battery, hold battery to bottom of lock) and then place an enrolled fingerprint on the scan window or input the spare password to open the door.
We recommend changing the batteries when the unit first sounds the low battery warning sound. (scan window light remains red) I hear the motor turn after finger placement but the lock does not open. Check for proper clutch and latch alignment and Inspect latch assembly for proper operation.
