Summary

Allows a door (when fitted with a Lockitron lock) to be unlocked without the need for a key. Family, friends, or other visitors can be allowed temporary or regular access. The door can be locked or unlocked from anywhere in the world via the Internet. A knock sensor detects a visitor’s knock on the door, and alerts the user. The lock sends a notification when its batteries start running low. People without smartphones can access the Lockitron lock by sending a text message. Of value to people with a disability of movement problem. Note that, to function, the app requires the purchase of a Lockitron lock.

Reviews

Reviewer: ‘Cool Gadgets: Smartphone-Powered Door Locks’, ALS Association, USA
Review: “Knock, knock, who’s there? Sometimes it’s someone you’d like to let into your home – say a friend, family member or caregiver. But it’s tough to get to the door. Perhaps you want a plumber, repair person, or other helper to be able to come in when you’re out. Or you would like to avoid having to fumble for your keys when you get home. Now there’s a gadget designed to make your life a little easier. It’s called a ‘smart lock’. Visitors can use their smartphones to gain access to your home. Many of these new lock systems allow you to send a ‘virtual key’ to anyone you choose. Most models retrofit to an existing deadbolt lock, but others require that your door’s lock be replaced. … The ‘Lockitron’ goes right over the deadbolt on the inside of the door. It offers keyless entry. You lock and unlock your door with just a finger tap, and you can grant access to anyone you’d like, using the app. It can also provide keyless entry with the iPhone 4S or 5. It costs $179.”
