How smart is the new Wi-Fi Smart Lock

The most important feature is keeping the size small, even after including the Wi-Fi module. The entire point of this product is to ensure the operation of the door using a mobile device. Previous products from the company relied heavily on near-range technologies like Bluetooth. The new product does away with this old approach and allows the user to control the door from anywhere in the world.

The current app also allows you to send virtual temporary keys to your friends through email. This is a similar feature with Airbnb hosts. You can revoke permissions once you think certain people don’t need access anymore. The new improved lock also senses if the owner has come close. The lock opens the door automatically when you return home with your hands full of groceries.
