If you are worried about your home security you may be relieved to hear the news of Apigy’s new Lockitron, the new smart deadbolt system, which is thinner and less expensive than last year’s chunkier and costlier one. Apigy is a company famous for its smartphone-operated locks. Its previous device was an entire replacement for the lock and handle, which made it almost impossible to use for customers living on rental basis.
Apigy has recently announced the launch of the new deadbolt access system, Lockitron, which attaches to your present deadbolt, thus enabling you to lock or unlock it remotely. It is extremely easy to install Lockitron on your deadbolt, and though all models are not supported by it, most are. It features fantastic remote door unlocking, access through SMS and also with NFC, per-user access control and a knock sensor. The new device has been positioned by the company for tech-savvy customers and also for those who want to open the door for renters, along with guests. The company has also created a dedicated Android app to manage all the digital features, though the deadbolt itself links to the Wi-Fi wireless network of your home, enabling you to handle it from anywhere around the world!
While RFID has been available for quite a long time for businesses, but Lockitron’s new system is useful for home security, in addition to being helpful for businesses. With its compatible Bluetooth 4.0, Lockitron is capable of unlocking automatically when you approach the door with your iPhone 4S or 5. This is particularly useful when your hands are full of bags of groceries or some other commodities.
How it improves your home security
As you can see, everything about locking and unlocking your door will be done by your phone. And as it is YOUR phone, the possibility of the house to be intruded through the door is cut to zero. Information about whether Bluetooth 4.0 will be attached to only your phone or everybody’s phone is not available yet. The product is considered to be a digital revolution towards home security.
Lockitron is still available on preorder and Lockitron’s first batch of 1,000 units is expected to be shipped somewhere around March 2013.
Though the system is extremely useful for the security purpose, possibility is it will be used by homeowners to lock in and out of their houses just for fun!
