 Just Tap Your Smartphone to Unlock Your House Door

A new smart lock has been reportedly developed that lets users control their entries and exits from the house at the tap of the smartphone. Smart technology is penetrating every sphere of people's lives.

UniKey Kevo lock by Kwikset is priced at 219 dollars and because it is smartphone controlled, users can tap once to unlock and tap it twice to lock based on proximity to the programmed Bluetooth key with 30-foot range.

According to Mashable, in a revolutionary attempt at having keyless doors in future, the Kevo iPhone app that comes with the smart lock, users can bolt or unbolt the doors, while a normal key backup still remains.

Kevo operates on four AA batteries, which will last about a year of normal touch operation and users have the option to email the 'eKeys' to their family members or friends to get into their house.

Users also get notifications like eKey acceptance, low battery alert and software updates.

The UniKey Kevo lock is available in polished brass, satin nickel and Venetian (dark) bronze from Amazon, Brookstone, Build.com, Home Depot, Lowe's and Newegg.

The report said that installing after installing the lock users need to securely register their Kevo account and eKey

When the lock is touched, it lights up with a blue circle and then Kevo takes three or four seconds to lock, turning the light green and orange when unlocked, while the LED on the Kevo flashes red when door is locked and green when it is open, the report added.
