Simple, And Cheaper, Smart Lock Solutions To Keep Your Home More Secure
Despite the potential vulnerability and security issues, many consumers are happy to have smart locks that are connected to the web. Locky and SureKey are two startups who launched Kickstarter campaigns last month.
Both seek to provide at least some portion of the smart lock's advantages as their campaigns decry some smart lock potential disadvantages such as hacking vulnerability, installation hassle, and high price.
Locky is more sophisticated and is powered by a button battery and supports Bluetooth. The main matter of the product is its inertial measurement unit sensor that detects the moment the key turns. The app notifies you when you move out of the range and if opted, your family members can also use it.
SureKey is another startup. This makes use of a sensor which will detect if or not the key rotated within the lock. It uses Bluetooth and also has an app. While Locky is a bit expensive, SureKey is budget friendly. It is also simpler in features than Locky. Neither of them has eliminated the need for battery replacements. Locky can be used for about a year without replacing the battery and SureKey can manage up to five years on the same battery.
