Apple Releases Smart Door Lock That Opens With iPhone or Apple Watch
You can also unlock the door with your voice via Siri.
Dubbed the Level Lock+ from Level Home, the gadget is an exterior door lock described to be the smallest, most capable smart lock on the market. Marking the first Home Key-support lock stocked in Apple’s stores, the lock is offered in “Satin Nickel” and “Matte Black,” currently available in the U.S. only.
“In the footprint of a traditional lock, you can get all-new ways for everyone to access your home. With home keys, simply tap to unlock Level Lock+ using your iPhone or Apple Watch for easy and secure access to your home,” the product description reads. In addition to devices, users can simply use their voice by asking Siri to unlock the door. With the Level app, access can be shared across family and friends.
The lock uses a hidden CR2 battery powering the NFC connection, which is what your iPhone or Apple Watch would use to unlock the door.
Priced at $329.95 USD, the Level Lock+ is now available at Apple stores in the U.S. with shipping taking between six to eight weeks.
