Best Apple HomeKit smart lock on the market This is a very cool door lock that works with Apple’s Homekit out of the box. It connected to Apple TV 4 gen without even having to turn on the Apple TV. I like the random digits that pop up each time to make it harder to steal the codes. Punching in key codes is a bit slow but does work. Siri’s “Open the door” feature works also, but the response is a bit slow.Overall, I’m very satisfied with this lock. Interactive install guide on iPhone was pretty neat also.

OK….but feels like a beta version of the product It works ok but the screen just doesn’t respond the way it should. You have to press on the screen many times before it will respond. This feels like a beta version of the product.It should also have something that if you have a linked smartphone on you it should unlock when touched. It’s not convenient to have to get the phone out of your pocket and interact with it to get it to unlock.Hopefully the next version will fix this as I wouldn’t recommend it as it is today.
