The next generation of Smart Lock from Nuki

Nuki has announced the arrival of Nuki Smart Lock 2.0, the next generation of smart lock that turns a smartphone into a key. Featuring a plethora of new features, the Smart Lock 2.0 includes Bluetooth 5 for improved range, enhanced internal processing power for speed of use, a door sensor for at-a-glance status updates on your home door, plus full Apple HomeKit compatibility. The Smart Lock 2.0 has been specifically updated to cater for the common UK oval-cylinder lock, whilst retaining Nuki’s easily-installed retrofitting. The Smart Lock 2.0 seamlessly fits over your existing lock and key in less than three minutes with no need for replacing door fixtures, and it integrates with existing Smart Home solutions such as Ring and Nest, as well as popular voice assistants Siri, Alexa and Google Assistant.

“The Nuki Smart Lock 2.0 is our commitment to the burgeoning UK smart home market,” said Martin Pansy, CEO of Nuki Home Solutions GmbH. “By listening to our UK community, we believe we have developed a market-defining home access solution that suits the UK smart home’s needs. We are thrilled to be bringing the Nuki Smart Lock 2.0 to the UK this year.” Devised, built in Switzerland, and utilising bank-grade security software, the Nuki Smart Lock 2.0 is fully compatible with Android and iOS and can be used to assign digital access rights to friends, family, and service providers via the companion app. Nuki also negates the need to hide a key under a flowerpot and offers the convenience of the optional Nuki Fob and Nuki Keypad – ideal access solutions for children, tradespeople, carers and for those without a smartphone. New for 2019 Nuki has announced further product innovations such as the Nuki Opener, a retrofit door release for intercom systems which launches in Q1 2019. This self-installation unit can be applied to entrance doors of communal buildings as well as your own door and phone. Martin Pansy commented: “With the Nuki Opener we are completing our product range and can offer a fully integrated solution for both doors in apartment buildings for an urban target group.”
