Goji Smart Lock, The Smartphone Activated Keyless Entry Door Lock
If you’re tired of always having to keep an eye on your home keys and make sure you don’t misplace them, your suffering might just come to end soon! The Goji Smart Lock is a keyless entry door lock which replaces the classic key with a virtual one managed by your smartphone.

The Goji Smart Lock is compatible with iPhone and Android devices, has a built-in camera which can send you pics of whoever is knocking at your door, allows key sharing via the free iPhone and Android apps, date and time based key activation and deactivation in case you need to give someone temporary access to your home (no more running after you ex to get the apartment keys!!), it’s powered by two AA batteries which last about 1 year under regular usage and also comes with two traditional keys as backup … just in case!

So how exactly does it work? Simply instal the Goji Smart Lock on your door, connect to your WiFi network, follow a couple of steps to setup the lock and you’re ready to go. Once you ran the setup, the Goji lock connects to your smartphone via Low Energy Bluetooth and allows you to lock or unlock the door via a simple touch of a button. While we like the idea behind the Goji lock and we’re looking forward to throwing away our physical keys ASAP, we are a bit concerned about the security level of the virtual keys. The guys from Goji confirmed that “The connections are coded with bank-level encryption to enssure your electronic safety.“. What’s your take on it? Are you ready to move from a traditional lock to a keyless entry door lock managed by your iPhone?
