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?

KeySmart Or How To Organize Your Keys In A Minimalist Way

Organizing your keys was never an easy job! Most keyrings out there are only designed to keep your keys together and make sure you don’t loose them! But how about the space they take, the dangling sound of a pocket full of keys, the extra weight and bulk that come with traditional keychains?

ALSO READ – Keyport – The Reinvented Keychain, another cool way of organizing your keys.

The KeySmart is one little gizmo set to solve all these issues! Made of aircraft aluminum with stainless steel hardware, the KeySmart is lightweight and allows you to organize your keys and keep them together in a folding pocket knife style. The coolest thing about it, apart the fact it’s build in US, is it’s modular expansion design – while the basic version can organize up to 4 keys, a simple $2 expansion post can increase the storage up to 10 keys (it can even fit an USB drive storage inside), allowing you to easily migrate between between sizes based on your needs.

Kevo Lock - The Time To Use Your iPhone As Door Key Has Arrived

The Kevo iPhone Operated Lock allows you to use your smartphone lock and unlock the door. Once the lock installed on your door, download the iPhone app, set up a key and you’re ready to roll. The app allows setting up multiple keys for multiple locks, allows “key sharing” to facilitate other people’s access to your home (think about a new girlfriend/boyfriend, the cleaning lady, your room mate, family, friends). Accesses can be granted and revoked via the app in seconds, so your only worry is to make sure your beloved life partner has an iPhone – and you’re all set up (just joking – the guys over at Kwikset have you covered even if you do not have an iPhone – they include in the package a Kevo Fob which allows the same touch to open and lock technology.

The Kevo Lock will launch this summer with a retail expected price around $250 US.

I like the idea and I can see a lot of possibilities opening around it. My only worry was the lock’s security, but the manufacturer seems to have it covered: “The Kevo lock does not only rely on the built-in encryption available in Bluetooth. Kevo also provides multiple levels of military grade PKI encryption.”

What’s you take on it? Would you change your classic locks for modern, digital door security?
