Some features were already been implemented in the past, but others took a little more time. Apple HomeKit integration has been one of the greatest wishes of our customers since the Smart Lock first appeared on the market. We have devoted a lot of attention to this feature over the past few months and are now proud to announce: The improved version of the Nuki Smart Lock is HomeKit compatible.
Nuki Smart Lock supports HomeKit
Thanks to Apple HomeKit integration, the Nuki can now also be controlled via Siri, managed through the Apple Home App, and very easily incorporated into your smart home system.
The new door sensor detects whether your door is open or closed and warns if you try to lock the door when it’s open.
We have always striven to make the Smart Lock compatible with as many devices and doors as possible. That’s the reason why the Smart Lock 2.0 has a new keyway that also allows you to use our electronic door lock with standard knob cylinders.
Just like the new Nuki Fob and Nuki Keypad, the Smart Lock 2.0 has been upgraded to Bluetooth 5, which improves not only the range, but also connection stability.
As a result of the new motherboard, the Nuki Smart Lock 2.0 is now also compatible with the popular Smart Home standard “ZigBee”.
Due to the new, more powerful processor, the speed of the Nuki Smart Lock 2.0 has increased by 300%.
And best of all, you won’t have to wait until 2020 or even 2019: The new version of the Smart Lock will be available in the Nuki Shop in November and will cost EUR 229 – the same as the first generation Smart Lock.
But we have also already planned specific solutions for 2019: the Nuki Opener.
This retrofittable door opener for your intercom system will appear in the first half of 2019. That way, your house door will also become smart and make completely keyless access from the street all the way into your home possible.
The differences at a glance:
|First generation||Smart Lock 2.0|
|Compatible with knob cylinders||No||Yes|
|Compatible with oval UK cylinders||No||Yes|
