Is my current door lock compatible with Nuki?

The Nuki Smart Lock (Pro) supports Euro profile cylinders, Swiss round cylinders, knob cylinders and UK oval cylinders. We recommend using Nuki Smart Lock only with cylinders which have an emergency function. This function ensures that the cylinder can be used with a key on one side, when another key is inserted on the other side. Answer 7 brief questions to find out if Nuki Smart Lock can be installed on your door lock. Installation check

The key adapter has been reworked and the Nuki Smart Lock (Pro) is compatible with conventional knob cylinders. The adapter acts as a connector between the knob cylinder and your Smart Lock (Pro) and must be ordered along for proper use. You can find more information and installation instructions here.

How do I mount the Nuki Smart Lock on my door?

Nuki can be easily installed on the inside of your door, on top of your existing lock and key. Depending on the height of the lock cylinder, the Smart Lock can be clamped on it, or glued to the door. The key will be operated by Nuki as soon as you have configured your Smart Lock with the Nuki app.

How do I install the Nuki Bridge?

Nuki Bridge Installation

Plug in & start immediately

If you’ve opted for the Nuki Smart Lock or the Nuki Opener, you can bring your devices online with the separate Nuki Bridge. Simply plug the Nuki Bridge into a socket that is less than 5m away from the Smart Lock or Opener and connect it to the device and your Wi-Fi. And done – it couldn’t be easier!

If your Smart Lock is connected to your Wi-Fi, you can also access it from outside of the Bluetooth range. The Nuki Smart Lock Pro is already equipped with a built-in Wi-Fi module, which means you don’t need a Bridge. A Nuki Bridge can be paired with several Smart Locks.

Find out here, how to improve the connection between the Smart Lock and the Bridge .
