As an alternative to our specially designed Nuki Bridge, you can repurpose a no longer used Android smartphone to a Bridge, so you can remotely access your Smart Lock. Same as our Nuki Bridge, the Android Bridge app can be paired with several Smart Locks.
Download the Android Bridge app from the Google Play Store, install it on your smartphone an connect it with your Smart Lock. Place your Android Bridge permanently in about 10 meters range to your Smart Lock. In addition, your Android Bridge requires a permanent power supply and an Internet connection.
Requirements for the Android Bridge app:
- Android 4.3 or higher
- Bluetooth 4.0
- Permanent power supply
- Permanent internet connection (Wi-Fi or mobile data)
Although the specifications of an Android device may meet the requirements mentioned above, we can not guarantee that the Android Bridge App will work properly. Low-cost devices (e.g. Elephone Q) or unsuitable devices such as Android TV boxes or Android TV sticks do often have inadequately sized antennas and incomplete Bluetooth implementations and thus they can not establish a Bluetooth connection to the Smart Lock.
