The vision of creating a holistic, smart and secure access system has been our clear goal since our start in 2014. Following the launch of the Nuki Smart Lock and its second, improved generation – Nuki Smart Lock 2.0 -, we also announced a retrofit solution for the main entrance doors of multi-party buildings: the Nuki Opener.
If you updated your Nuki app in the last few days or read our latest blog post, you’ve probably noticed the new section ‘Device Management’ in the Nuki app. This app update was an important step towards improving the administration of different devices within the Nuki app. Therefore, this update is also a cornerstone for the launch of the Nuki Opener. We are happy to give you another update on the latest addition to our product portfolio today:
The Nuki Opener invitation system
As you already know, the Nuki Opener is connected to the existing intercom system. In contrary to cylinders, there are only few uniform standards for intercom systems. Generally speaking, common intercom systems can be divided into three types: analog, bus systems and IP-based models. They process signals in different ways and have varying connection possibilities. For us an excellent user experience is a must. Therefore, we decided to give selected users the exclusive opportunity to purchase the Nuki Opener even before the official launch, on the basis of their intercom system. This process has started on schedule and we are already looking forward to the first user feedback. Step by step, we will verify the compatibility of the listed systems by the end of summer for the official launch.
The first insights on the Nuki Opener
We are sure you would like to know more about the latest addition to the Nuki product family. We had a look at your most common questions from the past few days and would like to answer them today:
Ring to Open – When you activate the Ring to Open feature, your smartphone detects when you are near your front door. As soon as you ring at your apartment, the buzzer opens your front door and you can enter the house without a key or app. Basically that’s Auto Unlock for your intercom system.
Continuous Mode – This mode allows you to automatically open the door at a defined time when you are ringing.
Ring Suppression – This feature allows you to choose not to ring your bell when using, for example, the Ring to Open feature. A useful feature if you come home late in the evening by Ring to Open while your children are sleeping.
We hope we could give you a small but exciting insight into the current state of development with this update. Further information and the experience so of our first customers will follow in the coming weeks.
We understand that door locks can sometimes be confusing, and not everybody is an expert.
