Today, Goji – makers of advanced smart locks, introduced the Goji Smart Lock. According to the press release, the Goji Smart Lock, “provides an unprecedented level of home-access control and information–including picture alerts–via smart phones so that homeowners feel more confident and secure about who is coming and going from their homes. The Goji Smart Lock is the only lock that has a built-in camera to send homeowners real-time picture alerts via text and email to give them visual confirmation of who is activating their lock.”
“The centuries-old deadbolt lock is undergoing a radical metamorphosis right now that promises to give us previously unimagined control over access to our homes,” said Gabriel Bestard, founder and CEO of Goji, “Being able to send someone a digital key using your mobile phone is just the start. With the Goji Smart Lock, we’re already taking it further by sending picture alerts of anyone who enters your home using their Goji digital key and greeting them by name right on the lock. The future of locks is now.”
The Goji Smart Lock, allows homeowners to unlock their doors, which saves you the hassle of carrying around a bunch of keys. The lock also provides day- and time-specific access privileges to people, who use services such as Airbnb.
Featuring patent-pending technology, the UL-listed Goji Smart Lock consists of the battery-operated deadbolt lock, which homeowners can install themselves in the place of an existing deadbolt, four digital keys and two conventional keys. Programmable fobs are also available.
Here are some of the key features of Goji Smart Lock:
- Picture Alerts: Only the Goji Smart Lock has a built-in camera to send the homeowner real-time picture alerts via text and email that show who is activating the lock. All activity and photos are recorded in a log that the homeowner can access from the Goji mobile app or their Goji-account web page.
- Day and Time Parameters: Homeowners decide exactly when someone can access their home. In a matter of seconds from anywhere in the world, they can send someone day- and time-specific access rights via text or email, and they can revoke them just as quickly through the Goji app or website.
