The connected locks they are an element that grows strongly within the connected home. There are many brands and options (Netatmo, Somfy, August, Aqara …) and in almost all of them we find a more or less conventional design. A section in which you certainly cannot say that it fits the Friday Smart Lock proposal, a model with a design that does not go unnoticed.
This element to improve home access control, arises in 2015 from a project based on collective financing in IndieGoGo. It is an example of a connected lock and has now been updated to version 2.0, becoming compatible with Apple HomeKit, so that integration in the connected home is facilitated.

The Friday Smart Lock is compatible with iOS and Android through the application that can be downloaded at App Store and in Google Play Store respectively. A lock that offers the option of control which people access our home.
Among the functions that it has are those of unblocking and assisted blocking or the possibility of offering access through an invitation to those users who are usually habitual in our house with the “Knock on door” function through which the guest is offered a time of 60 seconds to knock on the door twice and the lock will open automatically. An easy installation lock, because it takes advantage of the space we already have installed at home.

The Friday Smart Lock does not require the use of a hub or hub, because it connects directly to the home Wi-Fi and we can use it with the mobile thanks to Bluetooth.
In the same way it does not require an outlet, since it integrates a battery that, according to the manufacturer, gives it a long autonomy (it is not specified in number). The application will be responsible for notify the user when the level of the lock reaches a certain threshold and if it is necessary to recharge it comes with a charger that connects to any USB charger.
To facilitate outdoor installation, Friday Smart Lock arrives with vandalism protection. You can also customize the color, as the brand offers a series of housings to change the look without having to change the lock.
