The New Netatmo Smart Lock
Netatmo introduced the Netatmo Smart Door Lock at CES 2020, and it is now finally available for purchase. Despite the three-year delay, the lock still has an intriguing feature. It can be opened with a smartphone via Bluetooth, as expected, but it also has a unique way of using physical keys. Netatmo keys have NFC chips that are pre-synced with the Smart Lock. When the key is inserted, it grants permission to unlock the door using an NFC signal that the lock reads from the key. You can sync multiple locks with a single key and activate multiple keys for each lock to grant access to friends and family. Temporary access can also be granted by setting access times for a specific key. The Security smartphone app allows remote control of the lock and deactivation of the NFC chip, providing security and flexibility. The lock has EN 15684 and SKG security certifications, making it highly secure. It features a stainless steel cylinder with an anti-drill plate and three safety pins. HomeKit compatibility allows integration into scenes and provides remote control when away from home. The lock prioritizes local access and control, with a Wi-Fi lock to keep data out of the cloud. It operates on four AA batteries for over a year. The Netatmo Smart Door Lock is compatible with doors equipped with Euro cylinder locks and is initially launching in select European countries before expanding to the UK. The lock itself is priced at €379.99, with a pack of three Smart Keys available for €99.99, individual Smart Keys for €39.99 each, and extension kits for different door widths for €29.99 each.
