PROS

  • The Okidokeys Smart-Lock is a cinch to install.
  • It offers a number of ways to grant hands-free access.
  • You can assign temporary access to guests or workers.

CONS

  • The lock is noisy when the gears and servos grind to reset.

  • It's large and bulky looking.
Okidokeys wants to make your house keys obsolete. With its smart-lock system, you lock your doors using your mobile phone. When hands-free access is turned on, you can open your front door simply by approaching with your cellphone. You can also grant temporary access to people you trust, like family in town for a visit. The smart-lock system is easy to install and works with most standard deadbolts. It can be upgraded with an optional Smart-Reader, which attaches outside your house to allow access by smart-tags.

After installing it, it is time to try it out. Initially it worked out fine, it would connect and turn and lock. But that's where it all ends. This lock would sometimes NOT connect and would not lock or unlock.

The app is the deal breaker here though. The ability to not only lock and unlock the door from the app is nice. But to also have the ability to give security access to others through the app, is straight-up genius.
