First of all, yes, the Okidokeys Smart Lock is yet another smart lock system. We have seen quite a number of them lately and we have even featured a couple on GetdatGadget. Okidokeys has many similarities with other competing products including an internet enabled monitoring and controlling system and easy installation. However, what makes Okidokeys different is that more attention is given to the keys or rather more options on how you can open your smart lock.
All smart locks make use of your smart phone as a replacement for your normal key although most systems will also allow for a key to be used as a backup in case of an emergency. This normally works well under many circumstances but what if you live with other people in the house who do not have access to a smartphone? These can be older people or younger children. You can fall back on using keys but you will lose the ability to monitor who accesses the door.
This is where Okidokeys has an advantage. Okidokey has both the smartphone and key options but in addition, it will also allow other methods such as a normal cell-phone, an RFID tag or wristband tag or a credit card sized tag. All these options not only lets the users unlock the Okidokeys lock but you will still be able to identify and control who has access. For example you can let your kids use the wristband tag or you can pass the neighbors a card tag when you are away on vacation.
The Okidokeys system uses a mixture of technologies including Bluetooth 4.0 (BLE), Near Field Communication (NFC), Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) and Crypto Acoustic Credential (CAC). The use of such technologies allow for multiple ways to control how you unlock a door. You can even set Okidokeys to unlock a door as you approach it. How is that for convenience?
Okidokeys is also the perfect solution for managing multiple rental properties. You can easily set up multiple temporary keys using any of the methods above and have full control from anywhere in the world and at any time of the day.
