OKIDOKEYS Specifications

The OKIDOKEYS Smart Lock fits over the preexisting deadbolt. It is compatible with the single cylinder ANSI grade I or II deadbolt, which are installed in most homes in the United States.  It is incompatible with the Mortise, so keep this in mind, before purchasing OKIDOKEYS.

This Smart Lock is equipped with a 4.0 Bluetooth chip, so it can communicate with most 4.0 Bluetooth enabled iOS and Android devices. Once the installation  process is complete, you will simply grab your source device, download the OKIDOKEYS app, and then complete the initial setup.

The auto-unlock feature offers the homeowner a hands-free access option, which works  through the app and Bluetooth connectivity. When you enter the Bluetooth range, the Smart Lock will sense your presence and automatically unlock the door.

By utilizing the OKIDOKEYS app, you will have the option of sending unlimited temporary or scheduled E-Keys to your friends, family, or the plumber. You can also deactivate the E-Key, whenever you want, so the visitor will not be able to use it again.

This package includes the Smart-Reader, which offers several additional home access options. If you have young children, then you will definitely appreciate this device, since it pairs with the RFID Smart Keychain tag, card, and bracelet. The Smart-Reader is also compatible with most iOS and Android devices, so you can lock/unlock the entrance door from your OKIDOKEYS app enabled device. The built-in alarm system will also send notifications to your source device, when a visitor unlocks your entrance door or tampers with the Smart-Reader. The Smart-Reader must be installed within a 32′ range of the Smart Lock.

The OKIDOKEYS Smart Lock is available in several different styles including polar white, piano black, satin chrome, lime-green, antique brass, carmine red and satin brass. The self-paint style is also available, so you can customize your lock to parallel with your preexisting door hardware. This option will save you some money, since you will never be forced to replace all of your door hardware, just to fit the OKIDOKEYS Smart Lock into the décor. Each cover is an additional cost of $19.99 and available at the Amazon Marketplace.

If you are a busy business owner and parent, you may be in a habit of leaving your entrance door unlocked. It can be very time consuming to turn around and go back home, just to lock the door. This issue will be totally eliminated with the OKIDOKEYS Smart Lock, since it is equipped with an auto-lock feature.

Overall Assessment
