Latch, New York-based Apple alums’ startup, announces its new M-Series Smart Lock. The lock is integrated with a Bluetooth chipset and has its own companion app. The enterprise-focused lock is designed to provide business owners and landlords with the ability to offer their tenants, customers and employees with keyless access.
Users will have a variety of access options to choose from, including manual key code, mechanical key, NFC-equipped chip card and the companion app. Just wave the NFC card in front of the lock to activate it or input a digital code into the touchscreen. The deadbolt can also be unlocked from the companion app, with just a tap via Bluetooth.
