Lockly known for its premium smart home security products in the US, is launching its first 1080p-ready next-generation lock. The Lockly Vision Elite video smart lock comes with deadbolt mechanism along with improved recording capabilities and voice assistant features. In other words, it's a 3-in-1 smart security solution at home.
- Lockly adds night vision on its new Vision Elite video smart lock.
- Lockly Vision Elite comes with voice assistance control.
- The video smart deadbolt lock retails for $500.
The biggest addition to Lockly Vision Elite video smart lock that is not found on other models is the 1080p security camera with infrared night vision. Paired with a motion sensor, it allows intelligent detection during day and night. More importantly, the camera can detect objects up to 15 feet (~4.6 meters) away. It can provide a live view with a two-way voice function via its microphone.
Lockly says that all video recordings are only stored on the internal video storage. The video smart lock works with or without a WiFi too. It also features a built-in solar panel that modestly charges and lengthens the battery life of two replaceable batteries inside.
In terms of security, the lock uses a deadbolt mechanism inside that is more secure compared to spring-type locks. There is a 3D fingerprint scanner positioned on the side for faster unlocking. Lockly Vision Elite also boasts the same custom PIN Genie touch keypad with shuffled number locations as well as remote lock/unlock and offline access codes via the mobile app.
Users can access lock history in addition to the real-time door status. You can also share temporary electronic Keys via the app. A physical keyhole is present in case you are locked out. Moreover, both Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant voice control are supported with this smart lock.
