From the outside of the door, the Ultion SMART appears to be a traditional door lock/handle, but on the inside features smart home technology such as voice activation and geo-unlocking.
Ultion SMART can be operated in a variety of ways. This includes voice controls with Amazon Alexa or Siri through Apple HomeKit, Bluetooth via an accompanying app, wireless keypad PIN access, or a traditional key.
Brisant Secure has partnered with Danalock to create a hands-free operation that provides convenience and peace of mind, by providing an encrypted connection between the lock and the user’s phone.
Using GPS and Bluetooth technologies, the Ultion SMART can automatically unlock when a trusted user approaches the door. Users can even issue time-limited electronic keys, via the Danalock app. The manufacturer claims this makes it suitable for Airb’n’b hosts, letting in tradespeople, gardeners or dog walkers.
Regarding installation, homeowners can either retain existing external door hardware or select from one of Brisant Secure’s edgeless handles and design-led furniture collection (Sweet) with a choice of five finishes across numerals, knockers and letter-plates to name but a few. The Ultion SMART connected door lock can be easily installed in minutes, claims the manufacturer, with no drilling required and easy to replace batteries.
The Ultion SMART Bluetooth model is available to purchase for £229, whilst the Zigbee/Z-Wave model costs £259 and the Apple HomeKit version is £259. It is available to buy now from www.brisant-secure.com
