Once the Smart-Lock is installed, users can lock and unlock their doors with Bluetooth 4.0 enabled smartphone, using the free OKIDOKEYS App available for iOS and Android. Users can select different opening rules according to their needs. Among them, the hands-free mode unlocks the door automatically when an authorized user gets close to it. Once paired with the optional OKIDOKEYS Smart-Reader, users and their guests can enjoy the freedom to lock and unlock doors using a variety of key options: smartphones, cellphones, smart keys and traditional metal keys. Users can even keep a credit-card-sized RFID card in their wallet in case their cell phone battery loses its charge.
