Aqara has released their Smart Lock U100. This is their first deadbolt lock and if features a fingerprint reader with support for 50 fingerprints, 75 passwords, Apple Home Key, and NFC Tags. It can integrate with Apple Home, Google Home, Amazon Alexa, and more.
Apple Home & Home Key Support
The U100 is a smart door lock that is fully integrated into Apple Home. It can be unlocked with the Apple home keys by simply tapping an iPhone or Apple Watch, even when the iPhone or Apple Watch is out of power. Moreover, you can manage and share door access for your guests in Apple Home.
Fingerprint and More Ways to Unlock
The Smart Lock U100 offers multiple ways to unlock, including a high-precision fingerprint reader for up to 50 fingerprints, remotely configurable passwords via the Aqara Home app (An Aqara Zigbee 3.0 hub is required), one-time local passwords for visitors, and a mechanical key for emergency use.
Automations with Aqara and Third-Party Devices
With an Aqara Zigbee 3.0 hub, the U100 is compatible with third-party ecosystems like Google Home, Alexa, IFTTT as well as the Aqara Home app, allowing it to be easily integrated into a wide range of smart home setups and used in smart home automations. For example, when someone presses the Aqara Video Doorbell G4, you will be able to view who is at your door and easily unlock the U100.
Auto Lock & Do Not Disturb Mode
Thanks to the built-in gyroscope inside the lock, the auto-lock feature locks the door for you after you close it. Alternatively, you can disable this feature and leave the door always open. Also, the Do Not Disturb mode can mute the door lock sounds within a certain period of time, to avoid affecting your family’s sleep when you get back home late.
Battery Powered & Secure
The U100 is powered by 4 AA 1.5V batteries (included) and has a long battery life of up to 8 months. Also, a USB-C port for emergency charging is available. The lock body made of zinc alloy has an IP65 rating and complies with the same safety standard as BHMA Level 3. It’s capable of withstanding temperatures ranging from -31°F to 151°F. Your sensitive data (e.g., fingerprints) is stored locally and fully AES encrypted.
Although the Smart Lock U100 works with Aqara Home and Apple Home apps out-of-the-box, you will need a Matter-compatible Aqara Hub – such as the H2 – in order to enable Matter support.
