Open for comfort: smart lock to your home.


Return hands-free

Coming back home with groceries becomes a seamless walk-in. Automatic unlock with pull-spring feature opens the door as if you pushed the handle. No more looking for keys!

Unlock wherever you are

When somebody comes to water your plants, borrow a book or deliver a package, you can unlock the door from wherever you are. Yes, it will lock by itself after they leave.

Know who’s home

Don’t worry – you’ll get a push notification when your child comes back from school. Real-time alerts and history give you full access to the flow of people in your home.

Trigger smart home routines

Turn lights on when your enter. Stop the music when you leave. As a part of your smart home, the lock becomes a trigger for all kinds of automated scenes.

Open with voice command or smartwatch

You don’t need to rush to the door or wash your hands in the middle of cooking. Tell Siri, Alexa or Google Assistant to open the door to visitors while you get ready. You can tap the widget on your smartwatch, too.

Let services in

Just once or every Tuesday morning, make your home available for cleaning services or maintenance. You can share access to your home on a one-time, periodical and permanent basis.

Open for visitors: smart lock changes short-term rental.


Give access with an app

Booking received? Grant your guests access to the place with a click in the app. It sends them an e-mail with registration links. When they log in, it’s like they have the keys already.

Control booking time

You can set your rental to be available only in a fixed time frame: from check-in to check-out hours.

Never handle keys again

Keys may get lost, stolen, forgotten – or duplicated. They are a hassle for visitors and yourself. Change to smart lock and never make extra, hand over or collect keys again.

Forget appointments

Handing over and collecting the keys requires scheduling that nobody wants – especially on vacation. Let your guests arrive whatever time they wish, and unlock with their smartphone.

Rent remotely

Wherever you are, you can grant access to your administrator, cleaning services or repairs. It is possible to manage your place – or many of them – from wherever you are.

Check the status

In the app, you can always access your smart locks’ history of use and battery level.

Open for business: smart lock makes access control easy.


Discard work keys

Your employees use smartphones anyway. With smart locks, these are excellent replacements for work keys and access cards.

Manage from desktop

Maintaining multiple smart locks, employee accesses, and even organizations still is convenient, thanks to a dedicated business interface.

Control precisely

You can grant access to a single door or a whole building, permanent or just 9-to-5, Monday to Friday. A complete history of events is always available, too.

Share the administration

There are three levels of access to a smart lock: owner, administrator, and guest. This way, you can grant control over access to your office manager, IT service, or security team.

Pay once

Access to the tedee business portal is free. This way, running access management at your company costs just as much as smart locks.

Customize your setup

Public cloud-based API gives your developer a chance to integrate smart locks into diverse professional solutions: from hotels through residential buildings to head offices.
