What does a smart bridge do?
It connects to your lock with Bluetooth and to the internet via Wi-Fi: like a bridge between your device and the global network.
Using a bridge gives you features available only in the online mode: auto-unlock, remote opening, notifications and auto-updates.
It also enables more opportunities for integration with voice assistants and smart home systems.
You can plug it directly into a power socket or connect it with a micro USB, up to 2m away from your lock
Are you getting back with your hands full? With the automatic feature, you don’t have to look for your keys or smartphone. The door unlocks as soon as you get near.
Frequently Asked Questions
Which features require a bridge?
You can find the comparison of features available with and without the bridge on our smart lock blog.
Does the bridge require an internet connection?
Yes, it needs to be placed in the Wi-Fi range that is connected to the internet.
Can I connect multiple locks to one bridge?
Yes, you can connect as many locks as you want - as long as they are up to 2m away from the bridge. This way, you can usually use just one bridge in corridors and other multidoor spaces.
