Goji Smart Lock Makes Your Existing Deadbolt Seem Lackluster
It's just another step in home automation becoming more mainstream. The Goji Smart Lock works with Bluetooth low energy mobile phones and also works through the home WiFi network, which enables homeowners to operate the lock from anywhere in the world. With the Goji Smart Lock, homeowners no longer need to carry a conventional key. Instead, their smart phone activates the deadbolt lock when they approach the door. Homeowners can grant day- and time-specific access privileges to people, for example, to visiting friends and family; service professionals such as contractors, house cleaners and dog walkers; and to short-term renters who use services such as Airbnb. Goji digital keys are encrypted using bank-level encryption and cannot be transferred, stolen or copied like a mechanical key can. In case the homeowner misplaces his phone, Goji offers 24/7 customer service to provide assistance.
Featuring patent-pending technology, the UL-listed Goji Smart Lock consists of the battery-operated deadbolt lock, which homeowners can install themselves in the place of an existing deadbolt, four digital keys and two conventional keys. The company expects the lock to ship in December for around $278, while pre-orders are being accepted now.
