Gate smart lock boasts a wide-angle HD video camera
A new smart lock has been launched that is equipped with all the latest technology.
The Gate smart lock features a built-in, wide-angle video camera that streams live footage to the owners’ Gate app over Wifi or 4G cellular networks. The lock sends a notification when its motion sensor is triggered by someone approaching the door, at which time live video recording begins.
Owners can communicate with guests via Gate’s two-way audio system and continue to observe all activity as the door opens and visitors enter the home.
“We created Gate to help parents and on-the-go homeowners securely manage access to their homes,” said Engle Saez, CEO of Gate. “Whether it’s getting groceries delivered, letting the dog walker in, letting the kids in, receiving Airbnb guests, or permitting a repairman to come in and fix the thermostat while you’re away, Gate lets you grant and manage access, observe activity live and interact with anyone who comes to your door, all from the Gate App on your phone.”
Gate comes with features found on other smart locks, such as the ability to lock and unlock doors remotely, send unique, temporary access codes, and use physical keys as a backup, but what makes it unique is a single unit set up with a standard HD 150-degree field-of-view camera embedded in the lock unit.
“We designed Gate to function as your personal 24/7 doorman,” said Danial Ehyaei, chief technology officer at Gate. “Homeowners can issue onetime codes to individuals they trust, like nannies, dog walkers, neighbours, and delivery or service personnel for access to their homes while they’re away.”
The Gate smart lock sells for US$349.99 and fits any door that uses a standard deadbolt. It can be installed in minutes with just two screws; no additional tools or accessories required.
