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.
