Smart Lock options in Switzerland

Anyone here using a smart lock here?

I like the one by August, but as far as I know, it is not available here and doesn't fit Swiss doors?

Re: Smart Lock options in Switzerland

"Sorry honey, I can't get the tickets to that concert which are in my flat, the batteries on my lock died!"

On a tangent, I have an imaginary friend who set up everything in his life to be controlled by his iphone. TV, lights, locks, car, apple pay, etc.
Then he lost his phone.

But those locks do look slick

Re: Smart Lock options in Switzerland

The August smart lock only replaces the lock on the inside, you can still use your key on the outside if you want. That's why I think it is such a good solution.

Re: Smart Lock options in Switzerland

I would suggest first googling "August smart lock hack". August was apparently quite fast to patch the code, but still.

Re: Smart Lock options in Switzerland

I would suggest that since the product does not seem to be usable here, it is of little consequence. Seems like Smart Locks are very rare here.

Probably good, probably not cheap.

It needs keycards/fobs though. The smartphone app is just for programming the lock.

Aha... I stand corrected. Again. I'll be in the corner with the pointy hat for a bit.

Why would this product not "fit Swiss doors"? And what about new doors -- surely it could be imported and fitted to a new door?

Re: Smart Lock options in Switzerland

I'm no door expert, but it's what I heard, that it is not compatible with uk and swiss "standard" doors.

The mortice spacing is different to the traditional North American spec, although I did see some DIN spec stuff the last time I was in Home Despot.

I'm sure it could be done. Anything can be done with enough dedication.

Re: Smart Lock options in Switzerland

I'm sure it could, but it sounds like quite a fuss.

I spent a lot of energy getting my Nest Thermostat installed, which is also not officially supported here.
