Welcome back to Show and Tell, where I unbox sweet tech for every area of your life. More and more companies are creating home security products. Why? They’re in demand. People want to do whatever it takes to keep themselves and their families safe. So, in this episode, we unbox a device just announced at CES 2021: LOCKLY Vision™ Doorbell Camera Smart Lock. This company was a finalist for the Home Depot Innovation Award in 2020, so let’s see how the smart lock checks out.

Different ways to unlock your LOCKLY Vision™

One of the common issues with keypad entry is that experienced people could see where your fingers have smudged certain numbers. But this device has a patented PIN Genie® touchscreen that randomly shuffles the numbers’ locations. There will be no way to backtrack and determine your code. Any unsuccessful attempts will be recorded and saved. The Vision also has biometric entry; if you don’t want to remember a PIN, just use your fingerprint! Worst case scenario, Vision still allows the old-fashioned key entry. 

Temporary codes

What if you need your delivery driver to place your package inside? What if your friend, family member, or babysitter needs to get into the house? Vision has Generate Offline Access™ technology. You can set temporary PIN codes for the person that expires within a specific period of time. Then, you can track how that code was used — and your regular PIN won’t be floating around for someone to find.

Extra functionality

Like every smart product these days, the Vision is also integrated with your smart home assistants, such as Alexa and Google Home. Tell your virtual assistant to lock or unlock your doors whenever you want. Also, the Vision has an HD camera. You’ll be able to see live streaming footage of what’s happening outside your front door – whether people are stealing your packages or checking your locks. This is a special combination of smart lock and smart doorbell technology. What else can the LOCKLY Vision Smart Lock do? Check out the full unboxing video.
