We're very serious about that

Security

The Loqed Smart Lock was built with security as a requirement from the start. Nobody, not even Loqed employees, are able to control your smart lock. If you’re a security expert, read on to find out more about Loqed’s security.

How does InstantOpen™ (touch to open) work?

The Loqed Smart Lock uses InstantOpen technology that ensures maximum security, while letting you enjoy the ease of entering with a touch in a split second. When you are approaching your door (~10 meter), InstantOpen will party unlock your door. Only when you are right in front of the door (~3 meter), and touch the Loqed front module, the Loqed Smart Lock will open the door for you.

More secure than other smart locks

Conventional smart locks can prematurely open your door, because they solely rely on Bluetooth proximity. For example, when you are parking your car, or just walk by your door, conventional smart locks will fully unlock and open your door – while you’re not there yet.

The Loqed Smart Lock always makes sure you are within 3 meters of distance of your door, and you have to touch the Loqed Front module. Only then the Loqed Smart Lock will open your door. That way, the Loqed Smart Lock guarantees your door will stay securely closed until you are right in front of it.

Partly unlocking can be disabled

In some cases, for example when you have access to your neighbor’s door that is right next to yours, it can be smart to disable InstantOpen for the door that you rarely use. This prevents the lock from partly unlocking the door and later locking it again when it notices that you do not want to open it. This setting can be set on a per-user basis by the administrator or by the user. You can still open that door with the app or your personal code.

Automatic calibration

Every time you touch the Loqed Smart Lock, it automatically calibrates the distance between your phone and your door. Is is important because not all phones are transmitting with the same transmission power. This ensures your touch to open the door is only accepted when you are right in front of it.

Inside/outside detection

The Loqed Smart Lock measures whether your phone is inside or outside your house. When you are inside, the touch to open functionality for this phone is disabled. The Loqed Smart Lock uses two antennas (one on the inside module, and one on the outside module) to be able to detect this.

SKG-IKOB

The loqed Smart Lock is currently being tested by SKG-IKOB (the national security testing institute of The Netherlands) and we expect to receive the highest security rating. The testing procedure will however take time, especially because also the production quality control has to be checked.

A more secure cylinder

Traditional cylinder locks are vulnerable to different kinds of attacks by burglars. The Loqed Smart Lock has solved these issues once and for all: we removed the vulnerable keyhole from the lock completely. To make sure you can always access without a metal backup key or when the lock is out of power, it features code access and an emergency power connector. 

256-bit end-to-end encryption

Loqed uses 256-bit end-to-end encryption, as used by banks, for communication to the lock. The encryption key is only stored in the secure key-chain of your phone and on the Loqed Smart Lock itself. This means that if you lose your phone, forget your account password and forget your personal access code at the same time, we simply cannot open the door for you.

Encryption keys sent to newly added users are not sent over the Loqed servers, but by a messaging application (e.g. e-mail, Whatsapp) of your choice. This ensures that even Loqed employees can never retrieve the encryption keys. New users need to change their encryption key after receiving it for the first time (the Loqed app does this automatically), to prevent user impersonating by the administrator. Finally, encryption keys are renewed on a regular basis, so that brute force attacks are pointless.

Remote blocking of lost phones/codes

Lost your phone or personal access code? Simply remotely block access from any internet browser.

Key copying

Unlike traditional keys, the digital key cannot be easily copied. The Loqed Smart Lock uses a unique key per user.
