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.
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.
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.
