Friday Lock started out as a project on Indiegogo two years ago by Friday Labs, and today the company announced the HomeKit-enabled smart lock is now available for sale in Canada, the U.S., Denmark, Sweden, Finland and Norway on its website.
Friday Labs collaborated on their smart lock with architectural group BIG – Bjarke Ingels Group, the latter responsible for Google’s new headquarters and Hyperloop One. The company says their smart lock is the “world’s smallest and most stylish”, the only lock available on the market that has Bluetooth, WiFi and HomeKit in one product.
Installation does not require a locksmith, as the company’s ‘Universal Baseplate’ makes it easy for homeowners to find a simple match for their lock install. Friday Lock is customizable as there are changeable die cast metal cover shells in copper, bronze, gun metal, brass, silver, nickel satin and porcelain, to match any door design.
Friday Lock, with its HomeKit support, means you can use Siri remotely to lock or unlock your doors, plus also setup automated scenes through the Home app, for those with Apple TV 4 or iPad acting as a home hub. Your door will lock and unlock as you approach it with your iPhone, while users can also share temporary lock codes for friends and family to use. Push notifications will let you know every time the door is opened or closed.
