Codelocks WiFi Gateway delivers enhanced remote access control for Codelocks Smart Locks
Codelocks newly released WiFi Gateway offers the next level of control and convenience to smart lock users. One WiFi Gateway allows a user to control up to four compatible Codelocks Smart Locks from any WiFi connected mobile device.
WiFi Gateway by Codelocks works in conjunction with the K3 Connect App, giving the user extended range and enhanced functionality. Remote smart access control features include locking and unlocking, programming, client management, NetCode generation and more.
Until the arrival of the WiFi Gateway, users would need to control Codelocks Smart Locks individually using the K3 App on a Bluetooth enabled device. The device would therefore need to be within range of each individual lock while performing app functions. WiFi Gateway by Codelocks offers a more convenient way to manage small numbers of smart locks by connecting to them over a WiFi network. To control more than four locks, or control locks over a wider area, users can simply add additional WiFi Gateways as required.
The remote features enabled by the WiFi Gateway and K3 Connect App include:
- Unlocking locks
- Setting lock parameters and access restriction
- Managing users' access through phone, card and code
- Generating NetCodes
- Retrieving audit information
- Receiving lock event notifications
- Checking locks' current status
Colin Campbell, Managing Director at Codelocks said, "WiFi Gateway is the perfect solution for small businesses that are looking for a convenient way to manage their smart locks. By extending the range of the K3 Connect App and enabling enhanced remote capability, it gives administrators the ability to effectively manage and control connected locks without having to leave their desks."
Measuring just 50mm x 41mm x 15mm, WiFi Gateway by Codelocks is powered by a USB type A connector and can support a maximum of four locks within a range of 5 metres. To run the K3 Connect App, smart devices must be running either Android version 4.3+ or an iPhone running iOS 10.0+.The new WiFi Gateway is ideal for businesses that are already using multiple Codelocks Smart Locks and looking to unlock the next level of convenient access control.
