Ultion Nuki gains Control4 functionality
British home security specialist Ultion, has launched a dedicated Control4 driver for its acclaimed Ultion Nuki smart lock, allowing seamless integration of door access within whole-home automation systems.
The development makes it the first door-locking solution for Control4 installs that is specifically designed for UK doors, offering installers a superb new security option for whole-house projects, from a trusted British lock expert.
A design optimised specifically for British doors, Ultion Nuki combines superb integration and accessibility options with fully accredited security.
Control4 support adds to an array of ways for homeowners to lock and unlock doors fitted with Ultion Nuki - including Apple HomeKit, Amazon Alexa, Google Home, Ring, IFTTT, and integration with the Airbnb app. It also works with a traditional key.
The development of the new driver, a result of significant investment by the British brand, allows installers to seamlessly operate connected Ultion Nuki locks from Control4’s wide range of touchscreens, remote controls, and apps, for easy integration into discreet custom installations.
Installers also have the freedom to integrate door security in the most suitable way for each project and customise the end user experience to suit.
The driver works with all current and forthcoming Ultion Nuki iterations and accessories, including the Nuki Keypad, wirelessly connecting to a Control4 processor over a network connection, so no special cabling is required.
Additionally, the forthcoming Ultion Nuki Plus will allow for Control 4 installs without the need for a bridge.
Custom install specialists can download the new driver from DriverCentral priced at USD $15.
For further flexibility, Ultion Nuki (along with all Ultion locks) can also be used with the Ultion KeyTag; an official Made for iPhone door key that can be located using Apple's Find My network.
The Ultion lock with Lockdown Mode™ first won over the demanding locksmith market in 2013. Exposing the fact that locks fitted to millions of UK homes could be breached in just nine seconds, along with a £2,000 security guarantee, secured fenestration market success.
Ultion’s innovative technology is recognised for delivering premium security and setting new standards. With usual lock standards requiring 100,000 cycles during testing, Ultion locks undergo 1.1m. Where weather tests require 240 hours, Ultion handles are tested for 8,056 hours. Ultion is the uncompromising name people want fitted on their door.
Headquartered in Graz, Austria, Nuki was founded in 2014 by brothers Martin and Jürgen Pansy and is now the leading smart lock supplier in Europe. Nuki is also the preferred partner of leading companies like Apple, Google, and Airbnb.
