About RemoteLock

A smart lock allows you to open your door without a physical key. It connects to the internet via Wi-Fi or Z-Wave and receives instructions to lock or unlock from an authorized device. Because of its “connected” nature, a smart lock can be controlled remotely via software on a smartphone or laptop.

Like traditional, mechanical locks, smart locks are comprised of two main parts: the lock and key. This key is not a traditional key, but rather a PIN code, key card or fob, or even a smartphone itself that is specifically configured to wirelessly perform the authentication needed to automatically unlock a door.
Access control software like that from RemoteLock is cloud-based, meaning it uses the internet (or “the cloud”) to transmit data. By logging into your RemoteLock account, you can execute many of the software’s functions–create or revoke access permissions, add or delete users, check power levels on smart locks–right from your laptop or smartphone, from wherever there’s internet access.
Yes. Most smart locks today still lock and unlock without internet connection. PIN-enabled smart locks are also ideal for locations with no or limited access to reliable Wi-Fi.
A self-expiring access code is a PIN code that is generated for a smart lock. In order to control who has access to specific spaces and when, access control software allows you to set exact times for when the PIN is valid. For example, you might generate a PIN code for a plumber to work at your property, but specify the time it’s valid from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m., when the PIN automatically expires and won’t unlock the lock.
Depending on the lock brand, connectivity and type of batteries, smart lock batteries can last for months or even years. Today, many smart locks run on lithium batteries, which can last one to two years, whereas alkaline batteries may need replacing every few months.
Smart locks paired with access control software don’t rely on physical keys. These traditional keys can be easily copied, passed on to others, or lost and fall into the hands of someone you don’t want to give access to your property. Furthermore, there is zero visibility with traditional keys and mechanical locks. With a system like RemoteLock, you see who has entered your property and when. You can also set up alerts for failed access attempts. Best of all, you can easily revoke access in just a few clicks from your dashboard versus the old way of tracking down a physical key.
RemoteLock software uses the same data-encryption protocol that’s used with online banking. So you need not worry.
