The company has announced that it will be providing current and new users with even more access solutions with the launch of the Matter Link Hub, which will be backward compatible with most current Lockly devices. This enables current devices to be manageable within the Apple Home for the first time, which allows users to control their devices with Siri by integrating with their favorite smart home ecosystem. Known for its feature-rich hardware and seamless software experience, the company also unveiled Visage, the first smart lock under the company’s upcoming Zeno Series of Apple Home and HomeKey compatible products. It is also the first smart lock with facial recognition and built-in Wi-Fi. Visage will also be Matter-compliant with no hub necessary.

The Matter Link marks Lockly’s first step into the new Matter smart home ecosystem. As a hub compatible with most existing Lockly products such as the company’s bestselling Flex Touch, Access Touch, and Secure Plus locks. It enables these locks to seamlessly integrate with popular Matter-supported platforms like Apple Home, Google Home, Amazon Alexa, and Samsung SmartThings. This integration empowers Lockly locks to collaborate effortlessly with other smart home devices, delivering a smoother, more automated experience.

The company is also showcasing its new Visage smart lock, featuring advanced facial recognition technology for keyless entry. With pending certifications coming in 2024 for Matter, Visage will also be Apple HomeKey and Apple Home compatible and allow users to unlock by simply tapping the lock with an iPhone or Apple Watch, or using Siri voice commands. The lock provides fast, secure access with additional capabilities like remote management, activity tracking, and user profiles managed through the Lockly Mobile App. Property owners will be able to oversee permissions, regardless of where they are located, and other advanced features such as Welcome mode and Air Transfer.™.
