Poly‑Control has unveiled Danalock Version 2 for the U.S. market during CEDIA Expo 2015. This smart lock solution turns a smartphone into a high-tech digital key for home security. Danalock’s already unrivaled flexibility with Bluetooth (BLE) and Z-Wave compatibility now adds support for Nest, Harmony, Wi-Fi, and Zigbee protocols to expand interoperability with home automation systems, while improving the ability to remotely control door access. In addition, a new lock-state sensor recognizes dead bolt state, ensuring a more intuitive installation process and improving the user experience.
Danalock V2 knits strong Bluetooth signal recognition with the broadest range of communication protocols on the market. On entry or exit, Danalock signals the Zigbee or Z-Wave alarm systems to disarm or arm automatically. Integration with Nest and Harmony relay to home automation systems to raise or lower temperatures or adjust lighting on the entrance or exit signal from Danalock. And Wi-Fi integration offers even more flexibility by enabling homeowners to remotely unlock/lock the door for children or visitors such as contractors and housekeepers.
Danalock V2 has taken the pain out of installation. A U.S.-specific mount that requires no modification of the lock’s tailpiece means the new Danalock fits over the tail and mounts solidly on the bracket. A new sensor identifies the state of the dead bolt as locked or open and, with the help of the Danalock widget, the install process is fully automated. No manual inputs are required.
Danalock V2 starts at $179 for Bluetooth only and is $199 for a dual version with Bluetooth and either Z-Wave or Zigbee compatibility.
