The Keymitt device can sense unauthorised/unexpected activity and alert the owner through push notifications on mobile device and/or email. The lock status is available in Keymitt app: whether the door is locked or unlocked, who entered and when, and what is the battery level. Remote locking, monitoring and alerts are enabled with the use of the Wi-Fi bridge - Hub.

Hacking a smart lock is an extremely difficult task, new generation smart locks are equipped with high security algorithms. For example, Keymitt uses a highly secure AES 256 (Advanced Encryption Standard) encryption algorithms. There is no known practical attack that would allow someone without knowledge of the key to read data encrypted by AES.

Managing one or dozens of properties on the same dashboard has never been easier. There are opportunities to further enhance the guest experience and make their arrival even more seamless by enabling access to personal parking garages with the tap of the button. MicroBot push can be installed on your gate control station. Use the Keymitt app to control and share access.
