With the Nuki Smart Door, the manufacturer already presented a good year ago a smart door that is directly equipped with the manufacturer’s Smart Lock. Here, the complete solution is aimed primarily at new buildings or renovations. Now the Smart Door is finally available.
Nuki Smart Door in detail
With the Nuki Smart Door, the company from Austria presents its first complete solution in the door sector. Here, the product is aimed primarily at new buildings or renovation projects where a new front door is needed (or desired) and a retrofit solution like the Smart Lock 3.0 is not the right thing.
The advantage: the motor lock is integrated directly and completely invisibly into the door. On the inside, you’ll find the familiar controls including the Nuki button that allows you to unlock and lock the lock. The round button supplies power to the motorized lock, while the button itself draws power via wiring on the hinge side of the door.
By fully integrating the mechanism into the inner workings of the door, the Nuki Smart Door is also said to operate much more quietly than the Smart Lock alone. Optionally, it can also be connected to the Nuki Bridge, which enables door control via Bluetooth or the Internet, even remotely.
Of course, all the advantages of the in-house Smart Lock are on board in the Nuki Smart Door. Thus, the door can be opened or closed via smartphone, app, smartwatch or automatically when approached.
In addition, the smart front door can be integrated directly into various smart home systems or voice assistants such as IFTTT, Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant, so that the front door can be opened or locked with the voice. All of the manufacturer’s accessories, such as the Nuki Keypad or the Fob key fob, are of course also compatible.
And if you don’t feel like using the smart options, you can of course also use the door in the classic way with the help of a key.
Multiple partners on board
The assembly of the Nuki Smart Door is done by skilled personnel. For this purpose, the manufacturer also works with various partners such as DANA, Gaulhofer, KAPO and many more in the manufacturing process. On the homepage of the manufacturer can be seen where corresponding partners are located.
The providers are currently concentrating mainly on Austria, Switzerland and southern Germany. However, there are already some partners in the area around Frankfurt am Main, in North Rhine-Westphalia or in Berlin.
Alternatively, a custom Smart Door can also be made by carpenters, but then only as a wooden door. To these, the manufacturer offers a matching assembly set as part of the Pro program, which includes the KFV Genius motor lock, the Nuki Button, the technology and the Nuki Bridge. Private end customers pay 1,999 euros for this, and the price for the wooden door from the carpenter’s store is then added on.
