Level door lock?

So I thought the below was the coolest thing I’ve seen in a lock mechanism.

It only supports HomeKit though. Unfortunately not Z-Wave wouldn’t have local only access but would this work with HA?

I’m not sure how good the battery placement is.
Would the bolt still be strong enough?

Least informative website ever.

That’s an excellent question. Didn’t even think about that. The concept is cool though. Don’t really like the locks that are out there and the ones that are you can tell almost immediately they are a smart lock which probably isn’t great.

Would the assumption be if it has HomeKit support it should in some way be manageable by HA? I know even though it’s annoying, my ecobee comes up twice because it supports HomeKit.

Just got this lock. It doesn’t use wifi. It uses Bluetooth. Most of the advanced features require a HomeKit hub. Love how simple the installation is and how it integrates with my existing lock hardware. I won’t keep it if I can’t get it to work with Home Assistant.

Very cool. Not sure if you add the HomeKit integration if it will just see it or what. I know my ecobee is double detected and one of the two is homekit. Also any thoughts on the strength of the lock based on a battery being the lock?

It uses Bluetooth, not wifi, so it doesn’t show up as a homekit device in Home Assistant.

According to a Facebook post:
"We test to ANSI Grade 1/A standards, which are the most stringent in the industry. In case you’re interested, this means the lock passes a number of tests, including:

Bolt strength - 1350 lb-f side load
Bolt impact - 2 blows of 148 ft-lb (200 joules)
Bolt saw - 5 minutes @ 5 lb-f
Bolt compressive load - 150 lb-f
250,000 cycles
Slam test - 10,000 cycles
ESD (electrostatic discharge) - Level 4"
