Looking to upgrade your door lock to an automatic, convenient, and safe smart lock? Ever thought about SwitchBot Lock and Keypad Touch? Do you know that combining these two products together can make your old door and lock even more unique?
So many questions, just one you. We get it.
So, let’s find out a little bit more about what these two products actually are, and show you how you can make your front door lock at home just that little bit better. Read on to find out more!
So what exactly is SwitchBot Lock?
SwitchBot Lock is a simple smart device that can transform your old door lock into an intelligent and safe smart lock. There is no DIY experience needed and you can install it directly onto the knob of your original door lock. Once installed, you can control your door to lock and unlock through your mobile phone, and retrieve the status and information of your door lock via our app.
What this means, is that you no longer need to worry about forgetting to take your keys, or even losing them, and you can say goodbye to waiting outside the door contemplating life whilst you either wait for someone to let you in, or call a locksmith (boo!). Because we all know, coming home to a locked door is probably one of the worst feelings ever.
What is SwitchBot Keypad Touch?
Keypad Touch allows you to use passcodes and fingerprints or even IC cards to unlock SwitchBot Lock without the need to use a smart phone or physical key. You could call it SwitchBot Lock’s soul mate, because in a cheezy kinda way, they were simply just made for each other.
Imagine coming back from your daily supermarket shop, you’re carrying a lot of groceries, and things (and life) are weighing you down a little. Making it a little harder to keep your hands free to help yourself get through the door. In times like these, reaching into your pocket, grabbing out your phone, opening our app… It just ain’t going to happen. So what can you do? Just raise your hand gently and touch the fingerprint reader found on Keypad Touch and boom! Your door will open, and in you go.
What are the benefits of using SwitchBot Lock and Keypad Touch?
SwitchBot Lock can be used alone to unlock and lock with physical keys, via our app, using Apple Watch, and also NFC Tags. But with the SwitchBot Lock and SwitchBot Keypad Touch, you’ll have access to even more unlocking methods!
It not only takes into account the family members that need to open the front door, but also facilitates friends, cleaning services and even pet carers, woof! When no one is at home, you don’t have to worry about running back from wherever you are just to let someone in.
We also suggest pairing SwitchBot Lock and Keypad Touch with other products such as SwitchBot Pan/Tilt Cam 2K, SwitchBot Bot, Curtain, and more. You can build a smart home system unique to SwitchBot in just a few steps, and enjoy home automation scenes without the need for any headaches (or therapy).
Who would benefit the most from SwitchBot Lock and Keypad Touch?
Well, SwitchBot Lock and Keypad Touch really are just for anyone who’s interested in it. But we think the few types of people below will like it just that extra bit more.
People who value the convenience of living alone.
You can now enjoy the same convenience as one might when staying in a hotel. You can enter the door by swiping your fingerprint, password or card. And if you set things up via our app in advance, your family and friends can unlock your door through shared temporary passcodes without having to wait anymore. You can clearly know who enters your home by checking your door lock records in our app, and you will be the only person who can decide who can enter.
Great for safety conscious families.
Have grandparents or parents at home that don’t use smartphones? Or children who seem to lose keys easily? (that was literally me back when I was 18, sorry Mom!) Well, they can now unlock your door using fingerprints or high security passcodes, and if they forget to close your door, our app will notify you that your door lock is not closed to protect your property and prevent strangers from sneaking in.

Also, fingerprint information entered will only be stored on your local device through encryption and will not be uploaded to any cloud services, helping protect your privacy even further!
