Pros

  • Airbnb Integration and offline pin code generation (See here for more information on how it works).
  • Dedicated Android and iOS apps along with integrations with Alexa and Google Assistant to set new pin codes and retrieve access history.
  • Sleek looking lock that would fit in especially well in modern homes.
  • Innovative fire feature where the alarm will disarm itself if it senses too high of temperatures (50 – 70 degrees celsius) as well as an audio alarm that will sound if the lock is being tampered with or a code has been tried for more than 5 times in a row.
  • Has a set of physical backup keys.

Bottom Line

The Igloohome smart mortise locks packs a range of innovative features into a sleek design for your mortise style doors.

Airbnb Integration and offline pin code generation (See here https://www.igloohome.co/blog/how-it-works/smart-lock-without-internet for more information on how it works) are a standout feature for this lock and separates it from other locks and avoids having issues with Wifi connectivity and any late night calls from guests not being able to access your rental apartment.

A few alarm sensors are unique to this device include a built-in temperature sensor that will unlock the door automatically if temperature reach between 122-158 degrees. A built-in audio alert will also go off if the lock is being tampered with or codes have been entered 5 times without success.

Overall if you are hesitant to rely on your Wifi for managing access codes but still would like like to have remote key code capabilities this could be a great fit.
