Bottom Line

The Wafu Tiger lock is one of the few “Tiger” style locks available for purchase today.

Perfect for interior doors or cabinets that wouldn’t fit traditional smart locks the Wafu version comes with additional key fobs for remote opening and locking as well as the ability to purchase a USB Bluetooth accessory that can lock and unlock the device using your phone.

The lock has a few drawbacks including no access code support for the app and a short battery life of only 6 months on two AA batteries that are not even included in the package.

That being said if you really need this style lock for your door this is one of the only commercially available locks on the market for you and worth a shot.
