CNET First Look: Goji Smart Lock, the lock that knows who’s knocking.

Goji SmartLock has a proximity-based camera, accelerometer, and connected phone app turns this lock into a remote detection system…and it allows customized keyless entry, too.

The lock will take a picture when someone knocks on the door and stores the picture in a cloud.

The lock can be setup so that a key can only be used during certain times of the day.

Under $300 if you know your way around installing a deadbolt.


Hands-on with Kwikset and UniKey’s Kevo keyless entry system.

CNET has a demo that shows that an unwanted person with a key will not be able to enter, even if the controlling iPhone is within range on the inside of the door. Phones require Bluetooth 4.0. If no compatible phone is available for the owner, a keychain FOB is also available for use. Costs about $219.

No more fumbling with or looking for your keys. All you need to unlock your Kevo lock is your smartphone. You don’t even need to take your smartphone out of your pocket or purse; it’s as simple as walking up, touching your lock, and walking in. The ultimate level of convenience.

– UniKey

    I’d go for Goji. The Kwikset smark key locks look super easy to hack – http://www.wired.com/threatlevel/2013/08/kwikset-smarkey-lock-vulns/

  2. Peter Gwen says:

    Funny, the outside of the Kwikset looks metal. The Goji lock is glass…need I say more. That little hinge on the Goji looks pretty easy for a crook to just rip off the door. Look closely at the Goji photos and you’ll notice that the Goji locks say “Kwikset” on the end latch piece. Goji must use the Kwikset mechanics themselves. The link you posted is not a “hack” by any means, but rather a destructive entry method, as we locksmiths call them and if by “super easy” you mean hammering a specially machined hardened steel spike through a lock, then I’d say drilling a door would be much easier than trying to defeat a Kwikset. I can drill through most any lock in under ten seconds. As the saying goes, locks keep honest people honest. A foot in the door, or rock through the window will win everytime. Id pick the Kevo between these two.
