LAS VEGAS, NV (January 8, 2024) – Today at CES 2024, Lockly, a property technology company offering the world’s most secure smart locks, announced that it will be providing current and new Lockly users with even more access solutions with the launch of the Matter Link Hub, which will be backward compatible with most current Lockly devices.

This enables current Lockly devices to be manageable within the Apple Home for the first time, which allows users to control their Lockly devices with Siri by integrating with their favorite smart home ecosystem.

Known for its feature-rich hardware and seamless software experience, Lockly also unveiled Lockly Visage, the first smart lock under the company’s upcoming Zeno Series of Apple Home and HomeKey compatible products, and the first smart lock with facial recognition and built-in WiFi. Visage will also be Matter-compliant with no hub necessary.

The Matter Link marks Lockly’s first step into the new Matter smart home ecosystem. As a hub compatible with most existing Lockly products such as the company’s bestselling Flex Touch, Access Touch, and Secure Plus locks, it enables these locks to seamlessly integrate with popular Matter-supported platforms like Apple Home, Google Home, Amazon Alexa, and Samsung SmartThings.

This integration empowers Lockly locks to collaborate effortlessly with other smart home devices, delivering a smoother, more automated experience.

Lockly is also showcasing its new Visage smart lock, featuring advanced facial recognition technology for keyless entry. With pending certifications coming in 2024 for Matter, Visage will also be Apple HomeKey and Apple Home compatible and allow users to unlock by simply tapping the lock with an iPhone or Apple Watch, or using Siri voice commands.

The lock provides fast, secure access with additional capabilities like remote management, activity tracking, and user profiles managed through the Lockly Mobile App, so property owners will be able to oversee permissions no matter where they are located; and other advanced features such as Welcome mode and Air Transfer.

“Smart home technology is rapidly advancing with standards like Matter at the forefront of seamless connectivity. Our goal was to ensure that both our current loyal customers, as well as those that purchase new devices, could enjoy these advancements without having to replace their entire device,” said Cindy Zhou, EVP of Operations at Lockly. “At Lockly, we prioritize security along with innovation to ensure our products don’t just work well independently but integrate flawlessly into smart home ecosystems without compromise.”
