In order to protect our valuables there are all sorts of locks available, and speaking of locks, today we have a special padlock that works with your smartphone.
Padlocks are useful, but you need to have a special set of keys in order to unlock it, but OckCorp has developed an electronic padlock that can be locked or unlocked with your smartphone. TEO padlock pairs with your smartphone via Bluetooth which means that you use your smartphone as a key, but you can also modify the permissions and allow other people to unlock TEO padlock for certain amounts of time. This can be useful if you want to allow your family members or your colleagues temporary access. In addition, you can monitor access history in order to prevent misuse. If you happen to run out of battery, you can easily pair your new phone, and if TEO padlock runs out of battery there’s a special technology that will allow you to “jump start” the lock.
OckCorp TEO padlock sounds great, but so far, it’s just a Kickstarter project, but if it reaches its funding goal we might see it available for sale in near future.
