Topic # 141399 11-Mar-2014 15:50 Send private message

I just tried (pre)ordering a smart lock for my front door from www.august.com but they wont ship outside US, Canada & Mexico as they're "targeting international regions" later this year, even after I sent pics of a compatible lock mechanism and told them I'd accept all risk.

Does anyone have any other lock suggestions? I'd like something that unlocks as I get near as both the Mrs and I often have our hands full after a day at work and keys are annoying. (first world problem).

Comgateway will if you cant find one in Oz. You dont have to worry about a preorder, just give August the shipping address.

yes but if you hide the bulk of the interface you wont even notice its "commercial " heritage. a standard electronic lock hooked to some sort of hidden bluetooth reciever or even a small rfid or ibutton reader hidden in a doorbell case?
