Features and Specifications
The Ultraloq UL3 BT Smart Lock is essentially a keyless lock that has been upgraded for optimum versatility and convenience. The Ultralog UL3 BT is a Bluetooth-enabled lock featuring fingerprint and code access, as well as some unique app features like knocking and shaking to unlock. (1)
Here’s a summary of some of the capabilities this smart lock offers.
You don’t have to worry about the UL3 getting wet because it has an IP65 rating. Even if you install it on an exterior door, this guarantees that it always works correctly.
Even if your hands are full, thumbprint entry allows you to simply enter your home. You don’t have to be concerned about misplacing your keys any longer. All you have to do with the UL3 is use your thumb.
If your thumbprint scanner fails, you can always use your keypad to get access to your home. You’re still avoiding having to use your keys. It’s a quick and easy way to get in and out of your house.
Sense of Recognition
When your hand approaches the lock, the UL3 automatically lights up. That means you won’t have to bring out your phone to view the keypad if it’s dark outside. This is a useful function, especially in dimly light situations.
95 Different Users
The Ultraloq UL3 can accommodate up to 95 users. That’s a total of 95 unique thumbprints or keycodes. It’s comforting to know that if you forget something, you may call on a neighbor or acquaintance who has access to your home.
Uses AA Batteries
Some smart devices come with their own batteries. That implies you’ll have to wait for a replacement if it dies. Luckily, the Ultraloq UL3 isn’t one of those devices. It runs on normal AA batteries, which you probably already have on hand.
There are five ways to access your home, four of which are keyless. You can open the lock using a unique code, your fingerprint, or your smartphone. To open the door, the fingerprint feature captures up to 95 percent of your fingerprint and detects the pattern in 0.5 seconds.
Complete App Control
You can acquire complete control of your door by using the Ultraloq app. The app operates on low-energy Bluetooth and does not require internet access to function. During the installation of another Ultraloq system, it can be used to view users and logs, open/close the door, and clone existing users.
When using your smartphone, you have the option of using the Ultraloq app or simply knocking/shaking to unlock. iOS users can touch four times on their smartphone’s screen, however, Android users must open their phone’s screen and shake the device. (2)
Display that is Ergonomic
The Ultraloq lock has an anti-scratch touchpad and an ergonomic waterproof OLED display. The touchpad is equipped with anti-peep technology, which allows you to enter a series of random digits in addition to your unique code.
As long as the code is embedded within the numbers you enter, your door will remain open. Low battery warnings are also displayed on the user-friendly display. (3)
Materials that are Long-Lasting
Any Ultraloq UL3 BT Smart Lock review will tell you that this is one of the most durable door locks on the market. It has a single latch and a reversible handle that is very easy to use and is composed of sturdy zinc alloy and metal.
All of the materials are weatherproof, and the three AA batteries will provide you entry to your home up to 8,000 times. For most families, this is more than a year’s worth of use. Other minor features include auto-relock, lockout, and passage, as well as a DIY installation kit and a user handbook.
