Bluetooth Padlock Security for Your Storage Unit


What is Noke Padlock?

Noke is a smart lock that automatically syncs with smartphone devices via Bluetooth making it easier than ever to keep your things safe. Noke Smart Locks allow keyless access to your storage unit by simply downloading an app on your iOS, Android or Windows phone.

Why use Noke Smart Padlocks?

Keys have been used to open locks for centuries. But keys have the same problems today as they did back then. They are easy to lose, they can be stolen, they are a pain to share, and if you share them, you must get them back. Sharing combinations has its own set of issues. Noke solves the problem of being able to share access to your possessions easily, safely, and securely.

By using Noke keyless locks and your smartphone, you’ll always have easy access to your storage unit. After all, when was the last time you were without your smartphone? Most of us don't leave the house without our phones or wallets. Once you’ve downloaded the iOS or Android app, Noke automatically finds and pairs to your Bluetooth 4.0 enabled smartphone. It's easy!

Sharing access to a storage unit with a family member, friend, or coworker is easy using the iOS, Android or Windows Phone app. Noke allows instant and secure sharing without the use of a physical key. You can program permanent, one-time, or custom settings for unlocking the Noke padlock. Do you need to give your office manager access to pick up files for a court case or an audit? No problem.

Monitor Storage Access Using Noke Smart Padlocks

Noke is great for businesses that may have multiple people needing access to the storage unit. In addition to granting access on specific days and times, you can use the history function to track who is using your Noke and when. You can also set up push notifications in the app if you’d like to know when Noke is being opened.

To unlock Noke, simply press the shackle. Noke wakes up and searches for your phone or a shared phone. If the authorized phone is within a few feet, Noke will instantly unlock so you can be on your way. No need to launch an app or even remove your phone from your pocket or purse.

Custom Access Code for Noke

What if you forget your phone (eeek!!) or your battery dies? It's not a problem. Using the Quick-Click technology allows you to create a custom access code. Think Morse code. Using Quick-Click, you can set up a password of short and long clicks that corresponds with an existing password you have elsewhere or to the beat of a song you love. If you’re ever without your phone, simply key in those clicks and it will instantly unlock for you. You’ll never worry about being keyless and locked out again.

Noke Padlock Reviews and Feature Roundup

"The makers of this lock really took the time to make a solid lock and a polished app. If you’re looking for a secure padlock style lock that is capable of unlocking via Bluetooth or manual taps as well as sharing access, this is definitely something you want to check out." –R. Adams

"I love the ability to share a temporary ‘key’ with a friend or family member. I can send them to my storage unit so they can get something without compromising my lock code. I can set up a temporary code, or one that is time specific. Easy to set up in the app. It keeps track of when it was opened or locked, and who did it. Overall, I really think this was a home run." –T. Hall

Benefits of Noke Smart Padlock

It’s strong. Noke is made from hardened steel and boron and uses the latest in anti-shim technology that regular padlocks do not have.

It's water resistant. Noke is protected with four silicone gaskets to keep the water out and there are no external buttons. Do not hesitate using it on outdoor storage units.

It has security features. Noke uses Bluetooth 4.0 which contains the highest level of security. Bluetooth 4.0 uses a 128-bit AES CCM encryption algorithm along with Noke's own PKI technology and cryptographic key exchange protocol to ensure Noke keeps your valuables safe and secure.

It has a long-lasting battery. Noke has a long-life battery that will last over a year with normal use. Only need access to your storage unit once in a while? It could last a few years. Battery replacement is easy, too.
