KeyWe may not be the only company showing off smart locks at CES, but the Deadbolt GKW-2000D smart lock has some interesting ways of unlocking your door and keeping your home secure.

First, I have to commend on the minimalistic that the Korean startup has given, it doesn’t look over complicated and intimidating like some smart locks, and it does look futuristic  than some I’ve seen.

Since the Deadbolt GKW-2000D supports the Z-Wave protocol, it can be connected to your home WiFi network and works with Alexa and Google Assistant. KeyWe’s app gives you total control of the lock when you are not around, you can do things such as changing the passcode for each user and setting a temporary access code for your guests.

I was particularly impressed with its ability to unlock itself when it senses you are close to the premises using Bluetooth Low Energy, which makes your smartphone an alternative key and you will require to create a geofence distance for it to work.

If you require some extra security, you can also configure it to only unlock once you touch the capacitive numpad area by enabling its Magic Touch option. As for power, the smart lock uses 4 AA batteries and can last up to one year.

The Deadbolt GKW-2000D smart lock was successfully crowdfunded on Kickstarter last year and has received US$558,833 (RM2.28 million) of funding, it is available in Malaysia via its authorised distributor Eagle Secure Tech Sdn Bhd located at Kota Damansara, customers can head over to www.keywe.com.my to check out KeyWe’s range of products.
