A company called Altro will be introducing a smart lock that combines a keyless lock and video doorbell in one at CES 2019. Dubbed the Altro Smart Lock this in addition to offering keyless control will also function as a video doorbell that will let you talk with people at the door. The smart lock features a number pad that you’d be required to punch into to gain access. Additionally, it also syncs with local Wi-Fi and Bluetooth to allow controlling it remotely.
Interestingly, the Altro Smart Lock can also be operated using voice commands via Alexa and Google Assistant.
Altro Smart Lock informs of someone’s arrival at the door with an alert on a paired phone. You can then pull up the video feed from its dedicated app to see who is at the door and talk to the person(s) if you may. The smart lock records a video footage every time its detects activity and stores it on cloud (the doorbell doesn’t support an SD card)
Scheduled to ship to homeowner next month for $349, it may not seem too affordable for many. But if you consider the price of a smart lock and a video doorbell separately, you’d end-up totaling upward of the Altro Smart Lock’s asking price.
