Aqara has announced its first ever deadbolt lock, the Smart Lock U100, featuring support for fingerprints, passwords, and Apple home key. The lock also integrates with Matter and other smart home platforms via the company's hub.

The Smart Lock U100 is a versatile home access solution enabling a keyless lifestyle. Users can unlock with just the touch of a finger, or using the Aqara Home app. The built-in, high-precision fingerprint reader recognizes up to 50 fingerprints, and homeowners can grant and manage home access on the Aqara Home app for not only families but also guests and regular visitors (e.g., dog walkers, babysitters) with up to 75 passwords for permanent, recurring, and one-time access. NFC tags are also supported, allowing easy home access for al. Sensitive access data such as fingerprints and passwords are stored locally on the device and are fully AES encrypted, giving homeowners extra peace of mind. The Smart Lock U100 works out-of-box with Bluetooth, allowing users to connect the lock to the Aqara Home app for device setup, lock control, and firmware update without an Aqara hub.

● Apple Home and Home Key Support - The U100 is a smart door lock that is fully integrated into Apple Home. It can be unlocked with the Apple home keys by simply tapping an iPhone or Apple Watch, even when the iPhone or Apple Watch is out of power. Moreover, you can manage and share door access for your guests in Apple Home.
● Fingerprint and More Ways to Unlock - The Smart Lock U100 offers multiple ways to unlock, including a high-precision fingerprint reader for up to 50 fingerprints, remotely configurable passwords via the Aqara Home app (An Aqara Zigbee 3.0 hub is required), one-time local passwords for visitors, and a mechanical key for emergency use.
● Automations with Aqara and Third-Party Devices - With an Aqara Zigbee 3.0 hub, the U100 is compatible with third-party ecosystems like Google Home, Alexa, IFTTT as well as the Aqara Home app, allowing it to be easily integrated into a wide range of smart home setups and used in smart home automations. For example, when someone presses the Aqara Video Doorbell G4, you will be able to view who is at your door and easily unlock the U100.
● Auto Lock & Do Not Disturb Mode - Thanks to the built-in gyroscope inside the lock, the auto-lock feature locks the door for you after you close it. Alternatively, you can disable this feature and leave the door always open. Also, the Do Not Disturb mode can mute the door lock sounds within a certain period of time, to avoid affecting your family's sleep when you get back home late.
● A Durable and Secure Biometric door Lock with Long Battery Life - The U100 is powered by 4 AA 1.5V batteries (included) and has a long battery life of up to 8 months. Also, a USB-C port for emergency charging is available. The lock body made of zinc alloy has an IP65 rating and complies with the same safety standard as BHMA Level 3.
