Aqara has announced the launch of an entry-level 'Smart Lock U50' with advanced features like Apple home key unlocking and Matter compatibility over a bridge.

The Smart Lock U50 offers multiple secure entry options including Apple home keys, which allow for effortless unlocking with a simple tap of an iPhone or Apple Watch. Homeowners can also manage and share home access with one-time and recurring passwords, as well as NFC cards. Physical keys are provided for added peace of mind, and the lock includes a USB-C port for emergency charging, ensuring access is never lost even if batteries are depleted.

The U50 integrates both Zigbee and Bluetooth communication, allowing it to connect directly to the Aqara Home app for easy setup, lock management, and firmware updates without needing an Aqara hub. However, connecting to an Aqara hub enhances its capabilities, offering compatibility with a wide range of Matter-compatible smart home platforms, including Alexa, Apple Home, Google Home, SmartThings, and more. This connection also enables remote access control and lock management and allows the U50 to interact with other smart home devices for customized automation.

Additional features of the U50 include


● Auto-lock and door status sensing via a built-in gyroscope;
● Rekeyable design to match an existing 5-pin key;
● Weather-resistant construction against heat, cold, and moisture (IPX5 outer panel);
● Up to six months of battery life on a single set of four AA batteries;
● Do-Not-Disturb mode for uninterrupted sleep and privacy;
● Easy installation requiring only a Phillips-head screwdriver.

Pricing and Availability


The Smart Lock U50 is now available for $149.99. For a limited time, you can get 20% off using the coupon USCAU50P.
