Aqara has announced the release of its new 'Smart Lock U200' featuring support for Matter, Thread, and Apple Home Key.

The U200 distinguishes itself as one of the first Matter-over-Thread locks to support home key unlocking and is also one of the first retrofit smart locks to feature Apple home key.

Built upon the energy-efficient Thread protocol, the U200 lock is designed for extended use. The lock runs on rechargeable Li-Ion batteries and boasts a battery life of up to 6 months between each charge. Additionally, the IPX5-rated wireless keypad is operable with AAA batteries or existing doorbell wiring, which allows for uninterrupted usage.

Features


● Native Matter Support over Thread - The Aqara Smart Lock U200 seamlessly integrates with the robust Matter platform and is compatible with Apple Home, Google Home, Amazon Alexa, Samsung SmartThings, and Aqara Home. With the Aqara Hub M3, you can enable the remote unlock feature and set up automations with other devices within the Aqara Home app. Meanwhile, based on the Thread protocol, the U200 provides enhanced connectivity, more stability, low-power consumption, and longer battery life.
● Apple Home Key & Various Unlocking Methods - The U200 offers a variety of convenient unlocking methods, such as Apple Home Keys (Apple 2-in-1 Matter controller & Border Router required), fingerprint, password, NFC (not included), and more. You can also control the door lock using the app, either via integrated Bluetooth or through Thread for remote access. Additionally, it supports temporary passwords, including one-time passwords and periodic passwords for easy sharing with others, and it also supports mechanical keys for emergency situations.
● Quiet Unlock Mode & Auto Lock - The U200 comes with Quiet Unlock Mode, enabling you to unlock the door slowly, effectively reducing noise levels. Activate this feature right from the keypad: it's a standalone setting that doesn't require a hub or a Thread border router. Additionally, thanks to the built-in gyroscope, the U200 can remind you if the door is left open and even automatically lock it after closure. (This feature can only be used in the Aqara Home app, and please make sure the firmware for the Aqara Home App has been updated to the latest version.)
● Rechargeable Battery & Multi-Power Options - The lock of the U200 is powered by rechargeable Li-Ion batteries with a battery life of up to 6 months( Performance based on up to 8 daily unlocking and locking actions via fingerprint/NFC), ensuring extended performance, and the keypad accommodates 1.5V AAA batteries and offers hard-wired powering capabilities*. It operates flawlessly in extreme temperatures ranging from -15 °C to 66 °C and the keypad is IPX5-rated for outdoor usage. (* AAA batteries are not rechargeable, and a hardwired setup requires a 12V-24V AC or DC power supply.)
● Easy Installation & Wide Compatibility - The U200 is designed for hassle-free installation, fitting over the existing door lock without any drilling or screwing required, making it a convenient and straightforward solution for enhancing home security. The lock is compatible with Euro profiles and select Scandi cylinders. (Note: Please verify compatibility with your door before making a purchase.)
