The Genie Smart Lock is a new smart lock that connects your door handles to the Internet. This allows you to lock and unlock your door remotely as well as share digital keys with friends, neighbors and family. It also enables you to keep track of movement in and out of house and, perhaps most importantly for clumsy people, allows you get into your home without having to fumble for your keys in an ungainly manner.

The Genie Smart Lock is said to boast a battery life of one year, which is a significant improvement over many existing Internet-connected smart locks.

The product is currently in its 'engineering phase' and is some way away from being completed. The developers are expected to launch a crowdfunding campaign soon to fund production of this nifty gadget.
