Keyless locks are great for not having to worry about keys, but people who live in communal homes that use an intercom system often seek an alternative solution. With the 'Monkey' smart device by Locumi Labs, users can easily integrate smart lock technology into an existing intercom.

To make this communal keyless lock system work, a small chip is easily installed into an intercom system that then syncs with a user's Wi-Fi network. The innovative system requires no charging because it feeds off the existing intercom's power supply and works with a companion app on your smartphone device. Users are then able to open doors or gates by using either a remote command on their phone, through GPS proximity or during certain pre-set time windows.

With this smart entry device, those living in communal homes finally don't have to worry about fumbling with or even losing a set of keys when heading home at the end of the day.
