A master key allows to open many doors with the same key. It’s a great solution for houses or bigger apartments, so we made sure Locky is compatible. Thanks to the BLE stickers expansion, your Locky will be able to infallibly recognize every entrance, and take better care of your home’s security.
What is a master key system
A master key is a very popular and convenient solution used in institutions, houses, and apartments with more than one entrance. Its utility is based on the ability to open multiple locks without the need to carry a huge set of keys. It allows to open the front door, back door, garage door, or any other with just one key.
Seemingly, a master key doesn’t differ much from an ordinary key. It’s unique because of the lock. A conventional latch, just like the one you have in your door, is associated with an individual key. A basic mechanism unlocks when the correct key is inserted, and the door is open.
And the best thing? Locky is compatible and works great with the master key solution! ☺
Master key with Locky
If you are using a master key system, you will need the Locky with BLE stickers set. For Locky to be able to track more than one door and recognize them, it needs an additional beacon device. We use beacons from a trustworthy producer that has been on the market for years. We add them to our sets as the very convenient BLE stickers which you can easily stick on the respective doors. Then you only need to connect the Locky overlay with the beacons, and enter and name each door in the Locky app. From now on, one Locky will monitor all the entries into your home, which means you will be able to check their status at any given moment.
A family solution
Moreover, nothing stops you from using Locky with the master key alongside other users. If every person in your family has their own Locky overlay – all it takes is to configure the users in your app. This means you can track who opens orcloses which door on your phone. Did your children lock the door after coming back from school, did they come back and when, did your partner definitely close the garage door, and so on…
We are trying to expand Locky into a complete home security system, but the main goal – as always – is to keep it as simple as possible. BLE stickers are exactly that: they’re small, functional, effortless in application and use, and don’t make using Locky any harder. If you live in a house or a bigger apartment – Locky with BLE stickers will allow you to comprehensively take care of its security. It’s an amazing solution for families, if your close ones happen to forget about locking the door – you’re on watch! All it takes is a quick glance at the Locky app and you can be a 100% certain about how things are going at your house.
