Oh, wow, that is really, really disappointing.
I was promising my whole family that we won’t distribute keys to the kids but instead become a smart family with a smart entrance solution. Losing a key would costs thousands in our rental house/apartment because they would immediately call a service to exchange at least our lock.
So there came NUKI – I thought.
My 10-year-old daughter has an iPhone and is able to open the house-door via Opener and then the SmartLock at the appartment-door. She can’t lose a key, and she will probably not lose her iPhone…
The 6-year-old daughter was also excited to get a Fob and be able to come home from school earlier and unlock house-door (Opener) and apartment-door (SmartLock) all by herself.
We even have a Bridge, which I thought would bridge between the internet, the WiFi and the products using Bluetooth.
Now it seems that the Fob is kind of a random thing which connects to the Opener (3 m distance Opener to house-door) and then does nothing any more. The bridge (thin wall and just 2 m distance to apartment-door) is not able to say: “Hi Fob, I recognize your press – you have opened the Opener/house and now you want to open the SmartLock/apartment.”
The Fob will be treated like a stupid bluetooth device and the Opener will also not be a very smart part of this system?
I might need a voucher for a second Fob for my younger daughter, so she can do one process with two (stickered) Fobs: 1 for the Opener and 1 for the SmartLock.
Otherwise it’s a truly sad discovery, and I will not risk letting my daughter stand in the cold and playing bluetooth-roulette.
Please tell me what to do. I cannot buy her a smart phone instead of a Fob – she’s in first grade.
