Friday Labs brings design & style to smart lock

Techstination feature for Friday, October 27, 2017

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.    A company called Friday Labs is making it simple for home owners to add a connected smart lock….without having to replace all of their door hardware.      All that the Friday Lock requires you to do….is replace the thumb turn.   A pretty simple job.   And the design really stands out.  CEO Marcus Tempte…

“We decided to kind of enlarge a thumb turn and try to squeeze all the electronics and mechanical parts into this very, very tiny footprint.   So that should shine through that it’s a very, very different heritage behind the product itself.”

There are styles available to match your décor with easily replaceable shells.   Friday uses a rechargeable battery and works with apps on iOS and Android to let you control the lock from anywhere.  It can also use geofencing to unlock for you automatically when you arrive home.
