Over in Vegas, at CES 2021, Lockly has updated its line-up of security-focused smart locks with two new models.
The Lockly Duo (main image, above) integrates a door latch and deadbolt lock in a single, compact product. It allows users to activate Lockly‚Äôs dual-locking technology by closing a door and raising the latch handle.
Lockly says the Duo smart lock will enable users to secure the latch and deadbolt at the same time, which should make it a lot faster and safer to enter or exit a building.

According to Lockly, the Duo smart lock is compatible with both standard doors and advanced mortise lock upgrades. This is possible because Duo features an interlocking deadbolt and latch bolt faceplate mortise pocket assembly.
Users can manage the Duo smart lock via the Lockly Link WiFi Hub. They can also use this to access features like a voice assistant, 24/7 control, and round-the-clock monitoring, regardless of geographic location.
The Lockly Guard offers main entrance access and security capabilities for sliding and swing-style doors in homes, offices, hotels, rental units, and other buildings.

The Guard (below) features a modern design made from premium materials and can be installed on aluminum or metal door frames.
As an optional extra, users can also get the Guard with a built-in RFID card reader. The latter allows home and business owners to quickly access their properties using contactless technology. Like the Duo, it‚Äôs also compatible with the Lockly Link WiFi Hub.
The proptech firm has also unveiled a new property management system called Lockly Access Portal.
It provides door access monitoring, timed updates, sub-admin controls, and many other features for as many as 1,000 locks. Both the Duo and Guard can be used with this system.
Both locks sport Lockly‚Äôs Genie PIN touchscreen, a hackproof digital keypad, a 3D fingerprint scanner, offline access codes, voice control via Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa, and Apple HomeKit, and support for the Lockly mobile app.
Available on Android and iOS, the Lockly app offers additional features like auto-lock duration, eKey creation, lock access logs, and many other functionalities.
In terms of pricing and availability, the Lockly Duo is set to launch in the first quarter of 2021. It‚Äôll cost $399 and come in two finishes: Satin Nickel or Matte Black. The Guard won‚Äôt be available until the second quarter.
Slightly more expensive than the Duo, it‚Äôll retail at $499 and come in Satin Nickel, Matte Black, and Metallic Chrome.
Both locks will be sold at Lockly.com, Amazon, and other retail outlets.
