By the name itself, Goji Smart Lock sounds interesting – after all, it’s basically keyless. Yea, a door lock designed not only to make sure you locked your door but to notify you of people who went to your house, or those trying to forcibly enter it.. and that is by sending you a text message and a picture of the visitor.
Hmm… this seems just like a CCTV only in a different name and package, huh? Of course, the CCTV is basically to monitor people while Goji is for added protection to your house’s door lock.
Well, it is said that Goji is an “electronic” system with a built-in WiFi and works specifically with smartphones – iPhone 4S and higher, and Samsung Galaxy S3 and up with a 24/7 customer service assistance to help you lock or unlock your door – yes, from anywhere in the world.
And that’s just the beginning of the story..
Once the easy-to-install locking system is fastened, Goji could monitor your door up to 6 feet out. So if it’s you or anyone you give access to approaches, the door automatically opens even greeting you by your name; this is especially useful for those who do you professional services when you’re not around like housecleaning.
And in case you are to authorize an elderly or a child who doesn’t really carry smartphones, access could also be gained through an electronic Bluetooth fob which you could get from Goji. Otherwise, one could also open the door in a more traditional manner by using its key (which mainly exists for back up purposes).
Nevertheless, amazing as this $278 locking system sounds, people who are really concerned with security would ask this..
Isn’t there any chemical (or anything that could deactivate the system) that an intruder could shoot from more than 6 feet away be used? This means accessing undetected. After all, Goji is still a machine.. and when there’s a will, there’s a way. Got the point?
