Say goodbye to keys forever. Now LiFi unlocks doors with light from smartphones

A French startup named HAVR has made the BrightLock, the first smart lock that connects through LiFi. LiFi enables users to unlock their doors with light from their smartphones.

Unlike most smart locks, which are often plagued by wavelength interferences, light signals are more secure than common radio-frequencies. Users will only have to flash their phones to unlock their doors, as opposed to entering a passcode. In addition, users can share access with whoever they want for specific or unlimited periods of time.

At the moment, the BrightLock can only be pre-ordered on the HAVR website. But it is expected that the product will be available in retail stores across Europe by August. The lock is compatible with European cylinders, used in both Europe and Asia.

LiFi technology increases security for connected devices, which are notoriously insecure. Earlier this year, researchers found major security flaws in hotel smart locks which would allow a user to open any room in a building with a single key card. As large hotel chains like Marriott begin to integrate smart home platforms like Amazon Alexa into their hotel rooms, the BrightLock’s LiFi technology is a great alternative to shaky Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connections.
