The latest keyless smart bicycle locks offer more than eliminating the risk of losing your keys. The past year various brands have introduced their version of the smart lock to the market. Some will be released in 2015. Others are already available. Apart from omiting the need for a physical key there are other benefits.
Some smart locks let you easily share your bike with friends or as a rental. Others have alert features that warn you when someone tries to steal your bike or others when you have had an accident. One of these locks even has a sound alarm system. Want to find out which lock suits your needs best? Here are 6 smart bike locks.
Ulock is one of the latest arrivals to the innovative bicycle lock market. It’s one of my favorites since it lets you unlock without having to take your phone out. Others are also able to ‘sense’ you are close to your bike but you still have to open up the app which takes time too. To me this seems like a big plus for the Ulock.
Proximity lock and unlock feature (automatically locks itself when you walk away and unlocks when you are close and tap your smartphone)
PIN code-protected iOS & Android app
Unlocking is also possibly by knocking or shaking your phone, elminating the need to take it out of your pocket.
Geolocation informs you about your bike’s location.
The main unique selling point compared to the others will probably be the fact that this lock can be used for so many more purposes than securing a bicycle. Its long cable lets you lock much more posessions.
Versatile lock suitable for more than locking bicycles. Its adjustable mounting bracket with 6 foot steel cable allows for attaching to bikes, mopeds, motorcycles, strollers, snowmobiles and even grills.
