Users can select different opening rules according to their needs. Among them, the hands-free mode unlocks the door automatically when an authorized user gets close to it. Once paired with the optional OKIDOKEYS Smart-Reader, users and their guests can enjoy the freedom to lock and unlock doors using a variety of key options: smartphones, cellphones, smart keys and traditional metal keys. Users can even keep a credit-card-sized RFID card in their wallet in case their cell phone battery loses its charge.
