Lockitron Thanksgiving Update & Black Friday Special

With the scent of roast turkey and pumpkin pies in the air, we wanted to give you a quick update on our progress in bringing Lockitron to your door as well as a special opportunity to get Lockitron for a great price if you missed our campaign.

Black Friday Special - $20 Off Your Lockitron Reservation

If you haven’t grabbed your Lockitron yet, this weekend is the best time to! Starting tomorrow morning, for three days only, reserve a Lockitron for $159 – a $20 savings! Make sure to get your spot in line now - you won’t be charged until your Lockitron is ready to ship next year.

Production Updates

Below we’ve included a few photos of some of the latest Lockitron prototype components. For strength and rigidity, the back of Lockitron is a single piece of aluminum. We’ve also built a number of demo stands to show off Lockitron – these are complete, working mechanical prototypes mounted on real locks.

On the software side, the new version of the Lockitron iPhone app is nearly ready for its initial release. We’re currently working out all of the kinks and we hope to have it in the App Store soon.

We’re also redesigning our Android app to take advantage of the unique features in Android phones. The most obvious example of this is our NFC functionality that allows you to unlock your door by swiping your phone past a Lockitron NFC tag. Stay tuned for sneak peeks of the new version.

We’re Incredibly Thankful for your Support

For our supporters in the United States, we hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Thank you for your ongoing support in helping us replace keys.
