SAN FRANCISCO (PRWEB) November 16, 2017
Gate Labs, Inc., announced today the debut of its highly anticipated GATE Smart Lock, the world’s only all-in-one, camera equipped smart lock for homes, commercial and short-term rental properties. The Gate smart lock was designed for DIY installation and is available exclusive through the company’s website and retails for $349.
The Gate smart lock is unique in that it is the only device on the market with a built-in wide angle camera that streams live video and audio of all activity outside the front door, and continues to record anyone entering the home and all activity inside the home in the proximity of the door. Other products in the market today only capture activity outside the door or require the installation of stationary camera equipment to see what happens when someone enters the home.
“We know home owners want control, security and convenience when managing access to their homes. We designed GATE to function as your personal doorman”, said Ehsan Saeedi, Gate Labs founder and CEO. “With GATE on your door, you have full control of who comes and goes and real-time audio and video of the entire interaction, outside and inside your home” he added.
Other features that add to GATE’s unique all-in-one design are two-way audio, motion sensor, LED keypad and a keyed deadbolt cylinder that operates with physical keys as back up. The GATE App allows homeowners to lock and unlock the device remotely from any smartphone. The owner can issue one time codes to trusted individuals such as delivery or service personnel for access when they are away. Weekend or short-term rental guests can be issued time-bracketed, temporary codes for access. Facial recognition, among other features, will be added later this year which are automatically downloaded via OTA updates directly to the GATE App.
How does GATE work?
Gate replaces your existing deadbolt. It is designed for do-it-yourself applications and installs in minutes with just two screws. Gate sends the homeowner instant mobile notifications when it detects motion at door, for example, when someone approaches or presses the call button. On the Gate Door App, you will be able to see, hear and speak with your visitor from your mobile device. The device connects directly to your home's WiFi network and streams the live video to your mobile devices over WiFi and 4G cellular networks. Lock and unlock your door remotely, as well as assign temporary or permanent passcodes to your visitors.
About GATE LABS, Inc.
Gate Labs, based in San Francisco, California, is the brainchild of founder and CEO Ehsan Saeedi and his co-founders Harvey Ho and Danial Ehyaei. Gate founders moved often to work, travel, and live busy lives. They didn't always arrive home on time to let in the dry cleaning and laundry delivery company, the grocery and produce box delivery service, or the housekeeper. Many of their friends also expressed a need to give secure verified access to their dog walker, nanny, and have the ability to see their kids come home from school. They realized that it is not necessary to stay at home or struggle with multiple key copies to achieve a convenient modern lifestyle. In 2014, with advanced academic degrees and experience in engineering and business, and recent stints at Google and Qualcomm, Gate founders applied their combined knowledge and experience towards solving this common problem.
