App Tracking Features for Added Security

The Sesame app is where the device really shines. If you’re expecting guests, you can share your digital key, allowing them to open the door while you’re cooking in the kitchen.

A notification is sent your mobile phone when someone opens or locks the door. This feature is very handy when you’re at work or out of town.
