The lock runs on lithium batteries for 500 days and will need replacing or recharging. One can monitor power levels before this happens through the app. Individuals have the option to connect to a nearby WiFi network, which can help lower power consumption.

According to the Kickstarter campaign:

“The Wi-Fi Access Point runs open source OpenWrt Linux and uses 2.4GHz 802.11b/g/n WiFi and a Bluetooth LE 4.0 radio. It’s fully compatible with Arduino IDE v1.5.4 or later — the ideal choice to connect your Bluetooth devices to your home/mesh Wi-Fi network.”

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.
