The smart way to protect your home
Home security is one of the most important considerations for many UK homeowners. That’s why Newview has teamed up with Kubu Smart Locks, which are factory fitted to new doors, or can be retro fitted to compatible doors.
Smart locks put you in full control of who can enter your home, and when. The locks are keyless so there’s no more hiding spare keys under doormats or plant pots.
Whenever the door is locked or unlocked, a sensor in the Kubu lock sends a message to the user’s phone. If anyone attempts to force the door open, a message will be sent to the user and they can contact the police.
Kubu smart locks are designed to give homeowners peace of mind that their home is safe and secure even when they are out at work or away on holiday. The door’s locking system is connected to the Kubu app via your home’s wifi.
- Check the door’s status at any time and from any place.
- Share keys remotely with other family members or close friends.
- Receive notifications every time the door is locked or unlocked.
- Geofenced self-locking meaning you should never get too far away from your home leaving your doors unlocked.
Why fit a smart lock
Smart locks allow you to open & lock doors in a way that suits you. Whether you choose uPVC or composite, using the latest technology, such as Kubu, let’s you open and manage your home’s security your entrance door in a way that suits you via your smartphone.
Always have a ‘spare key’ handy
Never get caught locked out without keys again and always stay in control of who’s coming in & leaving your house. With a smart lock you can also send mobile keys to family and friends, giving you total control of who you let into your home. You can select to give access for a just few hours, days or weeks at a time.
Kubu smart locks
The Kubu Smart Lock has been developed to give homeowners the ultimate piece of mind that their home is secure. With the Kubu Smart Lock installed and activated, your customer has the ability to check whether their door is locked or unlocked at anytime from anywhere via their Smartphone.
Not only does it check the status, it can notify your customer whenever the door is locked or unlocked, it can be shared with members of their family and it will let them know when they’ve left home without locking their door.
Kubu is one of a range of smart locks available, and they vary a fair bit when it comes to price, functionality and appearance. Consider the following before you start shopping around.
Check your lock
Installation can be tricky and needs to be carried out by a professional, and if you don’t have a compatible door, completely impossible. Make sure you get your doors checked before buying a smart lock, or better still, install a factory fitted door with smart locks pre-fitted and ready to go.
Smart home integration
If you’re after a truly smart home experience, check the smart lock’s compatibility with Alexa, Google or Apple. This can make things even easier, and you may be able to control multiple devices in combo with your lock.
WiFi or Bluetooth
Not all smart locks work in the same way and some might not be able to be controlled remotely without something connecting it to the internet. Check if the lock you’re planning to buy allows remote access if you want to be able to lock and unlock the door from while you’re away from your home at the shops, work, or even abroad.
