*** Sesame. Your key, reinvented. ***
Your physical key becomes an app in 1 second.

● Leave your keys behind
Just lock and unlock your door using the Sesame app on your phone. Better yet, open Sesame with a knock[1] on your phone or let the magic happen automatically[2] when your are back. Your keys, reinvented.

● Share access
Allow guests in no matter where you are. Control who has access and when.

● Log records
Receive a notification whenever your door opens or closes.

● Installs in seconds
Simply tape Sesame to your door with a single strip of 3M Command tape (supplied). It fits your lock without removing or swapping anything. No tools required.

● Fits all deadbolts
Sesame works with just about any single cylinder deadbolt in the USA/ Canada/ Denmark/ Sweden/ Norway/ Singapore/ Japan/ Malaysia thanks to five-patented self-adjusting mechanisms. Sesame doesn't even need to be exactly at the center of your lock or at any specific angle. It just works with your lock perfectly.

● Long battery life
Sesame lasts about 500 days on lithium batteries (supplied), and sends a notification when the batteries are low.

● Apple Watch
Lock/unlock your door with Apple Watch. If Apple Watch doesn't connect to Sesame via Bluetooth, please turn Watch's Flight Mode on and off, and make sure Sesame is nearby your Apple Watch.

Ok... when it works

Intermittent, which is not the description you want for the front door lock to your house. Auto Unlock works about 60% of the time. It’s pretty rare that it won’t connect at all, but it’s happened. Sometimes it will just decide to unlock when I’m upstairs in my house. User management through the app is a bit intermittent as well. Often, I will get a time out error that it’s not connected to the “candy server” but I’m online and connected to the unit via Bluetooth. I wanted to like this much more than I do, and I have to hear about its failings from my wife every other day, so I will likely go buy a real solution, and retire this fun toy.


Very Functional but incomplete

I got this lock originally from its kickstarter campaign a few years back.

Having use it ever since i can say that it does work pretty accurately for what it offers. It allows you to manually unlock your door, it allows you to lock your door based on a timer and it gets the Bluetooth connection pretty quick and from far away.

However if you use the widget to unlock the door, it still brings you to the actual app to click to unlock. All activities related to the lock remain local to Bluetooth because the wifi dongle is not ready, geofencing and knock to open are beta so basically don’t count until they are officially part of the mainstream app. And last but not least there is no HomeKit to be seen anywhere around.

On a side note: Supposedly homekit could still be reached via software update as apparently apple will allow it, but from that to actually happening is another story.

All being said. If you are looking for a simple lock/unlock device to control your door without your actual key. Sesame could be a good option.

Ohhh and I forgot. Battery life does go a looooooooong way. In a couple of years I don’t remember changing battery on the lock maybe once.!!

I’m having nothing but problems with this. I can not reliably leave my keys at home thinking this will unlock. We have the WiFi module, and the latest version on iPhone X and Xs. 50% of the time I try to use it or more, it will connect, but won’t unlock the door. So I sit in front of the door, like an idiot trying reconnect via BT or WiFi hoping it’ll make the little buzzing sound. I’m at the point where I’m going to smash it with a hammer. Luckily I have an iris system at home and it works 100% of the time.

Update, still has issues. When trying to connect via Bluetooth it cycles between connected and disconnected. Today it only took me 1 minute to open the stupid lock because I’m used to turning BT and WiFi on and off to trick the app into connecting. I’ll be selling this soon.
