Brinks solar smart lock seeks smart home friendsThe Brinks Array gains power from light and aims to be part of an interoperable smart home.
[MUSIC] I'm here at Petcom with the Brinks Array. This is a smart dead bolt that connects to your wi-fi and manages the power with this solar panel. And, has a built in lithium battery which recharges in direct sunlight and also, in any ambient light or porch light. And, according to a representative. The one year lithium battery can theoretically last a lifetime in enough light. And, again, the idea is that it supplies the power to wi-fi so that you can lock and unlock your door remotely. It has an iOS and Android app to allow you to do that from anywhere. It also has keypad under the solar panel, so if you have a four digit key you can just punch that right in. The Brinks array is gonna cost under $300 when it hits the market later this year, and they're aiming for a whole bunch of interoperability here. They're gonna try to integrate it with Nest, with HomeTips, with SmartThings. This is an ambitious product, and I'm looking forward to seeing if they hit all the marks that they're going for. [SOUND]
