Solidor launches smart handles

The Ultion Nuki Plus smart handle and Bolt lock has been added to the Solidor range to give homeowners a smart home compatible security option.

They can lock and unlock their door from their phone, using a Bluetooth key fob, a wireless keypad or fingerprint recognition, and it can also be set to auto unlock as they arrive home. Whichever they choose, there is also a physical key that can be used.

The easy-to-fit smart handle comes with integrated Wi-Fi so, once connected, homeowners can unlock their door from anywhere as well as pair the device with various smart home systems including the Amazon Alexa, Apple HomeKit and Google Home.

Mark Young, group commercial director at Solidor, said: “With over three-quarters of UK homes now containing some kind of smart technology, research shows that it’s not just convenience driving this investment, but the appeal of enhanced security and safety.

“Homeowners are recognising the practical benefits of having different elements of their home connected to smart devices, one of those being the extra layer of control that it offers from a security perspective.

“Using the Ultion Nuki Plus, people can manage access to their property via their preferred smart platform and no longer need to worry about lost keys or getting locked out. As a smart lock that works with multi point doors, the Ultion Nuki Plus and Bolt lock is the perfect product for Solidor and we’re excited to add this smart technology offering to our range.”

When it comes to installation, there is no additional drilling or wiring required to fit the smart elements. It also comes with a rechargeable power pack and can be recharged in situ or by plugging a USB-C cable directly into the door. Even in the event of a powercut, the door can still be controlled by its usual methods or by key.

The Ultion Nuki Plus won the Smart Security category at last year’s T3 Awards. Organised by lifestyle technology magazine T3, these awards recognise innovative design across technology, home and active sectors. It has also been hailed as ‘the best UK smart lock’ by Tech Radar.

The Ultion Nuki Plus and Bolt lock is now available for homeowners to select on the Solidor Door Designer.
