About this project

 

 
With Teodoor, your smartphone becomes your new door key. It installs easily on the inside of your existing lock on a wide variety of doors, providing you with a complete, personal smart lock experience – in truly hands-free fashion. Using state of the art security, user-friendly installation and a well-thought app, while at the same time having a compact footprint with a sleek design.

     

 
Teodoor is designed to complement and complete your main entrance. It’s powered by replaceable lithium batteries and employs the latest Bluetooth technology to deliver a smart and secure home life solution. Teodoor unlocks your door  – all by himself.
 

You can still use your key, your door retains its prime function. But now you have tons of options to go along.
  

 
  

 
We found the perfect formula while investing over 2 years of our time on research and development and by witnessing the current smart lock experience first hand.
 

 
 

 
Teodoor delivers truly hands-free service (unlike many that boast the same yet fail to deliver). Using a complex set of specific algorithms it determines when you’re approaching your door to unlock it, and does it for you. And just like a good doorman, it also locks the door behind you.
 
 

 
 

 
Teodoor senses any door movement when it’s locked and should be secure. You’ll receive a notification anywhere in the world (with the optional Wi-Fi adapter) if anyone tries to force your door open. And when it’s set to Vacation Mode, you’re notified of any activity whatsoever. 

 

 
 

 
The Teodoor app will be available for free on the App Store and Google Play Store. It allows you to give others access rights quickly and easily (regular or restricted access, you decide). The detailed scheduled access functions can be applied in a variety of situations: daily nanny, weekly cleaner, one-time visits and more. And it's highly convenient for bed and breakfast proprietors.
 

 
  

 
Teodoor is flexible, and perfectly happy with a human touch, so it can be turned manually, just like any regular doorknob. In case you ignored that pesky low-battery notification (or just forgot your phone) you can still use the lock. Pretty handy, right?

You can always use your existing keys to unlock your door in case you don't have your smartphone with you.
 

 

  

  
Teodoor is designed to be contemporary yet timeless, refined yet subdued, so it pairs well with any door it’s matched up with. The battery cover and the inner/mounting ring are precisely milled to perfection from aluminium or brass, next to the grooved, easy-grip shaft. 
 

 
Teodoor is available in three color finishes: Pebble Silver, Midnight Black, and Luxor Gold.
 

  
 
 

 

  
Teodoor was designed to be modular and easy to install. Setup is straightforward and takes only minutes (European installation is even faster, and done in seconds). It simply fits on the inside of your front (or other) door, right on your existing door hardware.  

 

UPDATE: Teodoor now supports Swiss cylinders!

This smart lock is compatible with most single cylinder deadbolts (common in North America) and all European cylinder locks. If you’re not sure about compatibility, leave a comment (or send us an email) and include with your lock model (an image is always a plus) and we’ll help you out. 

We’ve tested Teodoor with deadbolts from the following manufacturers: Schlage, Kwikset, Baldwin, Defiant, Weiser, Omnia, and Emtek.
 

 

Here's a Teodoor installation demo, done in a couple of seconds. 
 

 
 
 

Teodoor uses the latest military grade encryption technologies which are also commonly used in online banking transactions. Our Bluetooth 5 capable chip (compatible with Bluetooth 4) has an additional cryptographic co-processor to enable usage of more sophisticated and safer encryption algorithms while using less processing time.

By doing that it also lowers energy consumption, so Teodoor can keep locking and unlocking your door for longer.

We are not using a central based storage system (the shared encryption key never hits our servers), so even we (or malicious hackers) cannot unlock your door.

Only Teodoor and your phone app have access to your lock.

  
 
 

 
You can select the way Teodoor works for your home. Locally, being in close proximity, or globally from anywhere in the world using our specially designed Wi-Fi adapter.
 

 
The optional Wi-Fi adapter enables you to access Teodoor safely via the internet any time. Teodoor works perfectly without, and you can always upgrade later. The Wi-Fi adapter requires a wireless internet connection, a power source, and must be in the general proximity of Teodoor in order to communicate properly (approx. 30 ft or 10 m).
 

 
The Wi-Fi Adapter is available with two different socket plugs: type A (widely used in North and Central America), and type C (rest of the world). 

 
 
 

 
Listed beneath are all the available packages you are able to get through our Kickstarter campaign. Teodoor will retail for $179 and the Wi-Fi Adapter for $69.
 

 
 

 


 
 
 

 

 
 
Along with Teodoor, you will receive a set batteries (CR123A - commonly sold worldwide) that will last for over a year. Teodoor sends you a notification when they are almost empty. Swapping them is a breeze.

 

  
 

 

 

We’ve developed several prototypes over the past two years to ensure we can deliver the best experience possible, before coming to Kickstarter. No empty promises!
 

 
Below is a demo of our prototypes, showing locking/unlocking via the testing app, then manually unlocking and locking. The second video shows hands-free unlocking.

We're a young team of experts, a collective of developers and creatives, who trusts to have built the best and most sophisticated smart lock on the market. We trust to deliver what the costumer needs. Through hard work and long working hours we managed to get to this point

 
Our vision is to bring Teodoor on every front door, in spite of all different locking standards out there.

Kind thanks to our advisors and partners.

Risks and challenges

We developed several working prototypes before coming to Kickstarter. Developing and delivering high technology hardware is no easy task, so we teamed up with an array of experts who have successfully delivered Kickstarted hardware products, and engineers with extensive experience in mass production scenarios. Teodoor was designed specifically with simplicity and mass production in mind, from the ground up; the latest prototype iteration ensures it’s easy to manufacture (and repair) and is built to last. With all of this in mind and on the table, we’re confident we can stay well within the timeline specified.

Now we need your backing, to overcome the last pre-production challenge in the process before manufacture: cost. And because we practice full transparency in everything we do, we’ll be providing regular updates and keeping you posted of any and all developments.
