About

Affordable and feature rich, LIME is the smart lock you’ve been waiting for.

Created to replace your mechanical deadbolt, LIME’s thoughtful design eliminates the frustration of lost keys and bulky keychains.

With the rich features provided by LIME, you get the most convenient and secure user experience under every circumstance - whether you’re coming home with hands full of groceries, leaving for work, going out for a run, locking up for an extended vacation, or welcoming Airbnb guests.

You also have the ability to set temporary passcodes for others, making home security management easier than ever before.

LIME's keyless technology gives you peace of mind with Bluetooth, NFC, RFID, touch keypad passcode capability, and Internet monitoring and controlling through your phone.

We built LIME with Bluetooth capability for ultimate convenience and reliability. Use LIME's Bluetooth Unlocking to easily re-enter your home without pulling out your phone - LIME can be awakened by simply approaching the device or using the ONE-TAP feature. See the GIF here:

If your Android phone is equipped with NFC, you can use this capability to simply tap and unlock LIME. Just another of the many ways LIME makes your life easier. See the GIF here:

LIME’s ensures the integrity of your home security with a clear advantage over a mechanical key. For situations when you don’t want to carry your phone (such as going out for a run), or for family members who don’t use smartphones (kids or elders), RFID is the perfect solution. An RFID card cannot be copied, making it unique to your LIME and eliminating the possibility of unauthorized copies. The RFID can also be managed individually, so if one get’s lost, it doesn’t affect multiple users. With convenient carry options for your RFID via wristband, fob, or card in your wallet, why ever use a mechanical key again?

Forget your phone at home? No need to worry. LIME's front screen is equipped with PIN unlocking, so you can enter your home with it's sleek keypad entry. LIME allows you to set up multiple PINs for multiple users. The keypad can also be used as a management menu in case you don't have the app with you. We want you to be safe and secure, so we built this feature so that you can set it up and use it in case of emergency.

Grant temporary entry from the convenience of your smartphone. Allow contractors or Airbnb guests short-term access completely hassle-free. VARICODE can be temporary, time-specific, and set to auto-expire, making it easy for LIME to set occasional and one-time access to your door, without compromising your security. And best of all, you don't have to be in front of LIME - generate VARICODE anywhere you are.

When you leave your home, you can easily lock with one-tap on LIME. No need to use your keys or phone.

LIME features a companion product called “Gateway”, a bridge that allows LIME to connect to Internet so you can easily interact with LIME remotely to monitor and control the product. It's optional, but we know you will want it!

The LIME APP gives you unprecedented accessibility to your security. It's not only your electronic key, but also your management center. You can share access right to family members, delete unwanted users, view audit trail logs, or generate VARICODE. Even if you’re at the office, LIME will notify you when someone enters or leaves your house, or if someone tries to gain entry unlawfully by pressing the wrong codes repeatedly.

LIME interacts with other devices in your home through its app, which can hook into IFTTT actions to automate common tasks. Set up LIME to turn on the lights when your door is unlocked, or to turn up the thermostat when you get home.

LIME is a complete deadbolt lock and can be installed on any door with a standard deadbolt door preparation. It is easy to install in less than ten minutes by using just a single screwdriver. 

No additional holes need to be drilled, no wiring needs to be run, and no other hardware is needed.

LIME is powered by 4x AA batteries, which means it continues to work even if power in your home is out, and the year-long battery life keeps you from having to buy new batteries all the time.

LIME App has a battery status viewer, and it also alerts of low-battery conditions, offering plenty of notice to get replacements before they're dead.

LIME also has a 9-volt Emergency Power-Contact which ensures entry if you really really forgot to change batteries. There is also a backup key slot, just in case.

If you’re looking for a more simplified version of LIME, look no further: LIME-Lite is the right product for you. The external part of LIME-Lite is a conventional mechanical deadbolt key slot (therefore NFC, RFID, PIN, VARICODE, and ONE-TAP are NOT available on LIME-Lite), while the internal part is the same motorized lock as LIME. LIME-Lite still supports Bluetooth control and management through the LIME app, with the ability to connect to Internet through Gateway.  

If you decide you want more of LIME later, don’t worry! LIME-Lite is completely upgradable at any time by adding the LIME external part, giving you the flexibility to choose the features that best fit your security needs.

We have been providing technology for smart access control systems and smart homes for several years, especially for high-end commercial electronic locks. Now, we want to do more.

We strongly believe that we can make our technology attainable for any modern household, changing your lives in a broader, more meaningful way. That is why since June of 2014, we have been working hard to bring LIME to the world and to your doorstep. 

We have come a long way to get to today’s product through multiple rounds of design, sampling, testing, and improvements. Now, we’re proud to give you a product that most importantly, you can trust. LIME can bring flexibility and simplicity to your busy life. 

It’s time to share LIME with you - we invite you to join us.

How Can I Help?

If you love LIME and want to see it come to life, then pledging now is the greatest gift you can be to our team! We chose Kickstarter to raise funds to complete our vision, but it only comes to life if our campaign is fully funded. That's where YOU - the LIME backers come in. Back our project, share to your friends, and enjoy LIME in your home in just a few short months.  

LIME has come a long way to its current status. The mechanical and electronic design have been tested and revised in multiple runs. Actually the tooling started before the Kickstarter campaign. And LIME App is available on both iOS and Android platforms now. Gateway is in tooling stage too. 

We have confidence in the maturity of LIME. We completed important tests such as end-user firmware-update method that goes easily overlooked by other new projects coming to market. We are working very hard to have LIME delivered to you in a few months. 

We really appreciate your support of LIME on Kickstarter! We have the best rewards for our backers here - see the chart below (notice the difference with retail price). But be quick - limited quantity only!

Risks and challenges

At LIME, we know the challenge of bringing a revolutionary product to life.

Product development, design, sourcing and manufacturing are all huge tasks to tackle. That’s why we’ve spent the past two years building a healthy business relationship with electronic vendors that we trust to help us accomplish our vision. We’ve partnered with experience lock manufacturers to complete tooling and manufacturing of our hardware. We’ve also created a quality process that ensures every unit we ship meets highest quality standards.

We know you are going to love LIME, and we don’t want to underestimate the logistics of shipping LIME to all our backers! We’ve made sure we allocated the proper resources to meet our delivery date and keep our commitment to you.

Our commitment to you also means making sure you, our awesome backers, are well informed of LIME and it’s progress! We promise to keep you updated and work hard to deliver on time, with the highest quality for your home.
