Shepherd Lock is the only lock on the market that can convert your existing door hardware into a unique touch sensor (No fingerprints, just the touch). This means that you can now unlock your door with a simple touch, all thanks to automotive grade touch™ technology. Don't worry — your existing door hardware will be maintained and AND your existing keys still work even with the Shepherd Lock installed.

The door will only unlock if you have a key-fob or smartphone key within the Intelligent Authentication Zone™. Plus, you don’t even have to take it out of your pocket or purse to unlock your door. 

The Thumb-turn Free™  design allows you to lock or unlock your door from the inside with a simple touch. 

There is also a mechanical back-up just in case. You can access the back-up by removing Shepherd’s magnetic cover.   


Shepherd is the first and only smart lock that can detect and thwart lock-picking attempts and truly protect your home against burglaries. 

Shepherd transforms your existing lock hardware into a sensor. Our Artificial Intelligence technology identifies threats, notifies you, disables the deadbolt, and helps you keep the bad guys out of your home. 

Intelligent Door Status™ gives you the ability to check whether your door is opened, closed, or anywhere in between from the app while you’re not at home.

This patent-pending technology makes Shepherd Lock the first and only product that can detect when a door opens and closes without needing to install additional external hardware, like a door sensor or a magnet.

Using the mobile app, you can manage access to your home by sharing temporary or permanent encrypted keys, schedule single or multiple access time windows, view access history, receive alerts and much more. You’ll know who has access to your home and when.

The electronic key-sharing feature allows you to give family and friends temporary or permanent encrypted keys. You can now give the nanny, maid, and others access to your home without handing out physical keys.

Similar to keyless entry in cars, a touch will only unlock the door if you have an authorized smartphone or key-fob within our Intelligent Authentication Zone™.

The Wi-Fi bridge enables you to control and monitor your lock remotely from anywhere around the world. 

To connect your lock to the internet, simply plug the bridge into a wall outlet and pair it with the lock using the mobile app.

We have also transformed the door lock into a monitoring device by inventing the first and only technology that can detect and thwart lock picking and tampering. Our design is complete, our team of experts is in place, our supply chain partners are ready to go. All we need is your support to bring the Shepherd to market.
