About

Ever get locked out of your house? Can't call a friend because your phone died? Most SmartLocks can only help you so much. But wait!!! What if your SmartLock dies too?!?! Don't ever think about "installing" a SmartLock ever again! Get Kleidoma, the world's first installation-free rechargeable SmartLock that installs in seconds!

Kleidoma Ranks as #5 on Reddit Homepage

On August 23, 2014, the Kleidoma project was posted on the Reddit DIY category. Inventor Dominick Lee designed a custom RFID door lock for college students hoping that it would be an intuitive way to provide quick access to a door without using a key. Days later, the post became very renown and is searchable as “Got Tired of Dorm Keys…”. Weeks later, several major revisions were made to the prototype to provide ideal functionality.

Why its MORE than just a SmartLock

Installation Free

Kleidoma is the world’s best installation-free SmartLock. It is held to your door by heavy duty neodymium magnets. Kleidoma works with virtually all deadbolts and can quickly be attached and removed whenever needed.

Smart and Scalable

Kleidoma works with Androids, iPhones, and Windows phone. However, it’s a SmartLock that works with more than just Smartphones. Kleidoma is one of the most versatile SmartLocks that offers a physical accessory port. This means you can use a fingerprint reader, RFID reader, NFC, light sensor, WiFi, Zwave, keypad, RF remote, and virtually anything you can dream of!

Key Assist

Kleidoma makes it easier to your existing key with your deadbolt! Most other SmartLocks either require you to replace your entire set of keys or have a gear system that requires you to exert much force to unlock your door. Kleidoma’s patent-pending Key Assist feature allows you to effortlessly use your existing keys to lock or unlock your door. With a responsive algorithm that detects micro movements to the nearest milisecond, Kleidoma knows when you have inserted your genuine key. In case your lock is being picked, Kleidoma powers down to prevent the deadbolt from being turned. Simply insert your key and gently push…Kleidoma does the rest!

 Emergency Unlock

Away from home? With Kleidoma, you can instantly give one-time access to a friend or loved one, just by knowing their phone number. Kleidoma’s patent-pending technology allows you to send one-time access to anyone with a mobile device, even if you are half way across the world!

Instant Key Sharing

Have friends coming over? Want to share access with your girlfriend? Kleidoma allows you to easily share keys and manage access privileges on any internet browser. You can easily administer and revoke access rights from anyone on your list. For example, friends can have limited access to your door but your colleague can have full access to the door and invite other people as well. What’s more? You can even allow certain people to use the Kleidoma app offline, so if they don’t have a data connection, they’ll still be totally fine.

AutoLeave and AutoLock

Leaving your house or apartment? Kleidoma will automatically lock your door when you close it. There’s no more hassle with keys. Simply hold the Kleidoma button and it will trigger AutoLeave, which detects when you close your door. Forgot to lock your door? No problem! If Kleidoma is idle and unlocked for over a specified amount of time, it will automatically lock your door for you. No more worries about the door!

 Accessible to Everyone

Kleidoma is designed to be accessible to everyone, even the impaired. Kleidoma emphasizes on the ease of use through the simple mobile interface, glass lit capacitative touch button, and the audible chime that indicates when the door is locked or unlocked.

Powerful yet Efficient

Many other SmartLocks in the market power their devices with non-rechargeable AA batteries or lithium batteries. We have taken into account the more efficient and environmentally friendly methods for powering our device. Kleidoma is the world’s first rechargeable SmartLock that can last for over one thousand turns per charge. It can easily be recharged via any USB port. It’s also one of the first SmartLocks which allow users to connect a USB charger to a wall outlet for uninterrupted usage.

How Kleidoma Started

Kleidoma was initially made when avid inventor and programmer Dominick Lee arrived at Purdue university. Due to the inconvenience of carrying and using keys to lock and unlock the door, he wanted to create a SmartLock solution – but not just any solution – a solution that must be installation-free, rechargeable, and work with more than just a smartphone. After spending several months developing numerous prototypes and hundreds of test-builds, the Kleidoma SmartLock was born. Meanwhile, he worked with some talented individuals to refine this project into a great product that would allow us to turn any door into a SmartLock in seconds.

Today, Kleidoma is the only SmartLock that has an accessory port for limitless possibilities of communication. The SmartLock is no longer bound to a Smartphone!

Risks and challenges

We expect our manufacturing partner in India to start production in early May 2015 and hope to make our first shipments by January 2016. Throughout this time, our team will take the best effort to produce and test our product to ensure that you receive the best quality possible. We don't expect much complications, but since we are manufacturing the product overseas, slight delays in manufacturing or shipping are possible. We are determined to get the product to you near the dates promised. Under any condition where our product faces delays, we will let you know on our "Kleidoma News" page and via email newsletters. We are fully dedicated to bringing you optimal quality and full functionality as promised in our video and descriptions. We hope you'll enjoy using Kleidoma as much as we do!
