Big News: The Smart Lock and Video Doorbell Combo is HERE!

August 14, 2020

Think of all the big dynamic duos in history…

Batman and Robin.

Baskin and Robbins.

Cookies n’ Cream.

Peanut Butter and Jelly.

They all work seamlessly together, complement one another, and make sense.

This concept is exactly why we’re beyond excited to bring to you our exclusive line of front door security bundles with LaView Security.

We’ve paired our smart lock models to work in the same app with LaView’s newest video doorbell cameras. The result is a collaboration that brings you full control of your front door security, whether you’re home or not.

We’re giving you a rundown of:

  • Why a smart lock and doorbell camera combo?
  • How does the video doorbell work with our smart lock?
  • Where are we headed next with this exclusive collaboration?

 

Why a Smart Lock and Video Doorbell Combo?

Like we said at the start, there are just some pairs in life that MAKE SENSE. And that was a big part of our decision process. The collaboration between us and a video doorbell developer had to make sense. It’s not a cash grab by either company.

In fact, we’re both providing solutions in our markets that are higher quality, more sophisticated, and even more affordable than our competitors. 

LaView made sense because they have a very similar goal to us. Both companies are dedicated to creating safer neighborhoods everywhere, with home security solutions that are accessible and intuitive for everyone.

We’re committed to that, and so is LaView. Plus, we wanted to work with a brand that is established in the security camera industry with years of delivering solutions that make a difference in people’s lives. LaView checked that box too with over 7 years in the home and business security industry.

They’ve put in the time and effort to develop video doorbell solutions that go beyond that run-of-the-mill stuff that other companies are putting out. It’s that elevated R&D process that we respect and follow in our own smart lock development.

We’re not just slapping our logos together and calling it a day here. We worked closely with LaView to develop a front door smart home integration that works together from the ground up, seamlessly in the same app.

 

How Does the Video Doorbell Work with Our Smart Lock?

It’s as simple as downloading the free Hugolog app or free LaView app and following on-screen instructions.

Sound too good to be true? It’s not!

LaView’s latest DB5 video doorbell and DB6 video doorbell camera connect to your existing WiFi network and allow you to view your doorstep and answer the door with two-way audio right from your smart phone.

In their app, you’ll find an option that allows you to pair a Hugolog smart lock, which will allow you to lock or unlock the door remotely with a single touch. That means when family or friends drop by you can see who’s there, greet them, and unlock the door to let them in, all without ever leaving the couch.

It’s your world, your home, your couch, your lazy Sunday… We aren’t judging! Don’t get up if you don’t have to!

If you’re away from your home, you can do all of those same actions.

*Note: for remote lock/unlock with the smart lock, you’ll need the Bluetooth Gateway accessory! Make sure you choose the option to add that accessory on the drop down tab if you want the remote lock/unlock function to work!

The same can be done in the Hugolog app. You can choose the option to pair a LaView Security camera and follow the on-screen instructions to complete the pairing process in just a couple minutes.

The smart lock and video doorbell bundles feel like the complete package for front door security. 

 

Where are We Headed Next with this Exclusive Collaboration?

We’ll let you in on a secret… We already have compatibility with LaView’s indoor WiFi cameras. Just the same way you can view your doorstep and then use our smart lock to unlock the door, you can view the interior of your home with their super convenient indoor cams.

We didn’t want to stop at video doorbell and indoor WiFi camera integration. We worked with LaView to ensure that the expansion of their smart home camera line works with our smart lock, so you can view your entire home and take control of your door lock all in one place.

Look out for an update as LaView brings their outdoor WiFi Battery Camera and Floodlight Camera to market and we provide even more options for smart lock and security camera integrations!
