With the new Nuki Galaxy Watch App (Beta) you can open your door from your wrist!
Note: The development of this new feature is still in progress, therefore the new feature is shown as a beta feature in the app. However, it is already possible to use the main locking actions via Galaxy Watches for Smart Lock, Opener and Smart Door.
Requirements and setup
The Nuki Galaxy Watch App is available for Android users in English, German, Italian, Spanish, Dutch and French.
To be able to control your Nuki device via a Galaxy Watch, please follow these steps:
Make sure that your Galaxy Watch is paired with your smartphone and that your watch is available on your smartphone.
Open the Galaxy Store and install the Nuki app on your Galaxy Watch.
Open the Nuki app on your smartphone and tap on the menu in the upper left corner. Now select "Connect Galaxy Watch". The connection to your Watch will be established.
Afterwards all your Nuki devices are displayed.
Select the device you want to control with your Galaxy Watch from the device list. You can control up to three of your Nuki devices with your Watch.
There are a few things to keep in mind when you want to control your Nuki device with a Galaxy Watch. Every action you select is communicated via Bluetooth to your smartphone and from your smartphone to the Nuki device. A direct communication between your Galaxy Watch and the Nuki device is not possible. For security reasons, actions for Smart Lock or Smart Door that you trigger via your watch are only sent via Bluetooth. This way we make sure that you are close to your Nuki device and the door cannot be opened unintentionally. The Nuki Opener is an exception to this rule, as commands can be sent via Bluetooth as well as via internet.
To avoid sources of error, always check if:
the Galaxy Watch and your smartphone are paired and your watch is available on your smartphone.
you have already installed the Nuki app (Nuki Android App version ≥ 2.7.6) on your smartphone. As the Galaxy Watch App is a companion app, the Nuki App has to be installed on your smartphone to use the Nuki Galaxy Watch App.
you have already installed the Nuki App on your Watch via the Galaxy Store.
Bluetooth is activated.
Galaxy Watch and smartphone are within Bluetooth range.
the smartphone is within Bluetooth range of the Smart Lock when you select an action.
