Auto Unlock - Nuki opens your door automatically

Simply ring the bell to open the door

With Auto Unlock, you can simply ring the bell to open the door when you come near the Opener. Your smartphone remains in your pocket.

Nuki uses the location of your smartphone to detect when you leave your home. If you approach your home again, the Nuki app is preparing to activate “Ring to Open”. When you reach your door, you can simply ring the bell to open the door.

You can activate Auto Unlock by tapping on the Opener in your Nuki app. Then open the settings and activate “Auto Unlock”.

How to improve the quality of the Smart Actions and especially the Auto Unlock

  • Activating Wi-Fi improves the quality of Smart Actions, since it can help to determine the location of your smartphone.
  • Due to energy-saving settings of your smartphone, you may have to wait a few seconds before Auto Unlock opens your door automatically. To avoid this, you can simply wake up your phone by pressing the home or power button on the phone, just before you arrive your door - and the Nuki Auto Unlock will work even faster.
  • If you use an Android device, you should disable the battery optimisation for the Nuki app, so that the Nuki app receives the location data, which are required for Smart Actions, without delay from the operating system.
  • With the Auto Unlock Expert Settings you can customize the configuration for the automatic locking actions to suit your individual needs.
  • The Auto Unlock Info Screen shows you a map where you can track the current state of the Auto Unlock. There are also the Auto Unlock expert settings, which allow you to configure different actions for geofece events.
