Adapted features of the Smart Lock for more efficient control

The Nuki Door Sensor enables a comfortable control of Nuki

When using the Nuki Door Sensor the Nuki app shows whether your door is open or closed. Using the Door Sensor also adjusts some of the Smart Lock's features. This way you can use Nuki even more comfortably and get more information about the status of your door.

Note: Nuki Smart Lock 1.0 and 2.0 are not compatible with the Nuki Door Sensor. However, the Smart Lock 2.0 has a built-in door sensor (beta). The feature adaptations described here also apply to the use of the Smart Lock 2.0 door sensor.

Unlatch duration

The Nuki Smart Lock can pull the latch and is therefore suitable for doors with handles as well as for doors with a knob or a bar on the outside. If you select the locking action "Open door", your Smart Lock will pull the latch of your door.

The duration how long the latch should stay pulled can be defined in the Nuki app according to your individual needs. Select your device in the Nuki app and tap on "Settings" > "Features & Configuration" > "Unlatch duration".

If you have activated the Nuki Door Sensor and selected "Open door", the latch will be pulled until the door has been opened. Once the Door Sensor has registered that the door has been opened, the latch is released and you manually can close the door again. However, if the door remains closed, the latch is released after the defined “Unlatch duration”.

Auto Lock

The Auto Lock feature automatically locks your door when it has been unlocked for a certain period of time.

In order to enable Auto Lock, tap on the desired Smart Lock in the Nuki app and enter the lock settings. Then go to “Features & Configuration”. Here you can configure the “Auto Lock” feature and select the desired time (30 sec - 30 min) after which the Nuki Smart Lock should lock your door.

Automatic locking actions triggered by the Auto Lock feature are documented in the activity log.

If you have activated the setting "Lock immediately after closing", Auto Lock is triggered as soon as the Nuki Door Sensor has registered that the door has been closed.

Lock 'n' Go

There are two options for activating the Lock'n'Go feature, resulting in minor differences in their operation:

  1. Double pressing the button on the Smart Lock unlocks your door and locks it automatically after leaving the apartment.
    - If you have activated the Nuki Door Sensor, the door is locked as soon as the door is closed.
    - If you're not using a door sensor, you can set the time window – the Lock'n'Go duration – under “Features & Configuration” in the Nuki app. After the set time has passed, the door is locked again.
  2. You can also start the Lock'n'Go feature via the Nuki app. In this case, the door is not only unlocked, but also opened. This means that the latch of the door is pulled, since it is assumed that you are currently outside of your apartment. However, the locking process is always the same, whether you press the button on the Smart Lock or use the Nuki app.

Activity Log

Every action performed by the Smart Lock is recorded in the activity log. This means you can always see which user operated your door at what time.
In addition, the activity log for door sensor status changes can be activated. This gives you an exact overview of when your door was opened or closed. You can disable the activity log of the Door Sensor independently from the activity log of the Smart Lock.
