Danish architecture firm BIG has branched into smart home products with the Friday lock, which combines a minimal form and enhanced security features.
Controlled via smartphone, the Friday Smart Lock can automatically unlock a door when it senses the resident approaching, lock it as they leave, or allow them to remotely control who has access to the property.
The Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) designed it to fit on the inside of almost any door in place of the traditional thumb turn, and it is the smallest such retrofit lock on the market.
The device enables users to easily issue “keys” to family, friends, Airbnb guests or delivery people, and to easily revoke them. They can give access for a limited window of time via the app, and they can do so from the other side of the world if they wish.
