First Matter over Thread Smart Lock For Patio Doors Announced

It’s always a pleasant surprise to hear about any innovations – big or small – for the smart home, but it’s especially pleasing to see the words Matter and Thread mentioned alongside them. Case in point is a new smart lock for patio doors that uses Matter over Thread, which it seems is a world first.

The Smart Lock Matter Tilt/Turn by Danish manufacturer SecuYou aims to provide not only a smart lock for patio doors and windows, but offer the latest in smart home innovation too, with typical Scandinavian design thrown in for good measure.

From a quick look at the company’s website there isn’t a large amount of information regarding these locks, other than it’s designed for doors that open inward, with the lock itself situated on the inside, running on two AAA batteries. The bulk of the lock is made from a metal alloy, which contains the inner mechanics for the lock, as well as adaptor pins. there is no keypad on the device as such with the black portion of the body home to the battery compartment, so control is achieved via your phone (using Bluetooth). The company has stated they plan to introduce a separate keypad in Q4 of 2024.

The lock can be purchased with both the inner and outer halves of the lock, but if customers prefer to keep their existing outer handle mechanism, they can just purchase the inner portion.

Due this being a Matter over Thread device, it’ll connect to a Thread Border Router as well, which in turn allows the lock to be controlled directly within the Apple Home app, for example. This model doesn’t work with the company’s own app.

Despite the product being in a category of its own, the price is still relatively reasonable, at just under 1700,00 Dkr / €231,00 / UK£197.00. You can find more information on this and other products in the company’s range via their website.
