UNION CITY, Calif., Oct. 26, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Today, the creator of the popular ULTRALOQ Z-Wave smart locks, U-tec, has announced to join the Works with Home Assistant program as a Z-Wave partner.
ULTRALOQ U-Bolt Pro Z-Wave launched earlier this year, is the only Z-Wave smart lock in the industry that has a fingerprint recognition feature as well as integration with compatible Z-Wave wireless communication-enabled products.
What sets Z-Wave apart from other wireless communication technology like Wi-Fi and Bluetooth is that it is more energy-efficient – using low-energy radio waves to help smart devices communicate quickly with each other – and has a larger operating range.
When connected with the Home Assistant system, the U-Bolt Z-Wave Series smart locks can interact with other Z-Wave-compatible products that support Home Assistant, even when users are miles away from home. (Z-Wave stick required).
Remember the epic romantic scene with the dimly lit room, slow, soothing music in the background, a bottle of wine, and flowers on the bed? Yes! U-Bolt Pro will not bring users wine and flowers, but it will automatically activate the music, turn on the lights, or even set up a comfortable indoor temperature. The perfect mood for a romantic night with partners will start with the touch of the fingerprint sensor without any wiring.
As a partner, U-tec and Nabu Casa will be working together to ensure the best experience for connecting ULTRALOQ Z-Wave smart locks to Home Assistant.
