Ultraloq AB UL3 BT Smart Lever Lock, Aged Bronze review

You can just knock on your phone to open the door, even when it’s in your pocket. You’re in. With or without phone. Ultraloq UL3 BT smart lever lock is designed to be “Real Keyless” for maximum flexibility and convenience. You are free to use fingerprint, code, key or smartphone to unlock.

Fingerprint Identification

95 fingerprints can be enrolled. Everyone’s fingerprint is unique and no one can steal it from you. This advanced fingerprint technology uses a scratchproof, dustproof and waterproof sensor to make unlocking easy and secure. Identifies you in less than 0.5 second and works well for kids and the elder.

Knock/Shake to Open

Knock to Open You don’t have to open app. Just knock on your phone four times, even when it’s in your pocket and you’re in. (For iOS only) Shake to Open You can just wakeup your smartphone’s screen and shake your phone to unlock your door. No need to open Ultraloq app. (For Android only).

Up to 1 Year Battery Life

3 AA batteries. Up to 8,000 times access. Low battery alerts on OLED display and App. Innovation in clutch design makes Ultraloq more reliable but 50% less power consumption than traditional clutches.

Strong Password

“Anti-peep password” ensures that strangers can’t steal your password by looking at worn-out keypad digits or watching you nearby when you enter the password. This function allows the user to type in any number of random digits, and can still gain access as long as the 1 correct password is embedded in the longer set of numbers.

Smartphone Control via Bluetooth Low Energy

Your smartphone is now your key. Just unlock your door using the Ultraloq App on your phone. Ultraloq UL3 BT uses Bluetooth Low Energy which means that Ultraloq will keep working even in the event of power or internet outages. In Ultraloq App, you can also view users, logs of who’s entered and even clone users when you install one more Ultraloq.

Ultraloq App

The app exists. It shows you the locks. It works most of the time to open them. It has difficulty maintaining a connection when performing administrative maintenance. It lacks the ability to move most of the administration work from the lock to the app. It *does* keep a security log of who has successfully used the lock and any unsuccessful attempts, as well as administrative logins; however, it is difficult to maintain a connection long enough to download the log. It does monitor rough battery status, but I have found this to be very unreliable.

Ultraloq AB UL3 BT Smart Lever Lock, Aged Bronze performance review

Usage – Biometrics: The reader wakes up very quickly, and when it gets it right on the first try, it is amazingly fast. However, your mileage will vary based on the placement of your finger (relative to when you originally recorded it), the weather (if it is cold or very dry, the reader may have more difficulty than during warmer weather), the cleanliness of the reader (obviously, if it is smudged with mud, it won’t work so well) and the condition of your chosen finger. One trick that works when it’s cold or your skin is dry – touch the surface of your finger to your forehead, then touch the reader, and the additional transferred skin oil aids the reader in picking up your whorls and ridges.

Usage – Keypad: The keypad stays asleep (and dark) until you need to use it, then it wakes up. You type in your code and press the enter key, which is a symbol (look at the picture of the keypad if you don’t know what I mean). I have only had one person that couldn’t figure out how to use the keypad, and to be fair, there’s no indication that you need to press enter, but everyone else, from delivery drivers to cleaning services, figured it out on their own.

Usage – Manual Key: NR. The keys exist for emergencies and should not be used as a regular means of opening the locks. The company says this, our locksmith said this, and they definitely feel flimsy.

Usage – Bluetooth: NR. Honestly, none of us use this. I tested it and it works, but a sample size of one test use is insufficient for a rating.
