I could see this being really useful in the few circumstances where having logs of which user unlocked it would be essential. For the vast majority of uses the fact that it could run out of power is a big downside. You would need to bring an external battery pack or a charger + extension cord in case the battery ran out. The battery life had better be measured in years or it's more of a gimmick than being actually useful.

This is David from F?Z Designs. Thanks so much for the write-up. These comments are all very good. Tom's has a very astute following. Here are a couple observations:
-Noke is water resistant.
-If the battery runs out (after about 1 year of use and several warnings in the app) you can "jump-start" the battery to open the lock and access the battery for replacement.
-Fingerprint tech would drain the battery and add to the cost more than we'd like.
-It does work great and the sharing and tracking is a very nice feature

Hi David, triple posting is how tom's crappy comment system says "Welcome".
Reading comments, taking notes and (eventually) responding is THE way of doing things today imho so good luck with your project.
